Guaranteed not to gallop away while you're eating.

Every once in a while here on the Object Mythology (OM) blog, I get to say something I never thought would come out of my mouth – or type something I never imagined would be typed by my fingertips – whichever. This is one of those moments: Ahem. Today’s blog post is sponsored by horse […]

wewood-chrono-watch-in-black

Well, we have about a month to go before graduation season starts. You know how this goes. One day, you’re just minding your business, re-reading all of my Object Mythology blog posts for fun, and the next thing you know, your robot maid drops off the mail on your coffee table.

Socially Responsible Gifting for Mother’s Day and Every Day!

Toasty warm and snuggly to boot!

Can you believe it’s only ONE month until Mother’s Day? If the wonderful women in your life are anything like those who influenced my upbringing (and shouldn’t we honor ALL of them on Mother’s Day?

Upcycled Elegance: From Buenos Aires Flea Markets to Your Powder Room

Well, it’s April. APRIL 2012. Already. I’m still dating my checks 1999 and signing them with my maiden name, but I’m slow to accept change. Sue me.

Fab Furnishings From La Feria!

Whoever "they" are, they just don't make things like this anymore.

If you follow the OM blog (and you should), you know by now that I am no decorator. I am completely and totally dependent on awesome people like Karen and the Object Mythology Earth-Scouring Treasure Finders (how cool of a band name would that be?) to provide me with an online catalog of fantastic finds […]

Who We Help And Why We Do It

One of my favorite authors of all time, Ralph Waldo Emerson, once said, “It is one of the beautiful compensations of life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.” I’ve seen the quote in a few different forms around the Internet, of course, as there’s nothing like the web for […]

Vintage is The New Retro: Chic Jewelry For That Unique Finishing Touch

For a while now, we’ve seen the retro trends come and go in both fashion and home décor. We’ve seen nearly every major furniture manufacturer pushing some sort of retro design, whether it’s a laminate and vinyl kitchen table and chairs or a 60s-inspired, low-backed living room sofa.
