I was in Albuquerque last week.  I arrived just at the tail end of a heat wave and was lucky to enjoy several days with rain while I was there.  New Mexico is just incredibly beautiful, and seeing all my friends, family and dogs made it really hard to leave.

Recent Acquisitions

Some things that I've happily acquired in the last few weeks.
Four World of Interiors magazines from 2009.  The top issue is one that I had for a particular spread that I love on Henry Wilson's London home, with elaborately hand painted walls inspired by his life in India.  My mom donated it to the free magazine bin at our local library when I was away from home.  I'm sure she meant well and was just trying to clean up my house, but seriously, it was one of those moments when you wonder if your parents know you at all.  This new copy came as a lot of four from eBay, so I'm looking forward to reading those that are new to me.

Tom Dixon Copper Hex bowls.  On serious sale at Design Within Reach right now.  Gorgeous, but impossible to photograph thanks to their faceted shiny sides.  Trust me, they look much better in person.
