Swede Things

Teresa's back from a trip to Sweden! Here are some photos, it's a mix of nature, man-made, abstract and concrete.

I loooove the lake view above. It's so peaceful, and the colors are so cozily, hazily fall.
Here are some of our favorite Swedish movies

Let the Right One In-the best vampire movie ever. Also, read the book of the same title. It's not your usual vampire romance. In fact, not sure if it is even a love story. If you've seen the movie, any thoughts?

My Life as a Dog-it's so poignant, funny and sad, about a boy's coming of age amidst tragedy. the worst happens early on, and the rest of the film is a healing process for him, surrounded by good-hearted adults. The young actors are amazing here.

Believe it or not, Halloween is right around the corner...again! Time goes by quick! In fact, it was almost 20 years ago that Johnny Depp became Edward Scissorhands in that magical Tim Burton film, so if you are thinking of dressing up for All Hallows' Eve- here are some inspirations, including a makeup tutorial to recreate an uncanny resemblance to Edward Scissorhands. Enjoy! And be sure to check out to get jewels that complete any costume, any day!

This week is especially autumnal in NYC. The coats get heavier as days get shorter. It's only been a week into fall, and already one's nostalgic about heat waves of the summer past. How do you keep summer days from drifting away? With colors, of course. Here are some of Teresa's signature enamel pieces, all vibrant hues of red, pale yellow, deep cobalt, and sea green. They were brilliantly captured on a clear summer day on the seaside town of Montauk, NY. The photographer is Margaret Danek Vasquéz, paper design extraordinaire and founder of Tiger & Jones stationery whose clients include The Chateau Marmont, Conde Nast, and Will Ferrell. Her mission is to "restore the art in the art of letter writing."
