I've been trying to focus on the planning and production of Shorely Chic, making things, mostly my papered and shell frames, and continuing to collect new and fabulous vintage items. I have my first craft fair coming up in November, the second one in Chappequa, NY the following weekend, and my launch party the next weekend at my parent's home in Stamford, CT - any readers in the area?? I'd love to have you :) I'm thinking of having about 40-60 people, family, friends, and co-workers of mine and my mother's, champagne, wine, yummy hor d'oeuvres, and pretty "Beachy-Keen" cupcakes made my friends at Batter Up Cupcakes! I will definitely be looking to http://craftshowdesigns.blogspot.com/ for help with that :)
I've uploaded some fun photos of my week:
my favorite, Bryant Park :)
the zillions of fabrics at Mood Fabrics and other stores in the garment district (upper 30's in between 7th and 8th avenues)
Hands-down the best latte and French pastries in the city at Balthazar
I was bored in the longest cab-ride of my life due to traffic
A really delicious pizza from Mario Batali's Otto in the West Village
This is me and my mom in my apartment
me and dad :)
just an awesome guy on I-95 driving a vintage purple cadilac, a purple sweater, and purple-rimmed glasses - AMAZING
me, pathetic at golf but trying!
new orange carnival glass vintage bowl
I love carnival glass - it is so vintage-y looking and unique. So pretty for Halloween!
Vintage Metal Dove Mail Holder
So, that was my week in review. I hope to update sooner than next Monday, but if it doesn't happen, I hope you all have an awesome week!
