Mi Armoir

My lovely mother-in-law gave me this armoir for our guest room. The “before” picture was a nothing-special, oak piece with plane jane knobs, but I had bigger and better plans for it (kicking myself for not taking pics).

I painted it aqua to match accent wallpaper covering two walls in the room (Lowes did a color match by scanning a piece of the wallpaper- how cool), replaced the plane janes with ceramic rabbit knobs I found on clearance at Anthroplogie, and voila. Here’s a look of what lives inside…

My mom bought me this snow globe months before the Twin Towers were hit- you can see them in the right hand corner of the globe. One morning while rushing to get to work, I knocked it off the shelf and shattered it. To my surprise, there are people out there who specialize in snow globe repair. So off it went, and after paying triple what she originally bought it for, it was back together again.

Love this quote I found in an “Interview” magazine a while ago:

My jewelry box from when I was around 9 (the little twirling ballerina that goes inside is MIA):

Another snow globe- broken- this one, by my son (going to leave it that way as a sweet reminder of his young age):

NYC Graffiti- do you know?

This is a collage piece I did in 95′ for my high school photography class. It’s made up of  photos I took of a graffiti mural on the side of what used to be Tower Records on Broadway and East 4th (Manhattan). The mural was painted over long ago and last I checked, the lot has been replaced by stands of flea-market type junk (don’t get me wrong, I love flea markets, but this stuff is junk).

I didn’t think enough to do any research on the artist back then, so if anyone has any info or remembers the mural,

I’d love to hear about it.
