A day of organizing my closet with my mom
my new obsession: Hart of Dixie.
The show is a bit silly, but certainly entertaining and I DIE for Lemon Breeland’s outfits.

CAPTIVA DAYBOOKS, October 1978
Its story and its life in my living room….
Robert Petersen made his first journal drawing in 1976 on Captiva Island, Florida, where he lived and worked closely with artist Robert Rauschenberg from 1970 to 1980. The journal artworks were born out of Petersen’s sketchbooks, where he collected observations of his daily surroundings, drawings for future pieces, musings, postcards, photographs, and ephemera such as calendar clippings and magazine illustrations. At each month’s end, he would distill the highlights into a 20 x 30 inch drawing, which is an aesthetic that remains in his artwork today.
This is October 1978, the month and year of my birth, and a one of a kind beauty.
A Sidewalk Awakening
I stumbled upon a magical thing the other day… NYC NEVER ceases to delight.
Its called Library Way and here is the story:
In 1996, Grand Central Partnership, along with the New York Public Library and The New Yorker, convened a distinguished panel of literary experts and librarians to select quotations regarding the importance and impact of literature from some of literature’s most prominent works.
These quotes have been brought to life by urban sculptural artist Gregg LeFevre in beautiful bronze plaques installed at regular intervals in the sidewalks along 41st Street leading to and from the Library. The Library Way bronze plaque initiative was honored with an “Excellence in Design” award by the New York City Arts Commission in 1998.
In honor of the project, New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg signed legislation in 2003 that officially designates this two-block stretch of East 41st Street as “Library Way.”
These are my photos, but to view images of the 96 bronze sidewalk insets along Library Way, click here.
Gosh… It’s been forever! Can’t recall, but now I love Vinalyx
