This may seem a little strange to some. I love my dish towels. I change them to match the season. My favorites are Williams Sonoma towels. They are also a great gift as many do not spend money on nice kitchen towels. I also have aprons to match. https://www.williams-sonoma.com/shop/homekeeping/dish-cloths-towels/?Kenshoo=31ff8ada-a0ac-4d3b-953d-69a68659a095&cm_ven=BrandSearch&cm_cat=MSN&cm_pla=Brand_Search_Generic_Exact&cm_ite=williams%20sonoma%20kitchen%20towels&msclkid=14b6fa28c75a10a6b2b9a645277b8470

Quite a Quote!

“Gratefulness is a double-edged sword. Because I think we’ve poured it into a feeling. And the batter of gratitude gets kind of stuck to the edges of the Williams Sonoma melamine mixing bowl. But gratefulness, the act of being grateful is actually… a verb. It’s an activity.” —Abigail Spencer.

Old Navy is coming to the Westfield Fashion Square mall in Sherman Oaks. The discount Gap Inc. retailer is slated to open in spring 2019, according to the signs that cover its future space in the mall on Riverside Drive. The space housed Pottery Barn which recently left the Sherman Oaks mall along with sister store Williams-Sonoma. Old Navy is known for lower prices than the struggling Gap stores. Until now, the closest Old Navy stores to the Sherman Oaks area are those at The Plant in Panorama City, The Beverly Connection and Westfield Century City malls in Los Angeles, and the Burbank Town Center and Northridge Fashion Center malls. Other Gap Inc. retailers at Wesfield Fashion Square include Gap, GapKids, Banana Republic and Athleta. Also coming to Westfield Fashion Square is shoe retailer Journeys, which specializes in brands that include Vans, New Balance, Birkenstock, Sperry, Puma and Converse. That store is also slated to open in spring 2019. Specialty apparel and footwear retailer Zumiez is also coming to Westfield Sherman Oaks with a summer 2019 opening date, according to the mall’s website. New arrivals that have already opened at Westfield Fashion Square include electric car company Tesla, which also has a retail space at the Westfield Topanga mall in Canoga Park. The Tesla store in Sherman Oaks helps customers buy electric vehicles and offers test drives at the mall location. Jewelry retailer Pandora has also recently opened at the Sherman Oaks mall.

SONOMA WRITERS ALLIANCE

by Dave Lewis          It was a balmy spring day. Wolfie was taking in the action next door as he lolled in the fenced-in backyard of his master’s bungalow. Since everything was flat at this home in the plains, he could survey a lot of space — as a pass-time — he wasn’t on long range […]

The Recruiter Mom

Yesterday my daughter was drawing me something so she had her little brother come ask me “Mom, what’s your favorite color?” I answered “Pink”. As he ran away to give his sister the much needed information I realized there is just something about pink that makes me happy. Maybe it’s because it’s girly, reminds me […]

Pasadena Star News
A couple of weeks ago, when I wrote about David Kipen’s cool-read of a new book, “Dear Los Angeles” — it’s like getting a curated history of Southern California in sweet candy-sized doses — the Pasadena scholar wrote and said thanks. And added: “So, is your next column about how Amazon should get over NY and eyeball Pasadena — squiggling from the power plant at the top of the 110 north to now-defunct Stats? I’d read that piece, and I might not be alone.” Me, try to encourage crony capitalism in my own hometown? Me, risk the wrath of progressive housing activists, a la Long Island City in Queens, who would kick the Bezos-heads right where it hurts so that they would shuffle off to Buffalo — or I don’t know, Modesto — where their jobs would be welcome? Until young people there, too, were paying $3k a month for a studio apartment above a garage? No, it ain’t me, babe, who’s gonna make that argument for the grand plan for Raymond Avenue. It’s a pretty cool street already, from the ArtCenter South Campus at Glenarm through Jones Coffee, Central Park, La Grande Orange and the best Gold Line platform, that shuttered purveyor of all things Christmasy, Stats, Osawa — the best restaurant extant in today’s Pasadena — on up past the great art gallery and art school that is the Armory and its super neighbor Everson Royce, seeming center of my own social as well as vinous life, and then the Italianate beauty of the St. Andrew tower. No, today — as I prepare for a few other matters next week, like getting a tour of Sequoyah High in celebration of the school’s 60th, and a similar visit to my alma mater Blair High’s revamped campus — I am going to go all over the map sooner than usual. • Was saddened when my friend Raleigh Young wrote with the news that her dad, Lud Renick, the longtime Pasadena entrepreneur and restaurateur, died last week. His signature restaurant, the Chronicle, on Granite off of South Lake Avenue, was for a quarter-century the closest joint this city ever had to a San Francisco-style pressed-tin ceilinged cool hangout, with its white ceramic-tile floors and central bar. It had one of the best wine lists in the state, which in a sense still lives on with the Chronicle Wine Cellars behind Pie ‘n Burger down the block on California, where in theory at least you might still be able to buy one of Lud’s old bottles from Mike. When Lud stretched to create La Couronne up Lake, the fanciest French restaurant the West had ever seen — at an Escoffier level of cuisine — it was too much for even the city’s carriage trade, who prefer prime rib with Yorkshire pudding. The fantastic room — now Williams Sonoma — lasted less than five years. In 1970 Lud ran for City Council, losing in the end to Kicker McKenney. He later moved to Sun Valley, where he won election to that Idaho resort’s City Council. He was a Renaissance businessman, who, among other endeavors, was a founder of Air California. Much more I don’t know about; will report back. Down one, this city needs more Lud Renicks for it to have any hope of a personality in the future. • Last Thursday night Pasadena artist Cyn Thiel joined Phoebe and me for a trip up to ArtCenter’s Williamson Gallery at the Lida Street campus for the opening of GARB: The Collision of Image, Body, Art, Object, Fashion, and Costume. It was the perfect St. Valentine’s experience. The show, co-curated by ArtCenter’s chair of illustration Ann Field and artist, writer and ArtCenter professor John David O’Brien, in association with Williamson Gallery Director Stephen Nowlin, the eclectic pieces on view have in common simply a fascination with what we wear and why we do so. Within those outlines, everything is welcome. There are versions of the original posters by Bob Peak for the film version of “My Fair Lady.” I ran into the person known to me as Folksinger Phranc, who it turns out is also Phranc, visual artist, who makes beautiful construction-paper dresses, and who said they were thrilled to be in a show that also features works by Edith Head. And who wouldn’t be? I was particularly entranced by the wonderfully woven, seemingly Fair Isle-straight sweaters by Lisa Anne Auerbach, with mottos in yarn such as “Mend the roads with the ruins of churches,” and an Irish-green number festooned with clovers proclaiming “O’Bama 2008.” Ah, nostalgia! The show is on view through June 9 at ArtCenter’s Hillside Campus. Write the public editor at lwilson@scng.com.
