A Little Bird Told Me…
Summer is over: It may still be sunny, but as far as half-day Fridays go — buh-bye! Denial will work for a while, though, and one item sure to carry you through to cashmere sweater weather is this Singing Bird Doormat by Denis Santachiara ($295). The mat is made of natural coconut (think tropics!), and when stepped on, the bird chirps to announce your guest's arrival. It's a little corny, but it's just so darn cute we had to spread the word. If the bird drives you crazy, you can always remove it.
