A New York Minute - West Village!

I have had quite a hectic past week and it definitely took a toll on my blogging! Run down was as follows :lunch at The Enchanted Home, meetings, painting pumpkins, installing art show,  planning front  porch landscaping, ORC,  shopping for Napa, and finally a trip to NYC for my sisters Birthday!
Im winded how about you!  
I went to a crazy, fun and slightly risque play in the Village yesterday called The Money Shot. My sister who is also my design partner  dabbles in screenplays and loves off broadway plays with relevant subject matter and great writing! This one hit it for sure. Current, witty, controversial and actors all good looking! If you are open minded this is a must see.
We also hit a fun restaurant  for lunch that included warm blankets for outside seating. We shopped at some stores and finished off the day with a great cup of coffee and of course "treats!!  Here a few suggestions when doing the West Village, enjoy.

You should have seen us bundled up like little old ladies! Eat at The Quarter!

Again discretion is advised but this cover doesn't happen in the play so dont worry!

Then I was so cold that I had to buy a coat! So I went to a lovely store on Bleecker where the sales staff couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. I will make it my regular from now on!

ORC the Waiting Game!

Well, besides painting the pieces white which are coming along fine, I am waiting for rug, hardware, and dressers!! All were suppose to be in stock but low and behold we are in a waiting pattern. My daughter also threw a monkey wrench into the equation by telling me she really wants touches of dark brown in the room and does not like the art I picked! It was her photo of ballerinas that she did in class that I love and of course now she wants nothing to do with it..  so back to the drawing board!
Ah the perils of parenthood!  Here is were I am at now waiting, debating and painting.  I love how everyone else's ORC challenges are turning out, you should all really be proud there is such talent in this world and we should all give each other a pat on the back!

A Truly Enchanted Home!

I was very grateful to be part of the wonderful blogger luncheon put on by the ultimate hostess Tina from The Enchanted Home! Tina's house is even more beautiful in person if that is at all possible considering her posted images are stunning. There were a group of fabulous bloggers in attendance that I truly learn something new from each time we meet.  Even the lovely Jeanne of I-"Dream- Of came all the way from Seattle! I forgot to tell her how much I loved her dress, this woman has great style. To see gorgeous photos from the event go to The Enchanted Home  you will not be disappointed. 

Did I mention she is a fantastic cook too!

Gifts from many of the talented bloggers!

These darling cards from I -Dream-Of

Lovely and Pink from the beautiful Pretty Pink Tulips!

As if lunch wasnt enough Tina also gave us each a wonderful candle with the tag designed by Jeanne of I-"Dream- Of!
