I love New York!!!

Yup as predicted my birthday weekend in New york was brilliant.  I got so many cool things to share with you,  like this yarn bombed bike spotted in Greenwich village

And my new custom made muppet

mine is the orange fuzzy guy in the trenchcoat on the far left,  and I think he turned out looking a bit like Zach Galifianakis so I instantly named him Zach.  He was so fun to make at the muppet workshop in FAO Schwartz and I had a blast carrying him around New york for the rest of the day………forget having a cute dog to start a conversation with strangers just walk around town  with a muppet,  everyone wants to be your friend.

In fancy schmancy news we wanted to check out  Gordon Ramsey’s  Maze restaurant at the London Hotel and it was a lovely brunch treat

I had the Pan roasted wing of skate preserved lemons, ratatouille, caper and almond butter and Markie had the eggs Benedict and as absolutely delicious as everything tasted,  you wouldn’t want to go in starving if you know what I’m sayin’.   Which is the opposite of Asalt and Battery in the village

………hmmmmm lots of fish and chips and no I didn’t have the deep fried mars bar before you ask……far too sweet for my taste although it is where I first tasted one a number of years ago.

So New York was every bit as brilliant as I remembered it was and I had a fabulous birthday with lots of treats (can you say sale at the Lulu Guinness store………..yaaaaaaaaaaay).


So now it’s back to work as this Sunday I am back at the Sowa Market.  And I have some new goodies I’m working on and need to get finished.
