Weekend with Paco
Spent the weekend in Santa Barbara — at antique shops, at the beach, at Julienne’s, at Kenny and Chris’ Shasta — with my dear friend Paco who is on a cross country excursion. En route back to LA, we diverted to Ojai, taking some of Heather Taylor’s suggestions to check the farmer’s market and brunch at The Farmer and the Cook. ...
The kind girls of Daily Candy wrote today about Lady Whitaker’s “Mix and Match Studs: Punky Earrings for Commitmentphobes.” And they called out the great retailers — Mohawk General Store, Gravel & Gold, General Store and Totokaelo — who carry them. Thank you so much, Jordan!
Today I met the amazing women behind the store LMNOP (Let’s Make Nice on Purpose) in Newport Beach. They have a beautiful aesthetic and vision. I am delighted they are carrying Kathleen Whitaker jewelry. Visit!

Jeff Phelps: Sculptures
Our friend, the talented architect Jeff Phelps, makes these wood sculptures that are at once simple and intricate. They are usually fabricated from several kinds of found wood (mahogany, cherry, walnut) in Winchester, Kentucky.
Another look through John Fox’s lens during his recent residency at Chez Whitaker.

B and I just returned from our inaugural trip to Oahu. Fast but fun. Hope to return soon!
The exhibition of Beatrice Wood’s work at Santa Monica Museum of Art, part of Pacific Standard Time, is beautiful and edifying. Especially captivating were the works on paper — drawings, watercolors, letters — and other ephemera that provided a window into her life, her charisma, and the vital creative community she helped galvanize. See the show before it closes February...
Echo Park goes to Williamsburg
The Echo Park Craft Sale we’ve been doing for the past couple of years is hitting the road. Please check it out in Williamsburg, Brooklyn at Beautiful Dreamers from February 10th - 19th!
My friend Priscilla snagged this one-of-a-kind triangle necklace back in December at the Angelino Heights Craft Sale. Because she is the best model for it and wears it everyday, requests have been coming in…time to make more!
When Priscilla asked what she, Mike and Emi could contribute to dinner last night, I suggested just a small sweet treat for dessert. After our lamb sausage quiches (a facsimile of Kristen’s recipe), Priscilla presented two bars of Trader Joe’s dark chocolate with caramel and black sea salt. It was good. Very, very good. So inspired by the sensational...
