fun : happiness is ...


the last storm before the weekend ...
gave the sky a pink glow at 8:45 pm. left from the west, right the east.


the high line park ...
is just wonderful. the standard hotel was built over the park and there are reports people can be seen having 'relations' in the windows. scott was concerned as there were so many kids in the park and took it upon himself to inspect each side. boys!


the chelsea market ...
is fantastic and a must visit. aren't these obama cookies from eleni's too cool to eat? most of my photos from the market were terrible, so i guess we'll just have to go back ;).


finishing projects ...
when they work out as planned is terrific! i wanted to make a 'duvet-type' cover for our chenille bath rug and this one actually fits. yay! alicia's tutorial was great for the patchwork-top using vintage sheets. and, we outgrew the art display board almost as soon as it was done - ugh! these art wires took me quite a while to arrange and required complicated mathematical formulas, tape, and lots of staring at mav's to get them just right. i wanted them to be super-straight, so please don't tell me if they're not ;).

what's making you happy these days? do tell!

The bathmat is awesome! And that is really the perfect application for that technique. With some terry cloth on back? You are a genius!

This is the most beautiful bathmat I've ever seen! It would be very hard for me to use it with the all the work that went into it. I'm really glad you did though. It is such a treat to see.Perfect eye candy. Thank You

cindy : quaint said...

elise, i am the same way. if i bought the mat i would probably put plastic on top. i guess since i made it i can always make another one. but, i hope i don't have to!

I'll have to check out the markets in Chelsea. And thanks for your words of encouragement about our move. There are so many areas in NYC that just sound so great. Will be tough to make a final decision :)

this post makes me happy! everything about it is so artful - i can't get over those obama cookies! never would have guessed!

ambika said...

That picture of the sky at the same time from 2 directions so makes me think of Seattle--though it's usually differing shades of gray!

Those cookies are too neat.
