my baby takes the morning train

Yesterday I took a train with my friend Ann to New York City to see Rosanna, my friend from Italy. I'm so glad we didn't go TODAY.

Here is the gift that I made for Rosanna.



And here are all of the gifts she showered me with. It was Christmas. And I was as happy as Christmas, let me tell you.




We walked all day long from Midtown to Greenwich Village. Here is what I bought from the Garment District.




We met so many wonderful people. My favorite new friends are the guys from Lou Lou Button and Michael Shine from Tinsel Trading Company. Hello, guys if you're out there. Holla!

I am so very tired. It was a long, long day. But now I have a lot of catching up to do. I have something good to tell you about tomorrow. With pictures.

Amy,

Do you know how embarrassing it is to sit at my desk at work and drool? Okay, not literally, but figuratively, for sure!

What beautiful treasures you have, lucky girl....

Your teacup doll is just ADORABLE. I blinked when I saw your friend's name, Rosanna. It was my mom's, too. She was buried on May Day five years ago. She would have loved that idea! I really enjoy your blog, thanks for sharing with us :-)
