|The High Line|
I have walked the High Line a few times before but this was definitely the coldest (& shortest) walk. It ends - or starts - right at the new Whitney Museum and I highly recommend a visit to both.
I have a thing about Yellow Cabs and I love seeing them out at all hours of the day and night.
But I take the subway.
|The Ink Pad|
You know I've got to make a stop at the Ink Pad every visit. I met my pal CeCe there on a bitterly cold morning.
I nearly froze to death taking this picture.
|Among other things, the Ink Pad is a great place to pick up some NYC rubber stamps to decorate your postcards and travel journal.|
|Next up - Casey's Rubber Stamps. Also in the West Village. Just step down and into a very fun world of stamps.....|
|Out front is always a table with some stamps you play with.....I stamped some mail I had with me and a little travel notebook.....|
|Casey's has got a great selection o stamps too and don't forget to look thru the catalog they have there because they will make up any stamp you want from it right on the stop.|
|JAM Paper & Envelope|
This was a new place for me that CeCe took me to and fun to browse the shelves. My find?
Some really great very large airmail envelopes
that you can get by clicking right here
(I wouldn't share this info with just anybody but you guys are special....)
|I worked on my travel journal diligently every day.....(more about that soon).|
|Harriet gave me a big bag of fabulous Russian candy -- she knew I had been wanting them so I could use the cool paper wrappings in collages...eating them is kinda fun too.|
|OUT my hotel window. I loved looking out there. But when it was snowing I didn't like it....See that little red door right across the street?????|
And I found a sweet little Valentine on the desk one morning....
Why yes, I did go to Junior's. Twice, in fact. And I'm not sorry. You just cannot get this in San Francisco.
And the cheesecake....
