a wing and a prayer

i’m taking my mind off the AD show for a sec and going thru some of the great web stuff i’ve come across yesterday and today. who knew that abc carpet was so on it environmentally? i love that they will totally solarize your home: www.abcrealgoodssolar.com

or you can just peruse the site for beauty and inspiration at www.abchome.com.

i actually LOVE this store and it was the catalyst i needed to start a business in ’93. if you’re coming to nyc, put it on your hit list!

these are pics of the newly renovated plaza hotel. i think they did a good job mixing playful elegance with unstuffy.

the images came from jen ramos at made by girl. her blog is full of eye candy and i kept going back to it throughout the day, lovin and being inspired by her.

when i went there just now to get the url i saw her new post for us animal lovers :

finally, the wing and the prayer i’m referring to? that would be the Architectural Digest show I’m so determined to do. but many of you probably know, putting on a show is a lot of detail! so much for my relaxing and writing in miami for awhile. one of our lines uses these old maps of downtown nyc. they really are pink and so pretty! it’s kind of like google satellite with house numbers and lots!
