Every once in a while, I dream of a free-standing tub that is not necessarily a clawfoot.  Something more modern, more sleek, with more oomph.  While walking by the Boffi showroom in Georgetown yesterday, I discovered the answer to anyone’s prayers – at a going rate of, oh, $30K.  I think I’ll go soak in my perfectly fine Jacuzzi, but dang if this isn’t heaven.

Ah, total luxist envy of pro cappucino makers!!

While strolling to a meeting today in Old Town, I stopped for a cappucino at Fontaine Caffee & Creperie. Wow! What a gorgeous place! But what struck me was the purty espresso machine. I love Gaggia, I love copper, but this one – this was special!  It’s a La Speziale.

It was especially fun to take the shot with the Hipstamatic app on my iPhone. Vintagey and so chic.
