Spring has finally sprung in the Midwest after a month of record-breaking rains. So out for a walk we go...rediscovering our cozy part of the world off Delmar. Enjoy the photo journal, click to view up close. Trees in bloom and our first dissected still life of the season below.
Here we go...a new meaning to 'little einstein'. A close up of our curly locks, gently twirled into a small dreadlock.
Toasted bagels, pesto and fresh mozzarella at Meshuggah's, our favorite local coffee haunt (here's our table below). Sits across from the historic Tivoli theater marquis (look up!). And a few doors east of Riddles Penultimate, a dive eatery with plentiful wine, fresh local fare and lively live music. Love this place and love the people watching.
Great little boutique on the Loop, Ziezo. No idea it had been open since 1982! Thanks, gals for letting me take a shot of your clever window display of cushy cloth 'raindrops' ('tis the season). And just down the street, a must-see hip kid shop, City Sprouts.
Shallots at the farmer's market, a weekly visit.
Yes, our own walk of fame and a few great designers to boot. Big letter 'E' on the street in front of Vintage Vinyl, a classic record shop, wallpapered with ephemera, the smell of rock-n-roll in the air.
Plastic bird watching?
Winslow's general store has finally opened and is absolutely charming. Inviting window front, vintage linens, pressed tin ceiling, deli and wine and dime store candies. With a little bit of everything it is a perfect addition to the neighborhood.
