Hello Friend-o

These are the new designs from Baba's 2nd. We're saying Hola or Hello to Spring. You can say the same to your friends. I've brought back the egg chair. I've been working on some new designs. Working like a crazy lady - looking at designs, reading up about mid - century furniture and scouring magazines and websites. Heck, I spent a few hours at our local library.

Lovely fixtures.

The next set of designs will be divided into a few categories - more sillas and mesas (or chairs and tables), ladies and men of the recession and bodas (or weddings). I've been quite inspired by a few of my favorite blogs.

The weddings designs have been in the works for quite some time. I seriously love the idea of creating something beautiful for couples who are vowing to spend their lives together. The blog something old, something new also helps by unearthing really good bridal options.

For the ladies and men of the recession series, I was inspired by all the recent shenanigans in the financial world. Today's Brian Lehrer show was quite a d-o-w-n-e-r. Thirty thousand people working on Wall Street have lost their jobs since 2006. Ugggh. On the bright side, one of my friends made it on the airways of the Brian Lehrer show and divulged a news tidbit that was lost in translation due to the Elliot Spitzer sex scandal. If you want to hear it, it's the March 14th call in - check WNYC (our NPR station).

Anyway, the blog The Sophisticate's Diary was a real find. even better is their Vintage Scans blog. Of course that was a link from Kathy at 16Sparrows.

So, lots of exciting blogs, new designs and gorgeous stuff. Oh did I mention that my best friend had her beautiful baby boy last week. She is so freaking fabulous and he is simply a doll! Welcome to our planet Kai!

Well, mi esposo and I saw a few good films. Gracias Netflix and Turner Classic Movies. First up was Night Nurse, a pre-Code Hollywood film from 1931 starring Barbara Stanwyck and Clark Gable (as a really nefarious asshole chauffeur). It's a bit racy (before the censors got a hold of Hollywood) and there's some really good slang.

Last night we finally saw No Country for Old Men. Why, it was fantastic! Violent? Yes. So, hello friend-o to you. It's so good to catch up with the times.

Well, signing off to spend a little time with my hubby and puppy. Nighty night.
