Friday Fancies

Weather-wise, this past week has been one of the most perfect beginnings of spring that I can remember. One interesting side effect of the warm days and cool, misty mornings has been a pleasant (in my opinion, anyway) lingering fog. This is what the lower Manhattan skyline looked like during lunchtime yesterday:

If this keeps up, the city may have to change its name to New Francisco. Or San York.

Some other, less foggy highlights from the week:

Pretty paper flowers that would make a lovely keepsake.

A recipe for spinach feta dumplings (that seem like a twist on spinach balls, for those of you who have had those).

A few nice ideas for incorporating lavender into a wedding.

Some behind the scenes scoop (or should I say sGoop?) on Gwyneth Paltrow's much raved about Oscar dress.

And have you made the switch from hot to iced coffee yet this season? Here's an interesting article about the economics of iced coffee.


  1. wow, that picture is so beautiful! it looks like an illustration or a work of art. thanks for sharing it, and happy weekend!

  2. I love the foggy look of the skyline!
    I also like the lavender for weddings tip. I have a friend getting married soon and that would be something she'd be interested in.

  3. New York in the fog looks great! Love all the links, especially Gyneth's dress and the beautiful paper flowers.
