Tomoe Sushi is one of our favorite Japanese restaurants we used to frequent when we lived in Manhattan.
I said, “For old time’s sake (not the drink), let’s go in and have one roll each!” So, we did.

When I was younger I became aware of Lilly Pulitzer shifts (dresses) when looking at fashion magazines. I loved her bright floral prints. If you don’t know who Lilly was, read about her here.
After my son was born in Manhattan, my mom and I would take my son in his stroller and walk to Bloomingdale’s from Chelsea. My mom would watch over my son as I tried on Lilly Pulitzer dresses. I bought a couple – one I got on sale for $30!
I was hooked and bought more dresses from the store C. Orrico in Florida. They would ship me dresses in my size, I would try them on, keeping the ones I wanted to buy and return the rest! Those were the days!
I also bought vintage Lilly Pulitzer dresses on ebay. I have sold most of my Lilly dresses, but I loved wearing them when I worked in Manhattan. The Lilly dresses were perfect to wear on those hot, muggy, humid East Coast days.
I have started cutting the pieces for a quilt. I have a lot of fabric that I want to make a couple of quilts out of.
(Not sure what that means psychologically and DON’T TELL ME.)
Now, I said I was cutting the pieces but I do not know when I will start sewing the pieces together because during the week my full time job is looking for a full time job.
It’s fun to choose exactly how I want the print centered on the fabric. Yes Mom, these are the Nick and Nora pajamas you bought me years ago! I hope you don’t mind that they now have a different purpose.
I really am not into fabric prints of little kids picking apples and the little girl has angel wings kinda stuff.
I have a stock pile of Vera Neumann linen calendars, napkins and place mats and I am going to make a quilt out of all of them!
Yup. I’m gonna chop these suckers up and it will be so satisfying!
I am drinking my tea, trying to wake up. Then I will go outside and continue to plant my veggie garden. That is what I was doing yesterday and why I didn’t post.
I shot this photo at the Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan. Isn’t it hilarious? I got such a kick out of it. That Meret Oppenheim had a great sense of humor!
There is a similar “situation” to this art piece in the movie The Five Year Engagement with Jason Segel and Emily Blunt.
