While on the mend from this nagging cold that’s been going around during the last days of winter, I’ve either been laying in bed, feverishly working on freelance, taking a break to watch a few grim episodes of Breaking Bad, or collecting pretty pictures on Pinterest. I came across something that really peaked my interest:

This past summer, I found an $8 thrift score that had me swooning: sculptured black metal eyeglasses hidden behind random knickknacks in Housing Works, Brooklyn:

I was so giddy over my weird little find, though I had no backstory as to where they came from; did someone hand make these? I pictured an art student welding them for a workshop then tossing them out after the class was over.

Turns out, HGTV Stylist + Lifestyle guru Kelley Moore had the same piece in her house tour for Rue Magazine/October 2012. I even tried color coding our books too back in 2011, similar to the Pinterest photo here, though I returned to a grayer palette. Creative minds thinks alike, and I’m happy to be creatively on par with Kelley Moore any day!
