Not many cabins in the woods are as creatively adapted and decorated as this. Very little has been done to change the character from its original use as a hunting shelter for 4 guys.Shows what a female decorator can do for herself. I would never have thought to have a carved mask next to an old stall shower. Dinner was pretty swell as well.

So much to do around here. Please note Interior Inspirations 2012 the weekend of October 26-28 to benefit Child and Family Agency.
Another great haircut by Celeste.

Real Art Ways: Hartford,CT

Fun idea to have a different RAW poster on each stall.Saw Sleepwalk With Me. Had some good moments and certainly shows how unfunny the life of a stand up comic can be.

Vito’s By The Park: Hartford, CT

Strange mishmash of furnishings here. Delightful lunch with my son- he had Caesar salad and steamed mussels and I had a beet,pistachio and goat cheese salad on arugula- outside in the sunshine. Had to share with the fall bees, but there was enough to go around.It proved a perfect place to meet to pass back his dog who I have watched for the past 10 days. Two hours for him to drive and 45 minutes for me, plus a free lunch.Seems totally fair to me.

I feel sorry for anyone who has never been to a Dinner on The Farm.The white tents with flags that make it seem like you have arrived in Camelot and the food which makes you feel like you are at a days long banquest. Always meet new people at the long farm tables and learn something about farming, community and generosity from everyone involved.

Looks like one of the former artists left her face cleanser. I have no idea what the Japanese label says. Do you?

Really? Danger? 480 Volts. Who do they think is going to be sticking anything in the heat grate? Couldn't we just get a soap and clean running water?

New Museum: Manhattan, NY

Suprisingly for an institution which displays such challenging art, the restroom was exceedingly bland. I thought my leggings would be the most interesting shot.

Lure: Manhattan,NY

Posted in Strange |

Dark shot, I know. Thought this double door entrance, rather like going into a restaurant kitchen, was unusual. Lure, as in the kind used to catch fish, is a subterranian fish place- imaginative menu and quite good- which feels like an ocean liner dining room with big port hole windows revealing the legs of street level pedestrians rather than passing aquatic life.If only we could get rid of the loud music which accompanies most dining experiences these days.I don't mind a good movie soundtrack, though sometimes even they are needlessly intrusive,but don't like feeling like I am living with one.

This bathroom is so snug there is not even an inch between the sink and the arc of the door. I liked the two blue drawings of trains that were done by a family member. I even liked meeting Jim Crawford, our district's candidate for state senate.I am not inclined to go to political events,but was happy I did.Even signed up to make calls and help get out the vote.
