i shouldn't call this a junk shop...more of a treasure trove of old weird stuff. while visiting the parents in florida (insert 'old weird stuff' joke here? no!) we visited a bunch of antique store in sweet town (city?) of melbourne. didn't buy anything but couldn't help snagging some photos of what i could have bought tons of.
we've been on the hunt for some large art for above the staircase for some time now. as you may know, that large art cost a fortune! we're diy/artsy people...let's just make our own! a few years ago we saw a great artist during the gowanus artist studio tour who used resin/epoxy to make gorgeous, glossy, abstract landscapes. so this past weekend chris did some tests with a bunch of supplies he's been collecting in preparation for doing his own large gorgeous glossy abstract paintings.
after a lovely sunday brunch in williamsburg with our friend mark, we walked around the 'hood aimlessly and stumbled upon the gorgeous new wythe hotel...which opened just a few days later. amazing details in this old factory building. even though i have no pics of the rooms i still want to sleep over! plus the sign outside is killer!
