hometown homage


a friend of rush’s and mine as well, turned her on to this website , and after further discovery i felt it needed to be shared. the company is cle clothing.

now i know that there are a lot of start up t-shirt companies out there these days, but this one really pulled on my heart strings, obviously for the hometown love, and if you can’t guess by now it’s cleveland.

personal favorites are browns love, 216, and cuyahoga. i think the real appreciation is being 2500 miles away from home and still showing a little love. i couldn’t find out much more about the company besides the sweet t’s, so i would like to find out more….if you’re out there let us know.

fingers crossed there will be a westside suburbs collection, rocky river….what.

ok, and in the same theme i also want to give you a taste of a fantastic cleveland artist…sean mic.

Ps I made this last night.




and it was delicious! Braised pork shoulder spiced with fennel seed, coriander and cumin. Browned and then slow roasted until the meat fell apart. I was in pork heaven. From Suzanne Goin’s Sunday Suppers fall menu, served with polenta. A first for me, and a success.

How do we feel about these?

From craigslist. I’ve been looking for some simple chairs to cover in this orange and white merimekko cow print that I’ve been saving forever. I think I like these even the way they are, the are retro sure but not crazy and I think could work in different settings. I love the legs. They are only $75 each, I bet I could get a deal if I got 2 of them. No place to put them of course but that’s not how I think about things. If I find it, and I like, I buy it and just wait for it to work. Then again, these could be really ugly and I’m just blind to it, so French? Opinion on these? Thanks. -Rush
