A quick catch up......

Hello friends!!
Just thought I would check in to say a big HELLO
Have you missed me?? I've missed YOU!
I had a few e-mails asking where I've been,
I took a couple of weeks off to enjoy a fabulous family trip
to the BIG APPLE
we had the best time!
I think I've  actually overcome my fear of heights!
this was my view from our hotel.........and yes it was high!
I was in charge of map reading and directions!
Lets just say we took quite a few detours......
I was thrilled to met up with my gorgeous friend Marjie Kemper
here we are at Grand Central station with our moustaches! 

Marjie took us to some really cool places...... we went to the flea markets at Hells kitchen
Oh My Word they had so much stuff I needed, wanted .......had to have! 
But sadly I had a weight restriction in my suitcase......I will bring a spare next time!
We then headed to FAO  Schwarz toy store!
this store was totally amazing!!
 I got to play the Big Piano from the movie BIG
that made my day!
Then me and Marjie had to give Liberty a little makeover!
(So rude not too!) 

We then headed over to The Ink Pad to give my credit card a workout! 
We shopped, shopped some more and shopped!
I was soooo happy to find a copy of Somerset Gallery Magazine
I found my CHA piece had been published so had to squeal lots! 
A huge thank you to Marjie for meeting up with us, 
we had so much fun, talked tons, laughed really hard and got into lots of mischief!
After saying a sad farewell to Marjie 

we headed out to find The Tinsel Trading Company
but when we got there it was closed........
But that didn't stop us we decided to make a quick stop before we headed to the airport and I'm sooooo glad we did........
The shop is a treasure trove of vintage findings, trimmings, lace........ 
It really is a fabulous store!
Here's some photos from inside the store

One really cool place......I think I need to re-visit it soon!
So that's where I've been......
it really has been a blast!

Thanks for popping by
its good to be back in my shed creating 
hope to share what I've been making soon 

Have a lovely weekend
