When I was in Brugge, I stayed in a beautiful little hotel. Our room had enormous, black metal windows that opened up to a stone courtyard. We got there at dusk. The room was flooded with beautiful light. And there were bats flying madly through the courtyard. The room was done in black and white stripes. It was simple but beautiful. This bouquet made me think of that room. I love that unexpected touch of a black and white striped ribbon.
Also, I'm always on the look out for new holiday music. I'm really loving Feathers by Fort Christmas. Take a listen here.

I used to joke that I got all of my decorating tips from that ubiquitous chain coffee shop (you know the one). Now I'm coveting the clothes the folks over at Stumptown at the Ace are wearing these days: skinny ties, vests and hats. I think I see some vests in my future . . .
P.S., Stumptown has the best coffee, hands down. Try it over at Sweetleaf in Long Island City, too.

Halloween was such a blast. We went to Central Park's Pumpkin Festival on Saturday where we encountered a lot of really amazing costumes. I was especially taken with the Big Bad Wolf who came along with "Little" Red Riding Hood and the Woodswoman.

For the last forty years, "West 69th Street from Broadway to Central Park West is transformed into a big Halloween Trick or Treat Party. The neighbors decorate their domiciles, don full costume regalia, and some turn their living rooms into haunted houses for the little ghosts and goblins to traipse through. It is a great place to take your kids on Halloween."

These were taken with a Canon T70, which I was given for free on Friday when it looked like there was so much corrosion that the camera was inoperable. A little screwdriver action, some rubbing alcohol and new batteries seemed to do the trick. I took these on a 12 mile run on Saturday. Even though this isn't a camera I already had, I'm putting it in the New Project: Old Cameras series. It's a fun little camera to play around with.
