NYC and back again!

Hellooooooooo out there!!!!! there....there....there...

The echoes of her neglected blog were almost deafening.

So heres the dealio.......I want to blog and share ideas ....but I am SOOOOOOOOOOOO busy!!!! The little Petal is on swimteam,Crooked Halo is in 2(thats right, count them T-W-O )shows!,I gotta travlin' hubs ,AND a new house to settle in to!
I am like the subject of an Oprah show about women spread too thin!
NYC was a pretty fabby pace to spend a 13th birthday....thats right,It has happened I live with a teen-ager!
We saw Hair(natch) ,and what I consider to be the best new musical in ages...Next to Normal!
Both shows exceeding my expectations!

It was a whirlwind trip...but we did manage to squeeze in a trip to Kinokuniya,my fave Japanese book store!

I bought The Wee Petal a few boxes of Re-Ments.

We stopped off in the cafe.......
....for a green tea frappe.
The store is beautiful ,especially with this mural by menga artist Takehiko Inoue,as you come up the escalator!

I grabbed a Japanese Dolly mag for my sis and scanned a few pages for your viewing pleasure! I want both of these dolly outfits for myself!
Maybe even this Blythe look! Someday ,I believe I will go crazy on Blythe ,but not today!
I have always had a thing for pose dolls and have thrifted myself a few!
It never occured to me to re-dress them....hmmmm.....

Now on June 11th didn't I just say I would be back to fill you in later in the week?
Long week huh?
So this weekend Ruby plays Cinderella in Cinderella(just like mommy did 15 yrs ago),and a couple of weekends after that she plays Eponine in Les Miz!!!!
Hows your busy summer.....????????

....oh ......and happy 4th,if I come back soon and ask(read beg) for decorating inspiration help ,will you be there? This new Pagoda is a much larger canvas to paint on!

Welcome back to blogging! I am looking forward to seeing the new pagoda. Happy 13th to Crooked Halo! How awesome to celebrate in NYC! Also, any blog that features my old pals the Sunshine Family all decked out for the 4th is a friend of mine!
