Mega-congrats to my friend Dean over at My Little Apartment (also of South Social & Home) for getting her beautiful apartment posted on Apartment Therapy! If there were ever a Craigslist queen, it would be Dean. Check out the post here!

Sorry for the lack of posts recently, but I started a new job (hooray!) at the end of September and have had very little spare time or energy. I will still be posting, but the posts will be a little spread out. Please keep me in your RSS reader!
So this past weekend my lovely mother came to visit from Northern California. We visited LACMA because I wanted to show her LACMA first of all, but also wanted to see their contribution to Pacific Standard Time. My favorites were California Design, 1930-1965: Living in a Modern Way and the installation of Five Card Stud by Ed Kleinholtz which was quite moving and immersive. This is a post about the former, but the latter is darkly fantastic and definitely worth visiting.
I took a janky phone photo of the Eames living room, as recreated by LACMA to compare to the real thing. I can tell you that even though it wasn’t identical, it filled me with joy and made me want to hop into the installation and have a cup of coffee a friend (or with the Eames’s).
Not quite the same, but you should check it out here for more detail.

I bought this tiny vase (only a few inches tall) at a shop near me, and just love it. Ceramicist Michelle Valigura’s work reminds me of Alexander Girard and a little of Mary Blair.

Perhaps you’ve already heard about Pacific Standard Time, especially if you’re a Southern California resident. If not, check out their site and start planning what events and exhibitions you want to go to!
“Pacific Standard Time is an unprecedented collaboration of cultural institutions across Southern California coming together to celebrate the birth of the L.A. art scene. Beginning October 2011, over 60 cultural institutions will make their contributions to this region-wide initiative encompassing every major L.A. art movement from 1945 to 1980.”
I’m super excited about these upcoming shows and events in and around LA. I suppose I should also mention that my jewelry line is going to be featured in the Orange County Museum of Art’s shop in conjunction with their Two Schools of Cool exhibit and State of Mind: New California Art Circa 1970, which is their contribution to Pacific Standard Time. I’m currently working on a batch of one-of-a-kind pieces for them, mainly with vintage materials.

Another space to dream about. More images at iiiinspired. All of my dream spaces (for example) are primarily filled with plants and light.

So many cool things in the Nothing is New Workshop! Love this woven piece by Alex Segreti (Weird Friends) and Kelly Rakowski (Nothing is New). I also really love this idea for a way to cover up a flowerpot that may be less than pretty…
