Palm Springs. sun-soaked desert vistas, palm tree dotted neighborhoods, and mid century modern architecture. An absolute must for a destination wedding. The two weddings below are each an example of a wedding using Palm Springs’ (often luxurious) hotel destinations to the full. And as you can see, each features photography from some truly talented people you may want to tap for your own event.

Given the amount of times I’ve searched “mid century”, I can’t believe this is the first time I’ve stumbled upon this blog. Southern California based, Mid Century Modern Remodel, is run by Rebecca Gonzalez. I’ve become a fast fan of her first hand house tours and keen photographs. Here is a sample of her “Venice Eclectic” coverage. Although, not focusing on mid century, there is a sense of discovery rounding each corner as Gonzalez documents a range of Venice’s distinct environments.

So it may have been a little while since I’ve posted ANYTHING. As I know you understand, life has been taking over a bit. Work especially — which is not a terrible thing. I’ve majorly scaled down what was my main business and I’m expanding another. Two good choices, but up until right now, blogging was on the backburner.

Much thanks, by the way, to many of you who have kept me on your blogrolls despite the fact Adella Avenue has been corpus nonexisticus. Up until today, that is.
So what have I been up to …
Pinterest. The mania continues.
For those of you that loyally follow my Pinterest account, you know I am still a rabid pinner. ”Outside” seems to be my favorite pinboard, so I hope you love an eyefull of fire pits, pools, and succulent landscaping.
Oh and did I mention major home renovations and redecorating. I don’t have the cash to hire one of these guys, but I’m definitely working on a spruce on the cheap.
Threshold for Target anyone?
Lastly, being the skate (and surf) video junkie I am, there is Tony Hawk’s Secret Skatepark Tour.
Gather the kiddies around for this one.
That’s my deal. Glad to be back.

This weekend, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, Bob Hope’s Toluca Lake home will offer to the public some of the family’s possessions in preparation for the estate’s eventual sale. Hope, who died in 2003, followed by his wife in 2011, claimed this as his family’s home. Although additional furniture and artwork will be auctioned off next year, this is an opportunity to glimpse the life of one of Hollywood’s legends, and perhaps take a little piece of that history home.
