I’m having the time of my life here in Germany, my batteries are fully charged and I’m ready to return home to New Hampshire in a few weeks to jump into some exciting new projects for decor8 and the new year! I’ll share those ideas soon, but for now here’s a glimpse at life here in Germany since many have asked what it looks like in the hood where we’re staying. Here’s a glimpse.

If you’re a fan of John Robshaw and his sumptuous array of exotic prints and patterns, you’ll want to shop his brand new e-commerce website. I was thrilled when I heard about this from Allyson who works for John down in New York (thanks Allyson!).
This is such a wonderful project, one that runs deep with passion for Brooklyn photographer Jennifer Causey who decided to self publish (via Blurb) a collection of her favorite breakfast photos in her own book titled Simply Breakfast. It looks good enough to eat. :)
For $33 it would make the best present for a foodie friend, don’t you think? I respect that she took the alternate route in publishing and did it herself, it’s so empowering to do good work without the big guys sometimes. Based on that fact, coupled with the beauty of her work, I encourage you to support Jennifer by either spreading the word about this on your own blog or purchasing a copy (or both!).

Michele Foley wrote to me from CHOW.com, an editorial food lifestyle site, to let me know that there’s a great story up on their site relating to centerpiece design. When I read that fellow blogger Victoria took part, I had to post about it because her table is bright and fun and a good example of using what you have in your home to create a table that shines.
The article also features the work of the talented Sally from Shim + Sons and the work of Rose + Radish, a lovely shop based in San Francisco, CA and online. For the complete article and more images, click here.
Thank you Michele for the tip, and a huge congrats to Victoria and the other ladies for the feature, great work!
