life : weekend bits


line, fireman, tulips, cake, purl twice

hello! i hope you all had a nice weekend! mine started out on friday when i met line for lunch at the chelsea market and then a walk through high line park. she was visiting nyc with her sweet family and is cute as a button, they all are. although we've never met in person, it felt like we were like old friends. she was only here for a few days, so i really appreciated her spending the afternoon with me. the funny thing is that we didn't really take many photos.

saturday, we took charlie to see my brother and celebrate his birthday. he has the sweetest house and it was a good day out for charlie. it's been a year since helen passed away and he likes my brother who is always up to something new (crazy - new engine for his vintage corvette!), so it was a good distraction.

sunday was rainy and we saw a really good movie from argentina - the secret in their eyes. the plot centers around a retired court employee who decides to write a book about an old rape/murder case, but it's so much more. the romance, comedy, suspense and politics kept us talking about the twists and turns all evening. the main thing that resonated with me is how we can not deny our true passion and that it's never too late to live it if we're not afraid.

we also visited purl's new store and it is fantastic! not only beautiful and spacious, but a fine example of a business success story during a difficult economic climate. i picked up some nani iro oilcloth for our kitchen table as a special treat.

that's all for now. i'll be back tomorrow with some sunshine photos and an award.

xo, cindy

ps after reading this article in new york magazine, i just couldn't resist any longer, so please do follow us on twitter and we'll return the favor!

I like the picture of the cake! It looks soooooooo good!

I'm glad you got to spend time with Charlie. I don't know him, but I have an affection for him.

I've been reading about Foursquare all over the place. Pretty amazing!

Megan Coyle said...

Sounds like a fantastic weekend :) and I love your photos from all your weekend fun.

Sounds like a great weekend! I'm so glad to hear my buddy, Charlie is doing well and he had a Happy Birthday! I love corvettes, my mom has a 1970 and I've done a couple poker runs with her. What year is your brother's?

Yay, I'm so glad you're on twitter! It's addicting, and frankly much better than fb!!!

Dawn said...

gosh, sounds like you had a terrific weekend! all i did was sit at home :( well, i was a bit productive, but how nice it would have been to go out and play with friends and family!

Bella Sinclair said...

Happy Birthday, Kim!

And is that...oooh...firefighters lunching? Yummy.

Sounds like a fantastic weekend! Wow, that is a great shop. I want to live in it.

cindy said...

purl is a fantastic shop! i want to move in, too!
twitter is addicting and i need to get a handle on social networking time in general. might as well tackle it all at once. fb is not for me.
line - glad you made it home safe and sound.
candi - your mom's vette sounds great! he has a 1962 and said it was mint when he bought it, but hasn't stopped fixing it up!

Fifi Flowers said...
