Montauk + Shelter Island

Posted in Travel by Shannon South on December 6, 2010

This weekend we took a drive out to Long Island to check out Shelter Island and Montauk as possible wedding sites. Wow, it was cold and windy… and pretty deserted… but still beautiful. I had no idea how much farmland was in LI and so many of them were selling Christmas trees directly from the land.

Remembering Paris

Posted in Travel by Shannon South on November 13, 2010

We spent last New Years in Paris and it was cold. Pulling my favorite winter coat out of the closet reminded me of one of the last times I wore it (since I was living in San Francisco then). I have a feeling it’s going to be a cold winter in New York.

48 hours in San Francisco

Posted in Travel by Shannon South on August 24, 2010

Ed and I just got back from a non-stop weekend in San Francisco. We attended a birthday party on Friday night, a baby shower on Saturday day… I did a trunk show with Kirsten Muenster at Ma(i)sonry Napa (1st pic) on Sunday and lastly, we went to our friends, Jeannie & Bryan’s wedding at the Stable cafe in the Mission on Sunday night! These are photos (2nd pic) from a photo booth at their gorgeous wedding.

Asheville, North Carolina

Posted in Travel by Shannon South on May 27, 2010

This just about sums up Asheville for me. After days of fast travel food and southern cookin, I was desperate for a nice, healthy salad. Asheville was like finding the holy grail and I found myself constantly comparing it to San Francisco. We ate at the yummy Laughing Seed twice in our short time there.

Nashville, Tennessee

We visited the Hatch Show Print shop, where posters for most of the greatest American musicians were (and still are) designed and printed. Hatch has not changed its printing methods and is a true hand-crafted art form.
Take a tour.

Bacchanal Wine Bar

The road trip has been fantastic. We have about 1500 miles til we reach our final destination of Brooklyn, NY. Such a wonderful finale to an inspiring trip! We’ve been meeting and interviewing just a small handfull of the people working to make this country more awesome – Ed is making a documentary… If you can recommend anyone between Mississippi & NYC that we might want to meet, please suggest! Here is more info on the project.

Marfa, Texas

Posted in Travel by Shannon South on May 19, 2010

Marfa is a place where any stress you might have immediately melts away. The air is so warm and dry in this incredible little town is in the middle of the western Texas desert. At night, the sky is filled with stars. Donald Judd basically “put Marfa on the map” when he moved there to build his Chinati Foundation (with backing from the Dia Foundation). There you can see Donald Judd’s 100 aluminum boxes, John Chamberlain’s steel sculptures from old cars, as well as other artists from that period.

We stayed in a beautifully renovated vintage trailer at this fantastic campground called El Cosmico.

PS – on the way there, we passed the “Prada Marfa” art installation. Fantastic!
