Super cute souvenir from New York, practically flat, because it had to fit in the hand luggage suitcase.
I found the crocheted fish at Anthropologie
A friend and former cool crochet workhsop participant, spotted my fish post on Instagram.
She was inspired to crochet these fish scrubbers after seeing the pair of fish and she happened to find a crochet pattern. @1dogwoof wrote up a pattern for the fish scrubbers a few years back. You can find the free pattern on her blog.
And check the fishes my friend @haveeweanywool made HERE.
Don't you think they are cute?
By the way, I use them as pot holders...

A bunch of bright and beautiful Dahlias on the kitchen table.
Dahlias are so elegant, lush and stylish, they simply have a certain 'allure'.
For a change I chose to put the tubes of the Vase d'Avril in a circle. An awesome sight, especially from above.
The dahlias are from the Villa Augustus garden, they have been blooming abundantly since the beginning of summer, it has been a great dahlia season so far.
I really can't choose which dahlia is the prettiest...

On day FIVE we acted like New York citizens in the weekend. We visited the great organic Greenmarket on the Union Square and afterwards we had an American breakfast with pancakes and omelet at the iconic Coffee Shop around the corner.
In the afternoon we went to the Chelsea flea market and had a Mexican lunch at Tacombi in the Empire State Building. At the end of the afternoon we picked up our suitcases at the hotel and took the yellow cab to JFK airport. Those five days in New York were unforgettable and we have not seen everything, so we will definitely go back!
Falling in love with NYC is easy...
