heat of the jungle

I'm in love with my recent $1.25 book score:
The Complete Basic Book of Home Decorating has been stimulating my 1960s deprived eyeballs. I'm seriously motivated to incorporate some of these"basics" from circa 1976.
This opulent rosy feline bedroom is among my favorite concept looks:

description: Teens with tiny rooms might consider the airy chic of wicker furniture. This small room becomes a real den with the wildlife running riot on the walls and floor. The brilliant color combination of marigold and shocking pink, cuts the apparent size and adds to the intimacy. Desktop and accessories in stark white cut cool down the heat of the jungle.

A few inspired pieces:

grrrr; Beale Loung Chair cb2; Wicker Club Chair; Retro Crosley Princess Phone;
Nancy White, between the backbeat, Oil on plexi. Takada Gallery, sheep rug
Jonathan Adler pillows
;Brass Table Clock; lacquered cube table, color org-ed books, studio nommo wallpaper

China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
I came across this [url=]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.

Oh my goodness that is DIVINE!! And when I say divine, I mean John Water's "Divine." Just kidding. I am obsessed with old decorating books and magazines from the 60s and 70s, my grandmother's basement is a treasure trove of old Town and Country, BHG, Vogue, etc mags. Film really does have so much more texture and you can really see it in this pre-digital image. This is great and it's filled with a Valentine's Day color palette to boot!
