craft | martha's holiday sale
hello, hello! as mentioned, i met up with julia of red otter on saturday and we went to martha stewart's holiday craft sale. there are two things i don't do well when i'm with people other than scott - shop & take photos of the sights. julia has a sweet new baby and all i kept thinking was don't let anything happen to william's mom! but, julia's photos of the day are terrific - see here. it was really wonderful to meet her in person and get caught up in the enthusiasm of a first time visitor to the city.
there was a perpetual line at the craft show and just about every place else we went (crazy!), but i did manage to get a very cool moravian star made using a nyc subway map & wax by michigan winter, a wonderful heart floral print by rifle paper co. and a cameo made of resin by shawn powers. last year i picked up the antique basalt creamer from bower antiques and tucked in a musical version of my butterfly garland for the photo. it seems i gravitate towards black during martha's craft shows. i guess i really am a new yorker!
ps some other things that also looked wonderful were - original paintings from kiki and polly, softies by sian keegan, embroideries by coral & tusk, and holiday ornaments by la la laurie (should have bought one, but couldn't decide which to choose).
