snake charmer


just spotted this snake cuff and thought of you...gorgeous.
it's available here for a wee bit of pocket change.

the sun is shining again here and the air is cool
making a perfect LA fall day.
wish we were at a farmer's market collecting goodies for a fabulous feast for tonight.
oh and speaking of feasts, i was treated to an early birthday dinner the other night...
the pasta tasting at osteria mozza complete with wine pairings...divine.

miss you.

my other hat's a turban


it's the perfect winter topper, don't you think?
well, maybe not a WINTER hat, but i've made my decision and that's that. we all should embrace the turban this season. spring 2007 is a lifetime ago, the time is right and i'm bringing it back.

if only someone would post their old satiny prada turban to ebay, i'd be good to go...

so the year was 1993. can this be right?
the year we met on the edge of the rain forest, with a mad sculptor who waxed rhapsodic about bill reid and a department head who was a compulsive painter of butterflies.

and in my mind those first years were all about this guy, who's been kind of out of the limelight the last few. certainly in this one monumental photo town. but i love him still, charlie parker reeboppers et al. and i will be finding a way to sneak out of the house to the cinematheque to catch this film, (yay tamra davis!) (most likely on the third, where i will be with you in spirit.)


ps thanks for the banquet love! make art!

banquet atelier

my darling sarah,

the best breakfast in town

mi amor,

inspired by the saveur magazine you gave me, JB and i went to go try out the best breakfast in town on saturday and it was damn good.
original huevos photo on top from saveur magazine and the one below from my iphone sans jalapenos at la abeja and all for the delicious price of $5.75.

definitely a must on your next visit.

how was your weekend?

o x

p.s. it has been drizzly and grey here making it perfect for comfort food like this.

short and sweet.
here's some bedazzle for you, by jeweler and sculptor klaus burgel.
i particularly like that last necklace and it's semi-precious orbs. kind of great, no?

and yum, ikea. kids eat free at the store this week. maybe we should go get some meatballs while you are here?

counting the hours,

ikea cookbook


if we can't get the cookbook, we can now get the app.

yay ikea! yay sweden and the lovely lady in sneakers!

i am not feeling particular funny today but i am quite happy about this.
thanks for the call yesterday.

eric baker


when you have a moment peruse through some of these great posts from eric baker here.
(when there, click on his images posted for a link)
this ad immediately caught my eye with the same line of text placed randomly like it is raining down on the couple. according to google translator it says 'pack and waterproof pirelli'.

i will be packing and waterproofing this week in anticipication for all the fun this weekend.

don't fly away

a friend shared this beautiful hummingbird rug with me last night at dinner
and i thought of you immediately.
isn't it exquisite?
and of course it was designed by none other than fashion genious Alexander McQueen.
sure wish i had an extra $20,000 kicking around in my bank acct.
actually make that $40,000 so i can buy you one too.
j bird
p.s. love your sugar below
