Getting Comfortable …

5 1/2 more weeks (I was 32 weeks here). I’m entering the “don’t even try to guess how much weight I’ve gained or figure out whether I’m wearing pajamas or real clothes” stage of the pregnancy.

Studio Sale

It’s time. The ‘Every Other Year Studio Sale’ is happening next Saturday, September 19th in Eagle Rock (LA). It’s a lot of stuff leftover from projects, shoots, DIY supplies, baby boy stuff, clothes that I fear will never fit me again, etc, etc, etc, even some larger vintage furniture. It’s a lot.

In the midst of this euphoria, it may be hard to understand why your husband/friend/child/etc. has found the only chair near the exit to plop in and shoot daggers at you from across the room with his eyes. Well, Hemingway and Pickett nails shopping for everyone, even dudes. With everything from backpacks to bowties, necklaces to knives and the occasional taxidermy animal, there’s something fun for everyone.

Amsterdam Modern

Amsterdam Modern is a deceivingly large warehouse near Echo Park, filled to the brim with unique mid-century Dutch furniture and accessories. It’s where I have bought SOOO much furniture (including my current sofa) and when I was doing the show I would make weekly trips here and pretty much fill up my CRV. Owner Ellen… Read More …
