A little too close to home

Zebra Mussels have taken over Dallas, TX!!! My hometown! Ahhhh! They have taken up residence in Lake Texoma and will likely, if not already, move into Lake Lavon. The Dallas Morning news says "they are multiply at a dizzying rate, and no one knows how to eradicate them". (sadly, it is not an easy task) They were first noticed in the Great Lakes in 1988, and have slowly moved south - surviving for days outside of water. Crazy. More info here.

The Rat Chandelier is on the road - heading to The Blair Museum of Lithophanes in Toledo, Ohio to be part of "Ceramics Illuminated". Our good friend and ceramic expert/historian Dr. Margaret Carney is the curator of this exhibition, bringing us together (finally) with Roy Lichtenstein, Harry Allen Designs, and Jack Earl. Super cool. If you don't know what a lithophane is, take a look here to find out more.
The show opens Sept. 6th - so take a trip out to Toledo if you are in the neighborhood. I love this musuem all the ceramic history that it has to offer. (and if you haven't heard it is also Laurel Blair's 100th birthday - and there will be cake!)

I am so happy to announce that Non Fiction made the pages of Lucky Magazine! (Best in Show at that) I have been a loyal subscriber for a long time - seriously years - so I know how great the designers and products that they feature are. The stylists took some lovely photos of our work, and the editors even did a post on Lucky's blog - check it out here. For more tips on where to shop and what to get, check out their website, (huge thank you to Heather and Emily)
