Another Peek Inside a Jeff Shelton Apartment

••• The “coming soon” section of Compass’s website includes unit #2 at 225 E. Cota Street, a Jeff Shelton building. The listing photos offer another opportunity to see his work. Above: a time-out chair…?

••• Everything at the Summerland Antique Collective is at least 20% off through October. I bought the most beautiful mortar and pestle there on sale once.

••• Now that 2885 Hidden Valley Lane in Montecito is on the market, that makes two (that I know of) former Kenny Loggins houses currently for sale. The other is 999 Hot Springs. UPDATE 10/25:  The listing has been corrected to say that the former owner was Loggins’s one-time partner, Jim Messina.

••• The Riviera Theatre is about to start a retrospective of the films of Pedro Almodóvar, in advance of his latest, the acclaimed Pain and Glory, opening there November 1. All of the films are worthwhile, but I’m especially fond of Law of Desire (an early collaboration with Antonio Banderas) and Bad Education, and I wish there had been room for Matador.

••• I rescued two Styrofoam packing inserts that my husband had thrown in the garbage and took them to the relatively new Styrofoam-recycling collection area at 132 Nopalitos Way. Couldn’t have been easier. And maybe it’s just me, but I’m always tickled when I come across a stretch of unpaved sidewalk. Hope does Santa Barbara allow this?
