The Pillow Story

One of the best parts of my job is communicating directly with customers. I love when they share their stories:
It's a wedding gift for my cousin and her husband ... a white pillow cover with a red 6 on it, in memory of her brother, who was a firefighter in Engine 6 and died in the WTC attacks.

Nautical Decor: Fleet

I love how well these pendants combine modern and nautical.

'Fleet Objects is the Vancouver based design studio of Zoe Garred. Working primarily with natural materials, Zoe's passion lies in creating objects that are useful but abstract in form and application. By leaving the function of her pieces open to interpretation she invites the user to define the object's significance.'

Brooklyn Blossoms

Although the Brooklyn Botanical Garden hosted Sakura Matsui aka the Cherry Blossom Festival last weekend, the CherryWatch Blossom Status Map shows that the trees lining the Cherry Esplanade are still in first bloom.

I went a couple of weekends ago and caught the Japanese Garden in full bloom. Just beautiful - even on a cloudy day.

Pssst: When there aren't special programs running entry to the BBG is FREE on Sat mornings from 10 am - noon. More info on hours and admissions here.
