Pink Brooklyn Brownstone?

After working so tirelessly planning their party, Sean decided Chantelle
should come to New York City for the weekend for R&R

he made a quick phonecall to his assistant and had some spiffing up
done on his residence.
well, not exactly a brownstone, but it was Sean's apartment in the city

and he thought it would be so much fun to (temporarily) 
paint it pink for Chantelle's arrival.

well, you can tell this was a really nice space,
done in a soft contemporary style,
that had definitely NOT been pink ever.

He just wanted Chantelle to have a restful and fun visit,
they would go to a few places like

Washington Square Park

ride the subway to Brooklyn, walk the neighborhood streets,
check out all the little food shoppes along the way, and
then hop a cab back to The Plaza Hotel where they
would have afternoon tea

at The Palm Court of The Plaza Hotel

lay ceiling in the Palm Court only recently rediscovered, having
been covered for the last 50 years

formal tea service at Palm Court,
piano playing softly as it always has,
since the hotel opened almost over 100 years ago.
price nowadays $45 person

afterward, they walked across the street into Central Park,
so Sean could show her his favorite spot of all within the park...
the ramble...

view to The Dakota from the ramble

they strolled along Literary Walk and thought they might like
to sit down on the grass and watch children, dogs & parents at play...

including The Brady Bunch, oh my gosh
they were both so very happy

Sean had a lovely little gift for her

pink, of course...

the happiness was so relaxing, she just had
to put her head down for awhile...

 they walked out of the park in the
last light of the day hand-in-hand...

  2. I just had to come and visit another Marsha!! That makes four or five, I've lost count, of Marsha's I've seen in blogland, and spelled the RIGHT way too, LOL

    Happy Pink Saturday!


    Sassy Marsha

  3. Thanks for the little trip to NYC. I love seeing familiar spots.

    On the previous post, we are downsizing, and hope to have a little flat worth...hmmm...a fraction of all that. It is SO relative. Of course, these are the same people who are deciding I should pay more in taxes. Oh how I wish they would just donate all their stuff to the gov and keep me out of the loop.

    Happy Pink Saturday!

  4. Hi Marsha,
    I am so glad that you stopped by Artfully Graced this morning. It is so nice meeting you! And yes, I agree...you sound like someone I would thoroughly enjoy getting to know.Your jewelry is gorgeous!(I am now a follower, too.)

    I thoroughly enjoyed the tour of NYC. It's been so long since I was there.That pink brownstone certainly stands out! Not being a "pink" person, I might have to think about painting mine turquoise.

    I have a son living in Orlando...It's an interesting place. When I lived there, 34 years ago, it was a small town, that grew much too fast, thanks to that big mouse. I don't think it's ever found its niche.But the location is pretty nice. You and your daughter will enjoy St A...but also check out the beauty in the chain of lakes...New Smyra Beach, and Cocoa. Each of these places are about an hour away...and there is much beauty to be found.

  5. Happy Pink Saturday!

  6. Lovely Marsha! I might have to go do a few of those things today :) Thanks for your words about wholearth & my friend. You're the sweetest!

    Have a wonderful weekend! xoxo

  7. Wow..I have to say I wish I was Chantelle today and got to hang out on those places!! Oh, that would have been wonderful!! Thanks for taking me on this tour!! Happy Saturday!

    xoxo's Kristin

  8. I know everyone's been to these places, but it would be nice for a lovely weekend wouldn't it?
    And, I really do love Central Park so much. No city in the US has a park like this. Plus, where else could you see Tom, Gisele & baby Benjamin?

  9. What a darling guy and how romantic.
    I once saw Joan Rivers in the Palm Court
    at the Plaza. I wonder if Trader Vics is still in the hotel. Your photp's of NYC are fabulous.
    It's a great post..Have a good weekend.


  10. Now wouldn't that be a wonderful place to live?

  11. What a great post! And such a great pink "brownstone!"

    Happy Pink Saturday!

    In Shoes We Trust,
    "Do these shoes match this purse?"

  12. Can't wait to hear what happens next... Happy PS,

  13. Marsha,
    This note is making up for lost time during my absence, so I'm covering several posts -wonderful posts, I might add.

    The pink/New York tour was fabulous. And, I agree that Central Park tops my list of places you can never see too often.
    The pink pearl necklace is to die for ...absolutely fabulous.

    I love that you added the image of the slug from the tour of the redwoods. We were just there last week, and I took a picture of a slug - giant trees and slugs.

    Thanks for the heads up on the Sotheby's auction at the Kluge home. I've been looking for a few rare Chinese paintings for my collection. What a fun post.

    Thanks for visiting and taking time to leave the sweet note on my last post. I'd be honored to have you share anything I post. The drinks I shared for my happiness toast??? I think they are mint juleps, but I'm pretending they are amaretto sours.

  14. What a fantastically delightful post!! I really enjoyed but what made my heart sing was the ceiling in the Palm room!! So Victorian and what a shame it had been covered up!!

  15. Oh my goodness! I love that story! I want to read more....!!!!!
