NYC living

So I am settling in to my new NYC apartment.
I am loving the area which is Carroll gardens in Brooklyn.
Currently the furniture situation is pretty scarce....romantic minimalism!
but I am looking forward to searching the local antique stores and flea markets.

Some of my first acquisitions are this little cobalt jug $1 at a local flea market
and this milk glass vase $3 
The Peonies are from the sunday farmers market


  1. i think id up heave my family and dog for the flowers alone....sighhh! Looking forward to seeing more from nyc.

  2. Nice to hear from you Helen. I know you are busy...but nice for the update. I am stateside too and buying peonies every week. I special indulgence that I could rarely find in Eire. (but will now be growing them).
    Best to you, Imen x
