Thank you dear readers for being patient as I prepare many wonderful features coming soon. This coming week will include my first house tour on the blog of a never published lovely home here on Nantucket. In the meantime, I’ll share with you an irresistibly charming piece I happened across from Hermès. It encapsulates many of the concepts I try to share here – from the legacy of historic brands, to how the past is inexorably linked to creation in the present, to the importance of living with what you love, the personal aspects of the art of collecting and most importantly, how, no matter what the subject, it’s always all about the story. My favorite quote from the conversation is how this one special object “held an entire universe of sequences;” how this “elegant sequences of ideas” essentially made the house of Hermès. Enjoy this small jewel that says so much!

Lovely piece on the house of Hermès, I always look forward to your posts!
I adore this video: the individuality of each cane, the unique design and purpose, and the creative thought and exquisite craftsmanship. In a world of mass production, it is especially refreshing, thank you. A wonderful way to start the day!
And, so the saga continues with secrets to share…absolutely enchanting and all held “in a boot!” franki
What a gem of a video! Thank you Stacey for sharing this.
Not usually a fan of blog videos and the time it takes to view but this one was lovely to watch and listen to. I have a friend who collects these types of walking sticks and have always been fascinated by them. How nice it would be to have “meandering” come back into our lives….as Dr. Seuss says “Oh the places you’ll go!”. Thanks so much for sharing.
That was just fabulous! Just when I am looking for a cane for my husband, too. Pray to find just one like these?
Thanks for this!
Enchanting! – Taking us back to a time when craftmanship, consideration, imagination and humour all contributed to the creation of elegant pieces which were part of everyday life. Thanks Stacey.
I’ve wanted to carry an elegant and useful cane of late…I think I will!
French CHIC at it’s finest…
