My fiance and i arrived early in New York, fresh off the red-eye flight to start our day at 7:00am.
We excitely gulped down some coffee and started our journey....
Our first stop was a street filled with flower and decor shops.
Remarkably, this "flower market" opens at 4am, we were able to enjoy all the sights and smells while the sun was still coming up!

We found a shop filled with Asian natural fibers, perfect for weaving, knitting, and crochet...
Their ready-made samples were beautiful!
I couldn't wait to check out this next shop...
We found a shop that manufactures beautiful mannequins--i've been dreaming of having my own mannequin for a long time now..
this mannequin pictured below has an interesting story, it actually survived hurricane Katrina and was returned to the store by its original owner.
we stumbled across this next shop on our way to the farmers market...
i think my eyes popped out of my head!
the timing couldn't have been any more perfect..
i grabbed a vintage table cloth for our picnic in the park..
i'll be sharing the rest of our trip with you next week.
i'm in the middle of packing, again.
Our family is off to Yosemite tomorrow with 3 other families...
i'm told there will be no internet or phone connection out there..
It might take me a little while longer to get caught up on everyone's blogs!
i miss reading all of your posts.
Have a wonderful week and weekend my friends..
and i'll see you next week!
until next time,
