Maurice Sendak

by admin | May 07, 2012

“Once a little boy sent me a charming card with a little drawing on it. I loved it. I answer all my children’s letters — sometimes very hastily — but this one I lingered over. I sent him a card and I drew a picture of a Wild Thing on it. I wrote, “Dear Jim: I loved your card.” Then I got a letter back from his mother and she said, “Jim loved your card so much he ate it.” That to me was one of the highest compliments I’ve ever received. He didn’t care that it was an original Maurice Sendak drawing or anything. He saw it, he loved it, he ate it.”

Maurice Sendak , we love you so! xxxxx

Isabel Toledo's new book

by admin | March 12, 2012

About a year ago we wrote this post about our favorite fashion couple, Isabel and Ruben Toledo, swoon and sigh!

Well, the lovely Ms. Toledo (with illustrations by husband Ruben)  has just released a memoir:

'Roots of Style; weaving together life, love and fashion', which looks beautifully moving and inspired -  particularly the underlying themes of  success coming in many wonderful guises and that creative 'fermentation' is a really important process to be savoured and enjoyed! :)

Available after April 1st at your local book shop, can't wait!
