I had an amazing day photographing two homes in Brooklyn for the new book and then had to work till midnight at the office. Needless to say, I'm a bit tired. So, instead of trying to think too hard, I'd just share with you some really cool things I've seen today....

>> The cherry tree branch that we'd found on the ground and put in water nearly four weeks ago, just decided to open. Spring is near!

---

>> Edge Chopping block from Conran - I saw this at Leslie and Alan's house in Brooklyn. It's super heavy, but a great shape.

---

>> Sanyo Space Saving Toasty Oven - I also saw this at Leslie and Alan's. They bought theirs in Chinatown, and it's a really distinctive shape, that is sort of nicer for being vertical than horizontal.

---

>> The Bloomingdale's Book of Decorating - I just saw this in person for the first time today! Based on the work that went into Bloomingdale's model rooms, this is the 1970's in all their glory.

>> I saw this black Chandelier at Yiming's house. While it looks glamorous and expensive (like Baccarat's black chandelier), it's not. She bought it in Chinatown at Pearl River!
