"Styling down to the letter"

Great affordable art from House Industries all hand-printed in the USA.  Ranging in price from $100 (plywood ready to hang prints) to $45 (printed on acid-free paper).

P.E. Guerin

My kind of candy store.  Handcrafted hardware and plumbing fixtures. "History everywhere you look."



Loving these matchstick sculptures by Pei-San Ng, especially after the slight singeing.

Austin City Limits

Gorgeous weather, massive crowds, Knitta Please, rock & recycle, good times, great friends, scooter rides, and at last lush grass in Zilker Park, here are a few photos from Austin City Limits [which was, ehem, three weekends ago.]

As many of you may know I am a few weeks behind on posts here.  I know, I know, I need to pick up the pace a bit.

Friendship, Pass it on!

I had to snap a picture of this billboard in Austin... It's a lovely sentiment to start the weekend with, right?!  Have a great one, friends and neighbors!

Inkwell and Argent

I am obsessed with these plates from Anthro.  In person you can really admire the richness of the silverleaf on the salad plate and the platter.

How do you like them apples?

Does anything say 'hello fall' like a cider tour?  B.F. Clyde's Cider Mill is the oldest steam powered cider mill in the US.  What a sight to see with the steam rising, belts spinning, cheesecloth flipping, pallet rotating, sweet nectar dripping, and compost hauling.  It was nice to step back to simpler times and experience how this family has been making cider for six generations.

Jobs that Matter

Are you still here?  Thank you so much for sticking around during my hiatus!  It was a very productive week and hopefully later I can showcase what I have been working on here on Nola West.
Ok, where were we?  Oh yes, Connecticut.  Are you familiar with the above Coast Guard marketing slogan?  It was aired several times during our courting period, and after Will's reunion our belief in this was reaffirmed.  All of his classmates whether still in the service or out are truly getting what they want out of life.  Consider us inspired!
