Let’s tilt this a smidge.

Happy (Future) Father’s Day

catching-bugs-6

When you meet “The One” there are things that are both beautiful and intimidating about that person. A lot of times those are the things you fall in love with. The things you would never want them to change.

For me, one of those things about Cale is the fact that he’s always wanted to be a dad.

The oldest of 5 kids I think fatherhood was sorta birthed into him.

He has this innate since with children that totally intimidates me.

A Designer Handy Man

life-handyman-1

One of the things that I love about my husband is the fact that he enjoys using his architectural degree as a handy man around our little farm. His design philosophy is one that marries the function of a building with great aesthetics. The longer we are married the more I respect this opinion and see the need for both. When Cale is working on a project, at home or for a friend, he wants to give them a solution that is aesthetically pleasing, money saving, and as efficient as possible. Now, this doesn’t mean he uses “cheap” materials, but when he can, he prefers to use found materials instead of purchasing new. It’s this old school philosophy of using what you have, married with his love for design, that makes him the perfect designer handy man.

Slow Sundays

life-sunreading1

Welcome to 2012! I know we took an “extended” break from blogging and such but it was something that our sanity required. Christmas was sorta of whirlwind of busy excitement and emotions (we’ll fill you in later). With that said this Sunday was the first Sunday in months that we’ve been able slow down and do things “our” way. We slept in (we’ll I did… Cale got up and pittled around outside like an old man) and then once I got up we had breakfast/lunch together at our kitchen table! A small miracle I might add since our table has been covered with products and other Green Couch Design projects since August.

One of our goals in 2012 includes more meals around the table (even if that means we get stuck staring at each other from time to time with a bit of awkward silence, and the sound of food chomping). We need that time for us. Where home feels like “home” and not just the place where we run our business.

One Year Polka Dot Party

IMG_4414

So here we are 1 year from the start. Last year this time we posted about new beginnings, and told a story about a little snail and our first leap into full-time self-employment. Well that little snail isn’t so little anymore, and it’s not something we can protect as much as it’s something we try to keep up with. Right there with us is our beautiful niece Ember who, it just so happens, is turning 1. We spent the weekend in Tulsa for her birthday and were amazed at how much the little snail had grown.

Leave it to a new mom to have the party of the century for her little girl. Everything was in circles…hmmm is she trying to say something about her little ball of joy? She is definitely running us in circles.

Back in the Saddle Again

Horizontal-GringCale

I awoke this morning in a bit of a haze. It seems this last week we’ve gone from 0-60 which has felt like going from crazy to insane. It was near 1 am last night when I finished my last email and decided to throw all cares out the window (at least for that moment) to be a little selfish and not worry about the Friday blog post that was yet to be written. I’ve been determined lately to not let “business” and “schedule” dictate our life so in moments like last night…I’m sorry friends but I choose sleep!

But then, this morning left me a little melancholy and I couldn’t get back to sleep. There was this thing in my heart that I needed to share and this blog post kept coming out of me. So, no worries. I didn’t skip out on you guys this time. Here it is…

A Blast from the Past

studio-extra

This past weekend we packed our bags and headed north on I-35 to a little college town called Stillwater. Since graduating from Oklahoma State I’ve visited often to see friends and to enjoy catching up but I’ve never made time to tour the newest jewel on campus: the Donald W. Reynolds School of Architecture.

Rainy Days

GCD 780x432

A little pause for the rainy days. It’s gray and drippy here, with moments of sun and blue sky. It makes you want to take a long walk in the wheat field or through the trees. So here is a little something for the rainy days.


Meet Cale

Hi, I’m probably the youngest old man you’ll ever meet. I know that sounds strange but the reality is I can’t wait to get old. I have already acquired a good rocking chair and I’m in the process of finding the perfect pipe. With these two necessary items I will be destined to sit on the front porch and solve the world problems with a slight grumble and ornery smile. But until then I have two other pursuits, Landscape and Industrial Design. I create for both inside and out, and strive constantly to bring the two together, whether it’s hand made pots for the living room or full scale seating and outdoor kitchen designs for a patio. I love to create.
