Summer Weekend

This weekend we went to Upstate New York, specifically Boiceville which sandwiched between Phoenicia and Kingston. We rented the cutest little house by the river. There were woods filled with Blue Jay's, a little rickety stairs down into the river to swim, pretty twinkle lights on the porch and the smell of fresh air. Aside from lounging around on the porch we ventured to Peekamouse Blue Hole, which is a swimming hole, 20 minutes away from where we were staying. We had quite a few delicious eats, brunch at Sweet Sue's for pancakes, pizza at Brio's, fancy cocktails and traditional American fare at Boitson's in Kingston. We were in luck and one of the loveliest swimming holes in the U.S. was only 20 minutes away from where we were staying, the water was crystal blue and in a magical forest in the mountains. I love going away to Upstate New York there is so much natural beauty and friendly people.

Bushwick Open Studios

Hi Folks sorry for the big gap in posts. I think this harsh winter put a cramp in everyone's plans including mine so I kinda hibernated, but fear not Summer is here and the fun has just begun. Let's start with the amazingly fun Bushwick Open Studios that happen this past weekend. Open Studios is literally an entire weekend of artists opening up their studios to the public, showing off their work and their lovely work spaces. I apologize that I didn't get every artist's names right from the start , I will try to follow up with an edit as I find out more info. In addition to artists opening their studios, their were art trucks (yes much like food trucks), performance art, grafitti artists, bands, outdoor sculptures in the streets and a general run-a-muckness. Quite fun :)
Here's  some of the stuff I saw, followed by a delicious meal at Roberta's Pizza.
