What Goes Around...
Today I received in the mail a well-known shelter mag's 1968 holiday issue. I'm saving it for later, but some of the story titles are so in-step with recent blog posts that it is amusing.
First there's Patchwork Quilting: Coming Into Colorful Renascence, with accompanying photos from the design studio of Parish-Hadley. The bench above (so Sister and a little Jonathan Adler too!) is shown as inspiration for the woman with no time to quilt; grosgrain ribbons are simply sewn together in a chic pattern. "Something she can do before Christmas." Also featured is an article, Whatever Happened to the Portrait?
Next is Animal Spirits: New Life for the Accessory. Animal figures are deemed "the" accessory to have that year. Shown above, three bronze 18th-century greyhounds from Joseph Braswell's collection.
