Paper & Silver

I bought this exquisite silver-plated spoon for $1 at the great flea market on 76th and Columbus - if you go, don't miss the mouth-watering farmers' market behind the Museum of Natural History, one block North.
As for this extraordinary and delicate silver mesh bag, it dates back from the 1930's. I bought it on Etsy, from Arte Della Moda.

And here are the books I've been reading this past month in NYC.
I just bought Ian McEwan's Enduring Love to read on the plane tomorrow, as I'm flying to Paris. Stay tuned for more traveling!

Hmmmmm... I am wondering what you are up these days... you are jet-setting all over... is this a new job... new adventure... are you ever returning to LA... or is that adventure over... did I miss a post somewhere... hmmmm

hila said...

you'll have to let me know if Enduring Love is good - I've been meaning to read it.

Mary-Laure said...

FIFI - let's say I may be in the middle of a major transition in my life, as it's likely I may start a new job soon with a NYC-based company. I haven't talked about it in a post yet because I don't want to get all excited in case something goes wrong and the plans can't go through...
As soon as I know things for sure, my blog friends will be the first to know!

HILA - well, I finished it yesterday. Frankly, I didn't adore it.......

Bonne Chance to you!
