The Times They Are A-Changin'

Today's walk through Chelsea Market was truly remarkable... Not only was it bustling with people of all ages (which is a sign that the times they are a-changin') but there were 3 new stores that I will be sure to keep in business...

1) Dickson's Farmstand Meats-fresh meat/poultry/game from a nearby Farm that is organic and fresh
2) Gramercy Flowers-which has an amazing mix of real/faux/dried out flowers
3) Posman Books (also in Grand Central Station) the quality of Barnes & Noble without the commercial feel.

Books, meat, and flowers-what more could I ask for?

Today's project was reinventing my dining room table arrangement.  The fillers? Dried out branches (can be purchased at most flower shops) with (also dried-out) lotus flowers and pomegranates. Plus a few silk hand-painted butterflies from Apartment 48. Now that beats buying expensive flowers every week-once again some luxury for less.

Here are a few images from the new meat shop... (that's my new buddy the butcher)

And the fresh pumpkins-both decorated and plain outside my favorite produce store.

Chelsea Market makes me so happy and  hope it does the same for you.
