Lost and Found Table and Stools

 Very whimsical and fun pieces, designed by & MADE that would liven up any drab apartment. A  mixed construction of solid timbers and cast-off furniture pieces, the stools "reflect the throw-away culture of today".  I love how the rustic and refined design elements play against each other.  

Your stockings could get ruined if caught on the sides of the stool, but only in the colder months! Looks like they are only available in the UK. Drat.

Paperbag Waist

Tres mignon!  Not sure if I can pull it off because of my height, but will try this look... 

LOVE the above Chloe skirt, but $975 at Saks--a wee bit pricey.  I bought this Mink Pink dress instead...See below:

Simple Pleasures

Domestic bliss. 

Designed by Swedish artist, Lotta Kuhlhorn, these towels beat the faded ones I have hanging limp on my refrigerator handle and would absolutely sing in any  kitchen... 

The brilliant color and strong graphics stand out, similar to this striking Marimekko print.  The Scandinavian  design sensibility of  marrying form and function, turning everyday objects into art is something to be admired.  

Unfortunately, they are all sold out!

My conscience and wallet would like me to grow more vegetables in my apartment.

The Crack Pie at Momofuku's Milk Bar

The woman behind the register mentioned that the pie was made of butter, cream, sugar, cornflour and maybe one or two other ingredients. I can't believe something made so simply can taste so amazing. Appropriately named and highly addictive.

Been There, Done That

This little owl's expression is perfect and priceless.  I want to create a mask of him and wear it while walking around the LES. By-product of photoshopping or not--I kinda love this site and its off-beat commentary.

Sandwich Sponge

Generally, my threshold for soggy bread is low (i.e., overly ketchup-ed hamburger buns, maple-syrup drenched french toast, etc...). But in dish-sponge form? Exceptions must be made...

This guy knows his neighborhood. Kinda long, but worth it for a few chuckles.

I Dig Spike Jonze, But...

I realize it's just a teaser trailer and Where the Wild Things Are doesn't get its release till October 16,2009 , but I am fearful that this movie will SUCK.   Spike Jonze has an incredible eye, so the photography looks lush (based on the teaser) and overall visuals I'm sure will prove noteworthy (Who isn't a sucker for wide-shots with the nostalgic glow of that warm sunlight?).   It seems like the film could represent the adventure of  The Princess Bride meets the schmaltz of The Never-Ending-Story meets the boyish fantasy of Time Bandits. Hmmmm, doesn't sound too bad...It's just that everybody freaking loves this trailer and maybe I'm just being contrarian. This adaptation has the potential to be the best of those films or a freaking shitshow.  Time will tell...
