This is a shot I took in Soho after seeing Exit Through the Gift Shop, the awesome documentary about street artists Banksy, Shepard Fairey, Space Invader, Mr. Brainwash and others and how far they would go for their art, very funny, very cool.
May I say that May has been a crazy month so far: 11 days and it's been 4 holidays (Fete du Muguet, Cinco de Mayo, Korean Children's Day, Mother's Day), 3 marketplaces (Hester Street Fair, Limelight, Brooklyn Lyceum Spring Food and Craft Market), 2 movies (Exit Through the Gift Shop, Kick-Ass), 2 store openings (Nordstrom Rack, David Yurman), 2 nights of celebrities and 1 museum gala. So, here's how some of it went.
First up on May 1st was The Brooklyn Lyceum's Spring Food and Craft Market
There's my boyfriend on his way in. I fell hard for the adorable drawings by Kristiana Parn, we had Korean kimchi hotdogs from Mama O's Kimchee and then he bought me...
a beautiful necklace by Lauren Haupt, which I wore the next day when we....
went to the Hester Street Fair
which was lovely, but it was around 90 degrees that day so we went to see the street art movie. Fast forward to the next weekend and we went to check out Limelight Marketplace:
and the site that was once a church and became a club has been reborn as an amazing marketplace of beautiful and unique shops, a gourmet food gallery and outdoor green market. Restaurants and wine bars are also moving in soon!
I love the cakes at Butterfly Bakeshop, tiered cake chocolates at The Little Candy Cake Company, adorable kitchenwares at Whisk, decadent, fascinating flavors of brownies at Mari's, truly tasty oils and vinegars from Carter & Cavero (we bought fig balsamic), wonderful soaps from Soapology (in lily of the valley and almond!) and the beautiful home designs at Brocade Home.
So, it was a great place to shop for Mother's Day.
I also made my Mom a little tissue paper carnation corsage with this tutorial from Folding Trees
and now there are only 20 more days of May and so much more to do...!
