Blowing Kisses to NYC

Tinsel Trading, like sugar for my notion sweet tooth.

I know they say everything is bigger in Texas, but New York might be runner up.
I think people could tell I was not a native with my head back and lens in the air everywhere I went.  What do you think?
Artists & Fleas, kind of like a real live Etsy gathering of shops.  Ryan found a neat, graphic t and I a little gift.
[You'd think my neck would still be aching...]
And this little scene I thought belongs with those of Kojo's Color My Summer series just launched!  You'll want to follow along!
I love the first exit from the subway into this breathtaking city, the smells, the sounds, and the excitement.
ABC Home, where we were unable to get into their new restaurant.  Oh, to have connections. But we did enjoy perusing their wares anyhow.

Can you spy my little Ry?  
He's holding my roasted cauliflower sandwich in this petite, unpretentious place of a restaurant-one of our repeats of past visits.
Miss Liberty
Framed Skyline
Stray Seating
Does this count as a haircut?
The last day we were there was so chilly for these two southerners that we stopped to warm our bones and get some hot chocolate and pain au chocolat.  
Okay.  That's it for my NYC photos.  Promise.  Now getting back to business.  Especially since I just finished about 73,143 loads of laundry with 2 to go.  I should have taken a picture for you, but I was on such a roll that I didn't want to interrupt my folding rhythm.  Now Clover has clothes to wear again.  That's always nice.


  1. Loving these pictures! So glad you two got to get away! What a sweet picture of the two of you.

  2. Your pictures left me pining for the city! I lived in NYC for a semester in college and had the time of my life. Looks like you did too!

  3. I LOVE seeing your pics of NYC. I will hopefully go there someday, and with a local so that I can experience all the hidden treasures. Please plan another trip soon! hehe ;)

  4. Great pictures! I have never been to NYC, it looks so different from my little southern town.

  5. What is it about that city that you can feel so energised by the memory of it? Your pics gave me that feeling again!

  6. love your pictures, especially all the random chairs! you two are such a cute couple~

  7. were all those chairs abandoned on the corner??? like free sidewalk furniture? I could do a whole set of dining chairs in one sweep!

  8. You've got quite an eye, my sweet!

  9. New York is part of our turf, but it's always fun to see it through other's eyes. I think it gives a different kind of glimpse.
    Only, I believe that was the Manhattan bridge. The Brooklyn Bridge has stone supports.

  10. Love your photos. Again....I'm starting to think New York, New York, what a wonderful town!

  11. Ok, nothing to do with NY, but can I just say I totally relate to you on the laundry front. Ever since we opened our garden for spring, the laundry has been relentless. A casualty of five kids!

  12. Ah thanks for the lovely visual trip. Glad you had a blast!

  13. Sparrow's nest-no, they were in the front of a store in chinatown for sale, but cool nonetheless.

    Sherry-ah. You are correct.

    Roselady-Glad you can relate!

  14. You know, now that we are closer to NYC, we're thinking about visiting. But wouldn't dare go alone....


Be a lamb & tell me what's on your mind.
