Tick Toc Tick Toc ....Let the Show Begin

 Dear Friends,
   Only twenty four hours until the premiere of Now Showing. Best ticket in town I do say. For my final sneak peek, I have saved one of my favorites, the movie Hugo, designed by the ever talented Stephanie Williams. "Hugo is set in a 1930s Parisian train station complete with a flower market and French cafe. Hugo is the story of an orphan who lives in the walls of a train station and tends to all the clocks. Amid the clocks, gears and pulleys, he dreams of fixing a delicate automaton that his father, a clockmaker, found once upon a time. Hugo repairs the automaton with mechanical parts salvaged from a toy store in the station. Hugo befriends the goddaughter of George Méliès, a French filmmaker. At Méliès home, they discover the history of cinema." She has done a fabulous job recreating the scene, just magic.

Can't wait to see you all tomorrow bright and early. The Now Showing Contest winners will drawn today at 4pm. Good luck,

Easy Rider, Annie's Gotta Gun

Dear Friends,
Now Showing would not be complete without action and western films. Scott has done a classic job displaying Easy Rider. He has mixed industrial pieces ingeniously. Great job Scott. Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper would be proud. Katie has kicked in her Cowgirl self and run wild with Annie's Gotta Gun. The vignettes are so fun and full of great western memoriblia. Perfect for our Arizona Style. Wait 'til you see Katie's vintage cowgirl boots artistically designed by her, love them.

O' Brother,Now Showing is Cooking with Julia

 Dear Friends,
The very talented Miss Sandra and Miss Lisa have done an amazing tribute to the movies Julie and Julia and Brother Where Art Thou. Sandra's collection of vintage Iron Stone and Amphora transport me into a European kitchen, incredible.  She has inspired my Holiday table settings for this year. Lisa has once again designed a clever industrial mix with her great eye for detail. Perfect for today's living with an edge of yesterday.
