oh and...

I made blood orange and cherry cream scones based on eat, make, read's recipe! and they were YUM.

salvaged and plotted

This weekend, I inaugurated Spring by preparing to build my rooftop garden. Growing your own veggies is all the rage, everyone's doing it including Michelle Obama.

I was first inspired to make my own Salad garden in last year's Readymade Magazine's guide to building your own Backyard Salad Bar. Now is the time to start sowing your seeds!!

After doing my research and being re-inspired after watching this segment on the Martha Stewart Show, this weekend was spent prepping my bed of salad greens. Civil Eats reminded me that there's Build It Green in Queens where I can find reusuable lumber and other miscellaneous materials to build my garden.
Here is what I found there...

reminds me of Yogi the Bear!

strange straw car...


Follow this blog in the next couple of weeks to view my progress on the garden. Next weekend, I build the bed and sow the seeds!

I can't wait to see this. Directed by Sam Mendes and written by Dave Eggers and Vendela Vida. Looks awesome and John Kransinski in some glasses and a beard... sigh.

Master of Suspense

Love the Fall '09 Lookbook for Lorick. Shot by Tom Hines and inspired by Godard and Hitchcock. I'm a huge fan of both Godard and Hitchcock, these images remind me of "Rear Window." Grace Kelly was absolutely gorgeous in that.

I love this image, I don't know why I like eerie posed women...

Mr. Maker, please meet Mr. Speasmaker

This weekend, I had the pleasure of being visited by Mr. Joel Speasmaker. We went to Mike Perry's show, hung out, ate food, and drank. It was good times. Not only is Joel a talented graphic designer but he's pretty awesome, multi-faceted fella and am anticipating his (hopefully permanent) return.
