Well, hello there! Welcome to Bows & Sparrows. My name is Erin and I'm a writer, a coffee addict, an ellipses abuser, a list maker, a hater of cardio workouts, a believer that my dog is the best dog ever, a hair twirler, a graphic designer...and more.
Part of the thrill I get from blogging is being able to share all the talented designers, fabulous boutiques, covetable products, stunning homes and style-savvy fashionistas that I discover - whether they be from the city where I reside (Sacramento, CA) or from halfway around the globe.
I'm glad you stopped in and...I hope you'll take off your coat, pull up a chair and stay for awhile. Oh, and if you're feeling inspired, leave me a comment or shoot me an email introducing yourself - I'd love to meet the virtual you!
Without the lovely images featured on Bows & Sparrows, this blog just wouldn't be the same. I do my best to credit each image or photo I use, and will gladly remove one if requested to do so - just let me know.
Bay Area-based designer Chris Brigham, the brains behind Knife & Saw, has created a solution for indoor bike storage or, as he calls it, "elegant bike management." Brigham's "bike shelf" - which is what he's calling it until he comes up with something more clever- is fashioned from solid wood (walnut or ash) and a steel rod mount. The sleek shelf provides a means for storing (and displaying) your bike and whatever else you want to place on the shelf (flowers, books, your helmet...the sky is the limit). The shelf is designed to hold most frames, but you can check out the specs just to make sure.
