Okay, I was missing my Thomas O'brien Half Circle Rug which the sun and the dog wore out in a New York minute! However, to my surprise, the new Chrysanthemum Rug looks better than I thought that it would.
My dear Auntie Doreen gave me about 20 vintage tea towels when she and her beloved husband John moved to Glenwood Gardens, a retirement community in Bakersfield. They are both gone now and I want to feature my favorite of Doreen's towels!
Last April I read an article in the LA Times about the German experimental film maker Heinz Emigholz and his film about the Schindler houses. My husband and I barely made it to the Billy Wilder Theatre at the Hammer to see the last screenings of two of the four Emigholz films, Loos (Adolf) Ornamental and Schindler Hauser. Being unfamiliar with his framing style, the beginning of each film seemed (and seems) a bit choppy. After a few houses however, weweretransported to another time and place. At a Chinese New Year party our friend Justin told us that he had rented Goff en der Wuste(Goff in the Desert) from Netflix...If you like Modern architecture, you really must see it! The first time you watch it, please, no interruptions, and make sure you turn off the director's commentary. The second time, listen to the commentary!
Working on Superbowl Sunday? It has only been four hours since the last Mystery House Post! I guess deadlines have to be met. Maybe they want to miss the seven raindrops forecast for next Thursday! Let's bet on the color!
I found these Mexican Sacred Hearts at Buena Vista Furniture. A great Valentine gift each under $20. They also have tin punched lanterns that have that real mystical vibe and some beautiful solid wood trunks, which would look fabulous at the bottom of any bed.
