THIS could very well be the worlds sexiest stool!!

Cowboy Junkie Stool by Fernando Akasaka- now available exclusively through Alexandra Del Lago

The Cowboy Junkie stool is a tribute to Cowboy Junkies band ( – Mr. Blair Woods (manager) and Mike Timmins (guitar/songwriter ) from the Cowboy Junkies band allowed me to name the stool “Cowboy J…unkie”.

The main element of this stool is a saddle because of the stool’s theme & inspiration – the saddle is imported from France and it is made by one of the best French saddleries in the world and it has an exclusive F.AKASAKA design. The saddle is a professional jumping saddle made with french premium soft leather.

The stool structure is made of solid AISI 304 stainless steel with highly polished to mirror finish and it goes with 3 accessories: a jump leather bat, professional stainless steel stirrups and stirrups leathers.

Look at what I found for you!!

I’ve just come across this really cool jewelery collection from a Brazilian artisan… Fernando Akasaka.. Each piece is handcrafted and is unisex (!! perfect for sharing pieces!) … the collection has a beautiful, raw organic feel to it…with pieces inspired by sea creatures, reptile scales, bird claws and it a unique feel and edge!

what do you think? Isn’t it beautiful!?

I could totally see my favorite Zeflings in this…. (if I could style them;-)

(I am totally in love with this photo!! soo much soo that one of these days I want to blow it up…and you”ll either find it at Alexandra Del Lago…or in my bedroom…)

Le Blob would go soo well with Raquel Allegra…

AND…I’d even mix it with..
