KAABOO. TLC Love.

Yahoo – it’s time for Kaaboo. I’m so lucky this music festival is my own backyard. And guess who I am most excited to see? No, not Imagine Dragons, not the Foo Fighters and not Katy Perry. But TLC. I LOVE TLC.

Never Forget. Always Remember. 9.11

Everyone remembers exactly what they were doing. I was a new mom – I sat and hugged my daughter and cried. Never Forget. Always Remember.

“We will remember every rescuer who died in honor. We will remember every family that lives in grief. We will remember…” #NeverForget #NeverForget911

Jack White!

My husband and I saw Jack White last night. He’s a musical genius. I’ve seen him during all his incarnations – solo, White Stripes, Raconteurs, Dead Weather. Every time I am amazed.

New Design – Memory Collector…

We thought about calling this necklace the Memory Hoarder, but felt that wasn’t a wise choice. So instead it’s the Memory Collector – because memories are what we do around here. Imprint memories, love, sentimentality onto little pieces of metal. Choose from a cool assortment of vintage charms to dress up your memories.

Pippi Love.

I love Pippi Longstockings so much that I wanted to name one of my daughters Astrid or Annika. When I was little, I was mesmerized she could pick up a horse, that she lived on her own and was so damn happy. I would watch her for hours as her mouth moved one way and the words didn’t jive. On our recent trip to Sweden, there was Pippi inspiration everywhere. There is no doubt that Astrid Lindgren is a national hero. I was so happy.

What Do You Want To Be When You Grow Up?

I told my mom when I was about seven that I wanted to be a Vegas Showgirl when I grew up – the feathers! the rhinestones! the high heels! the make-up! Well that didn’t happen for various reasons, but designing jewelry is kind of close. I still want to be a Vegas Showgirl.
