where in the world are the spruce girls?

if you listen closely you might just hear a flurry of backpacks being zipped, pencil cases packed, and apples shined--ah, it's back to school!

last month, the spruce girls were on campus for a little summer school of our own. the assignment: a school office that was far from making the grade.

after many afternoons of playground paper tackling, this office is an A+++.

want to see how it turned out? stay tuned for the full story, coming soon in case studies: the case of the avalanche of paper.

all charged up

pottery barn is definitely on the right track with its daily system recharging station. good work hiding cords and getting electronica up off the horizontal. sadly we can't really tell what is going on in the back. from the description it seems like the whole thing should be plugged into the wall. we don't get why we don't see a cord coming down. does it only look good if you have a plug in the middle of your wall into which to plug the whole thing? also, we wish that it didn't come with the white board. it would be much better if they were separate components so that if you're anti-white board like we are you could still have the benefit of a cord-hider recharger. nice work on the three color choices and lots of matching coordinates.
