Yesterday was a somber day in Buttercupland, but today we're going to have some Pink Saturday fun. One of the spring and summer fun activities in New York is going to street fairs. There are things to buy, all kinds of fun and caloric foods -- I gain weight just looking -- and entertainment. A few weeks ago I went to my first street fair of this season. I stepped out to do a few errands, walked just a block from my house and found myself in street fair country. I did allow myself one of the treats, but my focus was on all things fun and pink.
There were lots of scarves for sale, but the pink ones caught my eye.
There were trays of costume jewelry....
...more jewelry, and something that was new to me, toe thongs.
The one food treat I did indulge in was for one of my all-time favorite desserts, the cannoli. with its sweet and delicious ricotta filling. I find these pastries so hard to resist, and this time I didn't resist.
These were outstanding, and definitely worth a trip to Brooklyn. Fortunato Brothers, thank you for fabulous cannoli.
It's a beautiful not-quite summer day today. I'm looking forward to spending the afternoon at a barbecue with friends in Westchester. There's lots of catching up to do, and I know it will be a great afternoon. I hope you've got a fun day planned, too.
As always, thanks for visiting. Take good care and have a pretty-in-pink Saturday.
