something lovely…spotted at vogue

I don't often com­ment on haute cou­ture, but this is too lovely to pass by. I'm not feel­ing the love for this as a dress, but wouldn't it be a gor­geous drap­ery? Dress­maker details applied to home inte­ri­ors — tres chic!

Something lovely…spotted in Litchfield ct

In a rare break from the crazy win­ter snows, I spent a fun lunch and shop­ping ven­ture on Mon­day with my friend and fel­low designer Jane Sper­off. She urged me to check out these lit­tle gems — aren't they great?

sweet cou­ple

Each one is a unique purse, made from the front and back cov­ers of an old book. The inside fea­tures dif­fer­ent fab­rics, and the han­dles are all indi­vid­ual as well. Bib­lio­phile that I am, I suf­fered a pang at the thought of destroy­ing old books. But let's face the truth, there are surely mil­lions of unloved, unwanted old books out there, so cheers to B. Bell Designs for giv­ing them a new life. She is a 19 year old col­lege stu­dent who makes these to pay for her school­ing. How great is that?

delight­ful colors

every one is unique

Check into her Etsy shop or visit Litch­field to pick up one of these unique excit­ing lit­tle bags.
