This was a special afternoon that I planned for B. We were going to American Girl so she could pick out a very special “bitty baby”.
We enjoyed a lovely lunch in the sweetest restaurant that was all black, white and pink.
I happen to be married to a burger aficionado, and he thought that the 5 Napkin Burger was the shiz.
5NB also has locations in Miami & Boston.
The boys had planned to go see the soccer game so that left the whole afternoon for my Mom, B & I to do a few things that the guys weren’t interested in like…
See what Marimekko has in store here
We also went into the mecca of all ribbon, notions, chains, I could go on and on.
I had the best gelato EVER at this little place
I love this store, I could very easily have spent an entire day on the main floor alone.
One of the things I like about it is, the interior is really old & rustic & it’s like they just dropped in place tons of beautiful things, a perfect setting if you ask me.
So, my Mom had a magazine clipping of some bathroom accessories she was wanting to purchase, but the few items were going to come in around $1500, so that was a no go!
I just have one question –
How can someone possibly purchase a $1200 for a waste paper basket and think that’s OK?
This is not a joke I saw the price tag with my own two eyes & if you would like the soap dish it too could be yours for $280.
On the upside, I did discover a beautiful collection of tableware
Bella Porcelain by Jan Burtz
Each and every piece is hand made. There are ready made pieces or you can go the custom colour route
You can see more of Jan’s here
Well that’s all she wrote. I’ll be back tomorrow with #thebigapple Part 2
