Alexander Calder Little Face mobile at LACMA

Alexander Calder Laocoon mobile and stabiles at LACMA

calder mobiles = instant joy.

with their slow and subtle movement, abstract shapes, and delicate balancing act, it is easy to feel like a little kid marveling at a gigantic, magical toy. hopefully, calder would be happy with that comparision considering that he once built a mini circus out of cardboard, pipe cleaners, and bottle caps.

oh, and frank gehry designed the exhibition space. inspired by a calder show he experienced at the guggenheim museum, gehry designed guggenheim-esque wall curvature. yes, he went there. behold the curves...

name your color contest

Whorange phone vote

hello, darlings!

a few years ago, steve found this groovy old payphone at a garage sale and had it painted orange for my birthday! now, the whorange phone sits lovingly in my office, longing for the days when payphones were the "it girls" of on-the-go communication.

i wanted to give our whorange phone a little lovin', so i entered it in modernica's "name your color" contest. you can read all about the contest here.

our whorange phone just needs some sweet "like"-ing from you! simply CLICK ON OVER to facebook and "like" and/or "share" the photo. that's it!

thank you so much! and, if i haven't told you lately, your hair looks fabulous today!
