THANKSGIVING…..time for Turkey

My FAVE is the third one down……“THE LAST THANKSGIVING”

DIANE von FURSTENBERG Porcelain Dinnerware

Housing Works Thrift store was having a fall sale.  I picked up a set of porcelain designed by Diane von Furstenberg………….a nice addition to my dining collections.

Before I dine on it………..I decided to draw it.

I added my silver creamer to the still-life.

I used 25 different GRAYS to create the art.

I had a little bit of help………from Barbie’s boy friend.  He decided which grays I would use.

BUY your POT at the YMCA

The pottery class at the 63rd street Y is having a POTTERY SALE.  It is never to early to stock up on Christmas gifts.


DOORWAY at the Y

 

These are the 5 pieces I couldn’t resist…………

The BOTANICAL PRINTS in the background are from the            BOTANICUM book.


This pot now holds my TRADER JOE’S peanut butter pretzels.

The jelly fish platter awaits figs from my terrace garden.

I don’t need another coffee mug…………but I never have enough flower vases.

This ceramic tile will be used as a trivet for my “hot” dishes.

Now I have to figure out how to fit all my new pots onto the “coffee” table.

 

THE PRICE of a HOTDOG in NYC

Two bucks will get you a hotdog……………from a HOTDOG cart that has a permit that costs more than $200,000.

Depending  on where you cart is allowed to park………..your monthly rent costs from $20,000 to $60,000 per MONTH.

So….there is a lot of BLACK MARKET dealing with the permits and the parking places.

The number one prized location is in front of the Met Museum……..at ONE HALF MILLION DOLLARS a year.

VEGGIES at the FARMERS MARKET • nyc

These are the FARMERS that I depend on for my fresh produce………[my parents were farmers so I know what back breaking work it is to grow and gather and cart it to market].

I appreciate all of their hard work.

TOMATILLOS

I turn those green tomatillos into a unique SALSA.

FOOD AND WHISKEY at the Farmer’s Market

Every Sundar morning I get my fresh cheese……….bread………pickles…….duck………chicken sausage………and herbal ice tea…………at the local FARMER’S MARKET


 

 

 


And my Nursery guy Chris…….loves the muffins.

Plastic bags go into a different bin.
