Last week we raided the closets of some of our favorite haberdashers; this coming week we’ll be on the mountains, visiting ski cabins and rounding up fondue pots. Join us!

• In the closet with Jesse Tyler Ferguson (of Modern Family) and Justin Mikita (lawyer and cofounder of Tie the Knot).

• Christine was checking out Ten Houses to Ring-in Spring.

• Remodelista’s SF-based associate editor, Alexa Hotz, reveals her favorite room of 2012 in Elle Decor. Hint: Athena Calderone sourced her chandelier here.

• Sibella Court’s 10 Favorite Things, including her newest soap line featuring scents like Almalfi (L) and Kurokawa (R).

• Remodelista’s NYC editor, Francesca Connolly, at home in Brooklyn Heights, in Elle Decor this month, photographed by William Waldron.

• Julie is inspired to try this DIY lighting project.

• Guess how much this emerald green sconce costs?

• Just when we thought we had seen enough lifestyle magazines, Sarah picked up this new one at Unionmade.

• Checking out these Easy Valentine’s Day DIYs with paper—and thinking about paper wreaths blotted with India ink from Tail of the Yak.

• Admiring the rainwater collection set up at Anne Suttles and Sam Shah’s home in Austin.

• A $30M Bedford Hills estate with a “Gypsy Wagon” (once used as teahouse) included.

• Spotted on Gear Patrol, Where Chefs Eat.

Meanwhile, over at Gardenista, Michelle is obsessing about her camellias:

* While Michelle is raiding her garden, this weekend the American Camellia Society is holding its annual convention in Napa Valley; the camellia show is open to the public from 1 pm to 4:30 Saturday. For more information, see American Camellia Society National Convention. The society has named Southern landscape designer James Farmer its national spokesman.

* Spun sugar, garden edition, spotted via Garden Design. Frost flowers form in the early morning after sap expands and creates cracks in a stem. Water seeps through, then freezes in the air, creating a cotton candy effect.
