the sampler

A Welcome Note Recently, for my daughter’s “About Me” school collage, the teacher asked that she come to class with a few family photos. To my parental horror, we didn’t have any. Sure, I have 33,358 photos on my phone’s camera roll (y’all, that’s not even an exaggeration!) and plenty posted to Instagram, but not a one sitting in a shoebox. This was all rather surprising because I tend to gravitate toward the tactile. I write in a handheld calendar and prefer to have a printed copy of my boarding pass. This led to a Saturday afternoon in which I took a trip down Shutterfly lane—were my children really that little?!—and placed a bulk order for three-by-fives so that my grandkids can someday rifle through a shoebox and, I hope, see…

If desired, customize with a craft paint or wood stain.

Pets on the Furniture THE FELINE Marie, a six-month-old Maine Coon cat, surveys her kingdom from atop her posh perch. THE FURNITURE Featuring easy-to-clean polyester velvet upholstery and sculpted wooden legs, this sophisticated chaise lounge ($799; walmart.com) comes in three colors (including Parisian Pink, shown) and pairs well with cat motif wallpaper (Sanderson’s “Omega Cats”; stylelibrary.com), 20th-century toleware trays, a rustic floor lamp (“Sloan” lamp, $170; ballarddesigns.com), and an antique Turkish runner. Don’t forget the crocheted cat toys ($17; mungoandmaud.com). Regal Pet Renderings After a museum-filled trip to Europe, George Smith got to thinking: Don’t our pets deserve similarly refined, Renaissance-style portraits? Enter Crown & Paw, which allows you to submit a pet’s photo, select your desired aristocratic garb (regalia! tiaras!), and the site’s digital designers will give Fido the royal treatment. Poster from $30, or Wrapped…
