Chateau Redux

Late last year you may have read a post we wrote bemoaning the fact that the brand new archival pigment-inked print on 100% cotton rag paper we bought from 20x200 was being featured on USA Network's Characters Approved blog. Upon realizing that nothing is sacred and one cathartic blog post later... we were over it. Cut to FIVE MONTHS later and we've finally gotten around to framing this beauty.

Pies and Bungalows

via HBO

Mildred Pierce is a movie about 1930's houses in Glendale, CA. There's also a minor sub-plot involving a woman who bakes pies or something. You'll have to forgive me in advance since, having grown up in and around Glendale, I was paying less attention to Mildred's psychological turmoil and more to whether or not the film was naming real streets and places. Well, lo and behold it did. But it's also shockingly beautiful and depicts Glendale in a highly favorable light; like some kind of mecca of Spanish-style bungalows.
