I LOVE NYC!!!!!!


Happy Holidays my sweet and wonderful friends. Can you believe the count down is on??? WOW time flies during this season!  I have sooo much to share with you all!  Lots of fun pictures from my recent trip to NYC, some fun Christmas swap goodies & purchases, as well as a new custom bunny box! Pull up a comfy chair, grab a warm blankie, a cup of cocoa, and turn up the Holiday tunes!

This past weekend my hubby and I flew to NYC for a long weekend, and we decided to bring my step-son Jordan for his first visit to NYC. We had a fantastic time! NY in December is so magical and beautiful. Full of the holiday spirit! We lucked out BIG TIME! The strike finally ended and we were able to see Wicked on Friday night. FABULOUS show! A must see if you visit NY. Friday day we took Jordan to Rockefeller Center to see the Christmas tree. Here’s the gruesome twosome.


Of course we hit 5th avenue. My favorite store!!!!


I fell in love with the evening bag section. Especially this one evening bag! Im lusting over!!!



Everyone knows that the windows on 5th Ave are a MUST see! It’s a holiday spectacle! I had to stop and look at Bergdorfs. Jaw dropping beauty!


Unfortunately, there is a bit of a glare.


This dress is TDF GORGEOUS!!!! Im scared to know how much it cost! LOL!!!!

Side of the dress


This is the back of the dress.


The BEST part. The gorgeous chiffon skirted flare! Droooool!!!


This display is A LA Marie Antoinette!



Another "must-do" was shop at FAO Schwartz.


Santa made out of Leggos.


I feel in LOVE with the Steiff collection. I wanted to ADOPT them ALL!!!!


Hello sweet little wee one’s!


I want to kidnap you ALL!!!!


Loookie at the Madame Alexander dolls. Are they not GORGEOUS???


She’s my favorite of the bunch.


I bought this doll (with brunette hair) for Vivian for her 1st birthday in Feb.


Saturday we spent half that day at Central Park, and the boys went ice skating while I took pictures. Good thing, I didn’t skate. They only skated 15 mintues than their ankles and feet started hurting. Here are some cute fun pics.



Jordan helping his Dad up after he fell. Hee! Hee!


Gorgeous Central Park.






Sat night we went into the Village and met my girlfriend Dawn and her husband for dinner at the oh sooo yummy Sushi Samba.


Hang in there! Im switching gears now to FUN FUN FUN holiday crafts!

I was participated in the pink ornament swap and I was soo fortunate to receive some wonderful ornaments. This fun and froo-froo ornament was made by Gigi Minor.


Loooove this sweet cookie ornament!


I have to share some SUPER CUTE purchases that are just darling. Check out this yummy sugarlicious wreath made by Cerri of Little Pink Studio. She has another one available in her shop that is blue tinsel.


Im a huge fan of Senta’s Etsy shop called Chloe Bean  I squealed when I first laid eyes on this Christmas stitchery. How cute is this?


I also recently purchased this beautiful Santa bottle from Tiffany Jane aka Beyond the Vintage path. I was going to give it as a gift, but one I saw it I HAD to keep it. Hee! Hee! The inside of the bottle is full of white magic dust. 


I have recently discovered her work, and it’s soo nostalgic and magical! Check out her blog as well. Her music makes you want to float away into neverland.

LOOK at what she sent me in my package! Lots of small tokens of sweetness. Even name tags for Grant and Vivi! She is sooo sweet to have gone out of her way! Thank you Tiffany!!!


These PRECIOUS posey banner pockets I purchased from Diane Mars  Etsy shop Saturday Finds These are adorable vintage images and just SUPER cute!



She had so many adorable ones to choose from. She still has MORE for sell, so skip on over and check them out! πŸ™‚ 

Im sooo thrilled to show you all my newest bunny creation. Ginny aka Twinkle Pink emailed me two weeks ago asking me if I would custom make a bunny box for a baby girl name Elodie. This is going to be a special keepsake for her room.







Well, my sweet friends Im FINALLY almost thru with this post. WHEW! What a long one!!!! I just wanted to share one last fun pic with you. I received my Prom Queen gift from Natasha today. Look how sweet she packaged it.


Being Im dressed down and my hair is in a pony tail today I decided to have Miss Vivi model the tiara comb for us all. πŸ™‚ Img_6590_edited1

Jenn, I have been looking at your blog for some time and everything is so beautiful. I was in NYC from the 5th to the 11th and we got to see snow. I have many of the same shots you took. Don’t you just love the windows. My son works on 5th and 57th, so I love going there, especially at Christmas time. 2 years ago, one of Bergdorf’s windows was nothing but a chocolate display—everything was made with chocolate—totally awesome. Will have to try and find my pictures of it. Your blog is a wonderful place to visit. Merry Christmas, Pat

I followed Karla’s link to you, and VOILA! I’m in a bit of heaven! My jaw has dropped to the floor! My mother has the same porcelain angels you have. =) And yet another white tree in blogland! Next year I NEED A WHITE TREE!!! Your Sugar Plum room couldn’t be any sweeter. And I LOVE your NYC photos! I went to NYC two weeks ago with one of my children’s classes (we went to Radio City for the show). I posted about the trip, but alas, my photos aren’t blingy because everything was done through young boys’ eyes (I had a group of boys who wanted to go to Virgin Records and Carnegie Deli)! lol I will definitely be back to visit your pretty blog! =)
