Brad Pitt, Furniture Design, and Housekeeping

Brad Pitt is designing furniture now. I like this table, though I'm not fond of glass tables in general. Unless I had someone on staff to wipe and dust it hourly. Sadly, I don't think the design would work so well in wood ... or with the pile of newspapers, books, bags, cups, and dishes that usually adorn our dining table. More at NYT Home and Garden.

Lazy Jane's, Lazy Day ...

Went to lunch with a friend today at one of my favorite spots, Lazy Jane's. Afterwards we took a stroll down the street and popped in at Hatch Art House, where among lots of other cool things we were amused by the paper mache work of Steve Wirtz. They were mostly dogs, with a few cows thrown in, very ... personable. Usually with a sassy sentence or words collaged on their sides. It seems that one can sign up for classes to make your own sassy dogs ... that might be quite fun.
