In Honor of Paul Evans

Sometimes it's nice to be old enough to be able to say, "I remember back in the day when Paul Evans worked with my husband". My husband worked for a very contemporary furniture manufacturer as a catalog designer and photographer. Paul was one of the main designers and frequented the company often. It was a sad day for the company when Paul passed away. I remember that day very well. His designs will always be remembered for their sculptural appearance. His work has gained in popularity over the years and so has the price point. So if you were lucky enough to purchase a piece of Paul Evans furniture be happy.

Nature Is Design

It's that time of year when we say goodbye to our summer cabin and hunker down in city limits for the winter. I will so miss the serenity of the woods and our tiny urban chic woodland retreat. No more painting until next summer and no more garage sales until March 2011. Yes there will be posts and trips to antique malls but garage sale season is finally over.

Our cabin is completely furnished in Danish Modern via garage sales. It seems to match the many windows filled with the woods and its wildlife.

Let the snow begin!
