Countdown to Calendars

       Make it yourself..........My love for actual, usable calendars has not diverged. This one found on Skona Hem is fabulous.  Make it yourself!

   KEEP IT.......

Ok, so this last calendar is not available anymore. If you live in Milwaukee, you may recognize it as WMSE offered these in 2010. Photographs taken my favorite person, Stanley Ryan Jones, document the punk/new wave club scene in Milwaukee in late 70s and early 80s. This calendar still hangs on my wall in my office permanently displaying December 2010. I refuse to turn the page or take it down.

Road Trip in Finland - blog

Introducing my new favorite read - Road Trip in Finland. RTIF is a Finnish blog by two ladies: Mirja and Rikka. Not only do we get great snapshots of fabulous finds, but once monthly they photograph a Finnish home/family for the blog. I think what is unique about RTIF is that it actually captures who Mirja and Rikka are, their point of view and their love of Finland.


Charlotte Perriand

Dusty Deco

The photo above is actually on my inspiration wall at home as well.

Dusty Deco - How can you resist these images? I have seen quite a bit of press about Dusty Deco (Stockholm) recently and finally visited their website. Similar to Modern 50, Dusty Deco would be a familiar haunt if I lived in Sweden.....selling early 20th century furniture and finds. Images here are from their inspiration pace and will not disappoint.
