Mimomito’s got friends.

10 Dec

midcentury mobler

Our buds over at Mid Century Mobler want to offer readers of Mimomito a discount on all online orders. Specializing in Danish and American mid century modern furniture, you’ll discover stunning pieces imported to the US from England and Denmark. Shop MidCenturyMobler.com and get 15% OFF all items using code MIMO15.

Remember Mid Century Mobler? We’ve featured Julian’s SF apartment in our Homes, Sweet Homes feature here. We’ll be featuring a new piece from McMobler a few times a month, and in turn Mimomito will get kicked down some cheese when a reader users our code. It’s a treat for us all, and any money we get will go to paying our WordPress and domain fees! (This means no more awkward begging and panhandling at meet-ups.)

6 Dec

Finally got a big puffy Christmas tree up in our apartment, and our tall friend Thomas helped up string our lights and put our tree topper on for us. Alan and myself like a tree to really lord over us – showering us in holiday spirit. This year I decided to go through the dubious task of making really quick origami butterflies as ornaments. I like a monochromatic and simplistic tree, myself – not droopy with mismatched ornaments.
Our little apartment feels so cozy, finally. I come home all sad and cold from the dismal outdoors to my warm cave. Alan has been perfecting ham-hocks and beans with a side of collard greens. LET’S HUNKER DOWN, Y’ALL. IT’S OFFICIALLY WINTER.
