Slowood Studios

Grace Bonney at Design*Sponge is my heroine in the blogosphere, a pioneer of online design spotting and a champion of DIY. She has a huge and devoted audience, so she certainly doesn't need help from me sending visitors her way. Maybe it is just the editor in me, but I've decided that every once in a while, when I see slow love moments, I'm going to share them with my corner of the world--just in case you aren't subscribing to the same things I am. Today, Grace posted an item (and you should click on those words, Pops!) about a designer in Hudson, New York, named Jules Anderson, who makes furniture under the label Slowood Studios. Grace describes being stopped in her tracks by the beauty of the wood in these tables; I agree with her, and look forward to watching Jules develop her artistry.

Thanks for sharing this info. I love finding new artists and sources for my design work. Have a great weekend.

Dear Ms. Browning....Not to be more than usually egregiously-off-topic, BUT?....

About an hour ago, I was telling a very clever friend (I'd sent her to this blog of yours) about that really nasty, mean-spirited "response" someone posted to one of your earliest entries.

Her response was " Jerks are EVERYwhere. Well, fine....someone should tell that person to start his own blog....call it "Fast Hate Death"....and see how many people want to read THAT!...."

I thought her response was funny (and smart) and, so, am passing it on....

Level Best as Ever,

What a delight to discover your blog. Slowing down is truly a wonderful thing. My first thought was--- I wonder would we have a oil spill if someone had only slowed down.---- Thanks for making me stop and think and look!

I tried. Really, I did. But I could not avoid the distraction of all those ads to the right of the beautiful works in wood.

I understand the reality of offsetting expenses, but I sincerely hope your fabulous blog remains "ad free".

I just have to say that I am over half way through your book after hearing your interview on NPR a couple of weeks ago.
My husband, who is a manager at our Barnes & Noble was given IMMEDIATE instruction to purchase your book for me and I am in a dilemma....

On one hand, I can't put the book down and on the other hand, I DON'T WANT IT TO END!

I so relate to your story in such a personal way and I appreciate your candid voice.
