Another capture from my Sunday walkabout...this is next to the lighthouse. Turn on sound. I go there for the sound of it, as much as anything else.

A perfectly grey November day. I love it when nobody’s there, and I have the lighthouse to myself. Sometimes I think about how I would decorate it if I lived there. It’s so charmingly square.

Very chunky luxe memo pads with gold embossed initial. About 8x7 inches with optional clear lucite desk tray. Paper so good that a Sharpie pen will not bleed through.

Don't want your initial? We also have them with a golden bee wearing a crown.🐝

Now in shop. Curbside service available, of course

Just arrived from Paris. Love this. A petite cup perfect for tea or after dinner coffee. The script is from John Derian’s archives—probably a 19th century letter. So lovely.

Just arrived from Paris. Perfection at 13 inches tall. This collaboration between John Derian and Astier de Villatte steals my heart. You know a vase is good when it looks fabulous empty OR full. Hurry—I only have two.😉

Marie is in the house—Antoinette, that is! Astier de Villatte creates a charming incense burner like no one else. She’s also pretty lovely as a little trinket/jewelry dish.

This starburst neckpiece is magical when worn. Perfectly faceted aquamarine and sweet pearls come together in an affordable neckpiece that can be worn more often than you imagine. About 3.5 inches, side to side.
Aquamarines are said to be calming, soothing, inspiring trust and letting go.

By Namiko Abloom of Seattle. Available in the shop but easy to ship.
