...ah, that much needed place to drop keys, phone, whatever. Made from felted wool--to coordinate with a set of coasters and place mats we made...Very nice when there is already so much wood in a house--a soft place to land.

...another found inspiration while on a walk-about some time back. Initially, I just loved the shape, look, and feel of this fallen cedar branch. As I looked at the bottom where the branching starts I saw a stag head (profile)--I thought about carving the branch pieces into "antlers". But, then thought that would be too literal. A few weeks pass and while on a camping trip, I came across the spine of a fallen fawn in the woods. Then it hit me...
1. Levis 501's. I am committing to these guys fully this fall/winter. I haven't been able to get them "worn" in since our summer was so hot...
2. Redwings, of course.
3. Nylon "bomber-style" jacket from Gap--bought this many, many years ago and every time I wear it I am asked where I got it--a perfect jacket.
4. Shuron frames--you know, to see stuff...
5. Wool hand warmers
6. Cotton shirt--"military inspired". I actually found this shirt in a big-box discount store and I liked it so much, I bought 2 of them and in Khaki color as well.
7. Wool knit tie

I am excited that denim jackets with denim pants is "in" for fall. I have always loved the look and worn the combo. Here is a GREAT example from Baldwin Denim. I was actually watching the movie Drive with my wife, and since Ryan G. is sportin' denim with denim--now, all of a sudden, it's okay for me to do it.
