Once upon a time, I was paid to come up with craft ideas. I figured since it is Halloween, I would share a peek at some of the projects I produced with stylist Karin Lidbeck-Brent for Good Housekeeping last year.

I always wondered about this...

I lived in the West Village for years, and I always wondered about this funny little house on Charles Street. I'm glad The New York Times could shed some light on this mysterious dwelling. However, I'm also a bit surprised it took them this long to get around to it! There's also a slide show right here.

Stuart & Wright

Stuart & Wright, the very chic and very expensive boutique down the street from me, has started a blog. If all their prices were cut in half, I would consider shopping there, but unfortunately, with the price points as they are, I'm just a window licker. If you want to take a peak at their stuff, click here.

No. 7

My dear friend, C.'s boyfriend is one of the owners of a new restaurant in my neighborhood. No. 7 opened back in September, and it's been busy every time I have walked past since. I'd encourage everyone to stop in for a drink or a bite to eat, if you're ever in the neighborhood. As the New Yorker says, the menu is full of, "complicated dishes executed with an effortless air."I'd argue that the interior strikes a similar balance.

Salvage Resources in New York

I just came across this old post from Brownstoner. As Brownstoner notes, there aren't any "secrets or deals," bit it's a good list of shops. Also worth noting is that Olde Good Things seems to be at the Flea every weekend. I saw some good things there last weekend, including some great-looking black doorknobs.

Denyse Schmidt: Yes We Can

I'm off to PA today to knock on some doors for Obama, so I thought I'd share a neat project from Crafts for Obama. This quilt is designed by famed quilter Denyse Schmidt, whom I have admired for many years. You can buy a $10 virtual raffle ticket to support Obama and possibly win the quilt right here.

Deep Thought

Having an architect as one of your co-owners/neighbors in a New York City co-op is really, really handy.

More posts coming soon...

Sorry for the lack of posts lately. I was a little distracted/shaken after my apartment got robbed last week, but mostly I have just been terribly busy at work. I promise to get some new stuff up soon!
