new lonny

Issue #3 is here. And this time I am not so behind.

brule's rules

You know that you're a parent when most of your TV viewing happens on the computer. I think I am way behind on seeing any or all of these. I love John C. Reilly.

This rabbit print by Dee Beale is exquisite.

modern doll quilts

How incredible are these doll quilts by Wendy of Wire and Twine?! For the first time ever I think I may be able to quilt. Fifteen months after the fact I am still in disbelief that we have a daughter who may want to play with something other than trucks.

ode to sylvia

Our color teacher at The Circus was Sylvia. Most people who have attended an advertising school in Atlanta have had the pleasure of Sylvia's classes. She is tough. And really good. You learn color theory in a short six months and are up late many many nights working on her never ending projects.

Her final project had something to do with tribe symbols and patterns, contrasting colors, a "pop" color and something else. I found my piece of work when we moved to this house. It is a rug for a kid's room and since I now have kiddos, it sits on D's floor. The constellations are copied from H. A. Rey's The Stars: A New Way To See Them (an awesome book!). Who would have thought that this thing would actually come of use!

more from david pearson

We featured David Pearson's site recently. He is mucho talented. Looks like he just did a bunch of Cormac McCarthy covers that are being reissued in Britain. The type is wonderful and so appropriate.

We own a "twig table" that I inherited from my godmother. I LOVE it. T has offered to burn it a few times. There is even a bird's nest hidden inside.

This blog by Greg Hatton is also very "twiggy". So many neat things. I want him to blog more!

so simple

This is the kind of thing from The Small Object that is wonderful in it's simplicity. We are trying to get D to draw more and this might just do it ...

art in accidents

I love the idea that these cut-up billboards become artful collages.
