A day in the City...

A day in the City (New York City) is always fun around the holidays.  Here are some photos from yesterday in Manhattan.  It's a mix from Bryant Park, Fifth Ave., Rockefeller Center and some pretty windows.  (My favorite windows every year are at the Anthropologie in Rockefeller Center.)


There were many kindnesses and pleasantries all day but a most unexpected one at the end of the day--on a packed peak hour commuter train--there were no seats to be had. After walking around for the better part of nine hours, we were exhausted and not looking forward to standing for 3 hours.  We never take cabs and only sit down to grab a bite of food.

A very nice guy stood up and offered us his seat..and then two others followed suit. It was quite amazing. We later learned they are firefighters from CT. There are still gentleman in a time and age where this seldom happens. Kudos to men who are gentlemen in this day and age! It was lovely gesture and we were so thankful!

It was tough to go the gym this morning...feeling a tad tired. The weekend is here but I feel like I had my weekend already!

Enjoy your weekend,

and as always...

...enjoy the day!

I am sure I feel as if I were in a different world if I were to visit New York City :) I did pass through once as a child on our way to Long Island to visit my Aunt and Uncle. Can't remember much,but seeing such of very big buildings and lots and lots of people. Wishing you many Christmas blessings friend.

Oh happy day in New York, my favorite city in the world.
It was at a flea market in Hells Kitchen I got the inspiration for The Vintage fairy Tales.
Much love to you Helen
