On My Walls

A couple of weeks ago, on this blog, I wondered what images to decorate my walls with.
Finally, I went with this poster (you can buy it here), a retro Californian photograph by Don James with great typography.

I also pinned up the first page of the Los Angeles Times November 5 edition, the Election Issue, using it as a happy poster, as well as pictures of friends and relatives. Those are my beautiful mum and sister in black and white... Regular readers of this blog may also recognize adorable baby Arthur, and fans of the talented Fifi Flowers will spot at once her whimsical design on a card she sent me (just because she is so sweet...)



Make sure to visit this weekend, for a very special trip to the beach...

Awesome little marinade of images...love the poster. The typography is what makes it paired with the docu-style photo used for the image. How cool!

JILL - thanks for your good wishes; CA is decidedly very different from MA!

RAINING SHEEP - yes, I love the contrast between the austere, sharp typography and the softness of the image.

SOLANGE - I know it's freezing out there. My sister in Amsterdam regularly updates me on the local temperatures...

JOANNA - I hope to meet you next week in Santa Monica!

NANCY - why don't you come and visit me some time?

HILA - I knew you'd like it!

FIFI - thanks again for treating me; your cards are so pretty I can't bring myself to use them. Mum told me she had received your dahlias, which made her so very happy!
