Jewelry Sample Sale


My artist grandfather

I've written some more about my grandfather, Garth Williams. Did you know he was a sculptor before he started illustrating children's books? Or that he was a Red Cross volunteer in London during the war? Read more...

Illustrator Garth Williams with his sculpture of a bust

I'm taking this year to research and write about my family, sharing what I find here and on my blog. If you'd like to catch up, here are all the installments in the series so far.


These 3 things:

An incredible view of the patterns we make on this planet;
life on one park bench seen over a decade;
this celebration of the many ways we move our bodies.


What's your favorite store?

I'm compiling a list of the most wonderful jewelry stores in America. Please reply to this email and tell me about your local store, or that fabulous place you came across while traveling. I want to know about them all.


Worth watching

Andy Goldsworthy documentary Leaning into the Wind

There are so many videos being posted all the time but some films really are worth watching:
A man continuing 140 years of candy making;
this slow meditation on creating and being in relationship with place;
and if the new Andy Goldsworthy documentary is showing within traveling distance, go see it.

What have you been watching? Let me know by replying to this email. I always need suggestions.
