Couldn't sleep one night recently so was chatting to my sister who lives in London at 2:30. She mentions that she just got her new copy of Living etc and starts looking at it telling me that she would really love to be paging through a magazine one day and just come across one of my pillows in a house. Ten seconds later she is squealing and hyper ventilating:) At first I thought she was pulling my leg. But nope -- one of my Gloria pillows in black and white is in this wonderful, color-filled Long Island home that features the handiwork of the very talented and exciting interior designer, Ghislaine Vinas.

Finally shipped off all the lampshade orders I got at the New York Gift Show. Was totally taken by surprise by how well they were received and totally unprepared. So what felt like a gazillion butterflies later and lots of late nights, they are all on their way to their new homes.
Changed up the store this week. Having grown up in South Africa without Halloween, I don't totally get it and have never done any Halloween decorating before. So am thrilled with the mantel in the store. Probably more Goth chic than Halloween but love the old saws I picked up in a flea market alongside Jonathan Adler's snakes, knitware vases from Alyssa Ettinger, a cool Michelle Caplan portrait and loads of black feather roses!
