Herewith, a brief tribute to my dear father (Eddie, as I called him – dad just seemed to generic) who I miss terribly. Quite a looker in his day. I was fortunate enough to get his wavy hair, gardening and carpentry skills. He was the very best.

Wanted to share some mid-modern love. Got this little gem at City Issue this weekend. It’s circa early 70s and probably Scandinavian. Not really sure what it is – maybe a Viking ship. That’s the beauty of abstract – it is whatever you want it to be and something different to everyone who sees it.


Clearly Vintage Inspiration

I’m a big fan of 50s decorative art glass. The clean simple lines almost remind me of fashion figures. Over the years I’ve acquired various pieces from family and thrift stores and mixed them with retro inspired pieces from IKEA. And thus my homage to mid-modern glass forms a pattern.

Ahhh, back when a healthy dose of grease in the veins was thought of as good for you. Can’t cook without Crisco! After little Billy polishes off that plate of doughnuts he’ll be stuck to the ceiling and out of your hair. Looks like the fried bird nests didn’t go over too well… is that vomit on the side?
