Happy Memorial Day 2017


I would like to wish all the US followers out there a very Happy Memorial Day! I hope that you all enjoy the time with family and friends, and remember the true meaning of the holiday. 

Memorial Day is a US Federal Holiday observed the last Monday in May. It commemorates US Service Members who died while in Military Service. It begun as a ritual of remembrance and reconciliation after the Civil War, by the early 20th century, Memorial Day was an occasion for more general expressions of memory, as ordinary people visited the graves of their deceased relatives, whether they had served in the military or not.

Linda's at Bergdorf Goodman

The famous store, Bergdorf Goodman, always has the best windows. When I was in the city for the fashion exhibit at The Met, they had the most wonderful windows to celebrate the opening of Linda's at Bergdorf Goodman. Linda Fargo who is the public face behind the famous store, was opening a 600 square foot shop-within-a shop on the fourth floor. The shop offers a mix of vintage and current season ready-to-wear and accessories, artisan chocolate and $110 candles.  
From the Bergdorf Goodman Website:

The windows are so much fun, and reflect what a fun shopping experience this will be. I love going into Bergdorf just to look around and see the gorgeous selections.

Throwback Thursday " Police Officer 1896"


A very cool photograph of a police officer in New York City in 1896. He looks pretty tuff to me, I don't think I would want to mess with him! I really love the uniform although I wonder how easy it was to run after criminals wearing it.

I’m Nobody! Who are you? The Life and Poetry of Emily Dickinson

The Morgan Library has become one of my favorite places. I just love the small size of it, and the architecture of the building. It is becoming my second favorite museum to The Met in New York City!  
These are some photos from the other side of the museum, which are just so gorgeous! 

Can you imagine walking through those gates to the inside of your home? 


The gorgeous original exterior of the McKim building

From The Morgan Library Website: 

One of the most popular and enigmatic American writers of the nineteenth century, Emily Dickinson (1830–1886) wrote almost 1,800 poems. Nevertheless, her work was essentially unknown to contemporary readers since only a handful of poems were published during her lifetime and a vast trove of her manuscripts was not discovered until after her death in 1886.  

Often typecast as a recluse who rarely left her Amherst home, Dickinson was, in fact, socially active as a young woman and maintained a broad network of friends and correspondents even as she grew older and retreated into seclusion. Bringing together nearly one hundred rarely seen items, including manuscripts and letters, I’m Nobody! Who are you?—a title taken from her popular poem—is the most ambitious exhibition on Dickinson to date. It explores a side of her life that is seldom acknowledged: one filled with rich friendships and long-lasting relationships with mentors and editors.  

The exhibition closely examines twenty-four poems in various draft states, with corresponding audio stops.  In addition to her writings, the show also features an array of visual material, including hand-cut silhouettes, photographs and daguerreotypes, contemporary illustrations, and other items that speak to the rich intellectual and cultural environment in which Dickinson lived and worked. The exhibition is organized in conjunction with Amherst College.








 How very cool to see her handwriting! 











This exhibit is actually on view until May 28, 2017, and I would highly suggest a visit. It is a wonderful exhibit of one of the greatest poets of our time.
