FUNK and FLASH at the Museum of Contemporary Crafts

These shoes were made in Vietnam……during the war.  


I LOVE THEM ALL!

Tho…..the rubber duckies just might be my favorite.

But, then again……..there is the horsey………..and the rabbit!

Tom and Charly…..budding artistes

This afternoon my friend Julie from Paris and I were picnicking in Central park at Columbus Circle.

We met two charming art students who were sketching and painting and we admired their work.

A stroll in CENTRAL PARK today

After lunch at the boat house we strolled over to theBethesda Fountain……and met this sweet couple from Australia………..Jayde and John.  She has been to NYC four times……..this is John’s first visit.

The weather was fantastic.  The geese…….the tulips…..the sketch artists………the “bubble boy”………the brides…….the turtles……….and thousands of tourist……….all enjoying Central Park.
