any day now
this is al roker’s flower box.
hi everyone, i’m in and out tonight since it’s friday and almost 9. if i don’t get out in the city on this gorgeous night for something other than fixing, painting, moving, organizing or overseeing it’s my own dang fault. before i head out i just wanted to wish you a fantastic memorial day. i probably won’t be around for a couple days cause i’ll be with 3 of my favorite little lambs who i hope won’t let me have a moment’s peace!
every day i seem to say life’s getting wrapped up life here in ny. i didn’t realize how much stuff was stashed around! and how much this city really means to me. these old mirrored valances were in my friend lorraine’s basement. claudia t. and i got them years ago in brimfield. they’re from the 40′s and in great condition and there are six of them. if you’re nterested, let me know, i just don’t want to put them on ebay or leave them there for another decade when they should be up and sparkling and loved!
in the book i wrote book oh so long ago we used mirrored valances and i wanted to show them in action so busted it out tonite. it’s funny cause i rarely look through it and got nostalgic cause it was all shot in ny.
this was the chapter for james coviello‘s hat salon. this was the loot we got all in one day at the ny fleamarket. the mirrored valances were our big coup. we had a lot of fun that day and it was a candy store! the flea is one of ny’s great treasures i hope it keeps going for years to come. there was talk of closing it but for now it’s still alive and kicking. there’s a good market in brooklyn too:
actually you can’t really see the valance unless you look hard. but since i’m re-living my past i thought i’d share these pics.
james was the bulletin board king back in the day!
ok, well that’s enough memory lane for tonite. thanks for indulging me :)
bon nuit everyone and have a roaring weekend!
