1st birthday 

A year ago I created Lox Papers as a spot to archive my design inspiration – its purpose could best be described as a personal resolution to keep better records of the things that inspire me and my work. I never expected to be introduced to such incredible people in the process. Along with the big personal and professional announcements I recently alluded to, this upcoming year on the blog brings with it a new resolution, to get to know you all better.. 2010 has been a tad hectic between work and the wedding, so t-h-a-n-k you so much for keeping Lox Papers going everyday with your wonderful comments and personal emails*

xx, Jane

1 part color, 2 parts whimsy

A dose of color and whimsy for this Monday afternoon. We have had an awful lot of libra birthdays at work, mine included, and I think any of the following etsy prints (2-8) would make darling little gifts >> 1) Jenny Bowers illustrated these wonderful birdcages -- I just love the mixture of layers and colors! 2) my favourites 3) such a perfect housewarming gift too -- I adore this lovely house, with its balloons and red vespa 4) I love you prints from dekanimal: bottle + typewriter. Especially perfect to brighten up your office walls are a 5) royal blue typewriter 6) scissors for your crafty side 7) this red suitcase print (I picked it up at a craft fair in Brooklyn and I must warn you that it will lead to increased wanderlust!) 8) a pretty pink camera ...and 9) last but not least, how delightful is Miss Bower's Easy Summer Living --what a picture of domestic harmony! 


a few things one might do


as the saying goes...

slow and steady wins the race >> 1) I'm cheating - but this hedge hog, ostrich coin purse was too cute to omit 2) my favorite frames, moscot's nebb 3) cocktail ring, by austrian designer mesi jilly 4) resin bar clutch 5) vintage seahorse earrings, only $10! 6) three ball table lamp 7) rootbeer bakelite bangle 8+20) mason pearson combs 9) glass vase - I see fresh cut peonies in them already 10) brass shell lamp 11) powder compact 12) quite possibly my favorite letter opener - the tortoise and the hare 13) stella clutch 14) patent bronze tortoise belt 15) paperweight 16) vintage dior sunglasses 17) patent flats 18) lucite horse-head brooch 19) bakelite button 

posting has been light lately, but there are several B-I-G announcements on the way... let's just say I can hardly wait for winter! xx, Jane
