Raymond Saa

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.

Whirlwind Travels!

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!

G the Letterspace Dog

Jami sent me these pictures she took while we were visiting her studio. I couldn't resist. I had to post all of them.

Letterspace Paper

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 There's no shortage of yummy designs!

Richmond Bound

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!

I am please to announce another stellar new account for Winifred Grace. Georgie Boutique located in downtown Charlottesville just placed their first order. We're just thrilled! They also carry 3.1 Philip Lim, See by Chloe, and Catharine Malandrino to name just a few.

Ashes and Milk

I do believe your Winifred Grace jewelry would look totally lavish and geode crystal-like pouring out of these bowls by artist Yosinori Yamamoto. Don't you? Available online at Chicago's own Ashes and Milk.

Sharon Montrose

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.

Hudson Home

Please. You're killing me. I just fell in love with orange suede. If I lived in Boston I'd have to visit this ottoman weekly. Available at Hudson (in Boston).

And as long as I'm headed to Playa del Carmen, I might as well throw in this Calypso dress as well!

Hotel Basico

Already dreaming about a place to wear those Erin Fetherston flowing linen pants. Playa del Carmen, Mexico will do just fine. Hotel Basico – barebones and cool, anything but ordinary!

Erin Fetherston

Erin Fetherston's Spring 2009 Collection is just delightful! Light, airy and feminine–I love it! And just look how darling Erin herself is–she looks like the clothes she designs, doesn't she?
