canine design: dog in an Eames chair

Well, my long-awaited Eames chair (from Cailifornia Modern Classics) finally arrived last week and I managed to put it together myself and even got it to the point where it was sturdy enough for my dog to hang out on it.  Here’s Skip giving his best mid-century modern doggy pose…

weekend inspiration: old + new

The weekend is finally upon us after a (very) long week.  My plans include some vintage and thrift store shopping/antique hunting, and creating a new piece of art for my walls.

As far as “old” goes, here is a picture of a few of my favorite vintage jewelry items, nestled on an antique silver tray:

And for “new” I plan to re-create my own version of this adorable Jack Russell made by artist Denise Fiedler.
