For the love of all things vintage, clever, designed, and/or delicious, we celebrate objects and rituals in all their glory!
As much as I dread walking around NYC in the snow....I still can't deny how pretty it is....

Hurray for new things!
This lovely piece is a "limited edition 12 month calendar featuring beautiful kittens in United Bamboo Ready-to-Wear."
Each month is of a cat wearing especially designed outfits perfectly tailored & sized for the kitties...I know...
Now that's.....purrrrrtty cool.
I really don't think I can get as motivated for the year if I didn't get this!
On top of that, I'm also just a sucker for cleverly designed & packaged item. Alex' work are always so well detailed, clever & fun.
It comes in a beautiful silk-screened sleeve, and all the number on the dates are blind embossed onto nice heavy gloss sheets. The very last page even has all 12 months silver foil stamped as well....
....I think I died a little when I was holding it in my hands and looking at faces of these cats in their fancy outfits...
and of course to top it off....they even included little brief bios about each kitty and what they like & dislike....
I know what you're thinking....I'm gonna become a crazy cat lady...
but guess what?.....you probably right...that might just happen.
My sister showed me this inspirational book "Lists: To-dos, Illustrated Inventories, Collected Thoughts, and Other Artists' Enumerations from the Collections of the Smithsonian Museum"
The long title says it all..it's pretty much a beautiful visual documentation of all sorts of creative artists' various sketches/mind maps/lists/ideas.
It's so neat to see the various ways of how each person organizes their thoughts and ways of documenting that on paper.... all of which are works of art in itself.
I love this list by Adolf Konrad where he drew out all the things he was packing for a trip....including himself. How lovely...
...and now....I need to get started on my 2011 list (s)!!
I like feeling like sun shining into our windows all year round even when it's actually miserablly rainy or cloudy out.So beautifully real...

L&G's Superior Servers actually got featured by Katie Woolsey (Marketing editor for Country Living Magazine) where she presented a holiday gift guide under $50 for local news channel in Denver!
It's our first time being on TV and boy are we glad that it was just the servers that go on TV and not us! :P
The duo started the company solely creating modern party pinatas & garlands to for the most amazing companies & people doing installations, events & performances.
I'm imagining their work days is like having a fun party everyday...partying like it's 1999.....except in 2011.
What a life!
I can't wait to party everyday....I mean, work.
Here's to another exciting New Year!!
