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!

Good news! Our friend Sandra is having a baby girl next month so you know what that means for me – a valid excuse to shop at darling baby boutiques (grin)! My favorite store in Hannover for the kiddies is Von Klein Auf, it’s absolutely the sweetest shop, I could spend hours looking through everything. Most of the products are from Germany, Denmark, Sweden, and the Netherlands – like Anne-Claire Petit.
If you’ve not heard of her collection before, Anne-Claire Petit studied industrial design and started her career as a designer for Esprit, where she spent four years until deciding it was time to move forward and develop her own brand, Anne-Claire Petit. Her company has been around now for over ten years, it’s a colorful handmade line of children, home, and pet accessories. You can find her products all over the world.
The red and white crochet mushroom bank (above) is a personal favorite of mine, I’m always looking for a spot to toss my change. For the locals, you can find many items from her collection at Von Klein Auf located at Edenstrasse 42 near Lister Platz.
