have you seen our new november catalog? it’s so pretty and full of light…
the inspiration behind this catalog, with the holidays quickly approaching, was the play of light and color in the images. i like it because instead of feeling dark and cold like a lot of holiday stuff, it feels very warm and soft.
to get these cool effects they strung christmas lights in front of the camera…something i might have to try.
you can view the entire catalog here.
i love the new gateway image on our website for fall florals…so pretty.
created by our very talented graphic designers :)

if you’re a fan of jack kerouac, a new documentary came out today called one fast move or i’m gone, which focuses on the phase of kerouac’s life chronicled in the novel big sur. one of my favorite jack kerouac books, it is set mostly in a cabin owned by lawrence ferlinghetti in the scenic section of the northern california coast called big sur. kerouac stayed in the cabin for several weeks as he struggled with alcoholism and depression after publishing his famous novel on the road. the documentary tells the stories behind big sur through voice-overs paired with high-def imagery and interviews with people who knew kerouac or were influenced by his work, including ferlinghetti, tom waits and patti smith.
bixby bridge at big sur, which kerouac wrote about in the novel. i was lucky enough to go there and it’s incredible.
