Dwellings Fall 2011

Happy Sunday!

Hope you all had a wonderful Fall weekend!
It was absolutely beautiful weather here all weekend long.
We had a chance to get out and enjoy some of the Midwest Autumn leaves today.

I know I mention my older brother's store Dwellings from time to time.
I thought I would share some Fall 2011 photos from Dwellings.
I also have big news to share about Dwellings today!!!

This morning Dwellings had a special visitor.
The editor of Apartment Therapy stumbled upon the store.
Guess what???
They will be doing a feature on his shop!!!

I'm so excited for Michael.  He really is so talented!
He works really hard at what he does and does it so well.
You would never expect his home decor shop to be in LeClaire a small little river town.
He is truly my biggest inspiration and definitely one of the people I look up to most!

I will be sure to let you all know when the feature posts.
I can't wait to share it!
Michael is totally not a self promoter and would probably nearly die if he read my post today.
He is extremely modest. 
Oh well....what's a little sis to do! 
Somebody has to tell everyone how great her big bro is!

I keep telling him one day he IS going to let me share is home.
It is absolutely the perfect mix of fresh modern and industrial vintage. 

Isn't this stool FAB!
I so want this.

The store is never the place twice.  There is always a fresh new look.
He is constantly changing the merchandise with the season.

I'm also excited because I will be helping out at Dwellings for the holidays.
If you are looking for a fun weekend trip in the Midwest I highly recommend LeClaire, Iowa.
Stop by and visit Michael at Dwellings!  We are only 2 1/2 hours from Chicago.
