Just wanted to let you know that I have a new site and a new blog! So please visit me over there, since I am not posting here anymore.
Facebook and Twitter!

Facebook page more regularly than here, and blogging on the Lonny Blog each week has been taking the place of my little blog corner of the internet. But not for long, hopefully. I am just starting the process of updating my website and getting ready to sell prints and originals- yahoo! I hope to be hanging around here more, too. In the meantime, here is a fun interview I did on Kate Spade's Behind the Curtain.

I've been wearing out my espadrilles this summer. My friend Jacqui brought back a few perfect pairs from Paris last year and I've been searching for something similar ever since. I found them a few weeks ago (at Urban Outfitters!!)
There is a tiny shop in my neighborhood called Les Toiles du Soleil which sells espadrilles and striped fabrics that look like candy. The company was founded 150 years ago and still makes the happiest fabrics in the traditional way. I might have to get a couple of the these dishtowels to brighten up my kitchen.

Has it really been 2 months?? I have been a busy bee. I feel like the summer is over! Boohoo. Having a girls mini vacation this weekend and I'm looking forward to catching up, barbecuing, and doing a little of this:
I have more summer illustrations over here!

Hunt Slonem's studio is filled with birds and bird paintings. I want to live there. I saw his bird on The Selby.
Look at this MJ bag with birds! It looks like it was inspired by the man himself.
Speaking of bird prints, I almost bought this dress at a little boutique off Lafayette Street.
The first time I saw it I had just had a few Moscow Mules from Pravda around the corner, so I thought it best to revisit it with a clearer head if you know what I mean. The print is a knock off of the Miu Miu prints from Spring (which I LOVED). I ended up there the next day after brunch at Essex ...again with a not so clear head (I swear this is not the norm!) tried it on, and was disappointed that it was just 'eh'. Guess I will have to start stalking ebay for the real thing!

I love the home floor at Bergdorf's. It makes me so happy. Right off the escalator you have John Derian, then a little further down is Kelly Wearstler's little jewel box of a shop within the shop. When I was there last week, I fell in love with the beautiful and glamorous ceramics of Waylande Gregory. See it here. It's a little Klimt, a little deco, a little Hermes-ish. Amazing. You know when you find something that is just SO YOU and exactly what you wish you would have designed in your wildest creative dreams?? I bought this little jade colored box with orange dots and a gold cougar. It is insanely awesome and my new prized possession.

I was recently interviewed for The Inside Source, this site that Ebay puts out. It was fun to make an Ebay wish list (with no budget..ahhh) and do the little paintings to go along with it. They have a lot of great interviews with fashion and home design peops..check it out!

It was a beeeeaauutiful weekend in NY! I spent lots of time on the roof, walked around the Farmer's Market and the West Village, and had a few cocktails on the Lower East Side. A lovely weekend and I'm sad it's over. I've been buying the $3 bunches of daffodils at our corner deli-I can't get enough of them!

We're having the apartment painted this week and I can't even tell you how much thought was put into these 4 colors, so I hope it works out! We're taking a risk and painting our hallway black. Hm. Hope that works out too! I'm going for a Ryan Korban thing. All black and white and faded Persian rugs and lots of art in gilded frames thrown in.
We bought this chair for $45 (!!!) at a New Jersey antique store and had it reupholstered in a black and white awning stripe. We didn't even have to change the wood frame, it's kind of a distressed ivory. Now the hunt for a sofa begins...

The Hot Chocolate Festival at City Bakery takes place in February every year. Not that I need a reason to go to City Bakery. They have a new flavor every day, but I stick to classic, no marshmallow. Some people think it is so sweet and so thick that they can only have one per year. I have already been twice this week. Is it bad to forgo dinner for hot chocolate?
