Pie on the Beach



These days...there are sunsets like this, a husband like him, and apple pie so good we keep eating long after our stomachs ache from the sweet. These days are so, so good, just the two of us here in Newport Beach.

Tabletop Pretty: Pigeon Toe Ceramics



The weather in Newport Beach is just barely beginning to hint at fall, and I'm itching for just a few more degrees to drop in order to justify daily Mexican hot chocolate. Until then, pining over these beautiful ceramic mugs by Pigeon Toe, with their satin white finish and copper base, perfect for late autumn sips of chocolate, tea, or coffee. The collection also includes a serving bowl and gravy boat (any use for that this month hmm?) along with plates, all with the same soft white and copper finish. We won't be hosting Thanksgiving this year, yet I'm so tempted to throw a Friendsgiving before the holiday as an excuse to adorn my table with these elegant, graceful beauties...

Last fall I visited a centuries-old porcelain factory in Berlin (heaven for me, can you imagine??), where I was transfixed by the films they showed of pottery throwing. Something about watching potters at the wheel feels so soothing and calming, working more wonders on me than yoga ever could... So last but not least, below is a video showing Pigeon Toe's process, and someone let me know if they find this as hypnotizing as I do, please....

// Love this studio tour of Pigeon Toe with designer Lisa Jones!
// If you liked the white minimalism of the pieces above, these candles by Standard Wax will do it for you too...
