On our way to decent fish tacos, we spied with our little eyes, "the Love Bug" or a love bug.
Of course, I got all nostalgic and had to snap a photo!

Out and About: Gilbert and George Always Land on Their Feet

Gilbert and George are showing engaging new work at Ardnt & Partner Berlin. I love the kaleidoscope and Spirograph effects, and of course the Union Jacks!
Check out the AlterMODERN Manifesto at Hecho Poetico.
Thanks to the HK Zamani for the link!

Formica For My (Our) Kitchen

I was having a cuppa with my Mum and we were lamenting over how her Formica laminate still looks great after at least twenty years of service to a family who basically lives in the kitchen. My parents are remodeling and we are fantasizing about recycling and refitting parts of her kitchen to my hubbies studio kitchen (stay tuned).

My fascination with Formica has evolved from visits to the Chemosphere (98) and the Neutra VDL House II (08) in Silverlake. Apartment Therapy featured a cool retro kitchen that would be right for my galley! Visit the Formica site here! You will be amazed at what they have to offer!

Tea towels of the month: June

Where have I been? Jonathan Adler has a range of tea towels! Yeah! Tea towels I can use. Thanks to Laure for her post on them.

Brunch idea from Everyday Food on PBS

Canadian Bacon Strata is easy to make for brunch. The night before lightly toast English muffins and cut the in half. Put them in a buttered dish cut side down alternated with Canadian bacon (I use super thin honey ham). Sprinkle grated cheese over the top and pour an egg and milk mixture over that. Cover and refrigerate overnight, then bake in the morning. Yum, yum! I make a grapefruit and orange salad to go with it.
