Treasures from Maison et Object January 2012

Perhaps the best trade show I have ever attended is Maison et Objet (which is currently underway in Paris).  There is just so many exciting new things to see there and I always wish I could make the trip.  So with much excitement I just read a round-up post over at Apartment Therapy by Ellie Tennent about the current show and some of her favorite picks.

‘Bougies Russes’ candle holders designed by Stephan Lanez.

Do you need a little break from Chelsea coverage? (I do). I picked my first from-the-garden bouquet yesterday.  It is a pretty mix of peonies, salvia, daisies, carnations, roses and spirea.  It reminded me of this cake…something I am hoping to recreate from my own garden — just as soon as the raspberries, blueberries, and currants…

The Rake Roundup – 13 Rakes for Every Purpose

The leaves are turning and I am all overwhelmed with the annual display of beauty here in the leaf peeping capitol…(New England) I thought I might make a small little series of fall inspired posts related to all things autumnal and leaf peeping-ish over the next week of so (or until the last of the…
