Dream Machine

I received a package yesterday from a dear friend who lives in New York, and as a treat he included the Design Within Reach Annual Book 2008.

If money were no object, I'd snap up the DWR Airstream Trailer ($49,066, but included in this gob smacking price tag are, among other delights, two Tripolina chairs and the Nelson Ball clock)! I'd hook it to the back of my new (in my dreams new) red Fiat 500...

If you have any information to share on the Dick Bruna Paperback series, I'd love to hear from you.

A nod to Miffy, my signed copy of "Miffy at the Gallery" is a favorite in my children's illustrated book collection. Maybe more on this topic soon...


Dots, dots and more dots... My lovely husband has been making these amazing dot paintings for the past seven years. This new direction coincided with us becoming a couple.

Here are a few snaps, which are details of larger paintings that I took with my phone. He's a very clever boy and I'm a very lucky girl!
