gone travelin'

This Thanksgiving so far - I've been to San Francisco, Sacramento, Denver & Nevada City - and am heading to West Palm Beach, FL tomorrow.  Thankful for warm homes to welcome me in each town. 



Just discovered lemlem, started by Ethiopian supermodel Liya Kebede to provide employment to skilled weavers in her country.  Beautiful pieces for a beautiful cause.


Lap dog

Best part of the day.

Selby in Japan

Adorable home, cutest family ever!  From the Selby.

Creatures of Comfort: LA Fall

Fall comes whether you're ready for it or not, apparently.  These shoes, that sweater & those shades for the ever-shining LA sun would be welcome additions to my tiny fall wardrobe.


A & D Museum: Eames

Charles and Ray Eames were masters of seeing 'the uncommon beauty in common things'.  A new exhibition called Eames Words at the Architecture & Design Museum of LA displays their creative process, focusing more on their ideas than their design outcomes.  I love the simple pleasures in life and can't wait to check out that which they considered beautiful.


Polka Dots

A recent fave from The Sartorialist - wonderfully reminiscent of Katharine Hepburn's amazing polka dot jumper I blogged about a while ago. 



Elke Kramer's jewelry collection Second Nature influenced by Ernst Haeckel's studies of plant cells.


Looking forward to this:

Finn Juhl

A look at architect/furniture designer Finn Juhl's home in Ordrup, Denmark, which is now a museum.  The hearth is my favorite, it totally makes the living room so inviting.  And that painting of the woman in the yellow blouse, oh my.  More photos here.
