This last week was fun and exciting. Great friends, Amelia from Arizona & Wendy from Louisiana flew in for a few days of fun! We found fun, beautiful & inspiring things along the way that are sure to please the artistically minded~
~wendy, dani, marie, amelia~
Along our travels we stopped into to see the lovely Marie Patterson. Luckily, Marie and I only live 15 minutes from each other!
We also stopped to meet Doreen Kassel of Uncommon Creatures and her hubster's photography studio! Very sweet that these two work together each day in their large studio space.
We headed to New Hope, Pa and...
~We found the giant nutcracker and it drew us in like a beacon~
These sugary sweet nutcrackers are reminiscent of the old Glitterville pieces. These are produced by Kurt Adler.
sorry for low res
While in there I saw these cuties by Janell Berryman of Pumpkinseeds Folk Art! I always get so excited whenever I see Janell's work in stores. Maybe because, I know what goes behind getting pieces into reproduction and I always find it so fun to see a dear friends work in a store!
~We noshed @ Marsha Browns in New Hope & enjoyed the gorgeous scenery inside as well as about town~
Mannequin/doll display beside Love Saves the Day
Spent the day in NYC!!!
I love that I was with Amelia for her first trip into NYC!
Time Square was UBER busy which included this guy who wanted a $1.00 per picture so he could buy weed...lol
It was funny because Amelia was just saying how she recently caught an episode of Jerseylicious and then I spotted Alexa (Glam fairy) from the show!
Amelia (Amy) of SweetB Folk Art has a serious candy addiction.
She was a total blur in Dylans Candy Bar! I finally caught this shot of her in what I think maybe a slap happy candy coma!?
~I tried on fun hats in the Fashion District and can't wait to wear them at this years events~
Happily Shopping in NYC!!
We found amazing displays throughout the city. This is the Louis Vuitton display, featuring handbags created in the shape of various wildlife!
snake, cat, owl, raccoon, forg, crab and more! INCREDIBLE!!
~notice the tiny heart necklace in the roots~
~notice the sweet lock on the doorknob~
Both available at www.Tiffanys.com
These tiny lil scenes (approx. 6 inches tall) made my heart flutter..so sweet and scarily well done!
Sunday we had to take Amelia to the airport ;(
On the way back from the airport, Wendy and I decided to drown our sorrow's in two world famous Philly cheese steaks!
Really nice guy's at Pat's!
the street at Geno's
Finally, Wendy and I headed home to Casa Nelson to prepare for the next days duties which included costume changes!
Here is a hint of what we were up to and hope to share very soon!
So, now I am coming down from my friendship high ;) They have left and I must get back to reality ;(
Hope you enjoyed!!
