lingering summer feast with Crate and Barrel and The House That Lars Built

The sun has come to mean much more to me after living in Scandinavia where the winters last for so long. I find myself soaking it the last rays of summer for as long as I can before it goes into it’s annual hibernation. You just don’t know when it will resurface again and every year I’m certain it just won’t return. Three years of living in near permanent cold will do that to you.open faced sandwiches on Crate and Barrel copper tray

Sneak peek

I have some exciting news! I’ve designed 3 collections of dinnerware for a brand new company, Twig New York. Squeals! You know I love dinnerware! They’re letting me sneak peek a photo just in time for NYNOW, the gift fair in NYC, which starts this Sunday the 17th. The show is open to buyers and press only so the products aren’t available just yet, but once they are you will certainly know about it!

If you are part of the trade, go check out the new collections of Twig New York at booth 3148. They have collections with a few designers including one of my favorites, Molly Hatch.

Have a happy weekend!

The perfect summer sandal

I was talking to a friend while I was in NYC and she mentioned that she had found her perfect summer sandal. You know, the sandals you wear every day for the summer until they wear out. I hadn’t realized that this is a “thing”. I thought I was the only one who did this! Perhaps you do the same thing too? We’re all friends here, right? Friends help friends find the perfect summer sandal, right? Here’s what I’m looking for for this year, something plain and basic, leather, minimal (though I love the tassle ones on bottom left). Something to go with everything. Something that can withhold wear and tear. I went on a sandal window shopping spree this weekend and found some options, but I’m thinking that collectively we can provide a whole resource.

Ideas?!?!

Clockwise from top: blue sandals  |  gold sandals  |  black and tan  |  yellow/tan  |  black/cognac  |  cognac  |  tassles  |  strappy 

PS- I know saltwater sandals have been back for a bit, though I’ve missed the trend while I was in Denmark. I think they are adorable and I’d get them in red, though I think the designers should think about a different design for adults where they raise the back strap like the bottom center picture above. Then, I’d be more prone to buying them. Just a suggestion, guys.
