Friday Link Love – Here are a few of my favorite new things I discovered this week or have been meaning to share for a while now. And when I say new, I mean like I discovered it on instagram a few hours ago.
Vampyrex – Esther Lee collects and sells vintage Pyrex and displays it beautifully in her Brooklyn home. I asked her if it would be okay if I stopped by for a visit to see it in person. She said yes!
I love The Little Book of HYGGE. It describes perfectly every feeling I have about home and living. Madeline has been talking about it for a while and I have to admit I had never even heard the word until last year when she came home from Study Abroad. I’m big on cozy lighting, candle light and a roaring fire all the while a storm is raging outside. I had no idea that this is what they call Hygee. When Madeline went back to school after winter break I sent her a Salt Lamp to get her through the long winter. Candles, twinkle lights and a salt lamp all seem very Hygge to me.
Homesick Candles – Everyone knows that scent is one of the most important elements in connecting to a memory. Homesick Candles has managed to do that very well with their Southern California candle. It smells of orange, a hint of cactus and of course, the ocean. They are so lovely.
Last week we were making our way to The Laundress on Prince Street to pick up a bottle of Wool & Cashmere Shampoo when we came upon The Little Prince. It was about 5 o’clock when everything looks magical in the late afternoon light. It was that warm day last week that felt like Spring. We ducked into The Little Prince for a quick bite before heading home. How could we not? I mean, could a little bistro be more inviting?
One of our favorite coffee shops last week was AP Cafe or AP A Place Creative in Bushwick, Brooklyn. We came upon it completely by accident. Don’t you love when that happens? It’s a light filled cafe where you can meet with friends or get some work done while noshing on the most delicious breakfast burrito. Are you following us @coffeeshopsofnewyork ? Where should we go next? We love suggestions! Have a beautiful weekend! xo annie
