I've been slowly working on the new column to your right, building out linkage to favorite stores by city along with design glossies, art + indie sites, other most excellent blogs, sites for kids, sites for get the point. Today, I've added quite a few links over there, so click around and see if you spot anything that interests you, or give me a quick shout or slap in the head if I need to add or edit anything.

Speaking of links, here's some from west elm that I've been jonesing for lately. Especially this silver lamp with links shade. Sweet!

bubble lamp, $129
not to be confused with bubble butt
chain link pillow cover, $19, mandarin, ocean, expresso or white
minus the whips, please.
links rug, $139-599 expresso or stem
a string of beauty
