find the beauty on your daily walk! take time to notice the details of your landscape.
there is nothing like seeing a great handbag in action.
plastics are our future. how can you resist plastic? it is so shiny and pleasing. I have a penchant for plastics.

have you ever noticed the similarity between nyc fire call boxes and benevolent Kannon, goddess of mercy?
every design, fashion and art magazine I read lately features some important directional artist making big contributions to their genre. and where do they live? brooklyn!
who says there are no more 'new ideas' in art and design? the newness is in the juxtaposition.
this is how I really get things done. with my little green co-worker/task-master.
clothing & accessories design
useful, economical, modular pieces that can be mix-matched in numerous
ways (because why can't fashion be useful and lasting? I think
it can!) So I say Maximize your Minimalism!

current shoe obsession
alas, the sneaker. (because I live in nyc and walk a ton!) but not too
sneakery of a sneaker. more of a sneaker disguised as a shoe, like a mary
jane style or a high-tech looking black one with a metallic accent. how

Sometimes you are more like Blah-ger. I wish you were working. Why won't you post my photos? I am not really at bloggerheads
, that was just for the funny. I do actually have a bunch of posts all ready to go. All they need is the photo. But the photo tool isn't working! There are a lot of bugs on Blah-ger lately. I know it is free, so what can you do? Complain of course.
In the meantime, I should tell you about the two big shows I am doing this weekend. One is in Cobble Hill in a lovely park! Did you know Cobble Hill has the best biscotti in all of Brooklyn? Well it is true. My dad and I are experts on this topic, and we both agree. Of course, we haven't tried the biscotti in Bensonhurst yet. Anyway, back to the shows I am doing. The Cobble Hill show is on Saturday. I will have my signature ironing board display. Gee. And on Sunday, I will be at The Market NYC. You can see more information in this previous post
, and on our WHAT'S NEW
page on the site. Hope to see you there, and tell all your friends! The OBI
combo has been popular at the shows. I will have plenty of everything.
