Keep Your Job: Look Busy @ Work

I love CBS’ Sunday Morning show. The trumpet intro and the Alexander Girard-like sun image; what’s not to like? Last Sunday, this great piece with Bill Geist aired, and it is worth a watch.

David Stark's West Elm Cacti for a Cause

For real. I have found myself in the alternate universe of cardboard lifestyle, and this planet keeps expanding.

Today I saw (virtually) the handsome cardboard cacti concocted by David Stark that made an appearance at West Elm. It seems Stark assembled many items, from the cacti to tissue boxes and clocks, for the opening of the newest West Elm in Manhattan and an auction benefiting the Cooper-Hewitt Museum. All of the materials used to make the items were recycled West Elm packing materials.
