I am coming up for air. My week in NYC was fast and furious. I’m sure my clients were wondering if I was ever going to leave. When I wasn’t overseeing drapery steaming…
I was furniture shopping like a crazy person. Why do I love these stuffed animals? When I go to ABC, where beautiful furniture and bedding is plentiful, I zero in on these guys. They crack me up, maybe it’s their hairy ears?
I did buy that white quilt with the yellow top-stitching, but I was tempted to get the ducks, rabbits, and black lamb too.
What do you think the sales clerk would do if she turned around and I was in this bed?
I bought the ottomans. I wanted the boots umbrella stand, but I wasn’t shopping for me. These were at Lillian August, if you are in NYC and haven’t been- you are missing out.
There is no way I could pass by this face and not go in for a little pup kiss. You know I love a b&w terrier.
There is something so comforting about the cluttered up Fishs Eddy. Maybe it’s my hoarding tendencies.
Have you been to Bunny Williams’ Treillage? It is to die for, I wanted one of everything in the shop (both shops). This cut paper art piece really wanted to go home with me.
I hauled stuff around like a pack mule. These two beauties followed me around for two days…
And every pack mule needs nourishment…
Marla, I was very bad. (It was worth it.)
Dinnered at Peels with friends Julie and Beth. Julie helped me with the furniture installation that week and I couldn’t have made it without her. A former Urban Grace intern in NYC comes in so handy, thanks Julie!!! Never a dull moment, over dinner Beth says, “Could someone go to the bathroom with me? I’m going to need some help.” She knew I would be missing Sloaney and wore a onesie. Her cute little romper buttoned all the way up the back… oh the price you pay for fashion.
Beth bought a box of mini-cupcakes for my bday. Baked by Melissa, bite size and SO delicious! Thanks for celebrating with me girls!!
NYC is always fun, but this time it was mostly a lot of work. I’m glad to be home with the fastest, sweetest, most stylish 21 month old girl I know! Her latest phrase is “Momma, hold you me?” and it’ll melt your heart right out of your chest. It started out “Momma hold you?” and after a week or so I corrected her “Momma hold me?” but she added the “me” to the end… “Momma, hold you me?”. It works.
