I was flipping through the channels the other night and there was a feature on this bakery, Tribeca Treats. Rachel Thebault opened her business after being in the banking world for many years. I was taken with her salt and pepper chocolate and YES, she ships! I think I'll be ordering some tasty treats for some of my friends for the holidays since the shop never allows me out.

I absolutely love this children's clothing line. Dagmar Daley is a San Francisco designer that has created these beautiful frocks for boys and girls from 18 months to 8 years old. Dagmar, with a background in architecture, creates clean lines with a throwback to the past. The chemises are so adorable and practical for an extra layer of flannel to keep your little one warm under a dress. I'm delighted we will be carrying this line soon at House & Life.

I was delighted that my Cottage Living came through my mail slot on this rainy night. Although "The Office Convention" here in Scranton ( yes, that Scranton) is going on down the Hill from me, my 17 month old Georgia has other plans for me. So I was happy to get some excitement from the article on Cottage Living's former decorating editor Fran Keenan's adorable cottage in Birmingham Alabama. I love her play on patterns and cozy approach. I just love her little girl's room with the giant, multicolor letters. I used that same giant houndstooth for a client's roman shades, so chic!
