Eames for Herman Miller Fiberglass Arm Chair Rocker-RAR

I’m so glad that I just discovered CoMod Classics based out of Columbia, Missouri. They buy and restore mid-century modern furniture with an emphasis on the iconic designs of Charles & Ray Eames. They also sell mid-century inspired handmade pieces (like the little side table and clock below.)

My mom has that exact avocado Cathrineholm bowl. Well, I sure wish it was mine!

Today we have a wee hedgehog entitled “Fall Hedgehog, flowers” by Katie Vernon (aka ChipmunkCheeks on Etsy).

In her shop you’ll find lots of lovely, whimsical creatures but I love this little hedgehog and the wonderful colors of his bouquet! The colorful little figure in his hill of whitespace would be so cute in a little girl’s room!

    I, to this day, do not understand Laura Marling’s voice. How does that whiskey-molasses voice come from a creature so thin, young, and British? Well, it’s beautiful and wonderful and haunting, and I guess I’ll have to just leave it at that!

    I discovered her through my local library’s astounding collection of CDs last winter. It was her 2010 release, I Speak Because I Can. Her newest release, A Creature I Don’t Know, came out this past September and is from what this video comes.

    This music video .. ahhhh … I know it’s not autumn and we’re not depressed yet, but this video is so touching. It puts me in a very creative mood. I love what someone from YouTube commented, “I listened to this on the bus, and literally forgot where I was heading and why.”
