I’m finally getting around to posting some neato pictures that I took in a few stores on my recent trip to New York City. The trip started off a bit rough, I was supposed to take the Acela train into the city, but there was a massive derailment the night before, so driving to southern Connecticut was the way to go via a local train.

123This is me in the hotel lobby bathroom looking a bit rough. I don’t do 5 am wake ups that well. The bathroom had a giant mirror in it, so I took a pic. Lovely bright orange tile as well! Wow, that overhead lighting is horrid 😉

We made our way to the Flatiron district first. There was a very cool art installation in Madison Park. It was brightly colored fisherman’s net, all piled up! It wrapped around trees, and made a sort of fence. Very cool.


The there was a crazy parade that had floats of all kinds of people dancing. I had so much fun watching them, I wiped out on the sidewalk as I walked, my new wedge sandal got caught in a crack. *dork moment*



Next was Wolf Home. Gorgeous fabrics!! Lots of burn-out velvets, embroidered silks.


Next was ABC Carpet and Home. I got all giddy-like there!!!! Fabulous stuff.


This was insanely beautiful pottery, with pressed lace designs. *want!*

The interior of the store has all of these old columns, distressed walls, chipped paint. LOVE!!!



142MISSONI!!!  Yum.




Ah…the Modern Floor. Pretty cool stuff! Great lighting!

Speaking of jewelry, I absolutely adored the way they displayed theirs.

Gardening is Good for your Soul…

I think my favorite thing to do is gardening. Why? Because when I am doing it, I am not worrying about a thing. I find it highly therapeutic and relaxing, even though I've digging and carrying pails of water around the yard. I've just moved to a new house, and I've...
