I know...I'm leaving my posts so behind, and then... blame the Cruise's I've been following them around (virtually, of course) on their travel to the french riviera.... for that I found this site (POPSUGAR) with tons of photos, and Sugar everything, that can literally entertain you the whole working day, LOL... shhh, don't tell or I'll get kicked out.

Getting back to my post, from Apartment Therapy today is outdoors lightening...I wanna keep these for the "lighting proyect" for the holidays... that could work out nicely.

Helmick and Schechter Sculpture

30'h 30'w 8'd
cast metal/stainless cable
Melvin Price Federal Courthouse
East St. Louis, IL

I'm impressed with these sculpted heads (hundreds of them) hanging from suspended cables to form two monumental heads facing each other. Below you can see the detail. Very impressive work from Helmick and Schechter.

Using traditional methods, the artists sculpted twelve life-size portraits
of ordinary American citizens-representing twelve members of a jury.
The heads were then laser-scanned, rapid-prototyped at small scale,
cast in pewter in large quantities, finished with a hand-rubbed patina,
and precisely affixed to hundreds of suspended cables.

New England Blueberry Muffin

Ok, could you belive this??? a tea that taste as a fresh blueberry muffing???

Let me quote the whole description here:

A rich and smooth blend of blueberries and yogurt that tastes and smells like a "fresh from the oven" blueberry muffin. This can be enjoyed any time of the day and is especially good as a dessert drink with a little sugar. Great with pancakes! Fruit infusions, or tisanes, can also be used as a base for fruit cups, punches, sorbets, ice cream, and fruit creams.
Interesting, isn't it? For sure I will try to get one of those. You can look for it at Portsmouth Tea Company.

Meet my new infuser... isn't that a cutie? I'm a coffee person, 100%, but couldn't resist to buy it. The little teacup is just adorable. I'm trying to find it online to post a link, but no luck yet. In case I'm supposed to post a link, today I upload some pictures at Flickr, feel free to visit, soon I'll reach the 2000 visits!!!

Happy New Year!!!!!

Shame on me... a whole month of absence... sorry about that, but just for the record, it was SOOO worth it, the best month ever, the best Christmas I have had in a long time you wouldn't imagine how happy I am.

Also I got the chance to buy "After-Christmas" presents, and since I love Rossana stuff, from the boxes to the lovely pieces, I went for it, but the new arrivals are just adorable, I got a second favorite now, Bon Voyage collection.
