Herb & Dorothy.

I watched Herb & Dorothy last week. If you haven't seen it - watch it! It's hilarious, fascinating and bananas. This couple from NYC, called, yep, Herb & Dorothy amassed the most important minimalist art collection in the US, maybe even the world. On a postal worker's salary. What?!

I have to confess that I find minimalist art hard to enjoy. It's a bit cerebral for me and I like a lot of bedaaaazzzlement, but listening to Herb & Dorothy talk about it makes it accessible even for a dullard like myself.

I just got this today which reminded me of H&D.

Did you know there's more salt in a bowl of cornflakes than in a packet of salted peanuts?!
I'm reading a book about condiments, sounds boring but it's fascinatoring.

HIHIHIHIHI! Friends! Sorry, I've been AWOL. I was with my Mum in the south of France for her 60th bee-day. I'm back! Today! And look! The lovely Melissa Coker - of delicious clothing line WREN - mentioned the bookstore on Refinery 29! As one of her favourite spots no less! I am beyond flattered and honoured. Swoonies.

Check out the post here please and thank you!
