mai autumn
Asbury Park, NJ
In 2009, I started Mai Autumn with the idea of making life a little lovelier. My name is Christine Lindstrom, and I design jewelry, home decor, and more, with this in mind. From time to time, you might also find discovered vintage curiosities, or handmade wares from my favorite designers. I like to think of this website as my place to share with and inspire those who stumble upon my little patch of the internet. So, please, take a look around and make yourself at home! If you need me, I'll be in the kitchen! ( ... actually, you can reach me at christine@maiautumn.com!) ------ Christine’s work has received praise from Lucky Magazine, Southern Living, Dwell Magazine, Apartment Therapy and many other prominent publications and websites.
