Chris and I have been redecorating. It's been a bit challenging because I honestly expected him to just say 'go for it' since he likes what I do most of the time. So I was surprised when he had some pretty serious opinions. Like - I don't want that brand new boring sofa, I want our room to be funky and cool. Umm ok, I had only picked out the boring new sofa so he would stop complaining about the the "uncomfortable" stylish one we have now.
He wanted to add the craziest fabric to the new sofa I had picked out. Thank you rational sales guy at Room and Board for helping me talk him out of it. [I would have had a very expensive headache for years to come]. So we still have our old sofa still but got rid of a couple of things, found a few more cool vintage items on Craigslist [how amaze balls is Craigslist for stuff like that?] But now we need a good rug. Something jazzy and not boring as he puts it. Something that ties in all of our colors. We've got a lot of red going on, some lighter greens and neutrals.
I haven't liked anything till I saw this upcoming rug from Angela Adams.
Made of Plush, New Zealand Wool I think it might be the one.
Available May 1st [ahhg I have to waitttt]
PS. I also just discovered this section of her site with floor models of furniture and discounted rugs!
there is some pretty spiffy things happening there too.

I'm not sure about where you live, but here in Long Beach [LA for that matter] Ink is big. I can't commit to art that permanent and my mom is so happy to have the ultimate in art damaged kids [that I can't decide]. I thought I would spoof all this fun body art around here this year with a Mother's Day card.
Funny enough, I was at the market the other day and the fella checking me out had a lovely very colorful robot tattoo on the inside of his forearm. He and I were chatting about it and he said, well I never PLANNED to get a tattoo. My best friend is a tattoo artist and we got to drinking one night and I woke up with it. I said well, that's the best dang drunk tattoo I've ever seen! He said his mom was going to be so bummed and I told him about this card. Violá. perfect in every way.

new in the shop today
I had a conversation recently with a 20-something where I had to explain that when I was little there was no Nickelodeon, or cable TV. In fact we had 5 channels on a good day when the rabbit ears worked with a lob of tinfoil. ahhh the good ol' days. She was mortified for me, we both giggled at the age difference and I couldn't let the conversation go to waste so I turned it into a greeting.

Ahhh Wayne Thiebaud, my soul brother in art.
Raised in Long Beach, Ca he later moved to Sacramento where he has lived most of his life. He taught art at Sacramento City College for a bit [can you imagine?] and later at UC Davis.
Mr. Thiebaud has an exhibit that just opened in Laguna Beach and will run through early June
Though he has lovely figure work and landscape paintings. I'm most in love with his food series. Cakes and Pies and Americana.
Can't wait to see the show!
