I am so sorry for leaving you with these silly photos of my shoes for so long...but I've been away for a week in the lovely Brooklyn! with the boys being away I decided I could take some time off and went to visit my lovely college friend Nora, she lives in Park Slope and oh my...it had definitely become one of my favorite new places! the last time we spent time in Brooklyn we stayed with friend in Williamsburg which was also great but this time I could totally see us living in Park Slope, beautiful homes on tree lined streets, great local cafes were everyone gathers in the morning, great shops and restaurants, and a minute away from Manhattan, I know it's the absolute opposite from Vermont but after living in big cities all my life I really miss it sometimes.
I didn't take any photos, actually I forgot my camera at home which sort of felt like I was missing a limb... but here is some of the things I did:
Francis Bacon at the Met So powerful!
Felting exhibit at the Cooper Hewitt, I learnt so much new things about felting techniques, if you are in the area and love felting it's a must!!!
MJ trimmings, got a lot of beautiful trimmings for the winter pouch collection
Tinsel Trading perfect for millinery flowers
Toho Shoji great bead shop
The City Bakery for the absolute BEST chocolate chip cookie I have ever had!!!! and also a great lunch buffet style.
ABC carpet and Home what can I say? museum like perfection!
Anthropolgie I wish there was on in Vermont!!
H&M, hmmm a little too 80's for me, been there-did that...
Fairway market in Brooklyn it's right on the water, what a view and the best place for a cheap and super tasty lunch!
Ikea in Brooklyn, with a FREE water taxi to and from Manhattan downtown, boy was that fun! I got sheets for the boys and a few things for Jonathan's college dorm room.
