How amazing is this! An actual tent, called “Fully Booked“, by FIELDCANDY. It’s well constructed too — not just a fun showpiece. This is a limited run of 195, made in England and available for about $750 USD.

FIELDCANDY makes a whole assortment of fun tent designs, check their site for more.

grounds for sculpture : hamilton new jersey

I spent a day at Grounds For Sculpture in Hamilton, NJ (an hour’s ride from Penn Station) this past weekend. Such an exciting discovery! I really enjoyed it.

It was founded in 1992 by American artist, John Seward Johnson II on the former New Jersey State Fairgrounds site. His work is prominent throughout, but there’s also a wide variety of artists with work exhibited. Wandering through the gardens is a thrill as you stumble upon sculptures in little nooks and clearings. The gardens are beautiful as well — the trees there are worth visiting in and of themselves.

Had an impossible time choosing which photos to post. So yeah, I posted a-million.

roadtrip-2

We took to the road to drive through the vast mountains of the Sierra Gorda, a region north of Queretaro city. Some of the roads took us high into the clouds, as the road wound in hairpin turns through misty little villages. This is an archeological site from the 5th century, the ruins of Las Ranas.

queretaro-1

My folks have taken up residency this month in the Mexican city of Queretaro, a beautiful old city about three hours north of Mexico City. I’m here all week with my sis and will share some scenes as we explore town. Came upon this enchanting gate on a walk this Sunday.
