Garden & Gun does Halloween

We were so honored to be included in this spooky post by our super talented friend Jessica Mischner, creator and writer of Garden & Gun magazine’s Southern in the City blog.

This past weekend, the Guggenheim Museum exhibited 25 finalists from its YouTube Play collaboration, which sought to discover the “most creative video in the world.” Although the videos–judged by a panel including performance artist Laurie Anderson, the music group Animal Collective and filmmaker Darren Aronofsky–were only on view this weekend in NYC, they can still be seen online (of course) on Here are a few of our favs:

LA: Green With Envy

For a couple of garden obsessed gals who must be content with window boxes and potted herbs instead of yards, we spent a lot of time marveling at all the beautiful, lush vegetation found all over LA. Here are a few things we loved.

After reading about Carey Mulligan’s recent trip to the Hashimoto Nursery in the latest issue of Vogue, we looked it up and off we went. We liked it so much we went back again.
Bouganvilla is one of our favorite flowering plants and we couldn’t resist this gorgeous hot pink bouganvilla tree, which we bought for our client to put in a gorgeous pot for her garden (and we thought it was a steal at $200!).

We loved the rows and rows of the different varieties of grasses. Hard to choose which one we loved the most.

Found these benches at this great shop on La Brea. Wouldn’t they add a wonderful bit of interest to any garden?

Big, gorgeous, white washed pots which we thought would be great with or without anything in them.


Put down whatever you are doing and go check out Pates Tapes. This is a friend of a friend’s site who organized 1000+ hours of an amazing personal music collection recorded from vinyl, tape, and digital into mixtapes that you can listen to for free! Hits>The Old Man Down The Road and Rhythm N Blues>I Can’t Stand the Rain are a few current favs.

Los Angeles

With a new project out in LA, we have been given a chance to discover the bounties that city offers. The food was delicious; the hiking superb; the stores plentiful. The next couple posts will reveal some of our finds beginning with the killer antique stores in Pasadena where we were inundated with the color Kelly green.

One of 7 agate bowls that we wanted to take home.

Kelly green Asian Armoire…yes please!

Gorgeous decorative bowl and massive Asian ceramic pot
