Announcing Pigtown*Design, the Magazine

For the past few weeks, I have been working on a top-secret project – Pigtown*Design, the Magazine. Tada!cover The inaugural issue features stories about my recent treasure hunt, some of my favourite places in Baltimore, 5-30 052 my French Ivory collection, spoons 006 textiles and fabrics, and a glimpse of Wales. donats2 I work to integrate my professional life and my creative life, with a lot of overlap. One thing I’ve been investigating for Woodbourne is doing an on-line only version of our 2010 Annual report. Instead of printing our annual report, I’ll just send a post card and an e-mail with the link to it. It’s a green alternative and a huge money-saver!

Please take a look at Pigtown*Design, The Magazine and let me know what you think!

  19. Meg,
    This is great. I seriously can't wait to get my first copy. I would love for you to add a few trusted upolsterers and custom drapery makers to take the great fabric finds and yard sale pieces to get redone!

    Preppy Player you should visit for a great section on all of the neighborhoods. I'm partial to Hampden and as Meg says, Woodberry Kitchen is a MUST do while you are in town. They have a great brunch.
