Roundup!

Roundup!

Recently I’ve been kind of obsessed with Lindsey Adelman Studios and their fantastic lighting collection. If you don’t have 15 big ones to drop on one of their custom chandeliers, Lindsey Adelman Studio has posted detailed instructions for several fixtures on their website.

Rejuvenation Classic American Lighting & House Parts

Chicago Secrets: Agent Gallery

Chicago Secrets: Agent Gallery

What do you think of the painting on the left?  While I’m normally very shy, the artist made me feel very comfortable . . . pretty even. As a music accompaniment for this post, may I be so bold as to recommend Plush Gun?  Try “Just Impolite,” which I’ve intuitively added to the right sidebar […]
