Cyndi’s home, a ranch-style house built in 1958, is a stunning ode to all things found, reclaimed, and vintage. It’s a home you can stare at for hours: peering into glass-fronted cases, admiring collections of ceramics, and wondering at the story behind each object. It’s about as far away from childproofed as you can get. Nevertheless, it’s home to two girls both under the age of eight.
I made a stop at a gas station the other day and spotted this truck with gas cans on it. I was really in awe that they were so colorful and pretty. They looked like carnival cotton candy. I think this might become a drawing soon. Stay tuned . . .
I got such a great gift this year for Mothers Day – it has literally caused me to loose sleep two nights in a row. It is a vintage, beautiful industrial typewriter. Vintage 1950s Royal Portable Manual Typewriter. As an object alone it is magnificent to look at but I plan on using it for journaling and art making in general. It is so pretty I had to pull a Raising Arizona Holly Hunter “I love it so much Hy” moment!! I feel like it was stolen from the set of Mad Men. I also feel like dancing a little “it’s mine all mine” jig! Ahhh . . . I just love it. I started to redo my office area because I was so inspired and wanted to rearrange everything to give my little Royal a focus.
My new nugget of happiness
Pared down desk area - laptop sits in front. Vintage tray holds my goods
Office supply cabinet re-organized and labeled. Oh joy!
Another look - ahhh . . . just take it in.
