Night and day...

 are the one.

Through the front window at night.  Love that tin ceiling!

 A slice of our new additions and favorite things.  From Fog Linen Work,  adorable tunics and contrasting (or matching) scarves, all in sublime Lithuanian linen.  Chic tote in black linen and leather, also from Fog.  Propped in my antique pony skin director's chair is "3191:Evenings", a new photographic collaboration by Maria Alexandra Vettese and Stephanie Congdon Barnes. This is the companion to their 2008 book from Princeton Architectural Press, "A Year of Mornings: 3191 Miles Apart".  (for those of you who aren't familiar, 3191 is the number of miles between Portland, Maine and Portland, Oregon.)   We have signed copies!   And just visible in the photo....

...gorgeous RODIN olio lusso for face and body.  Beautiful, glowy skin, an intoxicating scent, elegant packaging---perfect, streamlined luxury.  The golden box in the foreground is one of the most impressive press packages I've seen.  Samples sit on an antique French "Theatre Guignol" plate.  One way to tell just how honored I am to be carrying RODIN olio lusso, is that it's displayed on my pride-and-joy: the table handmade by my great-grandfather from five different hardwoods.
