I spent a long weekend on the East Coast visiting quaint Connecticut towns and stocking up in my much missed Manhattan. Aja, my dear friend who put me up, lives in that glorious carriage house. The whole property is very Jane Eyre, complete with pond, wild life, and amazing architecture. It’s a gorgeous place to live and I can almost see why she’d rather live out in the boonies than a metropolitan area…almost. We visited tea shops, waterfronts, antique stores, and did lots of girl things like paint our nails and make earrings.
We also spent a day in Manhattan, restocking my craft supplies (but really, as if I needed any more). We went to MJ Trims, Tinsel Trading, and Purl Soho. It was a great trip. Thanks for being such a lovely hostess, Aja!
