Time to give thanks

In lieu of Sandy's destruction, we will be donating 15% of all sales made this month to http://www.redcross.org/sandy.  Our thoughts go out to those in need.

My parents are still without power in their home.  Fortunately they do have places to go to with power and internet.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I really miss autumn, when all  the leaves are ablaze, the air is crisp and clear, the sound for crackling leaves under the feet.  Enjoy for us here living 3 degrees south of the equator.

This is the time to think about be especially thankful for our health, family and friends.




Get an early start on Christmas shopping.  35% off all stock items until Nov 10th!

New York Art



I love being in a creative environment, and it's a treat to visit my friends in their creative spaces.  It really inspires me to start painting again.



Muralist Vicki Khuzami in her studio in Bushwick, Brooklyn.


Painter Denise Shaw in her studio in Soho.




Rifka Milder in midtown.


Paton Miller in Southampton.








artist/fashion designer/curator: Jesse T. Elliott in his atelier in Greenport, LI.





At my favorite museum, the Metropolitan:  Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations at the Met. 
 I never knew how avant garde Schiaparelli was, I may have a favorite new designer.



Glass balls adhered onto a taxidermied deer, no joke! In the Japanese gallery.







Great selection of Indonesian Majupahit jewelry.

And street art galore outside the Met, on the streets of Soho and LES.

The bigger they come...

Americans do like things super-sized, just check out these bikes!





Seen on the Streets of Soho, NYC


One of the best things about NYC is it's easy to be anonymous, and wear absolutely whatever you want and no one will bat an eye lash!
black & white theme in stripes, dots and check (on the shoes).

pajama bottoms and Chanel bag with runners no less


all purple on top.

There's no place like home....

It was a very stimulating one month in NYC, and as sad as it is to leave it, it's always so sweet to come back to Paradise.  HOME SWEET HOME.
