Heading to NYC

I am heading up to NYC for the book launch party for Julia Reed’s book about the amazing Furlow Gatewood.

The incomparable Bunny Williams and John Rosselli are hosting the party at Rosselli Antiques. I’ve been to a few other parties there and although it’s usually a mad crush of people, it’s always fun. I am looking forward to meeting up with friends, Reggie and Boy, whom I haven’t seen since last fall.

I am also meeting up with friends for lunch, and then plan to spend some time at the D&D Building,image checking out what’s new there, before I head down to High Point for the Spring Furniture Market at the end of the week.

Between now and then, I have a big project to finish at work, and then a “black tie with medals” dinner on Friday night. Considering that it snowed here on Sunday, and the weather looks downright spring-like in North Carolina, I’ve also got to rustle up some warm-weather clothes to freshen up and pack before leaving at the crack of dawn on Saturday. Whew!

It’s going to be a long day, so probably no post Tuesday night/Wednesday,. but look for a NYC wrap-up on Thursday


  1. Good Luck and enjoy yourself.

  2. Sounds like a fun time will be had. Enjoy your trip and I am looking forward to hearing about it when you return to your blog.

  3. Hi Meg,
    Have a wonderful trip. Say "hey" to my second favorite city (Paris being No. 1) for me.

  4. So much fun to see you at the book bash tonight, m'dear!

  5. Envy on so many levels - NYC, people that can both tie a black tie AND know how to read, antiques, design and lunch. Marching about in hailstorms and wellies here feels like another planet. Have a wonderful time!

  6. John had invited me to go to the book signing but I couldn't get in to the city as I had other plans out here in CT. Looks like a lovely evening was had by all!
