The High Line

The High Line

Teeny and Tiny visited the new High Line located on Manhattan’s West Side.

It was a crisp, sunny December day. We were both very excited to experience the park. It is well designed, integrating old and new. The colors of the dried grasses looked beautiful against the wood furniture and old rail lines, but I would recommend visiting in the spring and summer months. I think the space will be more vibrant in bloom with lush greens. I can see people lounging, soaking in the sun on the plentiful public seating; it’s an ideal place to watch all the beautiful New Yorkers.

Unfortunately (or fortunately), we didn’t spot any naked people at The Standard Hotel on our walk.

Oh Holy Night…

Christmas Eve at the Ballinger-Douglass's

Teeny and Tiny spent a memorable Christmas Eve together. First, a delicious dinner with friends and family (yum for shrimp and scallops and boyfriends who cook!), Christmas Eve Mass followed by stockings and presents.

And there was even snow on the ground!

Peel!

Bananagrams!

Tiny is bananas for Bananagrams!

I played all Christmas break and right now still can’t get enough. It’s like individual speed Scrabble yet played in a group. Watch out! I get very competitive. I made friends and family play for hours- at home and even out in bars! And how can you not love the adorable banana bag the game comes in!

So if you hear words like mushy, split, peel, bananas, join in the fun. You won’t regret it.

Note: I now realize that jip is not in the Scrabble dictionary…And period is spelled period NOT peroid.

Matchy, Matchy Bestys

Best Friends Forever

Teeny and Tiny were reunited for a short time over Christmas break and got to be matchy, matchy all over Brooklyn!

Our matchy, matchy hats were one-upped by BFF t-shirts at Brooklyn Industries. The salesgirl insisted we get them for each other as she and her “besty” have them.

Alameda Flea Market

Alameda Flea Market

On my birthday in October, a few friends and I went to the Alameda Flea market. It’s on the first Sunday of every month, and it’s the largest antiques and collectibles faire in Northern California.

It is ginormous! I only expected to be there for about 2 hours and we were there for over 4. It was fun to peruse such random assortment of clothes, gadgets, housewares, furniture and knick-knacks. I didn’t get anything except a small swatch of vintage fabric but some of my friends spotted some cool finds like a retro globe and a Danish designed vase.

Was almost tempted to buy these bathing suit trunks. Too cute!

Moose Tracks

Teeny’s taste in home furnishings: Cabin chic. (Her apartment in Brooklyn boasts an eight-point buck head named Brutus and a chainsaw-carved bear named dotcom.) The taxidermy shop she visited in Keene Valley, N.Y., on her Adirondack vacation was like walking into the house she hopes to one day own. OK, that might be going a little too far. She doesn’t need jackalope busts or posed hunting scenes. She does dream about a moose head like this beaut, though. Over a big fat fireplace. Another life goal: to see a moose in the wild.

Matchy Matchy

 

playing at ommegangA few weeks ago, Tiny’s mom kindly sent Teeny a sweater for her pup and a matching hat for herself. Here we are, modeling the set as we play in a big field behind Ommegang Brewery in Cooperstown, N.Y., during our vacation. Don’t we look sharp?  (Tiny’s mom also knitted a hat for Tiny — same hat, different colors, so Teeny and Tiny will be matchy matchy, too. Hooray! Thanks to Tiny’s mom!)
