This week for Show & Tell Friday, we were encouraged to post something that we found while on vacation. My favorite destination is NYC! I love the lights, the glamour, the excitement... If I were young and single, my dream would be to live in a little, shabby-chic decorated apartment, and work as a Broadway Show set designer in NYC. ...where I could go out for bagels, pizza, and cheesecake any hour, day or night. I could delve into second-hand shops, within walking distance of my home, and frequent the shows and museums!
Back to the subject at hand....Vacations & Memorabilia...
On my first vacation to NYC, with romantic notions of Holly Golightly dancing in my head, my sister-in-law, Leighann, and I, began with a trip to Tiffany & Company. We stayed for hours and took pictures of everything, including the bathroom and beautiful wood paneled elevator, complete with a door man...who echoed with a sing-song deep voice, "Going up...going down!" You can imagine how fascinated we two small-town girls were!
Leighann and I both purchased keepsakes from Tiffany's, but we were almost as excited about the "Tiffany Blue" bags and boxes that housed our new found prized possessions, as the items themselves. We saved them as mementos, as well!
So, this is what came in my blue box...a pair of crystal candlesticks.
(These lampshades are NOT purple, only appear that way in the picture. They are dark brown.)
