Birds vs. People

Spotted outside a local supermarket

Dear Birds,
    We apologize for any inconvenience we may have caused you by building this big annoying store and this enormous noisy parking lot. Please forgive us. We will try to do better.

The Lodge at Torrey Pines

I am fairly obsessed with the Arts and Crafts Movement. I find the style to be so warm and logical. And I love the design philosophy of beautiful, practical, well-made things which communicate an understanding and appreciation of Nature. 
Situated on the cliffs above the Pacific Ocean in La Jolla, California, The Lodge at Torrey Pines is, in my opinion, one of the best modern interpretations of the California Craftsman style. Plus, the bar serves a mean gin & tonic.

Three Things

Life has its ups and downs. That is certain. Sigh... One can easily lose perspective.
 I have found a simple little method for keeping my spirits aloft. Every day I seek out Three Things that make me feel ESPECIALLY content ~ Three Things that give me a little kick in the pants to remind me that life is good ~ my little bits of "snow in the air" if you will.
These Three Things can be as simple as a curtain fluttering in the breeze...or a perfectly ripe banana...or an off-color joke that makes you laugh so hard that your ribs hurt. Anything.

So these are my latest Three Things:

Bill Cunningham via The Sartorialist
While reading the Sunday Style section of the New York Times, I was reminded of how much I ADORE Bill Cunningham. Did you see this film? It made me cry.

I spotted these on my way to the library. I think tangerine is the color of the year.

And I found this cool video of The Syndicate of Sound while attempting to load " Little Girl" onto my ipod. Suits by the sea in 1966. Awesome.

What are your THREE THINGS??????

Purple Flowers

Spring is definitely blooming around here. Maybe it's my imagination but it seems like the first flowers to poke their noses out are the Purple Ones.
