An utterly gray day when they had removed the top of the Empire State Building, so nothing to see from the roof when the artist Elizabeth Bunsen came for the day --and her first visit to NYC for many, many years. Fellow artist/bloggers Seth Apter and Susanna Gordon were there too.
Nothing for it but to head to ABC Carpet that glory-hole of the gorgeous and overpriced and visually wonderful. Karen Cole just visible behind the children's clothes....
and Lord Ganesh with his lovely real flowers
and funny little fabric purses to put presents in
and beads galore.
In the restaurant the flower arrangement was absurdly perfect
and the bread suitably sculptural

and I drew in the book Elizabeth had created for her trip.
After lunch the weather had improved a bit and we reveled in the irises in Union Square.
