A few weeks ago, we received what I thought were multiple copies of telephone books delivered to our door. Turns out, it was a home furnishings giant that went full on cray cray with their catalogs. “WTF?” I thought to myself. “Do something about it!” my alter ego responded.
It’s summer! Time for vacation! And sassy jewelry!
When it comes to Mid-century modernism, I was an early convert. Last night, I was treated to some major design porn at the Contemporary Jewish Museum (“Jewseum” if you use their Twitter handle) here in San Francisco. It was my first time there, and I’m not sure why I waited this long.
Pineapples are the new cherries.
Copper is the new brass.
The thing I love about San Francisco is that there’s never a dull moment here. Sure, it’s a quiet city compared to many of the big guns, but what makes me fall in love with the city over and over again is the endless array of insanely gorgeous yet non-intimidating stores you can find in any neighborhood. This one happens to be in mine.
So, I’ve been into this weaving thang lately. Because of it, I’ve hoarded yarn like a New Zealand ewe in the dead of winter. My hoarding tendencies have forced me to come up with storage options that are a) pretty to look at and b) fun to make. And that’s what this DIY is all about.
