Friday Find

It was Lilly Pulitzer Night in New York last Thursday, at the annual black tie Museum Dance for The Museum of Natural History.  Check it out on New York Social Diary!

Both photos from New York Social

Also featured on NYSD's Shopping Diary this week was a sale at Doubles (Sherry-Netherland) featuring these gorgeous ponchos from Glamourpuss NYC.  The link to Glamourpuss NYC is at the left on the Shopping Diary page...

If you don't read NYSD, you should check it out...It's a fascinating find!

And speaking of Lilly and all things preppy....One of the precious girls in the photo at the top of the blog is my darling niece....and she has the cutest "preppified" room in her sorority house that she said I could share with my readers.

Isn't it wonderful?  Bright and fun!  I love that her screensaver has one of my favorite shots of Miss Betty at the Ocean Forest Hotel in Myrtle Beach in 1940..... Miss Betty adored her granddaughters!

And speaking of readers...thank YOU so much for visiting my blog.  This is only my fourth week and I am loving every minute of it.  As of my writing this post, the blog has had over 800 visits, and I have heard from many of you.  College students, young single women, moms with babies, moms of teens and college students (my peeps!) and women who grew up in the fabulous 40's, 50's, 60's and 70's who have all kinds of stories and experiences to share.  You all are are your blogs!!  I am reading and loving them!!

Have a great weekend...

    Your sweet niece's room is TOO CUTE! I did the same thing when I was in college! :) All dorm rooms need to be preppified, they are just so boring and cold looking without a little pink and green!
