there is nothing like seeing a great handbag in action.

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.

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!

, we got so involved in eating that I forgot to take pictures of the rest of the meal. So my husband and I "re-enacted" one of the courses last night: the pizza! It was tasty all over again. The things I do for this blog.

Here was the menu for the rest of our TG feast.

thin crust pizza
