An Alligator Flyswatter. Brilliant.
I like the word "flyswatter". It was once use to describe the odd shape of my friend's cul-de-sac: "We live at the top part of the flyswatter", she said. That summer we watched "Dirty Dancing" on VHS every day we were not at the beach.
This American Alligator flyswatter is available on a great site called Colonel Littleton out of Tennessee. It's $310 and makes a wonderful gift for your friends on the UES who have everything and definitely do not need flyswatters (it can be monogrammed). Get it for the people who don't get it. Make it awkward.
Happy Memorial Day!

Dare to Resist

The lure of this gold leopard ring has compelled me to write twice in one day.
Available on Vivre by Daphna Simon, $1750.

Remind, What Season is This?

Looking ahead to Fall may not be entirely fair since Spring has not fully arrived in New England. But we must plan ahead! Below is an incredible Bottega Veneta bag from the Fall 2009 Collection. Happy Thursday.

The Lake

Happy Mother's Day...
Today is the official opening of my favorite freshwater-adjacent burger (grilled cheese) stand: Eddie's Grill at Geneva-on-the-Lake, Ohio.
Here's a shout out to my Midwestern homies chowin' on Eddie's burgers and frozen lemonade today. (p.s. Let me know if you get number 36.) And don't forget the Madsen's Donut! This iconic blue and white striped box may no longer be tied with white string, but it will contain the best donuts you will ever eat. That is not nostalgia that tastes that glazed donut that I swear is marinated in sugary syrup for at least a day...they have a secret recipe known only by the owner. Or maybe by at least two people, since 1938.Delicious simplicity.
