Nantucket Playing Cards

There’s no denying what a special place Nantucket is to many. I could not have been more thrilled when Peep’s Paper Products unveiled their latest custom playing card collection featuring my favorite little island. The deck features 16 watercolor images of some of Nantucket’s most special spots…think: Steps Beach, Brant Point and Bartlett’s Farm to name a few. Start your Christmas shopping early (and if you really want to WOW someone special, be sure to check out the Nantucket deck packaged in a hand-made wood box covered in book cloth here)!

I especially love this behind-the-scenes glimpse into LouLou’s beautiful creation!





Crisp Sails

I picked up this candle by Mer-Sea & Co at Sconset Bookstore Wines in Nantucket and can’t recommend it enough. The candle, Crisp Sails (their signature water scent), also comes with an agate coaster making it the perfect gift.

Bloom Nation

I’m late to the game on this one. A colleague recently introduced me to Bloom Nation, a trusted community marketplace for people to list, discover, and send unique bouquets handcrafted by local florists across the country. Just enter the zip code of your lucky recipient and you’ll see a curated list of florists in the area. I came across this florist in SF that I will most definitely order from soon (how beautiful are those blooms below?).




Peep’s Paper Products x Goop

So proud of my dear friend Lou and her recent collaboration with Goop. The hand-illustrated Lover’s Card Set makes the perfect gift (even post Valentine’s Day!).


Be sure to check out her custom options as well. Brides-to-be, take note…her custom playing cards would make the perfect addition to any welcome bag.

Stephanie Fishwick

While flipping through the March issue of House Beautiful, I came across custom crest creator, Stephanie Fishwick, and am dying for a custom crest rubber-and-wood stamp. So many amazing options to help spruce up your stationary collection. Brides-to-be: take note of her amazing wedding invitations (see below!).

“Stephanie Fishwick was my best-kept secret but her work is too good not to share. The invitation speaks to the tone of the evening and is the first detail of your wedding a guest will see. Stephanie can find a way to incorporate any unique and special images into a collage like invitation. I would imagine that this heraldic crest could follow a couple and find a way to embroider the pattern onto her bed linens or hand towels later in life.”

Fewer, Better

If you live in Chicago, NYC or SF it’s not too late to pick up one of my favorite gifts to give: the Cuyana leather travel case set. They offer live monogramming in-store (takes about 15 minutes). I’m a huge fan of the pebbled leather cases in stone, ecru, olive and blush.




Each of our stores combines the service and instant gratification of a full store
with the intimacy and personalization of an atelier.
