We are pretty astounded at the intricacy of Chanel’s recent Spring-Summer 2015 Haute Couture show at the Grand Palais in Paris.

I think Pia Jane Bijkerk is one incredibly talented lady.  Her styling, books, and kitchen adventures having me swooning. Perhaps most inspiring, is her lovely little houseboat in Amsterdam.  The ‘petit batuea vert’ was featured a few years back in Anthology Magazine.  I still look back at this spread when I want to dream a […]

I have my eye on a few things at the moment and so to quell the urge to go on a serious shopping spree I thought why not share them with others.  I am loving this artisan apron made from waxed canvas and leather.  Think how hardcore we would look working on flowers in these! […]
