Catalina Dreamin'

A few weeks ago we took our first-ever trip to the beautiful island of Catalina.  Just for a weekend.  Just enough time for some great Springtime walks, punctuated with a little karaoke and a lot of zip-lining.  During one early morning coffee-search, we came across this cool boat-like house, right in the middle of downtown Avalon:

As we got closer, Ian noticed something very familiar hanging by the front door:
One of the Seaside-themed "Mini Message Plaques" we designed 10-or-so years ago for Santa Barbara Ceramic Design.  It was so nice to see the colors looking so fresh and new after (presumably) weathering many seasons by the sea.  Wonderful reminder that the products we have so much fun designing can live on for years and years.  And sometimes in the most charmingly-appropriate places!
