After a grueling day – grooming, rolling snowballs for fun, getting all amorous, eating and more grooming – Japanese Macaques (aka Snow Monkeys) take a much needed rest at their local spa. Being a monkey is hard work, people.

Thanks to David M. and spDuchamp.

2012_03_23-dinnerparty.jpgThe evening was fabulous, from the before dinner cocktails to the last dollop of creme anglaise licked off the dessert spoon. And now you and your guests are lingering around the table, talking, winding down, finishing the last of the wine. An hour later, they're still there, still talking, still lingering and they don't look like they're at all ready to leave. It's getting late, you're tired, you still have the clean up to do and you have to get up early tomorrow morning.

Me and My Lizard

Sitting on the windowsill
Me and my lizard
Each other's what we hang on to

And when it's twelve o'clock,
We snuggle and share,
We never talk,
It's all in our stare

Just me and my lizard
Snorgling is what we do

Fave Frame ™

Most of us might wonder what these two have in common. Monika A. sees they have tails, nails and love.

It's always fun to see a home featured in a magazine in which you've actually seen in person.  I was lucky enough to be invited to a charity event that was held in the home of Alfredo Parades and Brad Goldfarb that is the cover story for the April issue of Architectural Digest.  Many people in the design world know Alfredo but if you don't, his official title is Executive Vice President and Chief Retail Creative Officer for Ralph Lauren.  His position encompasses not only store design but also special events and other projects.  Needless to say, his home is the epitome of chic not only inside but out.  If I had that amazing terrace, I would probably never go anywhere else. To find out all the details and read the entire story, click here

Alfredo is also being honored by DIFFA in New York this upcoming Monday at their annual Dining by Design event.  The event is open for public viewing all weekend and I'm headed over there today for AD Home Design Show and Cocktails by Design this evening which is in the same location.  I hear the Ralph Lauren table this year is larger than ever to celebrate this wonderful honor and I can't wait to see it.  If it's anything like Alfredo's apartment, I'm sure it will be amazing!
