After spending most of the weekend driving up and down half the state of California, trekking through the Grapevine to wine country and up and down the curvy coast, I couldn’t help but think of the quote above from artist Anri Sala that I read in this article in Frieze Magazine a while back.

Man, I can’t believe we haven’t done a post on the Huntington Library in all of the history of ACO! Huntington Library is a lovely oasis nestled in Pasadena. I have many a sweet memories of sneaking in to the park grounds with friends, wandering from garden to garden, napping, reading, seeing and enjoying. It’s a stunningly beautiful location with […]

Among the exhibitors were DUM DUM zine (more on that to come), our friends from Synchroncity, as well as our dear Andrew Cox. The […]

You might hate me after reading this post and if you do I will drown my sorrows at one of the best places in the world, The Amangiri.  I was truly a lucky lady when one of my birthday presents was a stay at the Amangiri Hotel in Canyon Point, Utah. (a million kisses to […]

I thought these words from Gaston Bachelard’s The Poetics of Space: The Classic Look at How We Experience Intimate Places were fitting for this post considering the fact that I’ve been sick at home for the last couple of days and haven’t ventured far from our couch. I’ve been watching Downton Abbey (which isn’t a show about […]
