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.
