Day 25. I’m halfway done with post-grad blogging, woof. What will I do with my time after Day 50? I’ll think about that later. Today I wanted to share something with you guys.

It’s a furniture company called Petrified Design, reigning from Austin, TX.
They’re local. They’re two cool dudes (Ty and Gable). They design beautiful furniture.
Check them out, because I can’t say enough that it’s insane(ly beautiful).


Ty actually made this custom vinyl crate for me. The reclaimed wood comes from Llano, TX and it’s got some pastel colors mixed in it. I kind of love it a lot. It’s a graduation gift from my brother, and yes I teared up on my drive home thinking about the sentiment and thoughtfulness behind this vinyl crate.


This is my favorite side. I can’t explain it, but I love it.

Dear Ty,
Thank you so much for creating this! It’s perfect. In some ways, I feel like it’s a reflection of me. Or is that bringing too much attachment to an inanimate object? I just feel like you nailed it! Because you did.
Anyway, I wanted to give you a note of thanks on my blog because I failed to say them in person. Also, thank you for carrying it to my car- I underestimated the weight of it.

It’s not even halfway full, so I’ll be accepting vinyl as a form of payment, form of gift, form of just-thinking-of-me, etc.

BIG, BIG THANKS to the best brother ever. Love you like xo (Yeah, I’m gonna quote Queen B).
