Artist Metis Atash is known for her Swarovski crystals-encrusted ¬†sculptures of little Buddha Babies¬† (which she calls Funkybuddhas) sporting spikey mohawks or embellished with sassy sayings. This pretty Pink one, joyously flipping the bird in a shirt that proclaims “Darling, No is a Full Sentence” (which: truth) was spotted in the Eden Gallery in Soho.

Rudy’s is a famous Dive Bar in Hell’s Kitchen NYC that has a storied history going all the way back to 1933! Rudy’s 6-foot high Pink Pig mascot, known affectionately as The Baron, has stood vigil at the door for about twenty years, and was only stolen twice before they bolted his big butt down!

This week I went on an adventure! I had to make a trip down to Wall Street for the first time since our work-from-home directive went down in mid-March, because I had dermatologist appointment. Wee! After braving my masked-up, socially distanced subway ride, I had about 30 minutes to kill before my appointment time, and I enjoyed walking about in the financial district in relative solitude. It was awesome.¬† And what a fun surprise to see artist Arturo Di Modica’s now-iconic bronze statue, Fearless Girl, rocking a face mask to reflect the Covid Life we live in. Inspiring! If you happen to be in that area, you can find her on Broad Street standing across from the NYSE.

Nothing says “I live in a mid-century modern design-filled home” quite like a Pink Flamingo statue proudly displayed on the coffee table. Or so I am told.
