nice, france

it is definitely starting to turn sandal weather ! i love this season, where skimpy shoes and little frocks are my daily costume. i'll be back in the south of france soon and i look forward to seeing (and buying) the new 2012 french sandal ware.

friday field trip (from the sketch book).

september 2008
mount holly, vermont

we go to vermont every summer for 2-4 weeks. there, we really connect to nature and the earth, leaving behind busy long-hour days at our offices. when you are far away from your reality and completely surrounded by the most beautiful landscape, it is easy to focus on the small things in life, such as the amazing mushrooms that grow wild all around us. i look forward to vermont all year long.

say "CHEESE" . . .

"board." i am a lover a cheese (the stinkier, the better). my cheeseboard has been the perfect platform for these said cheeses. there are rubber bumpers on the bottom that make the board stay put and you can hang it on the wall as "art" when not in use !

you can get one here.

how do you like your eggs ?

there is a FREE GIVEAWAY on my facebook page.

play to win these four nest eggs.

enter HERE.

it's not whether you win or lose . . .

. . . but how many treats you get for playing the game. wilma and her friend eagerly awaited the final tally and she was actually relieved that she did NOT win the cutest bay area dog contest. TOO much responsibility + being in the top 7 out of 500 dogs was good enough, she said. now she just wants to get back to her regular DOG LIFE.

thank you everyone for the votes and the moral support.

little soldiers.

an army of 100 handmade porcelain mini cups are marching over to recchiuti chocolate confections for a special mother's day gift box. as much as i am trying to steer away from production work, there is something satisfyingly methodical about making 100 of the same thing. plus, i couldn't resist working with jacky and michael recchiuti. sorry if you are one of the wholesale or production orders out there that i've had to turn down, but this one was too sweet to pass up.

this is the B in my alphabet series. it was done with charcoal, pastels, and water color. i'm trying to bring a little more color in my life, though for me, "color" means vague, muddy and subtle.

happy saint patrick's day.

the claddagh symbol has such beautiful and poignant meaning behind it. plus i love the look of this symbol, as it includes some of my favorite icons. i think it is the perfect symbol for a wedding. i designed this ring bearer dish with that in mind.

may the luck of the irish be with you on your day.

march 8, 2012
emeryville, ca

my friend, jessie, and i have started a painting salon (with just the 2 of us as members). we meet every wednesday morning, lock ourselves in her studio with a LOT of tea or coffee, blast the music, and then draw, paint, charcoal, pastel, ink, oil, scratch, smear, etc . . . with reckless abandonment.

one of the assignments we gave ourselves was to pick an object and to draw it every single day for 3 months. i chose this antique key from france as my object. it was a completely random choice, as my office is loaded with objects. but now that i think about it, it seems the perfect choice, plus it has a deeper significance. hopefully this will be the key that unlocks my inner-creativity. there ARE no accidents in life, right ?

a good egg.

EVERY morning, my husband leaves me the perfect cup of tea on my bedside table (this is no easy feat . . . 2 tea bags steeped for 4 minutes, a cup of non-fat powdered milk, a dash of organic grade B maple syrup all elegantly whisked and concocted in a mason jar or pint glass and served to me piping hot). and in his quest to get me to eat food before 2 pm, he will sometimes leave me a morsel of food or a smoothie. today he left these soft boiled eggs. i thought the colors and the composition were ever so photo-worthy. isn't he a good egg ?

july 2004
stockholm, sweden.

i fell in love with stockholm while i was in sweden, attending the wedding of my friend lotta jansdotter. we stayed at this fabulous hotel called RIVAL. and right across the street was a beautiful cemetery. i find that most cemeteries tend to verge on the scary and creepy side, but this one was quite sweet and picturesque, with rows and rows of beautiful organic shaped and colorfully muted tombstones. stockholm is now one of my all time favorite cities. it is so lovely and inspiring and full of impeccable design as far as the eye can see.
