The National Stationery Show

May 20, 2013

20130520-053853.jpg We said good-bye to the country and hello to the city yesterday. It is one of the things I love most about New York. Within a little over an hour, you can change scenery so drastically, going from a wooded lakeside retreat to the hustle & bustle of The Javitz Center. I spent the day being surrounded by beautiful paper goods in many forms.

From there I am off to the Kips Bay Decorator Showhouse. It is the start of the Blogfest on Design event I will be attending for the next 2 days. Oh such fun! It is the same event I attended last year, and I look forward to seeing so many familiar faces and friends I have made since then. It will be full days with lots of interesting folks to meet and cool events to attend.

Thanks for coming with me. Details and photos tomorrow…
