Our thanks to the lovely Jess of Boutique who sent us a beautiful bouquet of flowers from our neighbors at Opalia today! We let her host a little photo shoot in the shop this weekend, it was quite a treat and well worth it for the gorgeous arrangement now festooning our window.

One of our favorite things to do when it gets this cold (aside from designing, redecorating the store, and consuming copious amounts of hot beverages and melty cheeses) is catching up on our movie watching. One of our neighborhood favorites, Boerum Hill resident Michelle Williams’ new movie Blue Valentine (co-starring one of our all time favorites Ryan Gosling) is definitely at the top of our our current movie wishlist (since our longtime number one Black Swan has finally been checked off) and this trailer definitely isn’t hurting matters.
