Shopping From Photographs: Home Furnishings

August 25th, 2007

In a month, Sara and I will be moving into our new home in the long forgotten (ficional?), mid-century development of Ellendale. We do not have much spare cash for furnishing so aside from shopping for furnishings from film noir pix, I’m scouring old photographs for interior design ideas. Pictured is a favorite shot of Sara in a Manhattan apartment.

Shopping From Photographs: Home Furnishings

August 25th, 2007

In a month or so, Sara and I will be moving into our new home in the long forgotten (fictional?), mid-century development of Ellendale. Since we do not have much spare cash for home furnishing we’ll be shopping primarily from Hollywood Noir and old photographs. Pictured is a favorite shot of Sara in a Manhattan apartment we’d both love to occupy. I’ll take the leather club chair and school turntable (artwork can stay on the walls).

Shopping From Brevets: Erin’s new Coho frame

August 1st, 2007

the coho – it’s ready!
Originally uploaded by diplomatica

From dawn to door, friend Erin took delivery of a new Coho frame in less time than my wait for a custom, high flange Phil wood hub (with q/r axle) for my forthcoming Riv (3 years, 1 month and 10 days in the waiting)(albeit, ordered by way of Australia–the hub, that is). Coho was built by fellow randonneur, Charles Lathe, who also built up a black randonneuse frame for friend Tom. Chuck’s red randonneuse was the envy of the brevet circuit this Spring (well…the envy of me).

Now, I just need how to figure out how I can make a living as an unpaid spokesman/spokesmodel for other people’s product lines.
