I recently had a great time designing a couple nurseries for The Animal Print Shop Nursery Project, which were all photographed by the awesome Laure Joliet. This first space was deemed the Fun Lux room, you know, for that baby who loves a little bit of bling and glam without sacrificing comfort. Babies enjoy comfort, or so I hear.

Anyways, the exciting news is that The Animal Print Shop is launching this first nursery with a big giveaway to help one lucky winner create a stylish room for their new kiddo. But what can you win, you say? These three items featured in my nursery design:


$1,000 Gift Card to The Animal Print Shop

Rove Concepts Womb Chair

Oeuf Sparrow Crib

Those are some nice things, yo! And I know, because I picked them out for the room. So, if you need a bit of help pulling together a pretty space for your new little wee one on the way, make sure to click over and ENTER THE GIVEAWAY HERE!

Thanks everyone.

According to the totally masochistic Bromeliad wrap-up of the AT Homies this here old bloggity made it to number 11. Also, I am a Big Boy.

The Big Boys








And I’m the only one retarded enough to have a web address that:

A. Is a joke and not the actual blog title. How anyone could find me is a mystery.
B. Is STILL at a goddamn blogspot blogger address and not my very own real url.

Slacker. Total internet slacking.

The story BTW about my joke blog address is this:

The Boy watches a show called “Trick My Truck”. Seriously. On CMT. Whatever, I watch some stupid shiz too. I started the blog while camping out at my sisters house waiting for the actual Brick House to close escrow. It was done on a whim to document our first home renovation shenanigans and I didn’t really think the whole thing through…

So here we are. A blog I thought maybe my family would read is now a “shelter blog”. Just so weird.

Thanks everyone for reading this crap and for all your comments, suggestions and support.
It’s been invaluable as we’ve gone through this whole house thing for the first time.

And as calbona noted I’m the “best” so I’m going to try a little harder to live up to that.

*An aside, the boy went through everyone’s comments (which were AWESOME) about the blog on the Homie’s page and was like “Your not witty or funny, just wait till all these people meet you in person. They’ll see.” Ahhhhhh, love.

Holler Homies

I know I signed off and all but I just had to step back in and mention that I got a little surprise nomination over at Apartment Therapy 2009 Homies showdown. Thanks dudes, I’m all flattered and shiz.

If you’d like to favorite The old Brick House, I won’t stand in your way. Also, if you want to check out my growing favorite list please do so here.

But why you ask was I so distracted not to notice this radness? Hint Hint:

Is that a f*cking tractor? Oh hell yeah.

Hmmmmm, what kind of tractor worthy projects could be happening ’round Casa de la Brick?

Happy Holidays!
