i apologize to anyone that's e-mailed me in the last week or so. i've been a little too overwhelmed with life/work stuff to wade through my blog e-mail. but i promise to get back to you soon.

lovely design now has these great little packets of paper...perfect for paper crazy me. i am also thrilled by the new black walnut version of their excellent address file.

shoes, shoes, shoes.
these are the stuff of dreams.
except they are real.

i know, steve madden isn't always the best quality...but i really love these.

these are great. so great.

new to me, terra plana makes wonderful shoes.
these are a couple of my favorites.

this week, the boy finished graduate school. i am so so proud of him.
he recently presented his project, only what it is at the nyu itp show. while i was there checking out his great work, he showed me another really interesting project by a classmate, hypothetical drawings about real people. worth checking out.

this book of photography caught my eye this week. did this one.

and, oh yes... how could i forget this one too.

okay, well, while i'm at it - douglas coupland's new book sounds very very interesting.

stamps are so fun to play with. what about this set too?

i'm soothed by the colors and texture of this pillow by lauren sanders.

and in other news:
small, simple, using what you have, appreciating the value of things.
...i think i might be (already...or becoming...not sure) a devotee of lohas. naive does a great job of explaining what it is over on her blog.

interesting things...
+ the goods
+ the guild
+ the brilliance

if you want to see some great dance, you should grab tickets to see miguel gutierrez at dance theater workshop and sam kim at the mulberry street theater...both are a must see.

next time. next time.
