A New York Minute - West Village!

I have had quite a hectic past week and it definitely took a toll on my blogging! Run down was as follows :lunch at The Enchanted Home, meetings, painting pumpkins, installing art show,  planning front  porch landscaping, ORC,  shopping for Napa, and finally a trip to NYC for my sisters Birthday!
Im winded how about you!  
I went to a crazy, fun and slightly risque play in the Village yesterday called The Money Shot. My sister who is also my design partner  dabbles in screenplays and loves off broadway plays with relevant subject matter and great writing! This one hit it for sure. Current, witty, controversial and actors all good looking! If you are open minded this is a must see.
We also hit a fun restaurant  for lunch that included warm blankets for outside seating. We shopped at some stores and finished off the day with a great cup of coffee and of course "treats!!  Here a few suggestions when doing the West Village, enjoy.

You should have seen us bundled up like little old ladies! Eat at The Quarter!

Again discretion is advised but this cover doesn't happen in the play so dont worry!

Then I was so cold that I had to buy a coat! So I went to a lovely store on Bleecker where the sales staff couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. I will make it my regular from now on!

  1. Definitely a whirlwind week! Love the coat you chose. And, love the idea of the blankets for outdoor seating this time of year.

  2. Hi Karolyn! Sounds like a fun visit to the West Village - that's where I stayed when I was in NYC and just loved it. So much charm and character. I didn't get a chance to shop, but would have loved an extra day just to explore the neighborhood.

    Do you have your Napa itinerary set yet? A great winery to visit is Round Pond - you can arrange a fantastic lunch/tasting out on their gorgeous patio, the wine is delicious (we've been club members for years) and they also have terrific estate bottled olive oils:

    What a fun trip - It's one of my favorite getaway spots! XOXO
