Hurricane Evac

Hindsight is 20/20. We fled Brooklyn late Friday, shivering with memories of last fall's tornado when the trees looked & sounded like they would crash through the windows. Turns out, nothing happened here & were surrounded by heavy winds, failing power & falling trees up north. The silver lining was Griffin getting to spend time with his Farmor (grandmother in Swedish) and Nonno (grandfather in Italian). We hunkered down, lit candles, played cards, and baked cookies. And thankfully, returned to a dry home. Hope your hurricane experience was as mild as ours.

Paper Swatches

Finally working on a project I've been thinking about for over a year. Excited to share soon. Stay tuned.


I could look at this happy guy all day.

Beach Baby

Sheesh. I didn't mean to be gone so long. But I enjoyed my unplugged vacation too much & have been trying to adjust ever since returning. Here are a LOT! of photos of Griffin from our two weeks at the Jersey Shore, where he dug & ate sand, played dress-up with cousins, hung out in diapers & sun shirts, laid back in a floaty, took magnets off the fridge, chewed shovels, and was a good sport when we put sunglasses on him indoors. Ah, Summer at the beach, we miss you already.

Hockenheimer Mag & Newspaper Stool

I'm posting from my family's beach house, where we've been hauling out a ton of old furniture & knick knacks that have been idling here for the past 15 years or so. It's never easy getting rid of things, but I always feel so much better afterwards. It's the same feeling when I clear away my cluttery desk. I have a clear head. I feel lighter. Now that we're clearer & lighter, we're looking for a few new things to fill the holes. This clever stool caught my eye as a great combo of old & new. Perfect for hoarding those mags you don't want to toss (Domino!) and a great excuse not to.
