new apartment. I find that I am missing the most random things - certain pairs of shoes, furniture and crafting supplies seem to be on the top of the list. I'm also determined not to buy anything until I know if we can fit our existing possessions into the apartment. I kinda love this vintage typewriter poster though - and it would be so cute in my new office (especially since I got rid of my real typewriter when we moved)....this one might be my favorite:

We took a trip waaaaaay uptown to visit the Cloisters, a branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art devoted to medieval Europe. It doesn't feel like you are in the city at all! The site is the highest in Manhattan - how quickly you get used to not walking up hills...San Francisco, wha?All photos by me.
Made by me - no pattern, I just made it up. Sorry!
sandwich shop, grocery and thrift store!
What Happens When (New York, maybe?) but I was immediately intrigued by the concept - every thirty days, the menu, decor and sound change thematically. We were out on Sunday and happened to walk by (I guess that must happen pretty often in New York) and they happened to have an open table and we just so happened to have a lovely dinner. The current theme or "movement" as they called it was inspired by Renoir, specifically, the above painting. The food was French "garden party" inspired (I had the roasted chicken) and was truly delicious. Find out more here.
