i've posted before about our need for art our giant white walls...i mean c'mon 2 'artsy-fartsy' people like ourselves with no art? we're still really digging that "infalated-deflated" project and they keep coming up with new pieces....here's some new ones we're now considering (for a series of 3)
last weekend we drove to sunset park...which is about 10 minutes south of us. i'd heard about a store that specializes in 'fake meats' which is in sunset park's chinatown. it was totally weird and cool. the family that owns our 'meat' store were super sweet with lots of little kids running around. i really loved that so many things were formed into the shape of the animal they were supposed to represent...like lobsters, ducks, chickens and fishes. cute!
we felt like we were in another country with all the signs without a stitch of english printed on them. alot of weird businesses in general i dont even know what some of them were.
poor willis-y. not looking too great after coming home from the vet. he had some little growths on his skin removed which might be cancerous. send good thoughts over.
he's doing great and is on the mend....just a little wishy washy.
i love this idea that Stockholm-based Pretty Pegs have come up with. an online shop offering a leg collection that works as an alternative to the standard Ikea legs...we all love ikea furniture but some of the legs are pretty blah...why not dress 'em up?
"Our vision is to create a new way of presenting rooms by adding color and personality to furniture," they say. "And just like your favorite pair of shoes, they complete the look."
it's been absolutely perfect spring weather around here lately....and the weekend presented a great opportunity to get some planting and yard work done and hang up my new birthday windchime in the gorgeous april sunshine.
