I actually took these pictures on a sunlit Thursday last and I so enjoyed the excursion to the West Village -- Greenwich Village on the west side of Manhattan -- one of my favorite parts of the city. I only took a few pictures -- still too cold to snap many pictures without gloves -- but they bring sunshine to me and I hope to you, too.
This is the view on Bleecker street looking east.
Yes, it's a Buttercup selfie. There are a lot of individual (as opposed to chain stores) in the neighborhood, which makes for lively window-shopping. This cafe could have been on any Parisian street. I didn't stop here on Thursday, but I am planning to make a visit at another time.
Only a long planned appointment for a facial got me outside and downtown on this cold day. Was it worth it? Absolutely yes! I have decided that this is my all-time favorite indulgence and I'm going to be on the lookout for discount coupons for this treat. Do you have a favorite indulgence?
Please stop by and visit my friends at Sunlit Sunday. This is my second week joining this fun group and I've met great bloggers.
I'm zipping off for...it's Sunday night it must be time for "Downton Abbey." Thanks so much for visiting and have a great week!
