Those ladies in Brooklyn sure know how to throw a fun anniversary party! As I posted previously, I have some art pieces on the walls of a cool boutique in Brooklyn called The Banquet. I had forgotten how sticky and humid NYC is in June. I secretly love the insane heat out there. The two owners of The Banquet, Miranda and Pam showed up at the airport (my flight came in at 1:00 a.m.) in a cute Zip car. I give mad props to anyone who dares drive in the city. I jumped into the car and it was like we had all known each other forever. They even got lost a few times (must be true friends of mine). The shop itself is adorable and in a cute neighborhood in Brooklyn.
my art seemed right at home against the white brick walls and neon flower arrangements. Pam's creates the one of kind jewelry and Miranda custom makes dresses and things-made to order in any fabric swatch color of the customer's choosing!
on our way back to the lower East side we ran into this cool crotchet knit bike. We ended up going to a bar called St. Jerome's and saw Lady Gaga sitting at the bar. I guess her old boyfriend is the bartender. She looked cute, wearing a hair scarf and little shorts. All the ladies from the party ended up dancing til 3:00. Pam and I made ourselves popcorn and mac and cheese at 3:15. Nice way to end the evening
Back at Pam's place, I found lots of inspiring books and decorations. She has really cool style. She also told me that she used to live near the desert in California and found lots of cool things at local thriftshops. I always love embroidered things and cool pastel portraits
