the UK-based clothing company toast is like a refined, british anthropologie. i've received a couple of their (thick!) catalogues, and i'm in love.
the clothing is beautiful. but it's the photography and the page layouts and the weight of the catalogue that really made me fall for them. better than any anthro or j.petermann catalogue that i've loved in the past.
if only the dollar were not such a weakling...
check out their website -- or request a catalogue here.

these muji colored pencils get me as excited as a 64-pack of crayolas.
moma store tells me: the name 'muji' is derived from the japanese phrase 'mujirushi ryohin,' meaning 'no brand goods.'
i love the perfect, simple, natural packaging. and each bright color!

apologies for the quiet.
there's lots to catch up on after two long weekends of houseguests!
first, the laundry & the living room & the groceries & the overflowing inbox.
then, the backlog of random ideas & pictures that have piled up in my head.
working on both...
on that note, i'd love to live in a prefab someday.

perched on a rock in the middle of narragansett bay in rhode island, clingstone has avoided falling into the ocean for a century.
dramatic. and gorgeous. and from this nytimes article, it sounds like the ultimate fixer upper.
i love the history, and from all the photos, i love love the house.
to keep the huge home in shape, the owner hosts annual "work weekends" and invite 50+ friends and family come to eat&drink and clean&repair. sign me up please!
