So I just arrived back into town, and when we got off the plane in L.A it was a little cool and overcast. This was such a nice transition after the hot desert. It was feeling a bit like fall – which many of us might agree – is the best season in the entire universe! I started feeling that yearning for it. Then I walked into the store and saw that we just got in these stunning new sheets of wrap in from Elum – and that was it for me.

Fall is on!

5 things autumn makes me want to do right now:

  1. sit outside and write letters to people that I miss
  2. find leaves to be near
  3. spend time on creative photography
  4. clean out all of my drawers
  5. bake for our neighbors

The reality is, it will probably end up being like 85 out today, and I have two weeks worth of emails to tackle, but now that fall is in my head, it is the start of a new season.

I have like 2 seconds to write this, but our stay at the Pallazo has been a great experience so far. Most noteworthy has been the staff. How is it that everyone is so completely friendly and in a good mood in one hotel in Vegas? This alone has made the stay here enjoyable, but I will admit that the visuals have been a perk also (as well as the Barney’s) Ha! good times in Vegas. I found an AMAZING LINE for neighborhood. So new – there are no pictures yet. I will scavenge some and post very soon.

I will be in Vegas for the week shopping the apparel shows for Neighborhood.

Urbanic is one of the sponsers of the Project Tradeshow this year so it should be pretty fun, (and hot!)

So I am finally back from NYC, and I have to say, we had a really great trip. Not only did we get an eyeful of lots of great design at the gift show, but the city itself always makes my heart pound. Highlights for me include, the random Mirachi band that started playing (in full garb) on the subway at 8:30 in the morning, realizing that I was walking right next to Johnathan Adler down an aisle at the Javits, barbecuing with some good friends on their rooftop in Brooklyn, and eating cherry water ice with my sisters in South Philly. I love the city and miss living on the east coast, but glad to be able to go back as often as I do. Every time i get back to L.A I feel a little homesick, so I gathered some paper-ey treasures i am loving right now that capture the spirit of the metropolis.

I will be highlighting finds from the show in the next week or so, but am off again for another trip in the morning.

This morning I picked a winner for the First Official Parcel Post Giveaway . I wrote each post number down on a piece of paper, folded them up, put them in a basket and picked one.
So the winning number is ….

#45 posted by Meredith that never wins anything- finally won something!

I have to say this was really fun for me – and I kept wishing everyone could win. This made me decide I will be doing many more giveaways very soon, so stay tuned for that. I am still on the eastcoast but flying back today with so much to report from nyc.

Until then have a great weekend. ( summer is almost over )
