This weekend we visited Pilar and her family on Fire Island, and Clara brought with her a whole bag of Tattly tattoos. (She had come to my office the day before and got a whole lot of them from an editor who had been working with the Tattly creator on a project.) When the tattoos […]


mystic knotworks

Our friend Hannah was wearing this wide sailor bracelet a couple of weeks ago, and we (Pilar and I) decided that we wanted to get the same ones, joking that it would be our “friendship bracelet”. Now all of our friends (and my daughter) want the same one. I think the reason why it really […]

I was in one of the most elegant antique stores I’ve ever been in, owned by the chicest French woman. There were lit scented candles (with no label on them) throughout the store, and it smelled amazing. I saw a boxed candle from Cire Truedon, which I know are outrageously priced, so I asked her […]

The collection includes a bird watching owl; bike riding fox; bear who loves grilled cheese […]

My friend Gina gave my son this great present for his birthday–Lauri Toys Peel and Stick by Numbers Wild Animals. The simple but satisfying mosaics are made out of squishy sticker tiles. It kept my 7-year-old occupied for hours and you end up with a little work of art they are really proud of. The […]

Now’s the time to be dropping the hint for a perfect Mother’s Day gift: The Loveprint Necklace designed by Camille Cesari turns your children’s fingerprints into charms. The necklace takes at least a couple weeks. The designer sends you a wax fingerprinting kit, which serves as a mold for the charms. You take the fingerprint […]
