my office wall is complete.

Thanks to my birthday, I was finally able to expand my little gallery wall around my office area. I bought the Rifle Paper print (on the left) at the cutest paper store in Portsmouth, NH: Gus and Ruby Letterpress. I had wanted it for a while, so when I saw it I knew it was meant to be. You just can't screw around with fate, especially when it's in printed form.

The second addition might be my most favorite piece of art I own. A while ago, I read all about Carter Kustera on A Piece of Toast. He's a famous silhouette artist based in NYC and his work has been exhibited throughout the world (it also can be found in numerous Jonathan Adler stores). If you provide digital silhouettes of man or beast, he will transform them into a collectable piece of art. Of course, I decided I needed one of my beloved four-legged friend, and my darling sister and her husband made it happen.

What I like most about his Carter's work is that he does the silhouette and then he adds a sassy saying underneath...and I especially love what is written under Olive:

The absolute best.


  1. Your little nugget is even cute silhouetted - the desk is GREAT! (And obviously love the oyster shout out... mmm oysters...)

  2. I don't have a desk. When I work from him I just sit on my couch or in a comfy chair, but decorating an office makes me want one!

  3. It looks so good! Glad it's complete now.
