Pink Elephant

zouzous basement via Etsy
It's Valentine's Week and a Pink Elephant print is a perfect way to celebrate.  I originally saw this print via younghouselove.  They bought a print from zou zou's basement.  They chose a mixed media print of a bunny but posted a gorgeous pic of this pink mixed media elephant.  I fell in LOVE! 

As you see from yesterday's post, we have a thing for elephants.  So, I immediately pinned this image.
After looking at it on my Pinterest board, I visited zouzou's basement on Etsty and purchased this baby for our apartment.  
Once it arrived, it was bent. :(  I was so disappointed.  So, I emailed the seller and she happily sent us another one that was not mounted.  It was perfect!  
Thank you Zou Zou! 
I love the Pink Zebra too!  
So, if you are looking for a Valentine's Day treat check out Zou Zou's Basement

Happy Pink Week!

Love is in the Air

It's Valentine's Week and Love is in the Air in NYC.  Country Boy and I celebrate February since, that is when he proposed.  So, Valentine's Day ends up being more of a commercial thing, but we like to celebrate the anniversary of the day he popped the question.

Hope you have a great Monday!

Happy Valentine's Week!

It was a great day for a PARADE! 5Oº degrees, the Sun was shining, and the skies were BLUE! BIG BLUE to be more specific as the NEW YORK FOOTBALL GIANTS won the SuperBowl...AGAIN!
I'm a die-hard REDSKINS fan but when you live in the greatest City on Earth sometimes you just have to take advantage of the opportunities set before you.  I went to the parade to see what it was like and to give you guys a front row seat!  
 I saw all those crazy rowdy fans and thought...I want to be on the OTHER SIDE! 
Eli Manning w/ Mr. Lombardi..
more pics here...
 See the guy scaling the wall? Yeah he busted his arse...
There's Eli Manning(waving) the 2-time Super Bowl MVP and Champion.  Wow could you imagine how proud Archie Manning, his Father must be to have 2 sons who have 3 SuperBowl rings?  Anyway that's NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg flanked to Eli's left(our right) waving and that's the Lombardi Trophy being held in the air by head coach Tom Coughlin.

but it's still,

until next time,

 Pandemonium filled the streets, toilet paper flew from the brownstones, police officers were jumping arm and arm with fans and tourists alike! It was amazing, fun, and crazy! The NEW YORK FOOTBALL GIANTS beat the New England Patriots to win Super Bowl XLVI. Here's some photographs I got of the CITY!! 

Euphoria filled the streets and congrats to the NY FOOTBALL Giants, but it's HAIL TO THE REDSKINS for this family.

until next time,

Japanese Sweet Peas

We have the fortunate experience of living next to FlowerSchool New York where they have a multitude of events throughout each week.  These beauties are imported from Japan and have been incorporated into Matthew Robbins Design recently.   I'm a Country Boy so I like to talk to everybody and I have developed a friendly relationship with the owners of FSNY over the years.  Sometimes they will periodically give us free flowers!   How cool is that?  You truly get more with sugar than vinegar.

I learned this 45º degree angle trick at the W Hotel on Lexington avenue when I used to bartend there.  I like being different and there's no need to be like everyone else.  If everyone else is doing it then that's a heck of a good reason not too. 
 A special thank you goes out to FlowerSchool New York for always making our little apartment more enjoyable.  Flowers really do make a BIG difference in the room...any room. They have a magnetic quality about them.  I guess it's the whole "something from nothing" idea.  That tiny seed grows into a majestic beauty....sorta like us!

until next time,

~Country Boy
