CHRISTMAS at MacKenzie Childs

Thousands of beautiful things to buy…………..at my favorite store in NYC.

BUT………..this little paper house is the only thing I bought!…………what was I thinking!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I did debate with myself……………to buy or not to buy………..WHITE SANTA……..but I already have four.

SKETCHES from my Dining Table

I am running out of space on my dining table………pencils taking over……..and I just ordered 200 more.


CLICK on the HONEY POT…………..

I am making “20 minute” sketches of whatever lands on the table in front of me.

AUTUMN on my TERRACE

The trees in Central Park are in their full glory……..just in time for the NYC MARATHON.

The view from my terrace…………overlooking the Dakota apartments.

 

 

 

The Autumn sunsets are always spectacular.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

EATALY MARKET • all things ITALIAN

It really is cheaper than a trip to ITALY..……..for anything and everything that you would find in ITALY.  Lydia Bastianich and Mario Batali have opened a market like no other in Manhattan.  You can spend a little or a fortune and you will love your purchase.

12 RESTAURANTS……….and 20 departments: BAKERY • FISH • CHEESE • PRODUCE • PASTA • BEER • WINE • BEVERAGES • BEAUTY • BOOKS • HOUSEWARES • COFFEE and ESPRESSO

FARMER MARKET FUN • then Lunch

We schlepp to the farmers market every Sunday morning and load up for the week.

My favorite farmers are always there………..flowers……….veggies……..cheese and fresh fish from Long Island.

When I get it home………….I love to photograph it all before I cook it.

Purple beans with garlic….okra…..fish with grilled squash and tomatoes.

Chickpeas salad……….spinach pie……….and Cosmos.

YUM YUM YUM……….having a “taste” before my guests arrive.  It is 89º today and I am wilting fast!  [The flowers seem to love it].

 

 

BETHESDA FOUNTAIN in Central Park

The Bethesda Angel looks her best in the summer……….  her pool  is filled with water lillies.

In 1868, Emma Stibbens was given the commission to design the largest fountain in NYC..  She was the first woman in New York City to receive such a commission.
