My Stepson has a knack for picking out very personal Clever gifts for Birthdays and Holidays... I had already rec'd a very cool Birthday gift last week from him. These very cool ceramic boxes, designed by Daniel Ballau a skateboarderd/musician turned industrial designer. They are "CARGO CONTAINERS" in homage to his childhood home in Long beach, CA and they go great in my home and my various collection of vintage ceramics...
http://areaware.com/ caries some of his things...fun place to check out...
Then yesterday, another package arrived, with what I usually expect from him... Fabulously selected personalized objects from Thrift Shops that usually fits one's personality to a T...
Or (T-Shirt in this case) ....speaking of "case"
This CASE arrived... see what I mean?
How did he know I needed a place to stash my fabrics and snacks? Next retreat I am taking this with me... You'll know who I am by this case I will be carrying...
Inside the case was this book, "READY MADES" this book is very "ME"as I run a round taking oodles of pictures very similar to the objects in this book (like here and here).... Images of Railroad cars, Pink houses (you know there is a PINK house in every town in America? ) Barns, Derelict gas stations, empty buildings, old signs, trucks etc.... I especially would have stopped the car to take a picture of a PINK house with a PINK truck!
I once stopped suddenly to take a picture of A PINK BARN, Jack pot!
Does this date me?
Thanks BOB! I wish I was as good at gift giving as you are....It's so much fun to open your packages! They are always SPOT ON. ;-)
More HST's today... I'm on a roll!
What's the best gift you've been given?
