went to a very cute restaurant for breakfast on sunday called Northeast kingdom in Bushwick Brooklyn. Sitting right by me looking veru chic was that model called hannilore knuts do you remember her?
and great graffiti
Oh what a great sunday ,All orange with lots of apple making at west tree farm . Albert saw a pig and couldnt believe they were alve and not just in story book s.
It was a perfect start to the pumpkin festivities .
We all went on a tractor ride too . all very un-health and safety -great !,( i just hope they dont go all next year as i am sure they would close it down!)
Its amazing what crazy things you can find here in the etsy store!
can you guess what it is???
check out this blog www.1000 mermaids.tumblr.com by a little boy age 6. Such a talented artist.

i i rest my case.
i just love a good old fashioned fashion rally .
Save the garment district rally in nyc .
And one looks like an embroidered plackard!
I just wonder how many newyorkers turned up in their designer ‘made in china’ clothes…

i am very excited about going to see Angela Lizons HUGE paintings of cats .
Look at them . How utterly great . I hope these ones feature at the exeter contemporay arts show ,
tracy, at the wonderful 149 sullivan st blog has just done a post about a really nice fuzzy gilet which has me re-thinking my gilet debate.
I have been asking myself this question over the last couple of weeks , now the weather is getting crispier…
‘is it still cool to wear a gilet?”
Yeah,nay or eh?
( and,yes, i would wear the one on traceys’ blog)
i know i posted this up a while back , but i couldnt find a photo of the nyc dolls. Here they are … tell me, does donna get bad hair days and wear knitted dresses?
…i’d probably ruin the rainbow effect anyway .
so ,im not sure if you get this in nyc . its about 3 weeks old .
But youve got to see this lovely girl stacey . From Dagenham . Love her . And shes getting better .
(what s with the widescreen? its ruining my layout.man.)
my friend ellen got married to her lovely man Yaron in south london on thursday
it was a very perfect wedding . small and intimate.
Those kittens were at the pet resue center. they were all off to a good home. But seperatley .
The rest of the animals that i could have in my imaginary fake zoo, are avaliable at Libertys.
…did the recycling center get so damn expensive? £125 for a victorian sofa,£65 for a broken draw 1960 (great ) side table. (ooh just look at those legs!)
I mean its drepressing. Sometime i hate how much people are on to things now. Takes the excitement out of hunting.
i think im showing my age.
i love a shell . Giant shells are obviously amazing. I love love Old giant shells , you know the ones that shouldnt really be taken out of the ocean all those years ago.
But look at this shell house found in a hideaway spot ( maybe to hide from the shell police) in bicton park,devon . Built in 1845 . Cute . Want one .
the best pizza in Brooklyn. wine in jam jars, amazing food , great atmosphere, located at Bogart and Moore in Bushwick.
arnt they lovely. .. they are selling at Ochre on Broome st for at least $300 each.
i dont think he misses Manhattan.
i was looking through some old tat for inspiration and i chanced upon this rather glamourous sweater… not very PC though!! i have to say the embroidery was beautiful and these photos do not do it justice. Maybe i will take my good camera in to work tomorrow and get some good pics for you.
this is what i want to get you for your birthday ( but ive left it a bit late as usual)
A priceless necklace for a priceless sister. Of course money is no object when it comes to family ….

this week i think i over did both of them and now thinking of cutting them up !
but they’re kinda cute and it was good to be illustrating again ,after so long…

you know how much i love a collage and i thought this was rather spectacular..
to buy her , but i just didnt want the sofa .I couldn’t part her from the sofa ,could i? she complements it so well ,dont you think?
And i shouldnt be buying any more dolls as i AM A GROWN WOMAN for god sake . But she was great . And i loved her part teletubby head.
