Some new things :)

They are not even here yet but I am so happy they are coming today. Rick went on a bike ride and found them all in one place.
I needed a small side table for sewing stuff, he wanted a prep table in the kitchen and we both hoped for a coat rack that looked like a tree. So there they all were in North Brooklyn.
Not sure which one of these is coming but one of them is :)
Rick's prep table upside down or it's one just like this that they put together for him right there.
My sewing stuff table, simple and pretty.  I didn't want to get anything we saw reently in stores or if there was something in a shop it was "antique" and expensive, these are all from reclaimed wood and materials.  "From The Source" http://fromthesourceny.com/



I am all for the fridge gallery, and we have started ours. Housewarming cards from Rick's family and friends, my Plastiki letter and other fun things are on there. We had a nice magnet stolen from our door but when I saw this set of magnets on Etsy I got them.

How perfect they are for us! More mags for the fridge and one for the door :) (I also superglued the door one on!)


Bits and Pieces

Cassa back on Halloween!
First Halloween Visitor!
It was fun doing my first candy hand-out :)Our door decor actually for real scared a couple of kids!
Cornhusk Voodoo Beauties
Well isn't that part of what Halloween is about? All in good fun of course :)

Well I still have stuff in boxes and still stuff to be gathered up from places it was stored in Rick's family's house. We have a mantelpiece and bunches of other "stuff" yes probably 99% mine!
I am keeping this for homey stuff as it happens. I have been doing a lot of photography here in the LES and where ever we happen to roam- that is here: LES NYC Window. Many pix actually are out of the window here!

Not much has happened other than the general things that happen in a REAL home. That happy thing has not worn off :)

We have had a small thing to look out for- in our halls our all black cat Cassa has been blending in and getting bumped and almost stepped on so we have a lot of nightlights! Three came from RiteAid the other two I have had for years.
Two of these are faux aquarium styles with fish and shells and seaweed in them :) They also change colors- very corny and cute!

It's a lot brighter in person :)

Some Flickr sets:
Creatures that live and visit here
Our Christmas Tree
My Flickr page of all the sets

A VERY cool thing my Sunrise pictures from our window here were featured in Gothamist!

"A Year's Worth of Lower East Side Sunrises"

I'll post again here as homey stuff happens, I have some fun plans for our big mantelpiece- it's a real theater piece that I have had for years and it has been "living" in Rick's mom's bedroom! So when it arrives we will have a wonderful faux fireplace :)


One Day On Earth 10/10/10 Lower East Side NYC

One Day On Earth, 10/10/10 Lower East Side from cmerry on Vimeo.

This is my video I made for the One Day On Earth event, 10/10/10, on the Lower East Side, the part I live in so its really a day in my corner of Earth. I look forward to seeing all the videos as they come in since it was posted people were filming in every country on our planet yesterday. If they didn't have cameras they were sent to them and will be collected over the next 30 days. I know the lives of people are so different and I hope to see the good the bad, happy and sad- the real lives we live here on our blue marble. It will increase our understanding of our fellow humans, be aware of the happy stories and the stories that need help to find happiness. All of us live here, we need to know what the lives of others are like, this planet we share isn't really that big.
Hope you had a great 10/10/10 :)


I love our sky view

Hello clouds!

SOHO and 'round about over the weekend..

It was a nice day to run errands :)
See the whole flickr bunch here
And a few Twitpics here!


Kitty Model...

I asked Cassa my 18 year old kitty to model on the air mattress, this is what he gave me. Then of course after the pic was taken, he did some cute rolling around but I was not there.. :)


I'm not messy..

My room merely resembles shop windows in SOHO..:)


A walk to Kate's

We decided at about 1am to have dinner at Kate's in our old East Village neighborhood. I walked there from the LES, (Rick was coming back from work uptown) my fave walk is down Clinton to Ave B. I always pass the Williamsburg Bridge foot and bike path entrance. People are always on it riding or walking at all hours.

In front of Kate's was a *ahem* funny little sign..

Had our veggie meat and walked home via a stop at Parkside. It was a nice night :)


Bits and Adven-chores

Things that distract me from doing things I should be doing and my wander to the grocery store..

The weather today..

Former neighbor :)

I would see this guy a lot when I would walk our Poodle Man. He really is this cute and friendly and he has cleaned up and organized the place so much it is fun to peek inside.
