Charley Harper

I love Charley Harper's illustrations and have been dying to get his book, An Illustrated Life.
I was lucky enough to get it as a gift for Christmas (thanks dad) and can't stop looking at all it.
Clever, charming, and crisp.
Hope that everyone is having a lovely holiday!!

my very favorite christmas classics

While I am a huge fan of claymation Rudolph and Mr. Charlie brown, these are my real favorites. Someone in my family, not sure who, gave me tapes of these when I was little and I was hooked. They are often not PC, but so dear, clever, and fun to watch.
My favorite is Dave Fleischer's "Somewhere in Dreamland",
but they are all really good. Ha

claymation nina

I'm on fuego!

Not a new store, but new to me.
Fuego 718 carries goodies and treasures from around the world. The owner travels everywhere from Mexico to Cambodia for all sorts of hand crafted fun. Great place for gift giving. I am a big fan of anything Day of the Dead, but they also have beautiful patchwork stuffed animals and decoupage flasks. Check it out.

Pip-Squeak Chapeau Etc.

You must must look at their website and/or go to their store. Just beautifully easy clothing and accessories accompanied by fun little items (like the great clay waffles). The space is lovely and airy, as are the clothes. Check out their site and blog

while there........
I also ran into Greenpoint based cake master and author, Sara Magid. I recognized her from her blog and am sure that she thought that I was a crazy person when I was gushing about her cakes, but if you have not heard of her, check out her site I am in love with her gold dusted interpretation of twinkies.

Amazing day in Greenpoint with my friend Dominga

Started with a quick stop by the Peter Pan Donut Shop for some coffee and yummies. It is the cutest cutest little place. The donuts are old fashioned and amazing.

Made it by Le Grenier Antiques and Housewares ( It was my first time there and I cannot wait to go back. In addition to beautiful antiques and curiosities, they also carry some really great pillows and Austin Press Stationary (which I love
No trip to Greenpoint is complete without a trip to Word. They do a really amazing job editing their book selection, but I am always drawn to the children's section . They carry so many of my favorite books from growing up, but they also showcase some beautifully illustrated new ones that I can't wait to give as gifts to friends with wee ones.

baby goat...the gift that keeps on giving

need a gift for the person who has everything???
why not a pig, some honey bees, or a share of a cow in their honor?
Go to and you can buy livestock etc. for families around the world.
Some of you on my feed still have to feign surprise when you get your llama certificate.

I love you, janeane garofalo

just caught her 1996 standup act on TV and while I have seen it before, it was just a nice little reminder of how awesome she is. I know it is not her gig, but aside from being wicked smart, i also find her to be very pretty. Made me miss the 90s a little....reality bites, my lunch box purse and liz phair. :)

Jane Birkin

there is very little about her wardrobe in the 60s that seems dated, even now.
just lovely and effortless.
big sigh....

hey yo etsy store ever

I am sucker for anything nostalgic and I am so excited to have found this shop on etsy.
It has all of the best childhood party trimmings. I can't wait to order some for my next party.
