And Now, Let Me Introduce To You...


For today's blog post I really feel inspired to introduce you to one of my favorite blogs: NY Girl Eats World created by Nicole Cotroneo. I don't know her personally but I am addicted to her writing. Nicole writes about the food, places, and people that she experiences as she travels around her parts of the world. I can't explain why, but when I read about these experiences I get the feeling that I have to have that same experience too or I'll just die. Suddenly I don't want to touch another french fry, unless mine too can be drizzled with truffle oil. And I find myself morning the idea of dead kitchens as I lick my lips with the thought of jam on bread. I've never even given a thought to a city named Toronto until I read her latest post, and now I feel that Toronto must be one of the loveliest places on earth (I will be pondering the layered meanings in that photo of an old, red, gabled building reflected in the modern sleekness of glass walls for the rest of the day). So, if you get some free, relaxed, daydreaming time today I suggest you spend it traveling and eating with the brilliant Nicole Controneo.

I just looked at the photo you mentioned, and it is breath-taking. Thanks for recommending that site.

I am afraid to take a look because I already can't keep up with blogging :) !! Off I go ...

I am definitely NOT going to look :P well, maybe just at the photo...

I'm pretty sure my felt is synthetic - I just bought a big bag full of offcuts on eBay, because I'd never tried sewing with felt and always wanted to experiment... a burn test confirms it - synthetic - I shall just have to keep discouraging Wombat from chewing on it until he grows out of the habit! I'd love to use wool felt, but can't afford to! This stuff is nice & thick, though - not flimsy like some.

Felt food sounds like a fun idea for the future - Wombat loves the organic cotton veggie toys we got him as a baby. My next idea is to make a cloth alphabet/activity book...

I love the love/home/family pic below!
