Just some tidbits, before I head out the door to my non-airconditioned studio to do some sweaty painting :)

at Paris on Ponce.  I found the PERFECT settee for my living room this week, and didn't buy it. When I called them to see if it was still there two hours later - no, it was gone. REGRET, people.
