dinner with friends

This past Monday after a workshop at the new Apple Store on Broadway at 68th Street I met Jeane of ARTIT and her BFF Lisa in from the Seattle area for a few days of museum visits, shopping and blog meet ups.

I love Jeane's art, a while back I sent her two small already painted on canvases and all my old oil paint. I don't paint any more and I knew she wanted to try painting in oil; she has done some fabulous stuff this is one piece she did back then AND she brought me a new painting.  I must take a photo of when its hung .. she used one of the old canvases I sent her.

We had drinks and dinner at a Nick & Toni's Cafe on West 67th St; after much laughter, good adult libations and some yummy food we walked uptown on Columbus Avenue passing Magnolia Bakery, if you don't know Magnolia, click here, they specialize in cupcakes.

What a coincidence ..

Jeane's favorite food? Cupcakes!


She got a red velvet and enjoyed every bite.

Then we did some window shopping at Intermix... good thing they werent open!



She's coming back to town this summer and I cannot wait.

  1. You guys just have the bestest fun ever!

    Have never had red velvet - and won't ever get the chance either. Don't believe it comes in gluten-free form.

  3. What? You didn't go to BubbaRose? I'm kidding...

    How cool! I guess one of the perks of living in Manhattan is that people go there, so you get to meet a lot of out of town bloggers the rest of us only read about. (Just to clarify, "a lot" is relative. And when you're comparing it to the "zero" that would be likely to turn up here for example, even two or three is "a lot".)

  6. Yup, it definitely looks like you had fun. Now, I'm dying to go to Nick & Toni's when I come to the city. However, don't let me anywhere near Intermix. I'd probably find something that looks great, then I'd buy it, and then Mr. Snoots would murder me...

  19. Your visit sounds like lots of fun. I'm looking forward to seeing your new painting.

    I took a look at the first painting you have of hers and I had to comment on your desk. I love that you have some many things you love surrounding you. I noticed in the labels at the bottom that you wrote "who can work like this" and I laughed because I always junk up my work area until I only have a 8 1/2 by 11 sized space to work inside of. So I guess the answer to your question is "I can.
