The Sanna Annukka blue and white tray for Marimekko (, The Great Wave print by Katsushika Hokusai (, and the blue and white bone inlaid side table ( fabulous examples of non traditional blue & white combinations.

Will someone please buy me these most perfect Old Gringo cowboy boots from The Perfect Pair? Last week I was in Nashville doing a trunk show at the store (thanks to everyone who came out and bought jewels!) and tried these on the day they came in. Look closely at the electric blue stitching which stole my heart.

Ruthie Sommers

Oh Ruthie. Why do you have to go and make these rooms of yours so perfectly perfect. Damn you! Image from InStyle Home Spring 2007. Where do you find a couch like that anyway?

Second Home

Is that a disco ball I see? Oh, I wish that my "second home" could look like this! As if I had a second home. Living Etc., May 2007

Lisa Perry

Lisa Perry designs a line of women's clothing under the same name and while I am not a huge fan of the designs for myself, I do think her home in the Hamptons in pretty rad. Although, really? People live and sleep here? Doesn't look like it to me. Images from 1stdibs.

Hip Hugger

I'm normally not one to get jazzed about swim suit season. Hips and buttocks which have been hiding safely inside jeans and tights shudder at the thought. This Orla Kiely suit could have me (and them) singing another tune.


Oh. Hello. What are YOU doing here? I'm not sure what I'm doing here as the lengthy hiatus I've taken is inexplicable. Maybe it was the winter which was dragging on which dragged me down - but today it is a gorgeous Spring day here in Chicago. Everything's coming up, um, daisies?
