Why no jump in the pool?




A good question from our 2.5 year old. (And she doesn't jump, no matter how many times you play it again, to see if she will. And the doggies don't either. ) Otherwise, what a great little film.

Everybody Hustle poster: new colors!

Hustle

Inspirational poster derived from an old company motto hanging in a 1920's office. We thought it was so appropriate for these times that we redesigned it a little to hang in our own office. (It should hang in everybody's office!) This new version has a completely different, darker, vibrant colorway

$45, in our shop.

1949 - The Arnold and Selma Potter House, Cape Elizabeth ME.  Although the house has since been added onto (a bedroom wing) and the materials stripped back to bare wood from its original coated surface, the house's form remains intact. Today, the screens are closed in with glass.
