I’m back from California a bit jet lagged and with a little cold. It feels good to be home! We had a really nice trip to San Francisco followed by Palm Springs for my brother-in-law’s wedding. The wedding was really gorgeous and definitely brought out the romantic in me. It seems hard to believe that November is almost here! I hope you’re enjoying this lovely fall weather. Here are a few must read links from the past week or so:
Sharon Radisch featured Duo NY on her blog…and it reminded me how much I love that shop.
Great idea for the studio.
Cookies Joanna Goddard recommends…they look SO good.
Just 9 Mondays left this month…crazy!

Loved this post on picking out a rug.
The interviews my sister has been posting lately are so good, and the latest with Stacy Smallwood of Hampden Clothing didn’t disappoint.
I gave some advice over on the B Bar this week.
We’re thrilled to introduce a candle collaboration with Riles & Co! We worked together to create this custom scent of Cedarwood and Lavender.
Warm and cozy, Cedarwood and Lavender combines soft soothing lavender and delicate geranium with notes of cedar, teak, oak and mahogany to create a relaxing yet robust scent perfect for the cooler months. Hand-poured in small batches in apothecary-style jars, this candle is all-natural and uses 100% domestically-grown soy and only the highest quality, phthalate-free fragrance oils and lead-free cotton wicks. No additives or chemicals added. The 9 oz. candle will burn for 50 – 60 hours.
Each candle comes with a hand dip-dyed cotton bag which makes it the perfectly packaged for gift giving, and the pouch can be reused of course!
Cristina Toff is the talented woman behind Riles & Co. All of the candles are hand-poured in the East Village in NYC. My sister actually introduced us as she was already a fan of the line. Cristina is so sweet and takes so much care in her process which is one of the reasons I wanted to work with her.
Learn more about her process after the jump! (more…)
