I've missed you over the weekend! Especially because I have this great slate of photos from y'all to share. Let's get the week going with a look at what's been going on with photos from the Offbeat Home Flickr pool and things we've pinned via the Offbeat Home Pinterest account. Ariel! Whatchoo doing here? Is this a new exercise regimen? It looks FUN. Ladycynamin dropped in on the Flickr pool and shared pics of her craft studio -- and her Star Trek collectibles. Kisså threw a beer brewing/jam party for a two friends and three dogs. GoddessofXanadu is back, and shares her Altar in honor of Hestia, the Goddess of the household. Eve's lovely, beady, floral, mystical bed of my dreams! Dave Shaddix makes LOTS of LEGO creations -- here's his workspace, with these LEGO portraits front and center.

Get it straight from a cat lady, in song form. LOVE this Enterprise coffee table. Normally I'm not into that sort of stuff — but this one is pretty well-made. Bored with lunch?

And I love everything about Ariel's outfit. Thanks for posting! 3 agree Reply I've found myself opening this post a couple times today JUST because Ariel's photo is so awesome. She's like WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE Reply Aww I love when pets pop up in home photos! Some great finds here! 1 agrees Reply Oh man, Eve's bed is the mystical bed of MY dreams. 1 agrees Reply LOVE. Colors and legos and magic. I'm dying for Eve's bedroom!! Reply I adore Eve's bedroom. I especially like the bead curtains around the bed. I love bed curtains, but I have a horrible dust allergy, and I know I would take them down and wash them often enough to keep myself from dying. Beads would totally work, though! Reply Haha, all I can think of is that Ariel is trying to get the attention of/impress/show love to her dog. Because that is how I do it. And my dogs also just sit there looking at me funny…. AWESOME pic. 🙂 Reply Please oh please Ariel tell me where you got those shoes – what brand are they? Do they come in other colours? Are they comfortable? I LOVE me some funky Mary Janes! Reply They're very old Fluevogs. This cut and color is long discontinued, but Fluevog still makes a ton of similar styles with the same "Mini Heel" style: Reply Thank you!
