Simple, organic, understated… that’s how I’d describe these beautiful ceramic pieces by The Netherlands artist, Margriet Kramer. (as always, click to shop!)

So my products are not perfect. Perfection doesn’t suit me, not in my house, not in my lifestyle, not in my ceramic products. Infact: imperfection is beauty to me!

Holiday Photo Card Favs – 2015

‘Tis the season to fa la la and time to start contemplating which holiday cards to send out. Today’s focus is on customizable cards; where you can add your photos and personalized sentiments, and, through the magic of the inter webs, it’s all printed up for you! I especially love that most companies off recipient addressing (sometimes even for free); that makes it all SO easy! This is, of course, for the type of person who has got their act together and remembers to do such things as order holiday cards earlier in the season than the typical off-the-rack shopper. I rarely fit into this group, but did it last year and actually was quite pleased with the whole thing. (As always, click to shop! Prices dependent on lots of variables, like quantities, envelopes, etc.. so I did not include that specific info here.)

Ambling through Antwerp – part 1

I had the privilege of visiting Antwerp, Belgium in October of this year; a place I’d never been before. It was such a pleasure to explore the city! Very urban and sophisticated in the city center – as you might imagine – but with a certain softness; a cozy, casual lifestyle that was uniquely its own. We also explored garden shops in outlaying areas, which made me yearn for spring before the last leaf of autumn had even fallen… Here’s the first batch of images from my retail excursions:

Today’s Track – I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For, U2

Tomorrow I hop on a plane bound for NYC to spend a long weekend with some of my dearest friends from college. So today I thought a memory-inducing track from back in the day was in order… I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For (live) by U2 from the album Rattle and Hum, 1988.
