me: documentary + design = heaven

My husband and I both love to watch documentaries.  Last night I watched a documentary about Charles and Ray Eames for the second time.  I loved it again!




If you love documentaries and you love design I highly recommend this documentary (which you can watch online!  cool!):

If you get inspired to own a piece of Eames yourself there are lots of great selections on Etsy.


Some of my other favorite documentaries:

King of Kong -- a surprisingly entertaining documentary about the world of competitive classic video games.

Man on Wire -- I just watched this again a couple weeks ago.  Inspirational documentary about drive and destiny.

I love Eames! I used to work for a company that provided designer furniture to companies, we were lucky enough to have loads of Eames chairs dotted around, including the incredible rosewood and leather lounger!

I LOVE Men on Wire! Dont know the other ones but this one is really great. Thanks for your lovely comment on my cake in a jar. We have the same problem, always lots of cake left over, so this size is perfect. and it means baking once and eating four times :-).
i like your blog (love the pillows!) and am your newest follower. i would be honored if you would like to follow back, but no hard feelings if not :-).
have a lovely week
