The HIT List: December


A list of random things that happened to catch my attention this month.

Adding to the Bucket List
The Foundation Louis Vuitton Arts Center in Paris is a tour de force of glass sails. 
Frank Gehry of course.

Chicago's Northerly Island is soon to be a public park with an amphitheater and a wildlife preserve with a forest, a prairie, and a reef. To be somewhat completed in 2015. Brought to the Windy City by Jeanne Gang, the architect behind Aqua Tower. 

Reading
Modern Farmer newsletter is a must in your Inbox. Beautifully written and designed, a treasure trove of surprising information. It will demystify Coca-Cola's new milk for you. No farming experience needed.

Coveting
Temple St. Clair jewelry, great horned owl ring in particular. Cartier move over! 

To'ak Chocolate at an "economical" price of $260 per 50 grams. But it comes with its own serial number and wooden tasting tweezers. 

Crafting
Well, attempting to occupy my son's time as he waits for Christmas by making paper snowflakes. If you don't know where to start just follow Martha.

Drinking
Oberweis Eggnog is the best hands down. Spiced or virgin, don't forget to sprinkle some nutmeg on the top.

Cooking
My Sharlotka always makes an appearance when the weather gets cold. It's comfort food, dessert style.


Pondering

The new Pantone color of the 2015, which is Marsala.
