Me, Barbie and the Eames Aluminium Club!

The Eames Aluminium Club, Barbie and I - what do we have in common? We were all born in 1959! I am pleased to say that I am YOUNGER than Barbie. She was born in March and I was born today on the 1st of October 50 years ago! Barbie is still going strong and these office furniture designs from the 1959 Eames Aluminium Club catalogue are as current as ever [I am sitting on a copy of 1 as I write].[a copy of the chair - not the cataolgue!]
It's nice to know that I am in good company - [but please if you say 50... say it very softly!]
I am on a conference for the rest of the week. Next week I will be telling you more about the products and the people in my shop!

Thanks everyone!!! You never think 50 will come. You think it only happens to other older people!

Oh, I just had such a good laugh now ... this morning I couldn't imagine who set the height of the chair so that you need to sit on a catalogue.

Happy Birthday to yooooooooouuu!!! I hope you've had a wonderful day Denise - full of love, laughter and celebration, and also that it heralds the start of your very very bestest decade yet! No-one knows better than you how something can be reinvented and often becomes something even better and more beautiful in its new incarnation - I reckon fab forties just became FAB {whispers} fifty!!! :)

P.S. I hope there was cake!
