Night Light

Back to Anne's gallery for a moment. Here we are at night, picking up dinner a few doors down at Vanida Thai. I can't get over her beautiful round light. It's LED and will never have to be turned off. Supposedly it will burn for twenty years. Can you believe it? Is it not the most wondrous thing? That's all. Good night.

More Treasures

For someone who hates carrying things, I'm amassing a considerable collection of tote bags. I couldn't resist this one from 3 Fish Studios, another stop on the SF Open Studios tour.

What I'll do is hang the newest bag on the wall for a few weeks and stare at it. After a month or so, I'll start using it.

I hate cooking, too! But that didn't stop me from snapping up this spoon rest the moment I saw it. It's also from 3 Fish Studios. Both treasures were made by Annie Galvin.

In the Street

How's this for some killer hand lettering?

Cold-blooded Me

You all know that one of my goals has always been to be a product photographer, and this little heater is the perfect subject. I mail-ordered it one cold morning last week while procrastinating.

It's tiny! 6 x 4 inches. It keeps me warm and does not roast Tom in the process. Twenty-four bucks. It comes in great colors: red, green, white, and black. p.s. This is not an advertisement.

Golden Gate Bridge by Ian Adams / Creativity Explored

When we left the house this evening, the sky was blue and the sun was low but shining bright. By the time we got to the beach––five minutes later––look what happened! The fog had rolled in and it was windy and cold. Since the bridge was invisible, I thought I'd post the painting above for you. Isn't it wonderful? It's from my favorite gallery, Creativity Explored.

A fun activity: When you’re speaking with the 7th customer “satisfaction" rep and smoke is coming out of your ears, imagine what the person on the other end looks like and draw him.
