    were it not for the chartreuse

    We are not yet in the stretch of summer where the cool dark of a corpse by the side of a pond laden with lily pads feels like the right place to be, but we are always in the days of dresses in colors like cold scoops of ice cream sidled up next to black as night, white as a lamb shifts.

    A swan's messy throne.

    Learning about swans today for so many new swan things, and my favorite bit thus far: swans are notoriously messy nest builders.

    Pierre climbed out of bed

    I can't stop listening to Maira Kalman interviews. How does that relate to Pierre, by Elizabeth Peyton? New York? Observing? Maira's mother never asked why, or what, they thought of art. Just look, she said!

    THE BIG CUTE

    Our beloved Mignon Memory Ring has a new cousin! So many of you asked for our Mignon Memory Ring in full sizes and we listened. The new Grand Mignon has slightly different dimensions than the original for durability in a full finger size, but she retains the smooth, shiny surface and a sleek low dome. Comes in rose and yellow gold, of course!

    Shop all our mignons here.

  7. Lounging under a willow tree sounds nice to me.

    LOUNGING UNDER A WILLOW TREE SOUNDS NICE TO ME

    Now and then, I spend time thinking about how to turn more of life into the feeling of a long day reading at the beach. Placid, sun-baked, mind coursing with the syncopation of a perfect sentence, or paragraph, the horizon wobbling against the sea.

    Pictured here: another sort of day to imagine, birds and bugs warbling, and frogs belching under lily pads.

  10. Ayako

    Ayako

    Calling Ayako a pastry chef doesn’t quite translate what she does, she’s a pastry sculptor and artist: shortcake somehow reminiscent of a ripe peach, braided pigtail pie, and scented floral cookies. We shot her in the kitchen of Burrow, her tiny Dumbo bakery tucked discreetly into an office building.
