Love Exists

Somehow I thought that it was a really good idea to stay up last night and watch the Royal Wedding. I'm paying for it today, thanks to my kids who don't believe in sleeping in.

I was way too young to remember the wedding of Princess Diana and Prince Charles but figured that since I stayed up all night watching Princess Di's funeral back in 1997, then I can bookend my British experience with a wedding!

True Love
Thank you William and Kate for allowing all of us to celebrate with you and for reminding us that love is beautiful.

Happy Birthday Jess!

Jess is not only a great friend but has done a lot to help spread the word about SPUN and we appreciate it very much. She is a lifestyle blogger (amongst other hats) with her fabulous blog, Fresh Jess. Add it to your blog roll and be sure to check her out on Twitter too!

Thank you Jess for your friendship and all that you do. We wish you many happy blessings for your birthday and everyday!

Meet the Collective: Marian Built

Just about every person that walks into the store for the first time comments on our lighting. They ask us where we got them and who makes them.

Chandelier and Pendant Lights
Our lights, along with just about all the other furnishings have been custom made for us by the rediculously talented Michael Marian. Every one of his pieces is made by hand using reclaimed materials which are a part his personal collection. He's probably a borderline hoarder but he can't pass up a good find!

Coffee Table $800
Dressing Room Door w/Vintage Track & Reclaimed Door
We sell the individual pendant lights at the store. Each Mason Jar light includes a light bulb and hook which allows you to plug it in and hang it wherever you like. Perfect for over a kitchen counter, table or above your nightstand next to the bed. Choose from a black or white cord and 25watts or 40 watts. Buy one for $40 or more than 1 for $35/each.

In her memory and with the permission of the Shah family, we will be directing a portion of sales to the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, where Siona spent a month in treatment, in order to help other children who may need the help of Siona's spirit. Please visit Siona's tribute page:
