Perhaps a little birdie told you… or a (very wise) friend on Facebook might have invited you (RSVP here)… or maybe you even caught the JL & Co. sponsorship announcement during our local PBS affiliate—WVIA public broadcasting—Masterpiece Theatre airing of Mr. Selfridge last night?
Well, we’re delighted to announce that the acclaimed florist, artist, designer, and author Livia Cetti will delight Jane Leslie & Co. customers with an in-store demonstration and book signing! As massive fans of Livia’s The Green Vase collection of artisan-crafted paper fleurs (available at JL & Co.), we’re so excited for the Thursday, April 17 event—when Livia will reveal her secrets for creating gorgeous and realistic paper flowers and sign her latest book, The Exquisite Book of Paper Flowers: A Guide to Making Unbelievably Realistic Paper Blooms.

It’s an unpacking disco here at the J.L.&Co. HQ! Our hearts are a’flutter for the much anticipated shipment of Seletti Wears Toilet Paper (along with Seletti's covetable collaborations with Selab and Maxime Ansiau) that just arrived at our Pennsylvania boutique from the Lombardy regionof Italy, Cicognara, Mantova to be exact.
We’re already plotting our Super Bowl and Valentine’s Day picks from the fabulously recherché collaborative collections.
It’s official: #NEPA is about to get recruited to Team Seletti x TP. #quirky #ArtBasel #devoted #collectible #epic.

TOILET PAPER MAGAZINE’s imagery––punchy, rich, highly produced, and bordering on the Surrealist––is delectable however it’s served up. Founded as a passion project in June 2010 by MAURIZIO CATTELAN, Pierpaolo Ferrari, and Micol Talso (all world-renowned creative geniuses in their own right), the magazine is an image-based publication with a clear aesthetic: juxtaposing simplicity with graphic visions to create discomfort. Like “I love you” spelled out with a knife (“I”), a human heart (“love”), and a horseshoe (“you”) set against a blood-splattered white canvas. Or a disembodied hand with a finger dripping blood with the consistency of shiny, deep red molasses. The result is simultaneously stunning and disturbing imagery, and it’s totally brilliant. The historic Italian housewares brand must have also gotten the memo, because it paired up with the magazine to create Seletti Wears Toilet Paper, a collection of dishes with Toilet Paper’s most iconic imagery…
While we’re still here at Jane Leslie & Co. HQ working on a very special project afterhours, we’re warming up with a few of our favorite fragrances from the spicy Oriental family. But which to spritz first?
