Ranch/Rambler Homes

 Ranch Homes/ Rambler A Ranch Style home is an American original. Originating in the 1920’s with the post war boom of the middle class, this architectural style home fused modernist ideas with the American Western period of wide open spaces to create a casual lifestyle. One story living with a long low pitch roof and deep overhanging eaves. The roof line was primarily cross gabled, single gable or hip. The home itself was either rectangular, L or U Shaped.

Mother's Day

I work a really cute shop in Williamsburg. We are Quirks of Art. My boss is Jenn and she is a pretty cool lady. She is pretty well traveled, an accomplished runner, a damn good buisness owner and she is hot too. The other chicks I work with are Kristina and Monica. It's pretty crazy they are both Gemini's... but that's another story for another day.
 
I wanted to share with you my favorite picks for Mother's Day this year.
Lenny and Eva carry awesome cuff braclets. Offered in large or small, this is a charm for one of the larger cuffs.

 
Allen Designs offer cute wall clocks in vibrate colors.

 
Island Cowgirl is a great line of jewlery made in the USA from Huntington Beach, California. Rugged and Romantic is how I would describe this line. Isn't this the sweetest charm to share with your mother?
 
 
Painted Peace Poles are the perfect gift for your mom's garden. Made from PVC, they will never fade. These Peace Poles are also available with optional customizations such as magnetical street numbers.
 
 
 
I am in love with these "Dreamcatcher" Earrings by Island Cowgirl.
 
Zents are a great gift for your mom. The lotion is so thick and full of moisture but doesn't feel greasy. I love this.
 
What are you thinking about getting your Mom?
