Have you been to the Brooklyn Flea lately? I suggest spending a Saturday or Sunday afternoon snacking and browsing the vintage and handmade goodies. Today I found handmade pretzels and caramels, $25 herman miller chairs, a really old bunny and a few of my favorite crafty flea friends.

They also have really great classes! In fact, I'll be teaching a 2 part workshop starting on Wed. Feb. 23rd (6pm-8pm) and if you've ever wanted to make your own jewelry - this class is a great introduction. We'll cover: working with jewelry tools, wrapping wire and rings, creating your own earring hooks and clasps, types of metals, patinas and finishes, suppliers, design and assembling pieces. If you are unsure about tools, techniques and materials this is a great way to get started! More info about this class here.
Oh I absolutely adore HBO's Big Love. Chloe Sevigny is so good - remember her as Jennie from Kids?
Anyway, the drama is huge this season. Secret babies, forbidden love, and "sealings" you really wouldn't expect. I
love me some serious drama - I think I get that from my grandma who
used to be obsessed with her dramas (Dynasty, One Life to Live, and oh
what was that one... Murder She Wrote!!). Do you have a drama obsession? And
if so, what's your show of choice?
*UPDATE* I've chosen 24 winners! The first 12 will go up tonight. The next 12 will go up on March 1st. If you didn't make it this time, don't worry! I'll give away new spots on (or around) March 15th.
