Out with the old, in the with older

Did I just die and go to some amazing place where old typewriters are re-loved into pristine condition and displayed under a warm caramel light?

<br />I think I did.

Whoa.

Martin Howard is the owner of this amazing jealousy inducing collection of typewriters from as early as 1882. And these aren’t the kind that have rust and dust all over. Oh no, these are museum quality. Didn’t know there were typewriters that looked like this, did ya?

<br />Me neither. He even has other cool old stuff like this fine seal.

<br />I say. They just don’t make stuff like they used to.

Martin, I hope you don’t mind my posting about your site, but had you not emailed me I would have been completely oblivious to all this glory. How excited am I that you might help me find my perfect typewriter?? So excited.

Another year another tart

I just turned another year closer to 30. I was never into celebrating getting older. But you know what, the older I get the happier I am and the more sure I am of myself. And you know what else? It’s good to be an adult because I can do things like eat Pop Tarts for breakfast. I remember walking by the wall of Pop Tarts in the grocery store, staring longingly at the sprinkled frosting on the box. My mother would never allow it. But this morning I had myself a tasty nutritionally vacant frosted strawberry tart. No, I had 2. Ah, it’s good to be an adult. Will I allow my children to eat Pop Tarts for breakfast? Probably not. I would not want to deny them this self actualization.

Happy weekend everyone. It’s freezing here! But no trudging through snow. Sorry Midwest.

Munch and his Ralph Lauren scarf. This would be their perfect winter campaign, no? I know I’m biased, but come on. Just look at him. The most beautiful face in the universe.

I Love Lamp

I do, I do love lamp! Especially ones that are made out of plumbing. Did I ever tell you guys about my never realized project to build a table out of galvanized plumping pipes? No? Well the sketches are tucked away for a rainy day. I’ve already begun plotting out my next project involving blank canvases but I need a chunk of very large empty wall space. A rare commodity in NY.  Some rearranging will be required.

But a lamp! A much smaller venture. And what? I can just buy one for about the same price it would cost me to buy the pieces at Home Depot thus saving me time, money and the risk of it looking like something I found in the dumpster? Good thinking.

Coooooool right? And just look how grungy adorable these 7 are. You can also purchase these Kozo lamps on their Etsy site. Designed by Demo Design Clinic.
