SO, IT WAS TOTALLY RAD AND EVERYTHING TO HAVE SOLD OUT OF OUR COLLECTION AT OUR LAST SHOW IN THE WEST VILLAGE. BUT NOW THE RAILS ARE LOOKING MIGHTY SILM. UNFASHIONABLY UNDERFED, SKELETAL, EVEN. 

WE'VE GOT NO PRODUCT MAN!

ITS TIME TO START AGAIN.

WE'RE KIND OF EXPERTS AT STARTING OVER; HAVING LIVED FAR TOO MANY LIVES IN TOO MANY PLACES IN TOO SHORT A TIME. BUT THATS ANOTHER STORY.

NOW ITS TIME TO GET RE-INSPIRED:

TO GET THE JUICES FLOWING. WE JUICED YESTERDAY MORNING. A SHADE OF PINK SO SUBLIME:

AND THEN DADU CALLED US DOWN TO BOSTON, WHERE HE HAD UNCOVERED SOME VERY FABULOUS INDIAN KANTHA QUILTS. AND WHEN FATHER HAS FOUND SOMETHING, YOU CAN PROBABLY BET ITS GOING TO BE GOOD. HE TAUGHT US ABOUT TWEEDS AND SEVEN FOLD SILK TIES AND THE IMPORTANCE OF AN EXCELLENT HAT. 

"BABY"

HE SAID

"COME TO BOSTON"

SO WE DID.

THIS IS DADU, IN A HAT:

THIS VERTIABLE TRESURE TROVE WAS NONE OTHER THAN MOHR & MCPHERESON, IN THE SOUTH END. WHICH HELD MANY DELIGHTS FOR THIS MAGPIE.

THEY LIVE HERE.

AS MANY QUILTS AS WE COULD CARRY UNDER OUR ARMS, WE CAME HOME TO FOUND EVEN MORE TREASURE HAD ARRIVED.

IN THE FORM OF VINTAGE HANDKERCHIEFS, NO LESS:

THIS DAY WAS BETTER THAN CHRISTMAS. 

(WE MIGHT HAVE A SKEWED PERCEPTION OF REALITY)
