When living in NYC we did a lot of road trips and one of them to Palenville NY. So nice to get out of the city when it’s boiling hot and 40°  Found the cutest little shop Circle W Market with local goods and veggies, serving whole food. The cakes were baked by a lady who was a neighbour. Love that!

 

FLASHBACK FRIDAY

When we were living in LA we took a trip to San Francisco for my birthday…..what a looker this city is. Would love to come back and spend more time here. This was during my 2 years as vegan hence the vegan hotdog place. Those hotdogs from Underdog were so good we had to order another round. We took highway 1 from LA and it’s such a scenic route, takes way longer but can recommend it. Here are a few favorit spots of mine:

mini guide | red hook, brooklyn

redhook03 redhook-02 redhook-05 redhook-04 redhook-01 redhook-06exploring red hook when we lived in williamsburg. it’s really a mix of everything…small cute houses, industrial feel, red hook housing projects, wine bars, fruit market, valentino pier where they show outdoor movies, you can see which movies at red hook flicks and you can catch a glimps of the statue of liberty while eating your lunch….i kinda fell in love. brought brown rice and tofu salad from mr. piña in williamsburg….this was our go-to grocery shop and they have great value fruits and greens and a super juice bar. you can catch the free ikea ferry shuttle from wall streets pier 11 to red hook. the top photo is of the entrance to steve’s authentic key lime pies and it looks like it has relocated since i’ve been there (just a little further down the street though)..remember i wrote about steve here. this is some of my favorite spots in red hook:

the other day i watched the movie red hook summer. it’s spike lee’s 6. movie in the chronicles of brooklyn. the movie is set in the housing projects in red hook, and for me the tour through red hook and the story about the projects was more interesting than the movie. the NYCHA Red Hook Houses, is the largest public housing development in brooklyn, which accommodates roughly 5,000 residents. my last picture is from there. and the movie had the feeling of when i was standing there taking that picture. but check out the movie and judge for yourself.

a mini tour of my hood. möbelmakeri is such a great little interior design shop and felt like i discovered a little secret because it’s tucked away at ringdansvägen. they have everything from beautiful posters by danish silke bonde, diamond lights by eric therner to colourful washi-tape. super super nice shop and the shop also has a webshop..check it out here. the café ett skafferi at “skvallertorget” really wins you over with the large out door seating area and will say pretty friendly prices. next stop is the vintage store lyckliga gatan selling both funitures, clothes and everything in between. such great service and so many lovely things i wanted to buy. check out those glass fishing floats, those would look so good in the ombre macramés i’m making…will let you know when they are for sale in my etsy store. and what about that south american map. good stuff! almost next door you’ll find another vintage store vintage fabriken and it’s is oh so lovely. here you’ll find a great deal of 50’s style. check out that blue flower coffee cup on the second last picture i’m pretty sure a cup of coffee from that cup will tast amazing. and the row of dresses…so cute. here is a picture of the three lovely ladies owning this vintage heaven and links to their blogs. i’ve attached my google map of midsommarkransen where you can find a few other places. go on and check out midsommarkransen and let me know if you find something great i don’t know about!
