Amongst the gloomy stack of bills which awaited me today, there was a very bright light–the new issue of Elle Decor! There is a story about a couple living in the Hudson Valley (where my brother lives, and where I spent Wednesday night) and I was struck by a black and white painting on the wall in their dining room. The artist is Raymond Saa and here is some fairly recent work. I quite love the layering and repetition of shapes to create a texture and movement, which is strangely the same technique I tried in my most recent collection of jewelry. You see more of Raymond's work here.

I'm finally back from my whirlwind of travels for two shows and visiting friends and family. I've got lots of good photos to upload but first I wanted to share these festive Holiday plates from Kate Spade. So modern and colorful -- I LOVE them!

Yesterday I had the BEST visit with my good friend Jami Chiang of Letterspace Paper. She was one of the originals who paved the way for totally charming and unique paper goods. I brought coffee and my beloved dog Guffman and we visited for about an hour. Guffman hung out in the sun of the storefront and I marveled at Jami's unbelievable organizational skills. Truly? It's inspirational. AND the best part was that Jami gifted me these adorable nesting doll cards. Visit her site at www.letterspacepaper.com There's no shortage of yummy designs!

Do you remember seeing Domino Magazine's August 2008 story on the totally magical Richmond home of Quirk Gallery owner Katie Ukrop? Do these photos ring a bell? Well, I have the very special honor of doing a trunk show at Quirk on November 21st and 22nd. If luck remains on my side I will be staying at Katie's in one of the countless princess-like rooms in her historical home. Show details and times to follow!

In a perfect world clutter doesn't exist. Commercial photographer Sharon Montrose is just ridiculously talented at boiling it down to the bare minimum and finding every last drop of gorgeous. I am adoring the dog photos, but the kids are awfully cute, too. I suppose. Please check out the rest of her spotless work here.

My friend Bari Zaki is a bookbinder and boxmaker here in Chicago who has also started a wonderful collection of paper goods. She's got a studio in Roscoe Village that would make any paper lover swoon with envy! Here are some fun decorative stickers she made for sealing envelopes or decorating presents & place cards; what she calls "Noteworthy Miscellany": envelopes adorned with gorgeous vintage stamps; as well as vintage postcards. This year her studio sale will be on December 6 and 7 so if you are in Chicago, check out her site for details and stop by!
