Second dozen

Second dozen by beatrizmacias
The 52 Weeks project is alive and well. I am almost halfway done.

I think I will make a 2012 calendar for my store, some of these are just too beautiful not to keep them at hand.

Friday favorites

Guerrilla knitting and the feeling of looking up or down to find a surprise.
My new Ipad and the wonderful book I am reading: State of Wonder by Ann Patchett. 
SUMMER, I am a big fan.
Triathlons and training buddies. I am hooked now, no going back.
Cherry pie. I am becoming an expert at making it and eating it too. Great recipe, just use half the sugar.
Ice coffee... need I say more?

While organizing my little collection from the Pacific Ocean, I was reminded of the amazing work of Anja Mulder. Do yourself a favor and visit her photo stream.

Summer is keeping me busy

We are rediscovering California, traveling, camping, walking on the beach, wearing flip flops, leaving a trail of sand wherever we go. Life is good, but all projects have taken a backseat at the moment. I have a bit of news, but I can't tell you just yet. Don't get any crazy ideas though, it is related to the blog and I will leave it at that.

A little gift from the Pacific Ocean to your computer. Enjoy.

It is up!

I am a happy, happy woman! My David Trubridge Coral lamp is up! If you are a design aficionado like I am, you might be familiar with this beauty. I first got a glance of it on Camila's blog and later I spotted it at Door Sixteen.

I bought it directly from a New Zealand vendor, and I got it in the mail less than a week later. The lamp comes unassembled, which is convenient for shipping purposes. But to put it together is a challenge that is easy for some and more than difficult for others. I am not declaring in which camp I am standing, suffice to say that the lamp is assembled and hanging!

This image is more of a tribute to the lamp and its shadow play on the wall. I still need to take some images of the lamp in context... and I will... promise. I just need to finish hanging the artwork in the hall and building the bar area right underneath the lamp! TO DO lists... don't you love them?
