End of Year This & That

I recommend watching: Gasland: A Film By Josh Fox. You can catch it on HBO or via Netflix. Fracking, as is, is bad news.

The New York Subway runs 24/7, which is awesome. But the Paris Metro is more homey and romantic. Visit www.sleepycity.net to see some rarely seen images of the Paris Metro. (via kottke.org). I miss Paris. New York is my soul mate, but Paris was my first love.

The last Nymphoto show introduced a lot of talent. One of my favorite discoveries was Victoria Hely-Hutchinson. A radiant being and a talented photographer. Her work is currently featured over at: www.wipnyc.org.

My love for all things Swedish has not waned. Head to www.style-files.com to check out a contemporary Swedish home.

And talking about all things Swedish, I heart these little dishes made by Karin Eriksson. Perfect to put your tea bag on. Find them at www.manos.bigcartel.com.

You can find some of Karin's ceramics also at ABC Carpet in NYC. by Karin Erikkson

I ♥ NY (Blizzard Edition)

Downtown is the heart of the city. This is where it all began. Diversity is what makes New York. Get on the subway and you can end up in a totally different world, but in the same city. There is quaint and pretty, modern and imposing. But for me there is nothing like the vista of SoHo.
