I was recently at Bedrosians Tile and Stone (an awesome resource for product here in SLC) and happened upon some really beautiful tile that brought back memories of my time in the Paris metro, small town Portugal, and particularly my father's intense love of all decorative tilework.

Now I just need a project for these....

And my favorite-

I was lucky enough to be in the Big Apple and surrounding states a week before Sandy hit, and it is odd to think of the destruction that has occured.  And believe you me, I understand it.  I lived in Miami when Hurricane Andrew hit.  So here's to NYC, NJ and CT, good luck getting back on your feet and hang in there!

And a few good memories from my recent trip...

Always the skyline (at Park and 53rd):

I visited The Standard Hotel in the Meatpacking for the first time (on my cool hotel bucket list for some time now):

And I was able to take a Sunday stroll down the Highline Park (the old elevated rail line transformed a few years ago into a very cool park) which has just fab views of the city and Hudson River.  I hope it was not too battered by Sandy...
