Textures galore

Hermine is a textile designer in Antwerp and she has some lovely pieces over at her blog, JOURNAL DE JOURS. Her designs are so soft and thoughtful, they feel as if they have come from another era.

Camping in Brooklyn

Somehow I missed this New York Times article on camping in Floyd Bennett Field. I have been there many times (mainly on the way to Fort Tilden for a beach day) but I was unaware that you could sleep over there!  And according to this article, the National Park Service is apparently turning the space into America's largest urban campground. It would be fun to try...maybe?

Humboldt Fog

Happy Monday! If you haven't already tried it, run to your nearest cheese shop and get some award-winning Humboldt Fog.  It is a light and creamy goat cheese made by Cypress Grove Chevre in California. I promise you will like it, even if you are not a huge goat cheese fan. It goes wonderfully with honey and a crisp white wine. I bought a huge chunk of it in Greenport, Long Island this weekend and was reminded of how much I love this cheese! Doesn't it look like a birthday cake?

Dreaming of...

It is sweltering in New York today, so I am dreaming of cooler places. The grass is always greener somewhere, isn't it? Here are some beautiful images of Sweden by Alexandra. A nice hike and a picnic lunch would be nice...

MANIMAL has some really cool Native-American inspired necklaces, moccasins and even baby booties. Everything is handmade in Brooklyn by designer Kristen Lombardi (who started the line after a trip to the Southwest). They also have some vegan pieces, how thoughtful!

Bottled Flowers

Here are some beautiful works by artist Makoto Azuma. In his latest series, Azuma overstuffs glass bottles with dying flowers and then fills them with water, as if they were being preserved. Even though they are short-lived, they are stunning. You can see more here.
