Happy Halloween, world. My neighborhood is covered with shaving cream, not my favorite look. But the kiddie bumble bees and fairy princesses are innocently adorable.


I'm learning how to use this blogging software, Moveable Type. A year ago, I didn't know what a blog was. I like the word blog. It sounds like splotch. It's simple. Don't you think it's interesting that so many people have so much to say? I mean, don't you know a lot of females who complain about males never talking? Well, they sure talk on their blogs. So what's the secret? An audience? A potential audience? Targeted marketing? I'm not sure. But whatever it is, I think it's great that everyone is communicating. Sometimes it seems like information overload but you don't have to look at anything online you don't want to. So more power to us all.

The Elixir of Color

Objects that perform well and possess beautiful color, form and texture make doing things fun.

A chair should be more than simply functional. It should be friendly, fun and colorful. — Pierre Paulin

From kiddie airplane spoons to gorgeous grownup lighting, well-thought-out design improves our lives. To me, of all the aspects of design, color is the standout. Striking color changes your mood instantly. This blog is a poem to color as it winds its way through our world in its many incarnations. Did you also notice that color is free? No charge.
