Doctor your dwelling with gorgeous greenery with today’s well-potted Groupon. For $15, you’ll get $30 worth of pretty plants and pots at Envy Grows, a botanical boutique in the heart of the city that allows urbanites to turn over a new leaf. Though a flytrap-dominated Earth may seem far-fetched, the United Nation's Council on Apocalyptic Likelihood rates the scenario "very likely," the same ranking given to possible world destructions caused by time-traveling dinosaurs and the Transformers. For the time being, you can help postpone the upcoming flytrapocalypse by not bringing any Venus flytraps into your home. That only allows the deceitful plant to learn your habits for later exploitation.
Pictures propped against walls, crammed in closets, or framed with fallen branches and sugar-free maple syrup can't be enjoyed. Today’s Groupon increases art visibility with $100 worth of custom framing from Baas Framing Studio in Madison Valley. Baas's quality frames elevate any art's artful hanging beyond tacky industrial-strength sticky tack, staple-tape staple-taping, and hiring long-armed men to hold your art against the wall.The Case: Toni Jorgensen, the antique shop owner, is hired to polish Amy’s grandmother’s antique vase, when, according to Jorgensen, the cleaning lady came in and broke it. “I wasn’t even here,” says Jorgensen, a single tear rolling down from the outside of her eye. “I was visiting my sick aunt in the hospital.” How does Amy know she is lying?
Gone are the protestations that a slice of cake is too big "or too wedgey." Instead of making a different cake to suit everyone's tastes, get a dozen different flavors for fickle friends. Voted Seattle's best cupcake by Seattle Magazine and Seattle Weekly, and featured in The Seattle Times, Cupcake Royale bakes each flavor daily from natural and local ingredients, including hormone-free dairy products and locally raised fruit. Finish off a long lunch break with a Royale with cheese, a pillow of dark chocolate cake topped with cream-cheese buttercream and chocolate shavings, or chomp a vanilla coconut bunny, adorably fluffy with hand-frosted buttercream. Experts in things that taste good recommend chocolate peppermint party, while fans of sea spray reach no farther than the salted caramel with fleur de sel.
For nearly a half century, David Reed Weatherford Antiques & Interiors has nurtured nostalgia with an epoch's worth of elegant and enduring 18th and 19th century antiques. Within a 4,000-square foot historic Capital Hill home overlooking Puget Sound, heirloom hunters wander into another era, akin to stumbling into a KISS reunion concert. Elevate dinner tables to shrine status with a whimsical navy blue and cream glazed Victorian style pottery jug ($175), or opt for scintillating ceramics such as the pastel hued, flower-festooned Chinese ceramic box, ideal for imbuing rooms with an otherworldly aura and sheltering displaced genies ($385). The metallurgical arts, meanwhile, feature two ambiance fortifying cloisonné vases ornately adorned with delicate floral flourishes and idyllic landscapes ($450 each).
