Last week I met the most adorable Meatball I have ever seen.
Yes thats right, a golden and totally sweet meatball who quite honestly stole my heart!

Now before you think I've gone totally bananas, the picture below will give you a better explanation:

Introducing Meatball, a 5 months old little bundle of joy!

I came across this adorable pup as I was walking down 5th avenue.  He had stopped for a moment, to take in the sights and to tell his owner he wasn't keen on walking any further.

What he was happy to do however was pose for a photo!

"Make me smile Mondays is inspired by the book "Happiness is a Warm Puppy" by Charles Shultz.  In an effort to keep away Mondayitis, each week I take a leaf out of the book , and apply it to my everyday life.  This acts as a little bit  of inspiration!  See more about it here.

Happiness is a Warm Puppy by Charles Shulz

Happiness surely is a warm puppy and the wonderful thing about New York is there is a cute dog on every corner!

So what better way to start off then smiles and cuteness from an adorable pup!

Have a fantastic week!

Sundays are great for summertime fun in the sun!  And what better way to spend your afternoon than heading down to one of the many flea markets that New York has to offer!

When my pal Sarah was in town we headed up to the Brooklyn Flea Market.

As we ventured through the streets of Brooklyn, I couldn't help but notice such beautiful old houses that had been restored.  Finding these houses along the way certainly made our trip getting there more like a period architectural treasure hunt!

As soon as we approached the market and looked beyond the rail steel fence we got a glimpse of the wonderful treasures that awaited us inside!

Looking around there was an array of vintage as far as the eye could see.  Wonderful stalls filled with all sorts of wonderful finds.  Everything from old postcards to furniture, clothing and photographs, ribbons and trims, old toys, and vintage beauty cases just to name a few.  Along with ice cream and some cute hipster guys floating around as an additional eye candy!

So if you are looking for vintage americana and have a spare sunday afternoon in New York, I highly recommend this spot!
