David Patrick Columbia writes for the San Fran Sentinel and recently featured a sketch diary of his old friend Bob Schulenberg. Bob apparently carried sketchbooks where ever he went and documented NY and Paris in the 50′s and 60′s. it’s amazing how an artist can capture a moment in time with just a pencil. i wish i could but i can barely draw a straight line. i’m inspired to try! do you do it?
well it’s taken awhile to get into the groove after going back to ny for father’s day weekend. it seems like i travel so much that i never get roots down deep. i’m determined to stay put for at least 30 days! still being in ny was fun and shopping with carol for mr.g’s garden was a highlight. especially since the gardenias are blooming! watching the struggle made me want to rush back to my oasis tho!
so home sweet home, back to work, shopping, writing and finally blogging!
i’ve been taking clients shopping so it’s been a great way to get to see what’s hot and happening around town. oohh la la the selection! if you want a vanity, this is the place to get one from a deco dame who’s done with hers!
these pieces were all at a great place called m.a.d.e
they have tons of stuff, even all the old tables and chairs from the historic eden roc hotel.
vermillion was a goldmine. turns out a good friend of mine works there and we’ll be shopping for the store together!
this cool piece was in the sex and the city movie (candace bergen’s office)
these italian legs were so cute
they had a couple vanities
i fell for this one at tyler gallery
and i’m still a sucker for mirrored vanities
not to mention lucite!
FLORIDA oh FLORIDA how i love thee!
being here has brought out my love of nature of course and has got me thinking about changing my life to be more focused on the environment and all that jazz.
i started using this diswashing soap from seventh generation which is made from vegetable oil instead of petroleum. i really love it!
i’m not sure why everyone always says that solar energy technology is being hoarded by the ‘government’ but i found this organization thru one of the antique shops: http://www.solar-aid.org
anyway that’s what i’m up to, besides having figured out how to take out the backgrounds in pics
you use the tool polygonal lasso tool in photoshop. i’m telling you cause i always wanted to know and no one i asked wanted to give up the secret!
i’m having a great time researching art deco and all the trimmings around the time. here are a couple of highlights, i haven ‘t seen any of these films, have you?
finally, leaving ny for a good long stint in sequestered in florida with no interruptions…i hope! well, barring a hurricane or two, i should be ok! well, after a 3 hour delay, my plane is finally here! bon nuit!
hello all! i hope you’re spending a wonderful day together with family and friends. for me it’s all my favorite people together in one place…mom dad, both bros and all 6 of their kids. Dad, thanks for being such a man to look up to, to live up! you’re part of my world every day in every way. ok so it’s a hallmark holiday but i’m glad we’re a sappy country just so i can say i love you here and now! have a great day everyone! xoc
