Weekend Rush

Finally dropped off the bike frame and fork to the painter on Saturday. It'll be painted a beautiful olive green and back in my hands in 1 week! I can't wait. Unfortunately the rack has to stay silver— but I think it'll match the pedals nicely. Here's the before:


My friend Juliana works for David Stark, and flew in for the weekend to install the Target Pop Store she designed, housed in the Chicago Tribune building. I was more than happy and very fortunate to help install the show for 2 days. Too bad all the product placement and styling is going on during my work day. Today I was sitting in front of my computer, missing them and wishing I could be stacking boxes, arranging product, filling buckets with water for flowers… and all the physical labor involved in opening an event. I can't wait to see her designs come to life on Thursday when it opens up to the general public. Check it out if you can: Target Bazaar May 7-10, Chicago Tribune Building 10am - 8pm.

And then there's always good fun and good food to be had when good friends are visiting…
