Meet Alissa, one of our Assistant Wovens Designers! I wandered over to her desk today, and was thoroughly entertained by all the cool stuff she has there!
The little matchbox with the “3″ on it says “Fosforus” across the top. I don’t know why, but I think that is neat! :)
One the left of the nail polishes is a little tiny cake! It’s so cute! It was a birthday gift to Alissa from another of our Wovens girls, Pattra! Alissa also really loves the envelope in the back because it was made for her by her boyfriend.
Do you see the cute little birdies sitting along the top edge of her desk?! So cute!!
The woodcarving was made by Alissa and her boyfriend.
These are crazy computer speakers! I love them! They were a gift from her mother.
You might recognize the picture in the middle from our Halloween video- it’s Alissa and her little brother dressed up for Halloween!
Hooray! Thanks for sharing Alissa!
It’s a very rainy day here today, and it’s got me wanting these umbrellas extra-much! They are so fun and cute!
On this past Friday, one of our accessories designers showed off her Halloween costume for our viewing pleasure, and turned briefly into a robot!
The robot waited for a turn at the color copier, like so many of us do…
It also needed to approve some fabric swatches.
Home-made costumes are the best!
I love the looks of this book shop in a greenhouse in the garden at The Wapping Project, a hydraulic power station that’s been converted to a contemporary art space and restaurant.
The architect writes:
“As an only child I lived in my books and still have every one of them. I also ran a shop in a dis-used hen house at the bottom of our ramshackle back yard where I sold jars of soapy water to myself and imagined who I would be” smiles Wright. “Now I’ve made a tiny glass bookshop with a coal fire, selling the most beautiful books, where everyone can browse and imagine who they might become, while others watch them through the glass and imagine who they are.”

As many of you may already know, the Philadelphia Phillies baseball team has gone to the World Series! They have now won four games, and need only one more win to be the World Series champions! Tonight, they play at home here in Philadelphia, and tonight could be the night! Excitement is at a fever pitch, and everyone around the home office has been showing off their Phillies spirit! They all look really cute too!
Yes, that is her ticket to the game tonight! She is one lucky girl!
Go Phightin’ Phils!

The New York Times published an article this week called “The Fashion Report of 1920” about the current popularity of classic, utilitarian clothes, like the Hunter wellie.
