from pseudo terrace to garden

we moved from new york city to london this summer. even though a lot of things have improved (especially as far as living space is concerned) nyc and our friends there are truly missed.

who wants ice cream?

inspired by the post below we set up our own ice cream parlor. the popsicles and ice cream scoops are made of salt dough. it turned out to be an excellent material to  create durable figures. the only down point is that it takes a while  for it to harden. we then painted the ice cream with acrylic paint.
