Thanks to technology, we live in a global community. It has been so enriching in so many ways and we count followers from as close as a few miles from my studio to all the way to Australia, New Zealand, and beyond. It is wonderful when friends reach out to us, and we so appreciate hearing from readers and love sending magazines all over the world.
So it was a delight and a surprise when a French retailer reached out to us to kick off their summer sales campaign online. Hediard PARIS (www.hediard.com) is a company that creates beautiful gift baskets and hampers filled with fine foods and beverages to send as gifts. They rang us up to ask if they could include an image I shot a few years ago of an ice cream scoop filled with black raspberry ice cream atop a steely zinc surface. We happily consented, and I am honored for my work to be included in the welcome image to their summer website. Check it out, and while you are there peruse their wonderful and tempting gift ideas. And stay tuned for our upcoming Mother's Day ideas and prizes inspired by our new book FLEA MARKET FINDS WITH MATTHEW MEAD.
