i bought this fabric bound 5 year diary by shopsin’s general store from rare device… each page is one day, with 5 rows for each year, so an entry for jan 10th ’09 will go below today’s entry. i’m planning to use it as a day planner rather than a diary, but i think it will be fun to look back and see what i was doing a year ago to the day, two years to the day, etc…

notes by naive has a new lo-fi san francisco guide.
she captures the city beautifully… i just love her photos.
today we went to the heath ceramics factory/store in sausalito. it’s such an inspiring place. every piece is still made there, in the original heath studio. to see a business thriving, which has stayed true to its belief in the craft of local manufacturing, and appreciation for the beauty of hand-crafted objects and the artisans who create them, is really encouraging. as a designer/small business owner, i liked reading about the “heath values” on their website.
it’s been nice and sunny most of our time here, but today it started raining, and it was actually very cozy… as we drove across the golden gate bridge to heath.
