  3. Dearest MaiTai!

    I've said this before, but will say it again: T H A N K Y O U for sharing your beautiful world with us--it is one of my best treats at the end of a long day to stop by here and behold your elegant and clever styling and amazing MaiTaiCollection pieces!!!

    For me the absolute highlight is your new Toile de Jouy travel pochette in the beige/ecru 'theme'. So very sophisticated and playful at the same time.

    And, as I am still catching up w/ the blog--WOW to the Birkin 35cm inserts!!! MaiTai, you are a genius. What I love about your invention is that the base is quilted, the colors are just such a pleasure to the senses, and the numerous pockets are custom-made....AND...here's the best part: a fraction of the cost of what H charges for their bag insert, which is a bit bulky too.

    And, while I'm on a rollllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll.....

    One quality I love so much about your philosophy is using each and every precious item you have so lovingly, thoughtfully acquired--your "less is more" shines through.

    Have a most wonderful sojourn, and as always, we will eagerly await your posts to this blog.

    Cheers,
    sammie

  13. Dearest Mai Tai,

    Happy Birthday and Happy Mother's Day!

    Your parcel arrived just in time for Mother's day and I'm very happy to made the right decision by purchasing your carre pochette as one of the present for my mum! The workmanship is simply exquisite! I was waiting for this to come so that I can decide on the colour for my next purchase, the bag insert for my 2 GPs. To be able to hold up the bag, your idea is brilliant! I am even looking to buy a Picotin MM just so that I can purchase your other bag insert to go with it, not the other way, LOL!! You made me so addictive!! I will make my purchase soon once I decide on the colour.

    Wishing you good health, good wealth and keep inspiring!!

    With all my best wishes,
    Jasmine, Singapore

  16. A very warm and heartfelt thank you to those whose comments got accidentally deleted. I read them all (before fatefully hitting the ‘delete all’ instead of the ‘publish all’ button), and they meant so much... thank you for having brought a wonderful extra sparkle to my birthday xx

  17. You are the most inspiring inspiration, dearest MaiTai! There is always a touch of magic in everything you do, in everything you see, and most especially in everything you create. Just love you in the black/natural outfit - how I too feel so at home in those colors. Sending you much love and big happy hugs to you xxx
