studio makeover: the big mess


I just removed all the books from this bookshelf so I could move it, only to find that J has screwed the shelf to the wall! Ugh. He is a bit paranoid about earthquakes.

During the “move” I discovered this gem from my college collection: Ray Gun issue #6:


Cover story is “on the road with Sonic Youth.” It also has a story and photos profiling the up and coming stylists Todd Oldham and Mark Jacobs styling “Trailer Park Chic”; a story by Frank Black (of The Pixies), interviewing The Reverend Horton Heat; and an article by Michael Stipe titled “From Los Angeles to Athens, Georgia” (that story has been ripped out, and, I suspect, was on the wall in my college dorm room … Go Dawgs!). I wonder if all the stores profiled in the story “Record Shopping in the U.S.” are still around. I know Lou’s Records in Encinitas is still here, and I think Waterloo Records in Austin is still around. But my favorite thing in the magazine is an ad for David Carson Design. “Nail it,” his ad says. Love it!

Odd coincidence of note: David Carson lived in Del Mar, California, then moved to Charleston South Carolina; I grew up in Charleston, South Carolina, then moved to Del Mar, California.

nostalgic for: charley harper

charley harper books, available at SoLo


Most of my elementary school days were spent in Cincinnati, Ohio. I remember going to the zoo and asking the ticket lady for extra stickers … they were designed by Charley Harper; my mom and I had a whole stash of them. Since then I’ve moved at least a dozen times, and unfortunately the stickers are lost. But I’d love one of these books (available at SoLo) to fill the void! I love how Mr. Harper was able to convey a peaceful quiet with just a few strokes. Lovely.

for your little one …

custom MRS. DOUGLAS notecard from our soirée collection


Our “Mrs. Douglas” notecard is named after my fourth grade teacher. She was the best! No silly stars or useless spelling lists for her class: she was more into gathering seed pods from the playground, writing stories, and listening for bird calls. This notecard is perfect for the little one who is still too young to write a real note … just have them scribble a little something in the window atop their name. The back has lines on it, so they (or you) can write a proper note.

paper squirrel favors


So after this squirrel post I promise I’ll give squirrels a rest for a while. But seriously, how sickingly cute are these paper squirrel favors? I’d write a guest’s name on the “log” and they could double as place cards. Almost makes me want to throw a party! (If only it weren’t for the cooking and cleaning part!) You can download the free template from Martha Stewart here.
