We hung some new artwork around the apartment the other day. This piece by Caroline Wright is on the wall above our couch now, and I couldn’t love it more. (These photos hardly do it justice.)

A few finds from the Alameda Antiques Fair last weekend: an industrial stool that is just perfect for my new elephant foot palm plant; two cameras: an Ansco Readyflash (and a bonus surprise– an exposed roll of film in it!) and a Brownie Twin 20; and some old photos to add to my collection.
Does anyone have any experience getting obsolete film developed? The roll I found in the Ansco Readyflash is Kodacolor-X and processed with C-22 which our local shop doesn’t do anymore, so I’ve been looking for somewhere to send it off. The most promising I’ve found so far is Film Rescue International, but the turnaround is going to be at least 6 weeks… Any ideas/recommendations/suggestions would be very much appreciated!
Nolan and I met some friends at Mission Cheese yesterday afternoon. We told cheesemonger Steve a few of our likes and dislikes and he put together a spectacular cheese plate for us. That guy knows his cheese! Crowd favorites were the Barinaga Ranch Baserri and the Rogue River Blue– and half of us claimed to not even like blue cheese. The decor is a great mix of rustic and industrial and the vibe is definitely laid back cool. Plus they serve their tap beers in mason jars. (Love!) Not a bad way to spend a few hours on a drizzly afternoon.
