Tiptoeing through the tulips

It's finally Spring and the parks in NYC are filled with gorgeous tulips!
Everything is in full bloom and feels alive.
I can't believe we can actually Tip Toe through the Tulips in NYC.
Country Boy saw me admiring all the gorgeous flowers in the park,
so he surprised me with some Tulips of my very own!

Happy Spring!

All the Buildings in New York

All the Buildings in New York, James Gulliver Hancock
As a book lover, I'm always picking up new books that are creative and inspiring.  I recently saw the book "All the buildings in New York" and loved the illustrations.  
So, I brought it home.

I wanted to find out more about the book, so I did some research. Turns out, there is an entire blog about it!

James Gulliver Hancock is an illustrator and started a blog to draw all the buildings in New York.  His drawings are amazing and he has been commissioned by all the major publications.  So, the book deal was next on the list, and it does not disappoint.

I love seeing all the buildings through his drawings.

Fortunately, during my research on the book I found that James was having a book signing at Rizzoli books on 57th St. 
 I was so excited to meet the author/illustrator and get him to sign the book!
He even drew us our own little mini building in the book beside his autograph!  
So sweet!

As if it couldn't get any better, James also drew my favorite little ice cream spot!
Now, let's hope he draws my neighborhood.

Country Boy and I ventured up Madison Ave to take in the sights of the Rich and Famous.
Along the way, we saw the new Barneys Roy Lichtenstein windows and went inside to take a peak.
