THE HOLLYWOOD PICKER


I found a metal coral chandelier today, and

it is staying in the car, it is not getting anywhere near this house,

because you know, it would never leave. I would have to

paint it blue or maybe charcoal gray and hang

it in the living room. And it would look----- Oh God!,

divine.

JUST A LITTLE CHANGE


To whom it may concern,
 Yes, there as been little changes to the header photo.
 This is strictly for my amusement, of course.
 So don't be alarmed, just enjoy.
 If you like, please say so.
 Flattery will get you everywhere.

THE HOLLYWOOD PICKER














 
There is mystery in the hand-made. Touched, some clumsy,some refined, all told, work is ever present.  A vision, a task, a dream. Little things made by common people. Are my favorite things to find.

JUNGLE FEVER

 
 What do you get when you have one warm day, the first in two months, one unfinished garden project, one vintage Tiki head, one cedar post, two cups of coffee, one telephone turned off, several succulents, three vintage wire baskets, three bags Spanish moss, and one hell of an aspiration?

MY NEW HOUSE


What do you think? I think, I was going to sell it, but I think not. I think, I'm going to keep it and nail it to a post and let all the chickadees and sparrows move in. I think.

I NEED YOUR HELP

A long, long time ago, I saw a photo spread of this house in A.D. or World Of Interiors, I don't know which.  Try to guess whose house this is or was. Cork tile, leather couch, concrete counter tops, aluminum walls, books, photos,----- this person was way before their time, in contemporary style and design. Try to guess. Look closely, there is a clue. If you happen to know where and which magazine I saw this house, please let me know. I need your help!
