First, my apologies for neglecting my blog. It has been a difficult couple of weeks tending to my sweet cat who is very very sick and keeping the work flow going here at the studio. That being said, here's a delightful link to To Dry For and all they sell are fabulous tea towels. I've picked a few of my faves from a huge selection. A little humor and great graphics never hurts when washing the dishes. Have a splendid weekend!

By this time every year, I start looking longingly at my dusty pile of firewood, long unused here in Southern California and yearn for cooler weather. Anything below 80º would be nice, quite frankly. I love to bundle up in the fall and winter with any one of the dozens of scarves I've amassed over the years. What I don’t have is a faux bois scarf and I am ordering one of these today from the delightful shop of RCA graduate Donna Wilson who creates beautiful and humorous knit home furnishings, accessories & bizarre stuffed dolls. Loving the wood-patterned throw too!

Delightful typographic video. Watch for the potato & ham letters being sauteed, brilliant! Typophile Film Festival 5 Opening Titles from Brent Barson. Handcrafted with love by BYU design students and faculty, for the 5th Typophile Film Festival. A visual typographic feast about the five senses, and how they contribute to and enhance our creativity. Everything in the film is real—no CG effects! Via: Black Eiffel
While I love the design of original Eames tables, the prices are a bit challenging in this economy. When I saw that this Eames-inspired Eliptikal coffee table from Lunar Lounge Design is on sale at $179.99 (+$62.99 S&H) for a limited time, I started trying to figure out if I have room for it. The handcrafted table is 54" long and 23" wide, and it comes in 12" or 14" high. Removable steel legs come in a chrome or semi-flat black finish. The MDF tabletop comes in white, gray, black, red, eggshell, blue, brown, orange or pink. A really fine alternative to the slightly larger original Eames version at $649!

I love camo print on just about anything, in fact today I'm wearing a 10 year old camo mini skirt that I just can't get enough of. When I saw that Bape is releasing a Camo Side Chair, I really got excited. The iconic Modernica Eiffel Side Chair design comes in three Bape camo colors – green, blue and pink. The chair is a collaboration with Modernica and will come to Bape stores on September 4th. The green colorway is a Bape exclusive and the blue and pink are exclusive to Modernica.
