Still Life

My haul from yesterday all cleaned up.

If I had to pick a favorite, it would have to be the art deco-esque clear glass bottle to the right of the twin cobalt glass bottles. I wonder what it's original use was?

Such a great day, thank you Chelsea, Ginny and Matt.

Bottle Beach at Dead Horse Bay

Today will go down in history as one of my favorite days I've had thus far in New York City. Chelsea, Ginny, Matthew and I set off for what would be an adventured packed excursion out of the city. If you're ever in the mood for a treasure hunt I suggest you head out to Bottle Beach, you will not be disappointed!

Ginny Branch Stelling's account of our day sums it up perfectly.

Great Weekend

The weather this weekend was superb, Spring surely has sprung! I spent Saturday and Sunday up on my roof enjoying the sunshine.

On Saturday I got a sandwich, a bottle of cheap champagne, climbed up on the roof and relaxed overlooking the city. It was Heaven. I had such a great time that today I repeated my roof top adventure with Abby. We talked, we laughed, we napped, we had an amazing day.

My roof is my new favorite hangout spot.

In My Spare Time

Or lack there of, I didn't realize the deadline to complete my 12yo cousin's dance recital dress (see previous post) was in just a few short days. Needless to say its 2:35am and I just finished. Quick stop to Fedex tomorrow morning before work for a little overnight delivery action and then we'll be right back on schedule for her to sparkle on thursday.

I hope you like it Rachel!

Spring Has Sprung

Abby and I started our herb and vegetable garden mere days ago. With advice from our local gardening shop and a whole lot of sunshine, things are really getting started.

Abby is in charge of the chamomile, thyme, mesclun, and fenugreek, I'm in charge of the tomatoes, green and yellow beans. Tomorrow we're heading to home depot for some repotting supplies to prepare for the big move outside, that is when New York heats up a little more.

More to come.
