it’s rare for me to see a newly constructed apartment building that i like… but oh wow, i love the new flowerbox building in the east village. i saw it about a month ago and was really enamored by it. the flower boxes will be changed twice a year for the seasons, and were created by verdant garden designs (check out their website for more beautiful city-garden photos).

wow, this week really flew by!
thanks kathleen for posting about this beautiful new calendar at little otsu.
little otsu is one of the best online shops for gifts. maybe i’ll start a list here of my favorite online shops for holiday presents.

also, amanda barr, a favorite artist of mine, is having a show at motel gallery, called case of the wolves (photo above). wish i could see it.
