I seriously think I found my dream car: this sweet little white Smart car with custom leather interiors, all hand sewn, by Hermes. It's called the Toile H, and there are only 10 of them. And they're probably already all sold. But I think I really should have one too. Santa, pleeeeeeeeease? [Via Cool Hunting]
Part mid-century eye candy, part fascinating period piece, check out The American Look, a styliscious short doc the kind they don't make anymore. Unearthed and posted by Brooklyn Modern.
JOURNEY ACROSS THE BRIDGE:
Shannon Sharpe's piece on craft in Brooklyn is in the latest issue of American Craft Magazine and available to read online. ALSO - the magazine's blog feature Zoom is a great way to keep up with news from the craft world at large.
An early little Christmas story: Mary Varanyak planted a small Norway spruce in 1931 after it served as her young family's Christmas tree. Over the years it grew and grew, and she nurtured it, because as she told everyone, one day it would be put up at Rockefeller Center. Although she passed away before she could see it herself, Mrs. Varanyak's Christmas tall handsome tree was indeed selected this year, and it went up last weekend in New York City. [Via Gothamist.]
Um, sorry, can we just look at some more pictures of my car...?
