I'm technically taking a few months "off" for maternity leave, but now that Louise is five weeks old, and I'm sloooooowly coming out of the newborn daze (I said slowly! with lots of o's!), I can't help think about what's next for L&H. It looks like our first installment for 2013 will come this spring with summery offerings - which are always my favorite. Any animal or item from the beach or sea will always hold a special place in my heart, so I'm excited to make summer a big focus & already have lots of ideas. And speaking of summery things, a friend recently told me about this beautiful ceramic Buoy Bowl by Shoham Arad. I love and am inspired by the simplicity & the lightheartedness of it. It's happy and just perfect.
