I've been meaning to post these for ages, they're from a weekend trip to greenport, long island, about a month ago.
it was mostly gray and cloudy, but luckily the lomo will make any weather look good!
I just love the gray, beige, blue and pink tones of the pictures.

first of all, thank you so much for the nice comments on my last post.
they really made my day!
and then, I have a little announcement to make:
after dreaming of my own etsy shop for so long I decided to just try it while I had the time,
and I opened one a few weeks ago: m a n i fold
I don't quite know where this is heading yet,
but I'm glad to have something to do, and I really enjoy thinking about
product photography and presentation, and maybe a few new products very soon.
I've listed a few things that I made for myself or for friends before
and that I wear a lot, thinking that maybe other people would like them too.
There are also a few japanese craft books and some vintage shoes. Here are some pictures:
knit necklace turquoise/gray
tote for him (or her)
knit necklace pumpkin/gray
lucky luke ikat scarf (already sold)
pointy vintage flats in size 9-10
Pattern Magic Vol. 2 and other japanese sewing books
I'd love you to stop by the shop and have a look!

hi! I know, it's been quiet around here lately, I feel I've lost my blogging mojo somehwere...
I'm doing okay, but the job hunt is going slow, I'm a bit scared that I won't find anything before christmas.
I enjoy having time for some sewing, cooking and baking bread, but still,
it's time to get back to work, I hope soon.
it started getting cold in NYC only yesterday, after I think one of the nicest falls I've ever had, with some amazing weather.
last sunday we had brunch on a friend's roof terrace in the west village almost sweating in our t-shirts.
no comparison to London in november if I remember correctly!
we've been going running in the mornings, and I've seen the leaves in prospect park change colour ever so gradually,
which made me appreciate fall a lot.
the picture above was taken about 6 weeks ago from our living room window.
the leaves from this tree are all gone by now, but a few other ones are still bright yellow.
