This past weekend I spent a wonderful several days in New York City with a dear friend Tania from the French blog Grange de Charme.
It was cold for this girl (me) who has lived in Miami for a very long time…but we had loads of fun, did lots of shopping, took many taxis, drank coffee, laughed a lot, ate some good (and not so good) food and saw many tourist sites.
SNOW! A big deal to me…since I hardly ever see it…
Snow quickly turns to slush in NYC.
We had a good meal at Balthazar.
Lillie’s NY…a must see bar & restaurant for the fabulous collection of antiques in the decor.
Some gifts from Tania…including French magazines (my beach home is in the new Shabby Style:-), hand made treasures from her studio and macarons from Laduree. We didn’t have time to visit the Laduree in NYC, so I was glad to have these and gobbled them in a flash.
Tinsel Trading…a shop filled with old and new millinery, ribbons, curiosities and more.
Tania and me in front of Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic Couture, where we shopped twice, lol. I’ll share what I purchased in another post soon.
All of the above shots taken in Shabby Chic Couture and I wanted to purchase it all, as you might imagine.
Another “must see” shop in NYC is ABC Carpet & Home.
All of the above are from ABC, that carries a wide variety of home furnishings to suit many decor styles from Bohemian to Modern Vintage. Very inspiring.
Some lovely fleurs at Dean & Deluca, where we stopped for coffee…
A shop window that promised Spring to come.
Night shots of the city that truly never sleeps and has great energy.
View from the Top Of The Rock…30 Rock that is, at Rockefeller Center…
Park Avenue area brownstones.
And lastly…Central Park, then headed to the airport and back home. All shots via iPhone and I hope to see you again soon NEW YORK CITY!
