New Pleated Bags!

The shop is being stocked with new pleated bags! Getting ready for the Arts on Foot happening on Sept. 10-12 on 7th. and F Streets in DC! I'm excited about another venture in DC. So its time to stock pile and fill up! Finding more colors of canvas has been so exciting! New Burgundy is a delightful fall color with a hint of purple. All machine washable with interior pockets (a larger pocket with Velcro closure) and a smaller pocket convenient for keys and cell phone. Look for more narrative pillows that are on my agenda next!

Michael Clark: Ballet Punk Rock Style

Loving this trip to the 80's punk rock ballet movement. I think I saw this on Alive from Off Center ... an actual show dedicated to Performance Art of the 80's. I'm loving this trip back to The Fall!

New York New York

Just spent the weekend in New York with my buddy Laura and what fun we had! Saw so much amazing art: Oldenburg, Bacon, Ensor, Roxy Paine and Dan name the solo shows. Contemporary drawing and a great correlation show of music and art of the punk rock movement....Our best find was finding out that the Met has extended hours till 9 on Friday and Saturday nights and that they serve cocktails on the roof ! These are some pics form the Roxy Paine show on the roof. Absolutely breathe taking as the sun sets over Manhattan!

Favorite FInd of the Day

I've been quite busy these last days writing curriculum and making tons of items for a future show in to come soon...and of course this blog tends to suffer from my busi-ness and short attention span. But I have been absolutely loving grain edit and his finds and have to share this one which comes from we made this Blog on the Olivetto Lettera 22 Manual. What a beautiful work of art.

There was an old Lady....

When I was a kid, one of my favorite events was going to the Catonsville Library on Frederick Road. Not just because the early 60's decor and architecture that was going to be a cherished aesthetic style close to my heart, but because of some of my most favorite books that I discovered there. I was a horrible creature of habit...still am in many ways..( I tend to order the same foods from the same restaurants) .. i would check out the same books when I found them on the shelves. I Know an Old Lady....was one of my favorites. Mainly for the illustrations by Abner Graboff. The Ward-O-Matic blog posted a great interview of the illustrator that you can check out here
