Little treasures from last weekend

I am still enjoying bits and bites (literal sense!) of last weekend, to procrastinate as much as I can...
'cause this weekend I am moving from the LES to Hell's Kitchen! It will be very exciting, but also very tiring.

On the way to Philadelphia...
My booty @ "Nice Things", lovely store and fun gals there!!!
Button from Silvia, my crafty (and of course silly) friend! :)
... and decadent New Orleans pecan pralines!
Doubly delicious because part of the proceeds will be donated to the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

OK, time to pack now...

From a backyard

My weekend in Philadelphia has been exceptionally good.
In a backyard, I found a whole world...
More discoveries to come...

1st month and 500+ views!

Phew, got back just in time!
Today Upgemini is 1 month old and had 500+ views so far.
Hope you are enjoying it :)

How to cheer up a magician

Awww he looks so tired after hours of illusions and prestidigitations
(I bet, just spelling this word makes me tired!)
Do you think that a rabbit to put in his hat
would cheer him up?

Gray, why not?

Who said gray is not a cheerful color?
Doesn't she have looks that kill? (in many ways.... ihihihi)
Welcome gray days! :)

Alternative Green

I guess baby sprout is wondering what it's doing
in an apartment on the 6th floor.
Anyway, it is doing OK, just taking it slowly this week. 

So, today I will introduce you my new fave salad
arugula, endive, figs, caramelized pecans, and goat cheese
with red wine reduction,
