+ For your snowy day CRAFTernoons:
Everyone's favorite craft- and lifestyle-guru, Martha Stewart, has ideas for old-school valentines and handmade stained-glass hearts. Alas, some of us aren't this crafty. Or maybe some of us are lazy. So some of us resort to store-bought (but still heartfelt) sentiments:
+ Are your nimble fingers tired of cutting and pasting and sewing? Then take a break and catch up on this year's Oscar nominees. Maybe trek out to a matinee, or take a peek at this video, featuring Black Swan tutu designers Rodarte. Yes, it's basically an advertisement for Swarovski, but it's still beautiful.
+ And for your final (or first, or middle, or ALL DAY) snow-day activity: pancakes! Try a little something different, maybe (pine nuts? ricotta?), or go old-fashioned, with a recipe from Miss Helen Hayes, from our favorite new how-rich-people-cooked-for-their-families-in-1940-cookbook.
+ And once the weekend's over, you can look forward to next week's goodies: we'll be posting from the road as we traverse the wilds of New York City in search of the perfect gifts for the shop, and we'll be featuring more expertly-layered folks (email us if you'd like to be photographed!). Until then, bon weekend!
