Eating, shopping, eating, watching, walking, eating, horses, eating horses, looking, short of breathe, eating, home.

Audrey Cantwell

"I cut and I sew and I save the more fortunate results," is Audrey Cantwell's motto. Checkout her store on Etsy-Black Market Baby.
I couldn't ask for anything more besides face paint and cloaks for the chilly days to come.

Thank you Karyn!

Aboubakar Fofana!

Aboubakar Fofana at Design Africa is keeping the traditional process of Indigo Vat dyeing in Mali alive by weaving his own organic cottons into scarves and home design. Fofana's work is available at Amaridian on Howard and Crosby street. I highly recommend checking it out, truly inspiring one of a kind pieces.

Positive Mental Attitude

This week I was lucky enough to be included at CRAFT night with Liz from Hey We Made It!

We explored the world of pickling while eating peanut butter stuffed pretzels and comparing dirty feet. We pickled beets, cabbage, cucumber, asparagus and garlic and supposedly we have to wait for 2 weeks?! Rumor has it that some nights include homemade tattoos from Nurit!

Johnny's Bird

I've been too busy with summer right around the corner to focus on anything for longer than 2 seconds... BUT Johnny's Bird caught my eye. I don't know much but will investigate more. I hear she likes smoking a lot, drinking a ton and talking a bunch.
