Hello! we are back and what a truly amazing mini vacation we had. One word for it: INSPIRING.
Rainer and Mary Jo always reminds me that we need to take time for a recharging of our batteries... I won't go on today - describing our days spent enjoying ourselves as a family in one of our favorite spots in the world - but for now, will do it with captions and photos. I hope you enjoy the flavor. Our friend Tammy had her birthday party in Manhattan at Pier 17's Seqouia. What a view! I visited many design shops, met some wonderful people including Grace Bonney from design*sponge ( what a wonderful person!) for coffee and a walk around her part of Brooklyn in my travels! (a great treat!) We met up with Rena Tom, of Rare Device on 7th in Park Slope ... (what a delightful shop she has) and Greenjeans owner Amy, also a gorgeous shop - just next door to Rena's! So much to buy, so little time ... More in the days to follow as there is unpacking to do, design work to finish and paintings to wire up for delivery!
The word for the day is inspired by Mary Jo and seconded by the Cogan clan and endorsed by German husband - Zaftig - as in a juicy life, a pleasingly plump woman and all that you want.
