Friday Salon


Okay, so it was #ALTNYC yesterday and did you notice? I wasn't there. Sniff. BIG sniff. I mean, it's NYC AND Alt in one great inspiring, fun, tiring, creative package. At Martha's headquarters.

I went to the first one last summer but couldn't figure out the life/family logistics to swing this one. Thanks to EVERYONE attending who tweeted and 'gramed all the goodness. I'll be scouring the recaps next week. 

You should too.

Hipsters who dress like Jackie

RIP Vine

RIP James Gandolfini

I've reno'd two of them and I'll do one again someday

If Disney was honest

How to sell your art.  

360 degrees of fab. 

This is the last weekend before the end of grade 2 for the girl. Then it's summah, baby! Cottage. Waterskiing and wakeboarding. Swimming. English peas, bing cherries, and peaches. Frisbee and biking and outrigger canoeing. 

Sidewalk chalk art, anyone? 

I.can't.wait (and I KNOW that last week the SNYT said that creating emphasis through the use of periods is "meh" but poo on them - I'm still doing it). 

This weekend? Hot Docs is on the road from Toronto (I used to live a couple of blocks from it's home cinema <---- still missing Toronto) and I'll be seeing some of their faves. And the jazz festival is on as well - hitting some clubs.  

Gotta grab the culture when you can. 

Crazily enough, all THREE of us are running in a fun run on Sunday. Just 5K - forget that half or full marathon business, my knees won't take it. 

And you, my friends? What will you be doing and will you be watching the Mad Men season finale on Sunday night?
