It has the keys! If I were able to keep a secrete stash of something it would be Hello Panda cookies.
My signficant other likes to act like they are no big deal, ‘they’re just ok’ he says. I know his game. I was fooled once by his seemingly disinterest in Hello Panda’s. Then I come home after a hard day at work and what do I find…ALL MY PANDAS GONE. GONE I say. Gone. I felt so many emotions that day, loss, sadness, betrayal, defeat…the list goes on. So yeah, I would totally lock up all kindsa secrete snacks if I had this roll top desk.

40.00 San Jose South
I enjoy the color of this wood.

225.00 Pacific Heights
One of the blogs I follow made a post about a rug she got. In a nutshell the rug was hard to find and hard to get for a decent price. I thought to myself,   how hard  is it to find a rad rug on craigslist? So I searched and searched. This was the best I could do. It’s 78″x55″. It be great if it was huge but it is not huge. I am gonna get the hang of rug searching guys, dont worry!

Designers: Walter Bosse

20 Apr

In celebration of monday nights cider and bronze “ooooo”ing and “awe”ing animal search, I present to you the super adorable creations of Walter Bosse.
Walter Bosse was born the year of 1904 in Vienna and passed in 1979 in Iserlohn Germany.

Walt made these cute lil’ dudes in the 40’s. He worked for loads of people through out his life;  Metzler (1930), Ortloff Porzellenfabrik in Ilmenau(1930), Goldschieder of Vienna (1928-1932), Geobel (1940’s), Karlsruher Majolika (1950-1972), and Hagenauer of Vienna (1950’s). Currently Design Within Reach has reproductions of his work available for purchase.

“Bosse worked in ceramic but ended up finding “a great love for brass”. His early ceramic figures were used to cast new brass models. Handcrafted in solid brass and hand finished to a golden sheen with black patina, this new style originated by Bosse and partner Herta Baller became known as the “Black Golden Line.” (Via Modern Vienna Bronze)

Austria Brass is a  shop on etsy that carries his work/reproductions.
