New York









Well, what can I say?

It was fantastic!

We took a boat trip to the Statue of Liberty, stood on top of the Empire State Building, went to see ‘9 to 5’ the musical in Times Square, had ice cream soda’s in a diner and of course, shopped. 

I loved Anthropology!

I also took myself to the Folk Art Museum which was lovely, and saw an exhibition of Kaleidoscope quilts by Paula Nadelstern. 

I got back full of ideas and happy memories to find this dead bug on the kitchen table.

Henry had very kindly saved it for me….

There’s no place quite like home, is there?

    Hi Janet, glad to hear you had a great time in New York. Anthropologie is a fantastic shop, just a pity they don’t have branches over here. My demonstration went well this weekend amd I handed out some of your dog leaflets.

    I’ve put up a couple of pics on my blog of a recent adaptation of the houses, hope you like them.

    Just for you! Great present. So glad you had fun.

    And if Anthropologie ever comes to the UK, I am done for.

    Don’t you love to travel, just to come home? I really don’t know if that is the best part. So glad that you all had fun!

    Well, that sounds like quite the welcome !
    It’s kind of Henry to have saved the bug. Really rather like one of our puppies. Only that we don’t get bugs. We get rats.
