I must say that I'm blessed to have not only an incredibly creative mother, but mother-in-law as well. Mary not only keeps me current of all the latest trends in art and design but inspires a cultural knowledge that I only hope I can even get close to at her age. Unfortunately I had to miss Maira Kalman last night, but I do hope to check out Droog when Mary is in town next week. Here are a few of my favorites.

I'm completely in love with the work of resurrection fern which I discovered via design sponge today. Ever since I was a child my adoration of rocks, the sea, and bits of forest has lead to pounds of lugging precious pieces that I have a harder time parting with than anything store bought.
Speaking of things I love that are in line with the circular is the work of Jeff Lewis.

We spent the week in Andes accompanied by Aya's best friend Malou (as well as her sister Nico and mommy Sandra). Marius joined us on wednesday. It snowed heavily and we all discovered the power of boredom, wonder and creativity. No need for TV here!
Of course the english have always had an eccentric bold streak along with their very traditional british ways. So to perfectly keep in line with that thought Conde Nast's new fashion celeb mag LOVE just hit the newsstands this week with a fabulous and voluptuous cover of Beth Ditto in the nude.
(which reminds of an amazing ad campaign the Body Shop did years ago of Barbie)

another brilliant and inspiring installment of Maira Kaldman's illustrations, thoughts, reflections... I'll never forget how when I was working for a certain "big corporate" client, access to her site, was blocked due to "explicit and political content".
