Happy New Year’s Eve! I hope you are spending the evening in your favorite way – be that at a party or in a quiet place away from the crowds. We are off to spend the night with friends in a few hours. Ada is planning her outfit and I am feeling just a little thankful to not have to clean up tomorrow morning. Our New Year’s Eve party last year was a fun way to celebrate our first year in this new house.
We are celebrating our one year anniversary here at Domestic Space! Thank you to all of you who follow along with our lives and projects. We love your enthusiasm and ideas and comments. We are excited to make the next year in this space even better and we’ve have been working on lots of new ideas. We hope you enjoy!
We spent yesterday with friends doing some things that make me love living here in New York. If you are in the area, be sure to visit Ann Hamilton’s installation at the Park Avenue Armory. The Armory is amazing on its own, and the addition of huge swings and billowing sheets of silk has made the space magical. We also made our first visit to Jane’s Carousel since it survived Hurricane Sandy. (We discovered that our friend Jen used to ride the same horses as a child when they were housed at their original location in Ohio). We were thrilled to find the horses in almost perfect shape above ground. (The organ is being repaired and the live music has been replaced by cd’s until March). The carousel’s protective box is warm and sunny on a winter day.
Cheers to 2013!
