christmas decor












we helped our friends decorate for a birthday party/christmas party last week...
they asked for non-traditional decor that reflected their style,
the result was a study in editing and placement.
The wreath at the front door was made from flexible conduit,
the gnome gardens were used on the consoles both in the family room
and the living room for color and texture and to add a sense of greenery,
the christmas tree was fabricated from the
humblest of materials 2x4's, pvc pipe and an antique spoke car wheel
for the base we topped it with a red light bulb.
We framed a window in the living room with greenery and placed
several chritmas trees outside and added the vintage choir
boys and candles to finish the vignette
[ a nod to their catholic school upbringing ]
p.s. the letters came from martin mattox way back in the summer
and looked so amazing by the front door we had to get a picture!
thank you to our friends for letting us
express our creativity and give them something truly
magical for the holidays!

Homecoming!


our son's first homecoming dance was last night he was invited to the st. francis dance, dinner and late night dessert. it has been at least 100 years since linda or myself had or needed a corsage so when we realized we would be in need we called our friend kimberly from la martine floral downtown @ 904 12th street to help us out, she created a unique piece with orchids and succulents that tied on the wrist with a beautiful silk ribbon, very elegant!
thanks kimberly it was a huge hit!

MOVEMBER is here!



i started last year for movember and have kept the stache
all year long. send us photos of your stache so we can post them
also please pass this post along to spread the word about prostate cancer
awareness and this amazing foundation!

Get Involved
The 'Mo', slang for moustache, and November come together each year for Movember.

Each Movember we challenge men to change their appearance and the face of men's health by growing a moustache. The moustache is our ribbon, the means by which we raise awareness and funds for cancers that affect men. Much like the commitment to run or walk for charity, our commitment is to grow a moustache for 30 days. Funds raised benefit the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG.

If you would like to join the global movement that is changing the face of men's health, sign up for Movember.

audubon inspiration, for the birds!











inspired by a meeting with some of our favorite clients yesterday
who happened to have a complete folio of vintage audubon
prints they inherited, made us realize just how much we loved birds!
photos to follow of the dining room wall collage of audubon prints
when it is complete.
