The Big Apple – Day 1

by Kate on July 26, 2010

20 hours sitting at the back of the plane is never an enjoyable experience, even after watching 5 films. Although, now we are here it seems like a distant memory.

The weather is sensational, hot and balmy and a welcome change from the Melbourne Winter. 

Both Lynn and Victoria recommended checking out ABC Carpet and Home and Fishs Eddy. I am so glad they did, the moment I walked through the doors I died and went to homewares heaven. 

Jason is counting his blessings the airlines have baggage restrictions as I could have done some serious damage with Mr Mastercard. I was having a conniption over these ceramic rubber gloves.

Heading to MoMA tomorrow.

Looks positively horrid – glad you are having such fun! Surely the joys of wallaby vicotry will soften J to shopping exploits!
You know Kirst is going to look at those hands and having a 'we can make those' lightbulbs – don't you

Insanely green over MoMA tomorrow. Also can't see what possible argument Jason would have over ceramic glove purchase. They're for doing the dishes, right?

You are making me wish I was back in New York. Have a great time.

It looks fabulous – how wonderful to be there. I hope you have the most amazing time.

Mr HB is in NYC on business at the moment too ( … although he did drop the word Guggenheim into conversation on Saturday, he has wisely ommitted talking about the beautiful weather!)
