brooklyn apartment no. 2










My cousin and his wife live here. This apartment is so light and sunny and overlooks Sunset Park. I'm going to make them some pillows to go on that beautiful blue couch!

Our trip to New York was short and sweet. We ate lots of good food, took long subway rides to Manhattan, did tons of walking. Among other things, we visited MOMA, made it to the Fjallraven store, the Empire State Building (well, Charlie and Will did, not me and Lucy), and Prospect Park in Brooklyn.

I really wanted to make it to Purl Soho and Makie on this trip, but it didn't happen. Which gives me a good reason to go back soon.

Wow, look at that wonderful light! So pretty. Once they have your pillows on their sofa it will be perfect.

I love this one, too! That kitchen with the vintage sink and red painted floors..! LOVE. The built-ins, the light, the rug... I love it all.

And I love that you're going to make them pillows for that couch - they'll look great.

(Sigh. Now I want to go to NYC.)

It's beautiful! What great light it gets. I bet they are so excited to get some of your pillows - the final touch to a great place. I would love to go to Purl Soho. Yes, you will have to go back :)
