I met up with a friend, Natalie, a couple days ago. She lives in New York now and follows our blog. She is the sweetest thing and has a calm about her that I would love to bottle (you would to.) But that's not the point of this: she advised me to go to ABC Home on Broadway and look at everything on all 6 floors. So I did.

Now, part of my experience may have been influenced by the fact that it was the only hour this entire week/trip that I was alone and that in itself was a bit glorious, but this place is gorgeous. A bit overwhelming at first, but if you treat each floor like its own paradise, then you're ok. And by ok, I mean, you want to buy most things.

I settled on these little vases for single flowers, a cute bag for Mimi and a water bottle - I will post pictures when I'm back.

Here's a glimpse of their market/oasis:
