If being the author of her own fabulous art blog {Art Hound} isn’t quite enough to make you jealous of Kate Singleton, then her personal art collection should definitely do the trick! Kate is a blogger/art consultant who puts her money where her mouth is. She is slowly building an amazing collection of work for her lovely apartment in Brooklyn… which, by the way, was recently featured on Apartment Therapy. Yep. I’m officially jealous. And so is Kate:

I’m jealous of Sarah Rutherford

I’m jealous of artist/illustrator Sarah Rutherford whose old-timey line drawings grace the pages of the newly released “Frankies Spuntino Kitchen Companion and Cooking Manual”. The cookbook, like its eponymous Brooklyn restaurant, Frankies 457, is hot among Brooklyn’s back-to-basics gastronomic circle, and Sarah’s illustrations epitomize the aesthetic and culinary sensibilities of this crowd.

Although I’m not an artist myself, I’m jealous of Rutherford’s participation in such a cool, culturally-significant project. And I bet she spent quite a bit of time sampling the food she illustrated, which also makes me jealous. Regardless, when I buy my copy, I plan to put it to good use!

Ok, that’s it, I’m coming over. A fabulous apartment filled with art, and delicious food? I want to be your weekend guest! {Thanks for visiting Kate!}
