Design Blog Profile #3 & a Friday Cocktail

A lot of you are familiar with today's design blogger even if you may not know he has a blog. Eddie Ross was a contestant on Top Design, and if you followed the show, you may agree with me that he should've been among the finalists.

Eddie's blog, Eddie Ross, is a wonderful smorgasbord of design how-to, decorating with antiques and thrift store finds and making the most out of what you have. He also shops a mean streak and sets a beautiful table.

The following three photos are from a spread on Eddie and his apartment featured in Domino magazine a few months ago.

I've mentioned this before, but not only is Eddie talented and happy to share his talents through his blog, but if you leave a comment, he's sure to email a personal response.

To finish out the week, how about a little Friday cocktail? Eva Cassidy is one of my favorite singers. One of these days I'll do a post just on her; it's a wonderful story. In the meantime, enjoy my favorite of all the songs she's sung and have a great weekend.

I think Eddie is a great designer and quite the personality! He's teaching a whole new generation about antiques and flea markets and the value of the "found object." He's really gifted at his craft.

Eva has a lovely voice, thanks for sharing!
