Butterfly wings, fairy tale kings
And each new day undoubtedly brings
Still more beautiful things
Thanks, Bobby Darin, for that lovely segue into a small taste of Branch, a Web site I stumbled across this morning that promotes "sustainable design for living." Just because it's good for Ma Nature doesn't mean it has to be ugly. Note, the beautiful things:
This 14" "Granite Pillow" retails for $188 - a little out of my price range for ONE pillow, but could the woven puzzle design get ANY CUTER? Answer: No, no it cannot.
This "Birdfeeder" is $84, again, a little pricey, but this is what I would want to eat out of if I was a bird! Can you imagine the contrast between the crisp white and the glittering feathers of a little golden finch (my favorite bird)? I would have three of these hanging on either side of my porch, if I could! I wonder if it comes with birdseed...And finally, a "Cortica Chaise Lounge." I won't even mention the price on this (my wallet tried to jump out the window and commit suicide when I peeked), but the beauty of the pure cork is undeniable. If I didn't like eating so much, I would totally buy two of these and display them on our front porch (right beneath the gorgeous birdfeeder above!). Can't you imagine a quiet spring day, perhaps raining lightly, with a glass of lemonade and a book and this chair?
