Mona Lisa, Mona Lisa...


"M" is for Mural and for Mona Lisa. Lee's Art Shop -- one of my all-time favorite stores -- is just half a block off Broadway. I often walk past here when I take the subway to Midtown and then walk over to the bus for my final part of my commute home. Though the sign calls the store "The Art Shop of the Stars," it has many other wonderful treasures. They have a fabulous assortment of Christmas ornaments, home decor and even some jewelry. I bought a bright pink case for my kindle there, and often there is something in the window that draws me in to look further. I always enjoy looking up at Mona. I feel I can be familiar with her. We've been smiling at each other for years.

The featured blogger for today is Sylvia Ney. Sylvia is the newest Citizen of Buttercupland and is also a participant in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. I know I will enjoy getting to know her and reading her blog. 

Wishes for a Magical Monday!

That sounds like a nice place to visit. Next time I am in NY, I will try to stop by.

Say hi to Mona for me. I have always wanted to meet her. Have a great magical Monday. I'm being lazy today but I guess I'd better get up since it is almost 9 and get busy. ... Or is it more magical to keep being lazy and enjoy reading in bed on my iPad?...???... Hugs, Lura

I am singing your title in my head! "Mona Lisa, Mona Lisa, men have loved her..." Then it ends there because I don't know how the rest of the song goes! Haha.

That looks like a nice store to visit! I myself love looking into cute stores and I'm happy even if I don't end up buying anything. ^^

I googled the song in my head and I had the wrong lyrics after all! It's "men have named you" and not "men have loved her." Yeesh. :P

Mona Lisa looks so friendly, I can see how you would enjoy seeing her. Thank you for featuring my blog and my mom book "Scrapbook of Motherhood Firsts: Stories to Celebrate and Wisdom to Bless Moms". You are a sweetheart! The price varies and today it is only $11 on Amazon.

This is the first Mona Lisa I have seen as a mural. What a beautiful idea and clever advertising!
