As evidenced in earlier posts, I like both office supplies and plants. Field Notes apparently read my mind and put together this cute package of three cheerful Field Notes notebooks and a packet of marigold seeds. Perfect for spring!

Weekend Things

Here are some things about my weekend, ish.

1. Last Thursday morning I went to a little farmer’s market down at Bowling Green before work. There were only a few stands, but they all had lovely things and it was overall a very refreshing way to start my day. More pictures of this after the jump.

2. I finally finished my spring garland project. My roommate and I put up Christmas decorations right after Thanksgiving and I only just got around to taking down the Christmas garland and replacing it with something else. Close up pictures after the jump.

3. We threw a party Saturday night that included, among other things, this inflatable palm tree.

4. Today was gorgeous and I spent several hours basking in the sun on my roof. Sometimes just looking at Manhattan from my roof on a beautiful, clear, Spring day makes me fall in love with the city all over again.

Weekend Things

Hello again. Hope everyone had a lovely Easter weekend. Here are some things I did:

1. I went to Kitchen Arts and Letters with my mom. This amazing little book store carries new, used, rare, and out of print books about cooking, food,  and drinking. It’s a wonderfully old-school bookstore and I loved it. Go check it out on Lexington and 95th.

2. While I was at Kitchen Arts and Letters, I go this adorable little book about macarons. I have only tried to make these once with partial success, but now that I have this handbook devoted entirely to the creation and perfection of the macaron, maybe it is time to try again. The book is also available on Amazon.

3. I added two more plants to my collection: an aloe plant because my mother thinks I’ll need it when I burn myself, which I actually did last week making the gooey butter cake, so perhaps she is right; and a pretty little rose bush. Hopefully I won’t kill either of them.

4. I can’t help it; I have to admit that I am an insane Duke basketball fan and we won a national championship last night. So that was a pretty huge part of my weekend.

Apparently the Spring weather has everyone thinking about gardens and gardening. Over the past two days I’ve found multiple blog posts about terrariums and the like.

Bornay Flowers

I can’t help it. I love flowers. They remind me of daffodils from my childhood backyard and Saturday markets in small towns  in Italy and extravagant displays at Harrod’s in London. Good thing I have  Bornay, a gorgeous flower blog, to tide me over until I am wealthy enough to have a constant stream of fresh flowers decorating my apartment.
