These wintery images are from Sandra Juto who I wrote about yesterday. They take my breath away and make me happier about the cold weather.

Also if you are maybe sitting at a desk somewhere wishing to read something different and delightful read this ode to Albertson's grocery store by Seattle artist/writer/cartoonist/filmmaker Molly Norris. I found out about Molly last weekend at the EDGE film reception. She's making a documentary about indie pop-ers Katherine Hepburn's Voice.
La Danse by Frederick Wiseman is playing at Northwest Film Forum until Dec. 16 (wait that's today!)

2 hours and 40 minutes of purifying beauty. Go go go!

I love Sandra Juto's work. The coffee pots remind me of Erin's apartment in NY.

At the Brooklyn Flea's Gifted Market I came across the reclaimed sail bags and odds and ends made by Katherine Rasmussen of reiter8

Watch an interview with her at The Storque (Etsy's blog)

she also makes x-mas stockings out of sails~

I'm in love with these fruit and veggie bags from Seattle's Wonder Thunder. And equally in love with the product description:

"Take to the farmer's market to bag your apples, cabbage, limes, lettuce, snap peas, or radishes without that horrible plastic bag guilt. Perfect for the bulk aisle of the grocery store for lugging home a bunch of bulk cereal, rice, pasta, flour, or even gummy sharks and chocolate bits."

Items at Yellow Owl Workshop are making me wish for warmer weather. For once I can't complain about the lack of sun in Seattle but it's COLD.

We made gingersnaps last night. And then we turned them into dulce de leche-gingersnap -sandwich-cookies!

Looking forward to the Urban Craft Uprising this weekend in Seattle. I've scoped out some of the vendors:

Love these table linens by Dinah Coops

Neon whimsy at Apak Studio (pictured)

Modern apples at Lulu Dee Letterpress

It's gonna be good.
Yep. It's Friday. Been checking out the sweet/saucy patterns at Sublime Stitching (above).

I like the Krazy Kitchen pattern too...makes me want to go out for breakfast right now~

Will post NY pictures soon. It was an amazing trip. The best.
