Instagram: Weekend in NYC and More

Between work, parties and events and a weekend away, the past few weeks have been crazy. But I am sure that’s the case with you, too!

I was lucky enough to be invited up to NYC for a quick weekend and I stayed at a friend’s family’s apartment on the Upper East Side. It was a low key weekend with shopping, a quiet Saturday night and Sunday morning, more shopping and then a pretty easy drive home.

This is the cozy nook that was my room for the weekend. It’s between a church and a school, and you can just see a bit of the stained glass through the window.image

One of our first stops was Creel & Gow, a little treasure chest of all things weird and wonderful. It brought back fun memories of the late shop, The House of Beauty & Culture in London.image

The barware selection at Hadley Antiques. LOVED everything!image

There is a grove of Japanese maples near my house. Every autumn, it puts on a stunning show.image

The kick off to the Festive Season is always the lighting of the Washington Monument in Baltimoreimage

Some pretty from the party after the lighting.image
