giving thanks

yesterday was turkey day here in the us of a, officially marking the start of the christmas shopping season. today is actually called black friday convincing me to stay in and eat leftovers all day but if i was to venture out into the shopping madness, it would be in these.

crazy shoes and beautiful you.

garden of earthly delights

I love love love Calder, and have seen that youtube bit before -
maybe at Capilano?

And since you are back in NY, what about this?
Martha Clarke's "Garden of Earthly Delights"?
I'm intrigued...


PS I was also just looking at this book, Madeline and the Cats of Rome, by Ludwig's grandson.
Universe's collide once again...

alexander calder

my apologies baronessa for being awol.
have been busy with Belle Heir and had the lovely AV visiting here.
we did make it to the Whitney where there is an
Alexander Calder show on including these whimsical wire portraits

and a great little film
of him performing his circus.
there is a clip here for you and cy to enjoy.

the circus pieces all so beautifully handcrafted by him and also on display. really fantastic!

we then headed over to the Carlyle hotel for a martini at Bemelman's Bar where the Madeline creator was commissioned to decorate and has created some magical murals in the space.
we commented on how much you would like it and toasted you.
