NYC store crush

I have a big crush on Auto, a design shop nestled in the meatpacking district, just opposite the newly refurbished High Line. It took all my will power to resist purchasing almost every item in sight. 
Look at this charm necklace...

I fell in love with, Ronni Kappos, designs. She uses vintage glass beads in her stunning and fun necklaces, bracelets and earrings. 

The throws and bedding are lovely too. 
Beautiful earrings...

Off the Wall

I love this story in the Times today about Gallerists selling art out of their homes. I also saw this concept on Design Sponge
Supermarket Sarah (as her store is known) has a similar concept; she sells everything you see on her walls, whatever you fancy, it can be yours.

A good friend of mine is getting married in January, I suggested she check out some of the really pretty hair clips from Anthropologie, as there is a wealth of good looking feathers, rhinestones, and flowers for the hair. I think the ones below are so feminine, and can be worn for any festive occasion. Love. them. Happy Monday. xo

I'm dreaming of a white christmas and morning buns from La Farine

I love visiting my twin sister Lisa in Berkeley, we are going there for Christmas this year and I can't wait. One of the many many things I love about visiting her are the stunning snowfalls in Tahoe, spending time with my brother in law and three nephews and morning buns at La Farine. I've searched far and wide in New York for a bakery that equals that of La Farine. I've found some close ones, including the wonderful Levain Bakery on 74th and Amsterdam, they have to die for chocolate brioches, and valerhona chocolate filled sour dough rolls, just delicious. But my much sought after 'La Farine tasting morning buns' elude me in this great city.

This cute bag looks like my recipe list (or part of the lengthy little list) today as we braved the famous Fairway Market, a mere 24 hours before Thanksgiving.
So, a very happy thanksgiving to all!

I've been seeing lots and lots of garlands on the blogosphere, these are especially pretty and a good price point. I would like to think I could make these but I know that may or may not happen. So in the case of the latter, I can order them here.
PS am thinking of using these in the nursery...more on that to come.

My commute

I have always tried to keep any commute to work very short or at the least, a nice walk. In the past I have ridden a motorbike through the streets of Saigon (always stopping for my morning 'breakfast' of pho soup). I have taken the not so exciting bus to work in Singapore and have walked up one flight of stairs when I worked from home. And I have almost always walked to work in New York City. I love the walk, right straight through gorgeous Central Park. I feel like it calms my mind before work and gets the blood pumping at the same time. Here are some shots of my commute this morning.

blue stockings

I've grown to love the colder months for a variety of reasons, but mainly because I get to wear tights! As a serial dress and skirt wearer tights bring me unbridled joy.
