Carolyn WEstbrook: More from the big apple

So, as promised...more pics from our latest whirlwind trip to NYC. Our hotel was in Times Square so we were sure not to miss anything. We perused all of the junky tourist shops on Times Square and I cannot help it....I love snow globes and they had the tiniest, cutest ones with the Statue of Liberty in adorable. We grabbed some authentic New York style pizza and headed back to the room to have a hot bath and put on our p.j's after walking all day because Victoria had to watch the Rangers...sorry they lost.
This amazing culinary store/bakery was at the Plaza...OOOH I absolutely love The Plaza. And guess what...

My favorite store of all time...the Eloise store, all in pink. I absolutely LOOOOOVE Eloise since I was a kid. I had all of the books and read them to my girls when they were little, and they have been skibbling around ever since. We even had to buy Skipperdee and Weenie, back when they were small...they may be vintage now??? Here is Victoria in the Eloise store and she looooved it too. She had to have an Eloise coffee mug and we were upset that there were no Eloise t-shirts for adults. If you have not heard of Eloise, then you simply must look for her books.
This is another shot from another section in ABC Carpet and Home. Again, one word...amazing!
This city is a breath of inspiration.
Will keep posting more pics as we go.

I wanted to say thanks to our friends at French Laundry for the lovely blog post and giveaway on their website. If you have not seen it then check it out for a chance to win a copy of my new book: The French Inspired Home. It is a beautiful website.

We should be in the November issue of Where Women Create, so look for it on stands..thanks to Jo Packham.

Also, just heard from my friend and Editor n Chief, Jacqueline at Romantic Homes magazine, and we were chosen as one of the "Romantics" for their big February issue of Romantic Homes. I am honored to be a part and how she does all that she does with a new baby...incredible.

Don't forget...we will be signing books this Sunday at the Urban Market in Houston, Texas. I hope that you all can come out it is a wonderful show packed with great talent! For more info
