Yesterday was special day for me, I got to meet a fellow blogger friend Ros Lee from Polkaros. Ros was visiting New York for a couple of weeks but unfortunately our wires got crossed and we only got to hang out for day, but nonetheless, I had fun, and hope you did too Ros. We only had a couple of hours before shops closed and I had to run home to my dogs so we had lunch first at Rucola, which has delicious salads and sandwiches for lunch, and the venue is super cute with it's rustic feel. After lunch we meandered around Boerum Hill (where I live) and Cobble Hill and perused the shops. First store we went into was the Jonathan Adler shop with mind-blowing objet d'art for the home and lots of super adorable needle point pillows. We stopped in a quite a few vintage and antique stores which my neighborhood is brimming with. Ros struggled with bringing home a letterpress drawer but the practicality of bringing it on the airplane won out, I on the other will be making a trip back to my neighborhood antique person on Sunday to see if I find one for my bedroom. Another shop we went into on Court street had a little friend waiting for Ros to take home, a Gnome, he was grinning because he knew he was going to go live in Tokyo. Hope you make it in one piece Mr. Gnome. With the Gnome in her bag we needed to find her some bubble wrap to wrap the precious find which we did at the UPS store, where I think my new friend was totally ripped off when they charged her $4 for a yard of bubble wrap!!! But we had no choice the stores were closing soon and she needed to wrap her little garden friend up for a safe plane ride. Next and last stop Flight 001 on Smith street (there's one in Manhattan), a store dedicated just for your cute travel needs, where Ros bought a nice collapsible bag to store her breakables for her flight home. Then I walked her to the train station and said our goodbyes. Have an awesome flight home Ros!!!! See you soon I hope!
