Have a Treasurelicious Tuesday (Inc. Magazine, December 2008

Here we go, the second installment of Treasurelicious Tuesday. A day where I review items that I have found in a magazine/online or from one of our Treasurelicious users!

Today's Treasurelicious list is taken from an December 2008 interview by Inc. magazine with Christiane Lemieux, founder of DwellStudio, a bedding, table linens and other household goods company. Her designs can be seen in 1,000 U.S. retailers including Target.

Pack Max Duo (for dropping off kids from school)
Ok, granted, this one is listed under What I Covet, but still, it's a bit nuts. Nuts 'cause it's $2,449? Nope. Nuts 'cause you need to know Dutch in order to read the website?
No. It's nuts because I have no idea where you would store helmets, bags, jackets and such for two kids and where in the world you would park that thing? How about you just get a tricked out stroller instead?

Pantone Cotton Swatch Files (for her work)
This I understand. It is for work. But at $4,200.00 I hope she has it insured (and I bet she can't tote all the notebooks on the above coveted bike).

Lavin Ballet Flats (for getting around in style)
Hooray for practicality! Stilettos in NY make no sense. Oh wait, they are $500? Good-bye practicality.

Magna-Tiles (for the kiddos)
Sure they look fun, but having to build houses for your Barbies out of shoe boxes builds character! (Even if the Barbies never get to stand up straight because the boxes are too short.)

I also feel the need to point out that in the article photo, the kiddo is actually playing with the $4k Pantone samples.

See you next Treasurelicious Tuesday!
