union square holiday market

each year various vendors set up shop amidst union square to offer holiday cheer and, more importantly, goods. i am a sucker for street fairs and outdoor markets, so i strolled through. some cute stuff. the interesting thing about getting older is that i don't get gifts - or give gifts anymore really, so holiday markets are more entertainment than chore. i think i will head back later in december and replace my MTA wallet, which i adore - but is getting a bit frayed & faded. birthday present to myself. :)

seasonal delights

autumn is a beautiful time of year. the foliage is lovely, the crisp air is refreshing, and it signifies the coming of the holidays and a new year -- a new start.

krazy kamar

my friend at nokia -- and "the other brown guy in the office" :) -- kamar had a birthday shin-dig this weekend. alot of work folks, which is not my first choice for a party. i kinda see enough of them at the office, and conversations end up being centered around phones and company politics, ya know? but kamar is a great guy - so i journeyed out to wish him well as he embarks on his 37th year on earth. though he was a bit under the weather, he still did it up for the crowd. and kamar's wife jennifer found a great lil spot on rivington, jadis, for the festivities. i'll definitely head back there for the bacon-wrapped scallops! that's good eatin'!

city streets

most of you are aware that i really enjoy living in new york. the sounds, the people, the places, the smells... all of it. occasionally i find myself inspired to take a photo of what makes nyc beautiful to me. this is one of those photos. prince and mott. my good friend john just opened a wonderful haberdashery store named Lugo around the corner from where this photo was taken. stop by if you're in the neighborhood.

Patti's new country house

My friend Patti bought a home in Callicoon, NY. She invited me up this weekend to help her put some finishing touches on it. We ate and drank with the locals, bought curtains/ shades/ pillows/ art, among other stuff, and hung out in the hot tub. The best part of the place is the deck which overlooks her 6 acre property. I was happy to have the opportuntity to see it and contribute a bit of my vision to how it looks. You can also visit Patti's (i'm building my new home blog) : country house - country mouse.
