Let me stand next to your Fire!

A nice modern take on the fire pit features glass and steel.
Great for your mid century backyard or atrium.

Easter - the Eco Way

Easter is right around the corner and I just stumbled upon this Eco friendly coloring kit made with vegetable dyes such as paprika, blueberries, and sweet potato. They also have paints made from safe ingredients so let your designed dozen be inspired by your favorite modern patterns.  No more worries about all the dye that hard boiled egg soaked up while getting to that perfect shade.

Eco-Kidsusa carries natural art products and they list their mission as putting environmentally safe products into the imaginative hands of kids.  Big kids can have fun, too!

The General Store

Wandering around San Francisco recently, we stumbled upon The General Store on Judah while looking for a good cup of joe. 
A great independent store with a well picked selection of vintage and new items ranging from clothes & jewelry to tools.  Lots of unique items from local craftsman too. Mid century with a good earthy feel, so California living.
Hubby and I were happy to browse together!  
Turns out Mason, one of the owners, works on Eichler remodels and renovations in the Bay area ......
