nyc - brooklyn flea

i've been wanting to go to the brooklyn flea ever since taza from the rockstardiaries posted about it here 

so two weekends ago my sister & i ventured into brooklyn

it was a lot of fun & we both loved looking around, but agreed that next time we should probably just go the the smorgasbord market because the food was our favorite part :) 

i could see myself being more into the vintage & antique items when i have a home of my own to decorate though, & as far as the clothes go there were a lot of nice pieces, but a little pricey to what i'm used to seeing at the local thrift stores i go to 

beautiful mirrors 

<3 this bench 

would love a piece like this to fill with all my art supplies 


lovely, unique rugs

love this!

cool looking camera...that i almost got 

brooklyn: love the ivy & i want a bike like the one below!

delicious home brewed sodas from brooklyn soda works! i bought a re-useable/refillable growler of the apple ginger & refilled it again before i left :) 

the dough-nuts that taza talked about in her blog post, they were as delicious as promised & i too recommend that everyone try one!

you must also try an asia dog! they have organic hot dogs too (which made my day) & their topping combinations are unique & delicious 
below are the hotdogs my sister & i got plus my growler of apple ginger soda 

i got: the SIDNEY: Thai style relish with mango + cucumber + red onion +
cilantro + crushed peanuts + fish sauce
my sister got: MASH: Spicy ketchup + jalapeno mustard + crushed salt and pepper
potato chips
*both were delicious, but the mash was my favorite...i have a weakness for spicy

we thought these bows were headbands, but they were actually bow ties...i love them either way 

so many cool retro glasses! when i need glasses one day i want to get them from here 


and the dough-nut i choose was.....passion fruit with cacao nibs (i lived in hawaii for 8 months & have a weakness for passion fruit) it was incredible!

*   *   *

 so i definitely recommend taking a trip to the brooklyn flea 
the outdoor markets are closed for the winter, but the indoor winter market is open saturday + sunday from 10 am-6 pm, more details here 

enjoy :)

my thanksgiving plate: grandmas homemade veggie stuffing, cranberry, shredded carrots, organic corn bread casserole, organic green bean casserole with homemade cream of mushroom soup, chipoltle sweet potato casserole, & mashed potatoes 
p.s. i did not fully finish this plate until 3 meals later...eyes too big for my stomach 

family love

hope everyone had a wonderful thanksgiving! 

new jersey - atlantic ocean

Two weekends ago I took my first trip to Atlantic City. I was not one for the casinos or any of that...my favorite part was strolling along the deserted beach in the morning :)  

pumpkin carving

first snow

rose inspired

 I had roses that were dying & the first snow had just began to fall so I was inspired to do a mini rose photo shoot :)
