hard at work

I have been sewing up a storm for my little scarf line Notaire, and have been spending a lot of alone time in my sewing room.
yesterday my sweet husband sat and read to me from my new book The Dirty Life
this is one of life's simple little pleasures that i often forget about.
being read to takes me back to my childhood, when my father would tuck my sister and i in at night and read to us until he inevitably fell asleep with my little sister and I crashed on either shoulder.
this is a free activity, and one that i cherish.
if you need a great book to read aloud i recommend this one, 

This book focuses on the simple pleasures in life that we have all but forgotten.

a new venture

i have been inspired to start a small new venture.
while fall is creeping up on us, I can already feel the difference in the air and the change in the light.
in preparation of cold days ahead i bought some absolutely delicious fabric from which to make a scarf.
the scarf itself turned out beautifully and I haven't been able to leave the house without it.
this scarf has also been garnering a lot of attention on photoshoots from other stylists, assistants, producers and makeup artists.
So much attention in fact that I have decided to make a small line of these exquisite scarves to be sold at a few choice boutiques.
If you are interested in one of your own please leave a comment and I will get back to you asap.
fabric-cashmere cotton(softest flannel on earth)
colors-a variety of muted tones; ciment, granite, peche, pinot, fleur de sel, autumn.

size-two yards long, by 1/2 yard wide(large enough to double as a blanket on your next flight)
there will also be an xl size that is twice the width of the original, and two yards long. 
extra plush!

wish me luck!
