It's raining in NYC today and supposed to change to sleet, ice, snow... and then a NOR'EASTER by Thursday?? Well, I'm thinking about spring anyway and these flowers were crafted out of sugar by the amazing Sylvia Weinstock. Here are some closeups (don't mind the traces of icing from the cake they adorned). I'm SO into these...
Valentine's Eve arrangement reminded me to surround myself with flowers until spring comes (ok, well, *always* would be nice too), so this is my desk at work right now: a white phalaenopsis orchid and orange ranunculus:
A Little Sussy and now I'm definitely obsessed with them. On my way home last night I got some tulips because I agree with Suburban Zen about buying some for yourself instead of waiting for someone else to send you some.
Carlo's Bakeshop, the bakery from the show Cake Boss on TLC. I wrote about the long lines that are now outside on the weekends, making it impossible to get in there for a cannoli, but the cakes sure are pretty.
FU Penguin: Telling Cute Animals What's What. I'd go into further detail, but my Mom is reading this, so expletives will be left out for now.
Here's hoping that spring gets here soon, it will definitely improve my mood, but for now, flowers will have to do.
