extreme luxury: the fur hammock by BLESS.

August 25th, 2010 · 3 Comments

Above: Fur Hammock by BLESS — $ 12350.00 Yes, I realize the use of fur for commercial purposes is frowned upon. But it’s also a personal choice, and I’m not about to criticize.

The Animal Print Shop by Sharon Montrose.

August 20th, 2010 · 1 Comment
