There once was a boy named Tom. Tom was a naughty boy. Tom did not play nice with others. Tom would visit a certain blog and every now and again leave really mean comments. One day one of the girls from that blog told him he should shut his big mouth and show her what he’s made of. Finally, Tom did just that, and sent photos of his home to share. As much as the girl wanted to be mean right back and rip him a new one (perhaps poke fun at the tables with 2 lamps on either side of his sofa, or the tables piled with wood in his dining room), alas she could not once she saw these photos. Because she loved his home. Very very much. She forgave Tom right then and there. She found out Tom wasn’t as mean as he seemed, and Tom promised to behave from then on. THE END.
My apartment is in a historical building on Hollywood Blvd across from the Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.
“The Hollywood Professional Building, is a prime example of Gothic Revival architecture. Completed in 1925, the building housed the headquarters of the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, and was later home to the Screen Actor’s Guild. From its inception, these offices served industry stars, the seminal architect John Lautner and earned its listing in the National Register of Historic Places. Today, it reigns at the center of a new Hollywood heyday, this time as modern open spaces in which to live or work (or both), only two blocks from the Metro line, in one of the coolest and most dynamic neighborhoods in LA.”
I took the photograph that is in my entry on Hollywood Blvd last year.
My living room was Ronald Reagan’s office when he was the president of the Screen Actors Guild.
You will notice a lot of the same sculptures moved around to various tables, it’s a work in progress. I mostly shop at flea markets, I’m constantly switching stuff out as I find it.
I made the hanging glass mobile out of an old chandelier and added the textured panel to the wall. The sculpture is constantly spinning.
