Lena Wolff

I realized today that it's been a long while since I've posted
work by another artist that's inspired me. So I was delighted
to find Lena Wolff over on design*sponge and thought I'd
share her exquisite work with you over here.
For a more in depth description of her ideas behind her work
visit here.

May Recipe

This month and for the remainder of the Summer we will be
publishing one recipe instead of 2 mid month.
We'll be making an extra effort to incorporate as many of the
month's ingredients as possible.

So, without further ado, Sung has come up with this beautiful
salad to brighten up any table and tantalize your taste buds.

May I Salad

Salad May I with Sweet Yogurt Dressing

The month of May offers some outstanding seasonal vegetables with a unique combination of
taste, color, and health benefits.
Detoxifying asparagus stalks shoot up like mini-monuments to the sun.
Rhubarb's ruby red stalks (the leaves are poisonous) balance stomach acid
and help with indigestion offering a tartness that trumps a barrel of lemons.
Dainty radishes enliven with a spicy punch in a deceptively beautiful package.
Eating any combination of these in a salad, especially in their raw state,
sends the refreshing breeze of spring days through your digestive and circulatory systems.

4 cups baby spring greens, rinsed
1 stalk (or less) rhubarb, cut into small pieces
6 radishes, quartered or sliced into thin rounds
6 stalks asparagus, blanched or raw, cut on the bias
1/4 cup nuts (pistachio, pecan, walnut) coarsely chopped

1/2 cup yogurt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp maple syrup
1/2 lemon, juiced
fresh mint leaves (chopped)

Clean & cut salad ingredients as indicated by the recipe
Whisk together ingredients for the dressing in mixing bowl
Drizzle over veggies and serve immediately

Governors Island This Summer

I've been busy planning another fabulous market however this one
continues from June 5th through September 6th on Governors Island.

I'm part of a wonderful team of independent etsy artists
known as the NewNew and we've rallied together to take over one of the
Governors houses on the Island and set up shop.
It's going to be a truly great 3 months with special events and one-of-a-kind
products being made.
Needless to say I've produced a Governors Island tea towel and print.
It was such fun scouring the web for historical figures and icons.
This will also be available in my shop from June 1st.
