Hitting the Links (9/1/09)


Petite Floret Vase by Jill Weiner from the Earth Angels website

A round-up of just a few things  I’ve been browsing today . . .

A blast from the past: Jennifer Graney was my first-ever poetry editor. Back in sophomore year English class–with Mr. Madri–I’d scribble poems as fast as I could then pass them a few seats back and a row over for Jen to give them the once-over. She even helped me tighten up the (handwritten) screenplay–Danny and Christina Forever–I crafted for my one, my only Matt Dillon. (Er Matt, I’m still waiting to hear from you . . . . ) So grown-up Jen has changed her last name to O’Connor and her hair’s a lot shorter than it used to be, but she’s still a great editor! These days, however, she’s turned her editorial eye to curating a fabulous selection of folk art inspired toys, jewelry, collectibes, and more at her gallery store Earth Angels.

How soon can I move in? I saw this home office yesterday, and of course now I want to totally redo the corner of my bedroom that is my home office. I don’t plan to do any painting, but I think I will figure out how to invest in some low white shelving for my design books and poetry files and the like.

Back-to-school! A history of design lesson thanks to Design*Sponge. Everything you always wanted to know about Wedgewood . . . except, perhaps, how to afford a piece. Sigh . . . . Oh, if anyone tackles the DIY project, send me a pic, and I’ll post it. Promise! (thehomebeete[at]gmail.com)

  1. Yeah, Matt never called me either. Thanks for the shout out my dear one and grateful to be back in touch. xxxoo Jen

  2. Hi Paulette, I wanted to stop by and thank you for commenting on my “before & after” home make-over on Design*Sponge. There’s many photos they didn’t include, along with more info about our remodel. You can visit my blog to learn more at The Old Painted Cottage.
