I discovered this sweat bee (agapostemon virescens) cozied up in a dahlia yesterday at the pea patch. It’s an extraordinary looking bee, and the first one, I believe, that I have ever seen. •

Almost more eager than the older ones, she packs her bag and is ready to go. Clothes. One overnight cloth diaper for sleeping just in case. Extra panties. Big sister’s old softball shirt for jams. Pacifier. La La her teletubbie. Her @the_bitten_mitten swaddle. (Calls it her magic blankie) and most important, chapstick. Watermelon chapstick. 
Still that little dimple in her arm and that little baby pudge on her wrist. ☺️ #tograndmashousewego #grandmashouse #goingtograndmas #documentyourdays #storytellingphotography #shamoftheperfect #thehonestlens #thebeautifulreal #childhoodunplugged #themagicofchildhood #therebelliousstoryteller #letthembelittle #ourcandidlife #project_faceless #everydayextraordinary

Readymade with text from the title of a Jatra script- at the Diamond Library 2018, Chitpur, Kolkata #chitpurlocal #hamdasti #everydayextraordinary #jatra #suhasinikejriwal
The last morning of summer 2018. So long, dear friend, and thank you for the beauty and wonderment I beheld in your days.

When you have amazingly talented friends who love your family probably more than you deserve, your baby gets the world’s most gorgeous blanket to remind her of the ocean and your toddler becomes Baby Shark.

The unicorn teether is finished, and I have to be honest everyone... I'm in love. Something about that satin mane has me smitten. While @moseyhandmade and I won't be able to offer this style of mane on bonnets, I think it will still be a great pairing. This is definitely the option I suggest if you have a tiny babe who likes to mouth everything in sight... (like my Joules). I'm working hard tomorrow to finish all outstanding orders and set up the listings for Wednesday. How is the drop only 5 days away?!
(And who else is counting down?) 🦄🐉

Maurizio Galante @mauriziogalante and Tal Lancman @tal_lancman, who together formed Interware, created a compelling but, (at least among the DT group), divisive installation called the Manga Tea Room at this year’s AD Intérieurs showhouse.
••••
The theme was inspired by their collection of the Japanese graphic novels and the related figurines, especially the monsters. Images of their figurine collection, they developed a custom wallpaper (on gold foil!) with @lamaisonpierrefrey that wrapped the entire room. ••••
For those who may remember the googly-eyed furniture the pair used in last year’s installation (another monster reference), this year the eyes were seen on “Monster in the Mirror”, their custom design produced by @lasvit.
••••
And how about that glorious long #fringe on the orange table and accompanying cabinet? The material wasn’t listed in the credits, but it was a type of rubberized cord. Love this idea and had to take a detail shot to show a bit of how it was done. Happy #fringefriday #fringefriends!

Directly opposite from the Meditation Room was the Precious Office by @thierrylemaire_ moving from a cloud-like atmosphere into a narrow, darkly sophisticated space that mixed Jazz Age decadence with bit of ’80s glam, all expertly balanced to make it utterly seductive for today.
••••
A stunning chandelier that dripped with asymmetrical “fringe”—actually shaped blades of matte black and polish brass—was difficult to shoot, so you just have to believe us when we say it was amazing.
••••
After the impact of that chandelier, other details came into focus: a gold-leaf and hand painted panel by @feaucie, contemporary embroidered wall panels by @degournay (we took a crazy large number of shots of these), which lead us to the meticulously hand embroidered cushions by @pl_studio_design.
••••
Dark, decadent, louche and luxe—a complete 180 from the meditation room across the hall, but just as enthralling!

Yoga Nidra, translated as "yogic sleep," is the yoga that you don't have to do. It's deeply relaxing guided meditation for your whole body. While lying down, you'll be guided through a relaxation experience that encourages a systematic relaxation of the body while the mind enters a deep state of meditative awareness. Transform stress and anxiety while increasing health and wellness.

No yoga or meditation experience needed. Wear comfortable clothing and bring anything that makes you feel at ease...your favorite pillow, blanket, or eye pillow. $20 / $16 for members

The Meditation Room by @mathieulehanneur at the AD Intérieurs showhouse was filled with the most amazing, subtle details. It fulfilled its mission not just due to the white, calming atmosphere, but also because those details deserved intense focus. The rewards of that concentration: A better understanding of truly exceptional design.
••••
What we loved:
1) The build-outs that surrounded the windows, softening the arches, with angular marble inserts disguising the wall below the frames. The translucent linen sheers give just a hint of the diamond-pane windows beneath. @par_excellence_nyc

2) The curving, circular repetitions from the carpet up to the ceiling. An ombré carpet, accented with a round brass insert (genius!) leads to the flaring shape of a straw marquetry table. The curves are echoed by the cloud-like forms of the sofa and, of course, the wonderful ceiling fixture. Bonus are the billowing clouds in the B&W litho art (showing perhaps an rendition of Vesuvius?) Rug @manufacturedetapisdebourgogne. Sofa fabrication by @ateliersjouffre; fabrics @lelievreparis. Straw marquetry @lisondecaunes

3) The triangle fireplace insert with its featured spiky brass flame.

4) The brass, LED and passementerie lamps—minimalist yet packing a stunning visual wallop!  @declercqpassementiers and @ozone_light

Definitely one of our favorite rooms at the show.

These always amaze me with their camouflage abilities,  shingles, grasses, sandy mudflats, they just morph into their surroundings.

Another room at the AD Intérieurs showhouse DT fell in love with was “Chambre Couture” by @annesophie.pailleret. It was, in her own words, an example of “bespoke decor joining the worlds of couture, jewelry, and interior design, to create a refined atmosphere of discreet luxury.” ••••
The Art Deco-esque Jupiter chaise by Jumbo dominated one side of the circular room, which was completed wrapped in ceiling-to-floor draperies of the palest pink wool satin from  @creationsmetaphores, embellished seemingly at random with sequins, bugle beads and bits of mother-of-pearl. These draperies opened in front of the window in a gracefully sweeping hidden drawback that had all of us peering inside to see how it was managed!
••••
Other highlights in the room included the deeply textured plaster chimney surround and blush-colored leather ceiling insert, featuring brushstrokes of gold-leaf that accented a fabulous brass and rock crystal light fixture. Honestly, the lighting and ceiling treatments many of the rooms were worth the price of admission alone…

He's a bashful dragon.
Each of the 3 body styles (yes, I said 3!) will have these sweet iridescent fins. They are made from the same fabric as the dragon @moseyhandmade bonnets.
I'll be making 2 or 3 of these little dragon plush buddies, depending on interest. Want to see the whole thing? Let me know below!

So... who's been anxiously awaiting our collab reveal? (And who figured it out already? 😉) I'm working with @moseyhandmade to create a bonnet/Cuddle pair, perfect for pretend play and beyond! Head over to Jes's feed to see the Unicorn duo. Both creatures will be releasing on Wednesday, September 26th at 9pm EST.
Which set is your favorite?

The AD Intérieurs showhouse is always one of the highlights of the September DT Paris trip—and this year did not disappoint.
••••
There was something to discover in every room, but certain ones are always crowd favorites. On the ground floor was the “Playboy’s Bedroom” by Porto-based design firm @oitoemponto. Over the past several years, their installations at AD Intérieurs have been stunning, so, hearing the initial room description means, we confess, we were prepared to be underwhelmed. Maybe it’s the American in us, but Playboy’s bedroom brings up images of shag carpet, maybe a round bed in tacky satin sheets, a novelty bar set up, etc. ••••
So we were blown away by the moody elegance of this room. A dramatically oversize photo of a Navy crew in dress blues is the backdrop for a beautifully restrained bed that, instead of dominating the space, as you might expect in a “playboy’s bedroom” helps set the tone of understated seduction. (The other wall features the same scale image, only with a crew in their whites.)
••••
The @degournay wallpaper, with its darkly mysterious forest scenery, was hand painted on site, and it flows into the black lacquered arches that frame the windows, doors and alcoves of the room. The motorized silk draperies were also to be hand painted by the de Gournay artists, but with time running out and the artists still occupied by the wallpaper, the panels were sent out for glittering embroidery instead.
••••
Luxe, seductive, enthralling with a modern masculinity, it’s dangerously fascinating combination and a description that suits (at least a DT-fantasy) playboy to perfection. 📷: @oitoemponto except 5&6. With bed, sheer, and upholstery fabrics(and rug) from @lamaisonpierrefrey

So as today wraps up I look back at basic happinesses. I went to the gym, got lunch with friends, played video games, and have an evening full of studying to look forward to. When I was in college my life looked like this although this version has a lot less partying and drinking and more adult responsibilities attached. It’s a feeling of progression- specifically with the gym and studying. Working towards achievable goals really gives me a good feeling to feed off of- especially during times of difficulty. I made progress today mentally and physically, and I feel good. Running a marathon one step at a time.

My life has just been ups and downs lately. As soon as I think I’m back to normal, something bad happens and I’m struggling again. One step forward two steps back. I woke up today feeling better than I usually do during times like these so that’s good- I had a more or less productive day where I studied, went on a photo walk and then promptly had a Hugh Grant movie marathon. These feelings come in waves so if I just keep to my positive habits I should come out of it soon. I have a little bit of light in this darkness- just need to be patient.

So an angry hurricane Florence blew through this state. Brought us winds and rain, but we stayed dry with power so I feel very grateful for that. ♥️ It had everyone cooped up inside which led to a little kitchen hoverboarding. 👌🏻 #storytellingphotography #lifewellcaptured #magicofchildhood #documentyourdays #thebeautifulreal #therebelliousstoryteller #b1withbnw #b1withpov  #lifeunscripted #childhoodunplugged #everydayextraordinary #shamoftheperfect #thedocumentarymovement #familyphotojournalism #familydocumentary

Also... this collection may or may not be a collaboration with another shop. 😉🤗

It’s been all studying and exercise this week. Repetitious but overall good. I’ve been trying to set good productive habits. Habits are stronger than goals I think- because true progress comes in little steps.

It’s “Journées du Patrimoine” or Patrimony Days in France this weekend, which means in part, that hundreds of historic sites that are normally closed to the public open their doors for visits, tours and demonstrations.
••••
The DT team always seems to be traveling during Patrimony Days, which means we're unable to experience much of what is on offer, but we’d like to give you a sample…
•••••
Have you ever wondering what that lovely building just down the street from the Musée d'Orsay might be? It’s the Palais de la Légion d'honneur, formerly the hôtel de Salm, or the former private residence of Frédéric III, prince regent of Salm-Kyrburg, a German principality from before that country consolidated.
••••
Unfortunately, Frédéric and his family spent less than decade in their home—Frédéric was arrested on April 2, 1794 and executed on July 23. All of his property within France was confiscated and the hôtel de Salm spent a tumultuous decade as various private clubs with less-than-savory reputations.
••••
Post-revolution, Napoléon created the “Légion d’honneur” and in 1803 Bernard Germain de Lacépède was installed as the legion’s first “Grand Chancelier”. It was Lacépède who purchased the by-then decrepit hôtel on behalf of the Legion and began a 10-year restoration project. The area of rue de Lille and rue de Solferino became a hub for Empire VIPS, with the now restored Palais acting as a social hub.
••••
But the fires set by the Paris Commune in 1871, which destroyed the Hôtel de Ville and Tuileries Palace, among other buildings, also claimed the Legion’s Palais. Once order was restored to the city, the current Grand Chancellor, initiated a subscription campaign to all Legion of Honor recipients with the mission of reconstructing the palace. 📷: images 2 & 3 via legiondhonneur.fr

Great quotes from and about women on the street at Harvey Nichols in London. Branding genius... they even renamed the store Holly Nichols. #girlpower #leadlikeagirl #womendoitbetter #parisdecortour  #everydayextraordinary

On the way into Shoppers this morning, an older man stopped to admire Lizzy and advise me to enjoy this phase because “it’s what it is all about”. He has sons in their 50’s now and he loved their little years. He went on to tell me that he lost his wife a few years back and that I shouldn’t forget to love my husband even if he drives me crazy. He left me with this “whatever feels like the end of the world today, won’t be a worry in two weeks. I don’t believe my conversation with this man this morning was a coincidence, that is the beautiful handy work, perfect timing, just what I needed to hear, voice of God through a perfect stranger.

I feel back to normal- which means I spent a lot of time studying today. Typically that involves Japanese- but recently I’ve wanted to study more and more mandarin. Alas- the push for the N2 makes this an impossibility but this crazy interest of mine does reflect something about myself that I’m quite proud of. I enjoy learning new things and understanding how things work. I’ve recently gotten an acute interest in science as well- just casually learning basic theories on YouTube to pass the time. For good or bad, the N2 has made me stop flirting with other academia and focus on one- which is both amazing and frustrating. If I pass the N2- it would be quite an achievement. I’m nervous, but interesting in how I’ll do.

Back in Paris and because one impressive statue deserves another.... Napoléon as “le Petit Caporal“  dominates the Cour d’Honneur of historic Hôtel des Invalides. Positioned on the upper level opposite the entrance to the main courtyard, visitors are immediately caught by his downward gaze.
•••••
The statue itself has an very interesting history, with as many ups & downs as Napoléon’s 
career. Cast in 1833 from the Austrian and Russian cannons seized during Napoleon’s 1805 campaign, the statue was originally placed atop the Vendôme Column. ••••• During the French-Prussian war in 1870, the statue was dumped (or hidden?) in the Seine at the Pont de Neuilly where it spent four months.
•••••
Once recovered, the statue was stored at the marble depot on the Île des Cygnes where model of the Statue of Liberty now stands. In 1911 General Niox, governor of Les Invalides, had the statue transferred to its present-day site and a full restoration was completed in 2014-2015.

Our whirlwind trip to London doesn’t allow for much free time, so instead we dug into our archives for these shots of the Albert Memorial in Kensington Gardens, taken on a visit several years ago.
