Magnificent Mid-Century!

Since Gabriel and I just moved into our first house this year we have run up against a problem we never had before: how to furnish a place that is really ours! We want to be eco-friendly of course, so choosing vintage pieces seemed natural. The house was built in the early 70's, but it has a sort of "Atomic Ranch" feel so we decided to go with that era and aesthetic.  So here, for your viewing pleasure, is our first find, a beautiful Danish modern chair in mint vintage condition! It was built in the late 50's or early 60's and still has the original upholstery. And it really is Danish, having only arrived in this country a few weeks ago. 

We were instantly in love with it, but a question remained. 
Would our house mates approve?

Fortunately, the answer is yes. Cooper Cat has adopted the new/old chair as his favorite lounging spot, leaving us free to begin searching for a matching side table...

So, I seem to have a blog now!

Yes, it's true. The Frog Bag is now a blog as well as an Etsy shop. I'm Corinna, the person behind the frog avatar. I make all sorts of fun jewelry and needle craft, with an emphasis on up-cycling. This owl pin cushion is one example, made from the core of a roll of tape, a canceled stamp, felt, and beads.

I also work at a small zoo, so this blog will be full of animal stories. My husband Gabriel and I are now hard at work on a second graphic novel after having our first, Heathentown, published early this year. So adventures in writing and promoting are fair game as well. Thanks for visiting!
