Kleenex in hand, I headed out Saturday morning for a quick market run. I wanted to get some fruit for the week and see if I could find some flowers to plant in the flower boxes outside my apartment. They've been looking pretty grim in recent weeks.
I was able to find some inexpensive plants to replace the weeds and add some color to my apartment. I'm sure it is a nicer view for my neighbors as well. Now, to keep all of these plants alive. This is the part that I am not so confident about.

|so fresh, so clean!|
Later in the day I wanted to check out some of the things happening for Design Week. Initially, I thought that there was just a big show out at Rho, the same place where the Fiera is held in December. But, after talking to several friends, and digging around on several websites I found a little information about some other happenings that I could check out. Here are some of the highlights of my stroll down Via Tortona.
|Via Tortona was a great place to check out some shops and designers.|
