Impressionen {new design}

I was so pleased today to see that one of my favorite catalogs in Germany has expanded to include an online store. They’ve always had a website, but ordering was a bit hard as you usually had to call things in. I’m sure all of the Germans reading this will be happy to see the new Impressionen site and that they have all kinds of lovely things up for Fall.

I like how they show all their products in mood board style, then you just click on what you like to learn more about that particular item. I think the visual presentation is lovely.

The Cocktail

I wrote about the illustrator of this lovely little book called The Cocktail over at Real Simple yesterday (link here). Her name is Kat Macleod and she has a few pillowcases and a pretty handkerchief for sale at Third Drawer Down right now.

I must confess, I purchased the book soley for the illustrations… Although the boozy concoctions look truly delicious. Some of the illustrations are so nice that I’m almost tempted to remove and frame them. But then there is this whole uncomfortable feeling I have about destroying a perfectly lovely book… So for now I will display the book on a shelf in my kitchen.
