Timeless ~ Christine

feather-broochIt’s funny how the generations roll over on each other.  There seems to be this timeless lock, inexplicable in its emotional impact, but clarified by the familial items that anchor our memories. I have been thinking a lot about my mother since my grandson was born.  She was such a wonderful grandmother: we used to call her Mary Poppins.

feather pens from Pylones on Lingerie Briefs

One of my all-time favorite stores is Pylones, a brand I first discovered in Paris eons ago when I happened into this shop exploding with color, fun ideas and lots of originality.  My first purchase was feather pens for everyone I could think of.  Now this iconic gift shop is in NYC and I pass it all the time traveling through Grand Central Station.  It’s Years later, but the pens are still there, even as … Read More


Recently, my husband and I took a leap and built a home in Mexico, which, as you can imagine, needed to be furnished. We have an understanding about communal purchases: he has very little say regarding décor issues, and lots of input on anything technical.  I am all about comfort and style.  He analyzes every stitch expecting maximum structural integrity at the best possible price.

Munki Munki Reversible Hooded Terry Robe and matching Chemise on Lingerie BriefsI grew up in a religiously bi-partisan home.  My mother made sure that we had all the necessary exposure to our Jewish heritage but there were a few seasonal holidays she commandeered for the pure joy of a child’s vision.  I remember spring primarily for the neighborhood Easter Egg Hunt she organized and the Blue-Robe-Hood-from Munki Munki on Lingerie Briefselaborate egg dying preparation that it precipitated. There was always one egg, created personally by my mom, that when discovered, merited … Read More

State of Lace ~ Arianne

Lace has informed my perspective for as long as I can remember.  For me, it is an artistic and poetic expression.   I see it in so many aspects of everyday life; the spokes of a bicycle wheel, the bare branches of a tree etched against a winter sky, an intricately woven wrought iron fence, lingering lines left on frozen ice from a skater’s blades, shadows flickering in candlelight across a naked body.  The possible interpretations … Read More
