Summit of Democrat

Happy Thursday! Doug and I hiked up to the summits of 14,184 foot Mt. Democrat and 14,285 foot Mt. Lincoln on Tuesday. Here is a video view from the summit of Mt. Democrat... We started hiking at just under 12,000 feet elevation. From there we walked and snowshoed up to a saddle (a ridge between two higher points) at 13,200 feet then up to Democrat's summit, back down to the saddle, up to Lincoln's summit, back to the saddle and down to the start. We slid down two big snow fields to come down from the saddle, which capped off a really fun day!

Yesterday's Run

When I started my running program back in late March, I said I'd take my camera along. It's ended up being my iphone because it's less bulky, and I'm usually breathing too hard to snap photos. But yesterday's run was a slow, fun recovery run and I took a few...It makes me very happy to be out in this beauty consistently. I also feel much stronger and better than I did a few months ago. I hope you too are able to be outside this weekend! Thanks for visiting me this week - I love reading your comments.

Happy Summer!

Ah, the first official day of this restorative season! I hope yours is going so well and that you're spending lots of time outdoors. This would be a nice place to do that, huh? Perhaps it's made the rounds, but it's worth another look...An amazing lake house in Montauk on Long Island, by Murdock Young Architects.

Happy late Monday to you! I hope you had a fantastic weekend. I thought I'd tell you that we definitely need these adorable cups in my house... for two of the three of us. I just might be one of the those two. I think I'll spend a day with my little slowpoke at the local art studio making two ceramic ones just like these! His could hold his hot chocolate, mine my coffee. This original is from a new coffee house, Slowpoke Espresso, in Melbourne, Australia. Found thanks to Remodelista.

Beautiful Weekend

I hope you have a lovely weekend! I'm running in a 5k trail race tomorrow, which should be fun, and hard. Maybe I'll visualize this pretty painting and the fun pieces below it while I climb the big hill... These are being offered at the LA Modern Auction being held later in June. The painting is Crouching Figure by Frederick Wight, the floor lamp is French modern, maker unknown but it looks a lot like a Nelson lamp shade to me. The last is a Pig Planter by Rex Goode. See you Monday and thanks so much for visiting me here!

on Flathead Lake in Montana...This says Summer to me! And Flathead Lake, a perfect Summer destination in itself, is only a 20 minute drive from Glacier National Park. We visited seven years ago and we'll definitely go back with Eddie in the next couple of years. We loved it there!

So Pretty

From Dual on 1st Dibs, an azure ceramic Meridian clock for Raymor...

Their description:
A ceramic clock with a Bitossi Rimini Blue style design of impressed geometric forms and glazed in azure and light green. Ceramic body made in Italy, designed by George Nelson, clock components by Howard Miller Clock Company and distributed by Raymor. Italian, circa 1950.

I think it would look great and so summery on my kitchen wall!
I hope you've had a perfect Sunday. I'm refreshed and looking forward to the new week! Be back soon.

At Sotheby's

It is a beautiful Wednesday here and I'm loving it! Today we have a few pieces I'm coveting from Sotheby's upcoming auction of Important 20th Century Design. This Lalanne hippo opens into a bar - go see!... a Francois-Xavier Lalanne hippopotamus bar, a Gilbert Rohde floor lamp, a Line Vautrin box, and an Ilonka Karasz tea and coffee service. Enjoy and thank you for visiting.

Summery Pretty

Happy Tuesday to you! Apparently I need to get Elle Decor Italia from March 2011...I could spend a lot of my Summer relaxing in front of those windows. All these are from Inside and its counterpart Outside, originally from Elle Decor Italia. I found Inside thanks to the lovely Nelya of Head Over Heels.
The top two photographs, at least, are by Damian Russell for Elle Decor Italia.
