criterion love

Alan and I are into classic things- from movies to furniture to hats to cooking.

We would not have given in to the ONLY 7.99 a MONTH!!!!!....
but we did to Hulu Plus when we found out they were going to host the Criterion* Collection.

So as a tribute to our new found love in films, here a few pieces inspired by one of the films.

"The Red Balloon"

*The Criterion Collection
The Criterion Collection is dedicated to gathering the greatest films from around the world and publishing them in editions of the highest technical quality, with supplemental features that enhance the appreciation of the art of film

Every year in Pelham they have this curbside pickup.

I go with my uncle and his family at midnight and scavenge through what people think is junk!

We found some pretty cool items but the pile below is what we put out there for the truck to get.

See we can let go of stuff...
 I found these tiny tiny ladders for our jasmine to grow on

 And this odd desk
 And we are thinking of moving to this house:)
 My precious Dakota- affectionately called Coco

I love my family
