What do you do?

I am an artist and hat maker. And I recently started a blog called Femme et Fleur where I write about fashion, travel, humor and fun. My husband, Richard, is an artist.

How long have you lived on the LES?

We moved to Rivington Street in 1985. We lived there for 9 years, then 9 years in the West Village. We bought our Seward Park co-op in 2003.
