The only thing sweeter than these limited edition gilded frames for Karen Walkers 10 year birthday celebration is their sparkly ad campaign! In light of my birthday this weekend, these images make me extra happy! Party on!
Mike returned from his business trip to Seattle with a lovely souvenir for me! A raging cold! While being under the weather has allowed me to feel justified in my decision to sprinkle I Dream of Jeannie episodes in between work, this morning I simply luxuriated in my bed. Here is a photo from that time:
What’s on my sick person’s tray you might ask? These magical liquids! Not feeling up to the task of hoofing it to the store, I threw together this simple soup that totally calmed my sore throat, and washed it down with a soothing oolong. This soup is so easy you can make it even when your feverish brains are turning to mush!
4 C. Boiling Water
2 Chicken Bullion Cubes
1 1/2 Tbs. Soy Sauce
1 tsp. White Pepper
2 Oz. Firm Tofu, Cubed
Dissolve bullion cubes in boiling water. Turn down to a simmer. Add soy sauce & white pepper, stir. Add tofu and let simmer for a few minutes. Serve and sprinkle with scallions. Slurp!
Since I can remember, I’ve had an affinity for paper goods. Not just notebooks and stationary, more like good-ies, made from paper a la Claes Oldenburg. (Stop what you are doing and acquaint or reacquaint yourself with his work right now.) So when I saw that this husband and wife design duo’s portfolio was filled with paper and fabric fancies, my heart skipped a beat! (In part because my dream is to be one half of a husband wife duo, which from the look of disgust on Mikey’s face when I suggest this will never happen, even though, yes, I am his muse.) Feast your eyes! But probably not your mouth…
…and a Red Hot-filled shoe just for kicks!
These projects by interior designer David Jimenez may have been published in 2009, but their punchy flair and midcentury classicism keep me coming back for more! Pass the lemonade!
These come from the Titan of Titles; Saul Bass. Cards flap, pop and flash across the screen in a color palate of tan, red, orange, yellow, pink, black and white. Prettier than a Mondrian painting!
…And of course, cocktails!
