Written. is a unique collection of correspondence by two designers: Leah Faust, Los Angteles-based art director for Faust Haus + Mary Kathryn Wells, New York-based clothing designer for Smart Fitzjerrell.

Our cards are designed using the surprising combo of textiles you ♥ from Smart Fitzjerrell + are handcrafted by the designers themselves. Old school. Better yet- $1 from each card sold is used to purchase supplies for a New Orleans public school established in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

If you are in New York City on 10/24/07 grab a sample of our Leopard + Lace card, as well as a cold, rummy beverage at Smart Fitzjerrell's fall throwdown: 200 Orchard from 6-9pm. If not, e-mail + join the mailing list to preview our 8 limited edition cards available for special order this holiday season: written@smartfitzjerrell.com

Hot damn!

San Francisco Makes Me Hungry

My weekend started off with Emily at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts for a farewell to their beloved curator René De Guzman. We ate dim sum and drank champagne then followed that with some beverages at 111 Minna and The Rite Spot. Then we had late night tacos at Pancho Villa. Then we crashed.

Saturday morning we were off to Philz for chai brewed one cup at a time with powdered herbs. Outrageously good.

On out walk through the Mission we saw a fresh gold tag on this restaurant signage on 16th

Had a brunch burrito at St. Francis Soda Fountain and met a gentleman who rides with Creatures of the Loin moped gang! Cool.

Emily bought some Pee-Wee cards at the St. Francis candy store: So funny I forgot to laugh.

Sparerib Saturday was a supplement to the Pork Chop Friday supper club which Emily was kind enough to invite me to. Katie cooked some serious ribs with rosemary & wine pan reduction. The dinner was held at Big Dave's house. There were many Kates in attendance including this one:

Kate works at Tartine as a baker and made this magnificent lemon merengue pie. We enjoyed it and said goodnight...

In the morning I spent time looking some of Em's art collection

And her recently aquired books from Last Gasp- this one is The R. Crumb Handbook.

We headed out to Mission Beach Cafe to drink some Blue Bottle Coffee.

Then to Dolores Park to play with random dogs before I jetted back to LA. Thanks as always Em for bringing the superfun and interesting times.
