Queenie's Treasury

Happy Saturday, my lovelies! It's a bright, crisp day here in New York, and I'm enjoying a weekend of theatre (I saw Present Laughter last night and am headed to Equivocation this afternoon!), cooking and design binging (Trip to Cooper-Hewitt? Check!). Before all that, though, it's time to take a look into the treasury.

First up this week, we have the (relatively new) foodblog Fresh New England. The three posts on El's front page all involve chocolate. And one involves whipped cream - and palmiers. Need I say more?

Next, some exciting news about Target's latest limited edition collaboration with a high-end design house: Liberty of London is coming to Tar-jay! My biggest memories of Liberty are of the dresses my mom would bring back for me from her annual piligrimage to London. When I was little, I thought they were each just another dress for church, but now I know better - those gorgeous, sprigged prints were works of art. Personally, I'm drooling over the teapot and the bike. And the dishes. And the pillows. And...anyhoo. The collection is due out on March 14th. In the meantime, I've settled for a hot-pink desktop background.

Finally, a super-cool flower arranging class: Bodega Flowers 101 from Sarah at Blossom & Branch. I am seriously considering signing up for one of the public classes, though this would also make an excellent wedding shower activity, no? (Via 100 Layer Cake.)

I'm far removed from knowledge when it comes to fashion (lol), but the Liberty of London styles I've seen are rather enticing. Bold, beautiful colors, with sophistication - great for Spring/Summer! Can't wait for the launch at Tarjay! ;)

I am in LOVE with the LOL bike. I'm going to run down to the front desk at my building right now to inquire about bike storage. I can't believe the price!

@Madame: Aren't they amazing? I just love Liberty. I may need to do a throw-pillow makeover and put my Marimekko to rest for a bit.

@CityMouse: ME TOO! I am soooo buying this, and some adorable capris and kerchiefs to go with it.
