I just got back home last night from a wonderful trip to Cape Cod where I met some friends. I flew into NYC a week ago last friday and my friend Marie picked me up there. I spent the night in her charming apt. in a pretty Irish neighborhood in the Bronx. We left saturday morning and drove up I95 to start out adventure. :) We stopped in Conneticut to visit another friend from Make Mine Pink. We stopped in the shop that Jennifer and her Mom from Cottage Flair own. It was a pretty victorian house full of the most beautiful merchandise. Jennifer had alot of her furniture pieces she "makesover" and they were prettier in person. I am sorry to say I left my camera in the car down the street. It was really raining hard. But I did do some shopping and bought an adorable pair of sandles from OKA b and some very pretty ribbons. (http://www.cottageflair.com/). Then we stopped in Mystic CT for lunch and some window shopping. It was a very charming town and the bakery we found had orange brownies! Unbelievably AWESOME.
When we arrived at the cape we were greeted by our friends and hostess, Joyce from Make Mine Pink. I loved the house and the views from the window were so tranquill and pretty. I had to take a photo of the bathroom sink. It was so pretty. They had lasagna and salad waiting for us! We talked until very late and had fun. During the week we did alot of antiquing enjoying the sights. We discoverd a cupcake shop called Cupcake Charlies and we spent alot of time visiting there! One day, Marie, Katie and I drove to Bostons Little Italy neighborhood to visit Mikes Pastries. We also bought fresh deli meat and cheese there, so it was an awesome dinner that night too. :) We ate lunch in a pretty tea room and visited one of my favorite shops, Horse Feathers. She has so much vintage ribbons and linens. Buttons also. We also decided to make dolls! LOL We thought this would be a quick project. Quick it was not,,,but alot of fun for sure. In the photo, mine in the one dressed in pink and ribbons. But I bet you could have figured that out. :) I hope you enjoy the photos of my trip. It was so much fun and very pretty. The only part I didnt care too much for was it was cold for me. I was sure it was going to snow, but the Eastern girls assured me that it wouldnt snow at 50 degrees. lol I am home now and its 96 now. And just for today, I am enjoying 96 degrees. And in case you havent guessed by all of the bakery visits this week, I will be starting my diet this week! Have a pretty week.
