7057A, I say!

If you are at the NY Gift Show, visit booth 7057A, where you will be greeted by the lovely Mr. Kevin Patrick McCarthy, himself, hand weaving his spacey, Fellini-esque, lanyard lampshades. They are so very cool. As a matter of fact, I have one of his black, scalloped-edge shades hanging languidly in my living room.

lady liberty, dinosaurs, pearls, plum wine, pitchers, and cava

An early morning trip to Ellis Island.

I always intended to includes bits and bobs in outgoing packages. It took a dollar store near a string of cemeteries in New Jersey, four years later, to turn intention into a tangible expression of thought.

The Detritus of a fine New Year's Eve.

(p.s. the awful quality of my photos is distressing, seeing as how I own a brand new digital camera. I suppose it's time to read the manual.)
