Balancelle Chair by Fermob

When I travel, I love to shop, and while I recognize that some of my ‘discoveries’ are as ubiquitous in that place as pottery Barn is in the US, it doesn’t matter to me because I know when I get my treasures home it will be unique in my own corner of the world and I will always have a memory of where it came from and the joy of discovering it.

A Tale of Improving Weather, Gardening and Anaphylactic Shock

The snow is piling up (over the windows at this point) and my cabin fever is turning into a strange and crazy thing. I think I might be developing photokeratitis. We’ve run out of firewood and the oversized roof-cicles are making me feel like I live in a cage. So it is no wonder that…

A Studio ‘g’ Holiday Shopping List

My wife asked me as we drove with our four kids from Maine to North Carolina, what I would like for Christmas.
