"Taking inspiration from Dutch Vanitas paintings, these photographs incorporate personal artifacts within the traditional construct of still life. Pairing objects that belonged to my grandmother with my own possessions speaks to the concept of memory, familial legacy and the passage of time."

There's definitely some perks to working for a fashion company. Especially when you're surrounded by things of this nature.
I also enjoy conversations with coworkers like this:
Me: I think that space would look better if it were open
Katie: But then you wouldn’t have any place to put gnomes
Me: We’re putting gnomes up there?

This Decor Maison ad campaign shows a very civilized way to enjoy the outdoors. Now that's my kind of camping! I look forward to enjoying the regular tent variety camping next weekend. This would be a great time of year if it would just stop raining!

September has been a big month for birthdays at my office. There's been a lot of cakes to imbibe, but I think my favorite of the season has been the Momofuko birthday cake. I'll start thinking about working it all off in October. For now I'll just wear stretchy pants.

My beach vacation this summer was spent on Cape Cod. I've gone there almost every summer for my whole life, and now I get to share my childhood favorites with my husband. Must dos are Mayflower Beach, the Sundae School, Kream n Kone, the Strawberry Patch and the Cape Cod Natural History Museum. This year I tried something new. We rented bikes and went for a 22 mile ride! I hadn't been on a bike in 20 years and it was a little freaky. I was whooped in the end, but it was a beautiful ride. Thanks for another wonderful trip, Cape Cod!

This is the explanation I get when I ask my Southern husband to explain why people have large collections of knives that they keep in a safe and never use. I don't quite get it, but I think this knife is actually quite nice. I'd at least display it prominently even if I never used it.

Last week I walked passed the Bergdorf window display and had to stop to take a closer look at the miu miu dresses. The textiles are stunning. Embroidered birds, dandelions, lily of the valley and daisies grace the fall collection. I'm so happy fall fashion is here!
