NYC, Mi Amor

When in NY, if a stranger........

We're talking to you!

Do you understand how much I love pallets?  Especially, NYC pallets.

Colors this season?

Above and below, ground zero + 11 years

Chinese people are pretty direct, aren't they?  (Kinda like New Yorkers.)

  Would you get your hair done here?

Before and After

These are NOT the fruit we picked over the weekend.

But I have to make roast fruit at this time of year without fail.

As much as I adore flaky pastry, this is a perfectly delicious way of enjoying summer without so many calories.  And even though there's creme fraiche in the fridge, these fruit really do not need it.

England and Italy are going into extra time....penalty shootout coming up.  Some things about certain  summers don't change, do they?  

Except maybe the hairstyles!

Life in Southern California

We're going fruit-picking this weekend.  What are your plans?  Hope it's a good one!

Random Capture - NYC Now

It's true.  We traded flying off in one direction for flying off in another....

Visited NYC for the first time since 2009.

The spring light was lovely.  My how that city has changed since we left it in '05.

The lower East side was a revelation.  And we didn't even make it to Brooklyn.

Loved the walls at Casimir on Ave. B.

Fashion-ey Friday

Paris street style via "Inspired" by Tamar

This look seems perfect for the still murky early summer days so many of us are having.  I just adore it.  Though I could never wear it, (sigh!) I'm not tall enough.  What do you think?

Oh!  And have a wonderful weekend will you?

It's gloomy today in L.A.   Which makes me think back to 10 days ago........

When someone had a Jubilee.......... to celebrate 60 years on a throne.

Some cared an awful lot about this.

Others not so much.

 There were flotillas.

And a little tom-foolery.  

Tell me, could you be a monarchist?

Spring Becomes Summer

It happened so quickly!  Here's a snapshot from my spring.  Tell me about yours?
