craft | martha's holiday sale

Martha's Craft Sale | 2010
Martha's Craft Sale | 2009

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!

xo, cindy

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).

I'm a bit jealous that you got to go - then I think about the lines and think maybe I'm okay with it.

Whaddaya mean you don't shop well without Scott? You came away with some classy and chic loot. Your butterflies look very content there. Sounds like it was a fantastic outing!
