The birch trees near the top are Cole and Sons' "Woods" wallpaper.

I just realized I left off the "beach" part of you name in my blog (hatch)- I'll fix it as soon as I get home tomorrow (I have forgotten how to get into my own blog remotely :)).

I received a Litto Manhattan Crib from Sequins as a gift. The package was missing the crib rails. I have been trying, unsuccessfully, to have someone (anyone) help me to obtain the crib rails. My multiple calls and emails have been completely ignored! This is a VERY expensive crib and I have gotten ZERO help from Carina and Kevin (the owners). I cannot even use the crib! I am in the process of filing a lawsuit.. I don't know what else to do! Please think twice when considering buying anything from Sequins.

it's all about me, really.
