Montclair, NJ

Hey there, friends… It’s been months since my last real post.  I just learned that I could check my blog stats and it energized me when I saw that I had so many hits almost 9,000 and from all around the globe.  So very cool.  So I am going to get back into this and have some fun.


We took a trip to NYC and  visited my brother in Montclair, NJ.  What an amazing trip for us, my husbands first time to the Big Apple.


Our visit started here on this lovely street in Montclair, NJ. My brother has lived in this very old apartment building for over 15 years.


These are the steps, 3 flights of them up to his one bedroom flat.  No elevators in this building and the laundry is in the basement.  Can’t imagine that arrangement for 15 days let alone 15 years.  But that is a bachelor for you!


Very old woodwork detail and Crown Molding.


Now that my brother is getting married and moving out…. hmmm wonder if he’d let me have this little clock?


His style is very eclectic with treasures from his travels around the world.


A small vignette with a picture of the fiancé' that he took.  So beautiful!



Again the stairs, look at that patina.


Old mosaic marble tiles.


Another apartment building on the street.



Anyone know what this tree is? Wigelia is what comes to mind but not sure?DSC08859

Thanks for coming along with me on this little tour.
