sweet rose

this week: i made a peppermint unicorn holiday ornament
finally took a drive-by photo of the cool third eye mural on beverly
fell in love with runway boutique on 807 la brea
(has colorful/graphic african fabric dresses handmade by local designers)
aluma on etsy is another great find
my ice creme fraiche with elderberry pink peppercorn + new silver sven clogs (: 
 sid got 2 scoops of seasonal strawberry on a chocolate waffle cone and we adore the chalkboard paint mural

l.a. sunday snapshots

sundays are always a day off with the kids to wander downtown. there are a handful of boys who gather to meet  early morning at marat daukayev for ballet (my son included). very proud to say that los angeles does have a ballet: lab.  past the odd silver head on la brea at cbs studios, waiting for our banana almond 'manna'shakes at beverly hills juice. window shopping a funky cool jenny smith doll at tweak, lovely kusmi tea display and one block walk to west elm to drop off more mobiles(only a few, get one before they're gone!)  huge lunch at farmers market the grove, then back home to suburbia  where the heat is in the sweltering 90's. inspired and happy, i started making a yeti with a gold tooth, a holiday ornament to channel in the colder months... he's not ready yet... just a peek of more to come

casa de fruta

wouldn't it be cool to live in a house of fruit?!!
labor day week-end lemon stand at the l.a. county fair, a sneak peek of collaboration art with sandra eterovic, this roadside pit stop, a must!= casa de fruta (when traveling between los angeles and san francisco)
