Travel: NYC

Greetings from NYC:) I had a last minute change of plans, which leaves me in NYC until tomorrow.

With only a few hours to play in the city that never sleeps, we did a little window shopping and explored Central Park. In the snow of course!

Meet Jacque. She's my co-worker, partner in crime, and friend extrodinaire! Oh, and she's my boyfriends sister too!

The city is beautiful! Although I've visited many times, it's my first time to see this busy city covered in white. Lovely!

Travel: NYC

Im headed to the Big Apple tomorrow morning. Its a quick two-day trip, but should still be fabulous.  I've spent quite a bit of time in NYC, but I'm always happy to visit again!  The purpose of this trip is mainly business. The jewelry studio I work for (Lotus Jewelry Studio) is exhibiting at the New York International Gift Show. It's a HUGE international show that takes up several NY buildings/convention centers, and draws thousands of exhibitors twice a year. So while we'll have Saturday to sight-see, Sunday will be all business as we walk the show and work the booth.

The one and only shop I'm dying to go in in the city is Tinsel Trading company. I CAN'T WAIT to see this place after reading about it for so many years! I imagine my version of heaven behind their front doors!  I'd love to find some more trim similar to the ones I picked up in Paris. Wish me luck!

I'll be sure to post again upon my return with tons of pics :) Hope you all have a good Friday and great weekend!

Vintage: Christmas

Just curious- how long is it acceptable to leave your Christmas trees up?

Small silver feather tree filled with the most beautiful vintage ornaments.

And in the dining room; a lovely old white feather tree filled to the gills with pink and aqua vintage ornaments!
