Meet Jack, Be Nimble

As much as I love vintage housewares and home decor I am not a purist.  My home is a combination of old and new and the only absolute rule I have is that I must love it.  Doesn't matter if it is high brow or low brow.  Old or new.  It just has to have that something-something that calls my name.

When I did the pop up shop during Tucson Modernism Week I had the pleasure of meeting Shannon Lester, a landscape designer who is now designing modern planters.  Beautiful shapes and colors with a nod to the mid mod aesthetic make these planters stand out.

Shannon is currently running a limited promotion on Etsy on her "Jack-Be-Little" planter.  Buy a $75 gift certificate now for delivery in March and you'll save $50 off retail.  Be nimble and get Jack before this special promo ends.  Here is the link for Steel Life on Etsy.

Thrift Shop by Macklemore

Things have been busy at HCV lately!  Last weekend I was part of the Pop Up Shop at the first annual Tucson Modernism Week!  It was loads of fun,  met lots of great people and it warmed my heart to see my fellow Tucson denizens come out to show some modernism love.

Busy has been great but I have not been out shopping!!  Yes, I am going through withdrawals (thanks for your concern)  so since I haven't been able to make it out to the thrifts I thought I would live vicariously through this video.

It's a great laugh but please know there is explicit language and is not for the kids!
