Welcome to the first of our line up of gift guides this holiday season. We hope some of our favorite items, for that country lovin’ girl, will inspire y’all to spread some cheer . . . and perhaps even a sick Texas marquee sign or a gorgeous striped wool throw.
Brazilian artist Ernesto Neto‘s latest installation is truly representative of it’s title: Madness Is Part Of Life. He and and his protegé Evandro Machado have suspended thousands of plastic balls with colorful netting, allowing visitors of the exhibition to walk along it’s winding path. The crazy, jungle gym-like structure, set against the pristine white walls of Espace Louis Vuitton Tokyo, is pretty genius – I’d love to see, feel, and experience it in person.
It’s Thanksgiving morning and the first thing I did was whip up one of my favorite holiday recipes . . . spiced nuts. I can’t quite remember where I first found the recipe but I make them year after year as they are insanely easy, utterly delicious, and the perfect compliment to those pre-dinner cocktails. I promise you’ll love them – you might even have the ingredients and enough time to make them today! xx
