With sandal season officially upon us, I wanted to share some of my favorites. Handmade in Greece using gorgeous natural leather that ages beautifully with time and wear, Ancient Greek Sandals are the perfect summer sandal – chic, classic, and available at a great price.
In our house, Richard and I stopped buying plastic water bottles almost ten years ago in an effort to go greener and healthier. I was disgusted by the amount of plastic bottles we were going through and got nervous when I would see bubbles at the top of my bottles that had been left in the car. With emerging information about the potential release of carcinogens in plastic bottles that have been exposed to heat, it was very clear that we had to make a change.
My husband Richard and close friend Amanda turned me onto Caleb Siemon’s beautiful hand-blown glass over ten years ago and I was instantly hooked. He makes the most gorgeous glass vases that I never tire of – I have them sprinkled around my home and sell them in all of my stores.
I mentioned Victoria Morris’ incredible pottery in my post on Lauri Kranz’ wonderful shopsite, Edible Gardens Market. These hand thrown ceramic herb vessels are her latest offering, and I ordered them the minute they hit the site. They are so beautiful – I planted succulents in them and am simply in love.

As soon as I found out that I was pregnant with Tanner, I did a lot of research on everything that I was putting in and on my body. What I found prompted me to clean house, and really change the way I lived. Some of the most important changes that I made were in the kitchen – certainly the kinds of foods and ingredients that I was using – but just as importantly, the tools that I was cooking with.
An online shop made up of “new, found, and collaborative items thoughtfully crafted,” Quitokeeto is one of my recent happy discoveries. Curated by Heidi Swanson of 101 Cookbooks (who is always a favorite) and Wayne Bremser, it includes a beautiful assortment of items and ingredients for the kitchen and beyond. I am especially in love with the linen bento bags – and just ordered a set for myself!
An amazing firm specializing in commercial, residential and graphic design, Commune is the genius behind a myriad of incredible spaces and projects – Farmshop and Heath Ceramics being two of my favorites.
