Post image for pickin’ out photos…

whenever the images are ready for an upcoming catalog, our team lines them up in the hallway for everyone to look at. we pick our favorite and mark it with a post it note, and this helps them decide which images to use and which one goes on the cover. it’s really fun…these photos are for our march catalog, and they look great!

Post image for musical ornaments

if i had a christmas tree, these are the kind of ornaments i’d put on it. i saw these on pitchfork and I think they’re so cool – they’re recycled christmas tree ornaments made by the glass casters union in oregon, and proceeds from the sale of the ornaments go towards helping homeless and low-income families in oregon. this year’s designs include modest mouse, blizen trapper and the decemberists (shown above). i also like some of the ones they’ve done in previous years:

Post image for on the road: part two

“what is that feeling when you’re driving away from people and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing? – it’s the too-huge world vaulting us, and it’s good-by.  but we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies.”

what did you all think of part two of on the road? this section of the book finds sal (kerouac) back on the east coast settling in to a quiet contentedness with his girl and school and family, when a surprise visit from dean takes him on another wild cross-country journey.  this trip’s scenery, traveling in dean’s car along with his girl Marylou and their friend ed dunkel, reminds me of my own road trip as they take the southern route across the country.  they stop in new orleans to visit old bull lee (in reality, william s. burroughs), a heroin addict who brings out the madness of the intimate group.  after new orleans, they continue moving on through texas, new mexico, arizona, and then into san francisco via the oakland bay bridge.  this portion of the book is more about their journey on the road than what happens when they get there…which ends up not being much, as sal finds himself broke and homeless, wandering the streets in search of something he never finds.  part two ends with him returning back east, unsure of whether or not he’ll ever see dean again.  why do you think he went on this trip? and why do you think it ends on such a melancholy note?

have any of you ever taken a road trip? where did you start and where did you end up?

Post image for firefly literacy fund

some friends of mine are involved in a nonprofit organization called the firefly literacy fund that I think is really cool…it’s all about bridging the opportunity gap in the city of philadelphia by working with families, teachers, schools and shelters.  they have donated hundreds of books to elementary school students and this past october they worked really hard on turning the library at the southwark elementary school into a relaxing and inviting space where kids would want to spend time…and they did a great job, as you can see in the above images. they’re having an event this wednesday to raise money and awareness for this important cause…click here for details, and check out their website fireflyfund.org!

are any of you involved in good causes? what charities are you most passionate about?

Post image for a fairytale wedding

these wedding photos are absolutely gorgeous…the beautiful bride, who works in our new york showroom, was kind enough to share them for the blog.  the wedding took place at the hotel dupont in wilmington, delaware, and the outdoor portraits below were taken at the nearby gibraltar gardens.  looks like the epitome of a fairytale wedding to me…that dress is incredible!

**those of you wondering who designed the dress…monique lhuillier!

about_aboutme.jpg

i love to draw! so luckily i am supporting myself as an illustrator…i recently moved from my hometown in denmark to the US to follow my dreams and basically taking charge of my time here on mother earth! apart from loving to draw i possess a strong fascination with birds, insects (not spiders!) and anything floral! colors, baking, rye bread, blowing bubbles and flying kites, green tea, old fashion mailbox letters, honey, and waking up from a good night’s sleep with the sunbeams playing on my eyelids. the smell of tuberoses and bare feet in green grass. that’s me!

you can read more about mia and check out her work on her website.
