Sea Salt

If you know me well enough you’d know i collect salt- the edible variety. Well I don’t just collect salt I use them too, in cooking, finishing dishes or rimming a glass of ice cold Michelada.
I think my favorite salt is Brazilian salt, however my stock has depleted, so its time for a trip to Brazil or I can just ask my sister who frequently travels to Brazil on work to get me some (sister dearest I hope you are reading my blog)
Well speaking of salt, we just painted our living room with a Sherwin Williams paint color SeaSalt. I can’t quite say its blue, green, gray or even white. It takes in different shades with different light but what I can say for sure its definitely soothing.  It went on easy and barely smelled of anything.
I think it’s a great backdrop for all the fun things i have going for the room, stay tuned for that!

Kickstarter

Kickstarter.

 
if you don’t already know what Kickstarter is its a funding website for creative projects.
My first kickstarter funding was the restaurant Thirty Acres in Jersey City, and since then I have been a small part in the funding of some really creative projects, one of them being the Blime Light. 
My friend Barbara was over for the weekend and she was put to the task of assembling this lamp, which she very enthusiastically put together while listening to ‘lovey dovey’ songs.

After putting the Ikea light cord it was ready and found a home in the corner of our freshly painted living room.
