Friday Snacks!

It's Friday - enjoy the snacks!

IN STITCHES
Find new work by embroidery artists of the craft new wave at Gallery Hanahou (in Soho, name means "encore!" in Hawaiian). "Forget Me-Not" is on view Feb. 6-27 (opening Feb. 6, 6-8pm), and bills affordable artwork. (via Craftzine blog)

TREND ALERT?
Will top hats become the new antlers? Maybe not, but these hanging lights would be fun to make yourself... Nice shapes, rich satiny hat linings... (via Cool Hunting)

SENSE OF REPURPOSE
An exquisite and sensible way to save and repurpose a cathedral: make it into a museum! This is the new Museum of Garden History, in London, of course. (via Inhabitat)

HACKED IN TEXAS
In case you missed this story on your nightly news... Someone hacked a traffic sign in Austin. Nice!!

SAVE & SAVOR
I'm a good-food person, and lately I've been interested in the ethnic street food scene in NYC, partly because I'm watching too much Anthony Bourdain, and partly because prices tend to be recession-friendly. The blog Cheap Ass Food is my new favorite guide for discovering good eats -- irreverent, thorough, and good pics... Pass the pork buns and vegetable dumplings!

Those road sign changes were pretty interesting, living in Austin and all, the city does indeed have a sense of humor!

Austin Texas sign is great! Can't imagine it happening in Long Beach, NY - but one never knows....
