for mod*tot's birthday's we've always gone to fairyland in oakland, california. it's "america's oldest storybook theme park." so we went there for mod*tot's 3rd birthday a few weeks ago. she especially loves to ride on the jolly trolly train (okay, we grown ups love it too).

she looked so cute getting a drink from this lion faucet. kids have to put their head in the lion's mouth to get a drink. precious.

this is where i bank in sunnyvale. it is sooo cool. of course i picked it because of the sixties architecture. it has a huge geodesic dome skylight ceiling + circular stairway inside.
it's a bank of the west. they have some other architecturally cool branches around here too.

sneak a peak at fredflare's NEXT BIG THING contest winners!!!!
the items are available for sale next week!

celebrity winner :: amy sedaris pastry pouch ::
"our super gal pal made a "pastry pouch" exclusively for fred flare! it's a coin purse or your new fave sunglass case. or you can fill it with lentils, stick in the freezer + then take out to sooth black 'n blues. with embroidered note from amy. a portion of proceeds go to the house rabbit society."
i think it looks like a pop tart + it makes me hungry.

at home objects :: model kitchen kit, circa 1948 ::
made by hotpoint appliances
plastic, cardboard

"the small homes council in champaign, illinois used this kit to help families plan kitchen remodeling. the walls, doors, +and windows of the kit move so that homeowners can match their own room requirements. the pieces, representing electrical appliances + metal cabinets, can be arranged in many ways for maximum efficiency and use of space." i like the kitchen chairs!
