New favorite Online Store

I found this awesome online store and couldn't wait to share it. Three Potato Four is wonderful for the collector in all of us. Especially those of us who are too busy to find these treasures ourselves. I absolutely adore the typewriters and the giant sign letters. This husband and wife team have a great eye for detail, which is no surprise since they both have a background in graphic design. Their is a wide range of products both old and new to please the collector in all of us.

Visit their shop here.

Charlie Harper

Charley Harper (August 4, 1922-June 10, 2007) was a Cincinnati-based American Modernist artist. He was best known for his highly stylized wildlife prints, posters and book illustrations.

In a style he called “minimal realism”, Charley Harper captures the essence of his subjects with the fewest possible visual elements. See more of his artwork here.

Designer Todd Oldham produced a book of Charlie Harper's illustrations call Illustrated Life. This book is on my list of must haves, see it here.

Cap'n my Cap'n

Jonathan Adler's Utopia Cap'n & Stewardess Vases are charming and feel like the 70's to me. I love the captain especially, because I'm married to one. Although I notice the captain has an anchor on his hat, which may make him more suitable for navigating water than flying the friendly skys. Find them here.
