Pliny The Elder.

Eddie Izzard does a wonderful bit about Pliny the Younger, writing a letter to his dad from Vesuvius... Dear Dad, Get me outta here! Tell Mr. Dog to send ships..." Trust me on this one.

I don't think of black chairs, I think of that gorgeous, blue light fixture!

Pliny might be good in the Toast catalog

I am coveting a pair of Plenty by Tracy Reese wingtips that I saw at Nordstrom. They are fetching, and have a wee little heel.

Also, the All Saints store here is officially open. Sewing machines galore in the windows. I was actually slightly disappointed...I guess I thought they'd mix it up.

Tell the truth now, you found the salt pig after Coffee Lady blogged about the porridge bowl, didn't you? I lurve those Word ceramics. If I were not in a de-acquisition mode right now -- and possibly forever -- I'd be whipping out the Visa card.
I wiki'ed Pliny and now I know about the attempted rescue from Mount Vesuvius.

I like the salt pig. Now I'm off to Google and find out why it's called a pig.

Yes, why salt pig. Lost there :/ But love it! LOVE IT!

And ditto what Paola said.

I think I was in the same store as jbhat. A million sewing machines in the display window and more in the middle of the store that went all the way up to the ceiling. On Lincoln.

The black chairs would be great in my new kitchen. Now I'm thinking...
