What a great gift card. A tile worth $50 at the Painted Pot! The girl made a mosaic and the boy stuffed the stuffing into a stuffed animal. They enjoyed, I just wish it took longer than 45 minutes. Not much to do on this frozen day.
I also got the car inspected this morning. I take my car to Lee Brothers in Carroll Gardens. I am so glad the Village Voice got their address wrong in their great review. They would get too busy. Anyway they are my kinds of mechanic, I once asked Kenny Lee how much it would cost to bang out some of the dents in my 10 year old shit box. He said he would not do it. "I know where you live, Fresh Direct trucks will just smash you car as soon as I fix it."
Anyway I took a quick photo of his "waiting room/office". If I ever decide to paint a still life it would be this. I love the combination of auto parts and Asian herbs. The peeling paint makes the wall look alive.
