Big Apple Eye Candy

Last week was the New York gift market so in an effort to find some new treasures for the shop and have a bit of fun in the city, we made it a family girls' getaway. With interesting sights around every corner, here are a few of my favorites.

First off, flowers by the bathrooms in Balthazar.

Fabulous window display at Rachel Ashwell's Shabby Chic.

Paper flowers at Kate's Paperie.

Interesting art installation on a building in Soho.

Beautiful flower shop, Adore.

Vintage millinery pieces at Tinsel Trading Co.

And, of course, no trip to a large city is complete without visiting the flower district. Tulips from Dutch Flower Line.

Sweet peas and ranunculus to die for from G. Page.

And did I mention it was a bit nippy? My mother and niece, Gresham, braving the cold with me in Central Park.

Nantucket—need I say more...

This post is a bit out of order as it took place before I did the shop makeover—although it is most likely the reason I was up for it. Earlier this month I was treated to a week in Nantucket along with the girls in my family and was reminded of how important and invigorating vacations can be. Lazy days away from the heat of Texas where we actually wore sweatshirts most mornings and afternoons spent collecting shells along the beach were nothing short of magical.

If you've been to Nantucket, you know the flowers that grow in the gardens rival what is seen at the best floral shops.

Yes, that's clematis!

And the meal I will dream of for months to come—lobster roll at the Summer House in Siasconset accompanied by a blueberry mojito made with locally distilled Triple 8 vodka.

Ahhh.
