hot for dot

Can you tell I'm ready for Spring? At least a little Spring dressing (under a sweater and coat) will satiate me for a little while longer.

A Date with Kate

I love the Kate Spade print ads, especially for her china. They really work to brighten up a winter day. It also doesn't hurt that they're having their "sample sale" online. Still a bit out of the budget, but a girl can dream.

things to come...

I love the current homepage of ModCloth. These paper flowers are a welcome reminder that Spring is around the corner.

In my Dreams

If I had these boots I would be a happier person. I would be richer, thinner, smarter, and everyone would love me.

Last weekend I saw the Magnetic Fields at BAM. It was so enjoyable! I miss being connected to the music scene. I used to be so much cooler. It's silly to live in Brooklyn and not know what's going on down the street. I need to check out the music at BAMcafe soon.

Jazz, Man

Tonight is the opening for the Jazz Loft Exhibition at the Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center. It will be exciting to see it all put together after being a part of the installation process for the last 2 weeks. My favorite photos are the ones he took out the window. City watching out an upper story window is an experience all New Yorkers can relate to.

a travelin

I'm pretty content to be broke most of the time, but if I had more money I'd definitely enjoy traveling more. I enjoyed dreaming about Amsterdam while looking at it covered by a blanket of snow. Have I mentioned that I love snow?

All You Need is Love

The hubby made me heart shaped pizza for our first Valentine's Day together. This year we made a cherry pie with heart shaped crust. We're too adorable for words.

fun with food

I love these food creatures. It's not a coincidence that my favorites involve garlic and cheese.

work time = play time

As an excellent start to NY fashion week, I got to poke around in the Museum of the City of New York's fashion archives. It's quite a closet. I spent some quality time in the '60s. It made me vow to dress for success every day. Here's some pieces that took my breath away.

Yes, please!

Snow & the City

A kid's gotta be resourceful when there's no front yard!

letterpress love

These affordable cards are a timely find. The second one is especially convenient for those of us with Southern Valentines.

paper cut

That's my house! I'm actually further west than that, but as decorative maps go, this one's pretty cool.

I am solidly in the midst of the Winter blues. Plus I've had a slow healing injury impeding my ability to workout. I am hoping this upcoming storm will take a turn north so we get walloped in Brooklyn. A coating of snow makes everything look so peaceful and lovely. Then I will stop feeling like this:

No Expectations

I haven't watched the Grammy's in about 10 years, but found myself with nothing better to do last night, so I tuned in. It was surprisingly enjoyable. The biggest surprise of the night came from an artist who prompts me to change the station like a reflex- Pink. I find her lyrics to be immature and whiny. Last night I learned that she can sing, and she's an adult. I urge her to keep it up.

I still don't get Taylor Swift though.
