Take a Walk on the West Side ... {giveaway winner announced}






... and discover Mimosa Gallery and much more. The West Side has had a major revitalization the last few years, trust me, I used to live on Grand Avenue. I have been amazed at what has transpired. My husband and our young family lived in a townhouse at the start of the new millennium until 4 years ago. We were pioneers moving over to the West Side. Having lived in NYC - we were ready for the challenge and were committed to living close to downtown. A townhouse on the West Side was what we could afford. I'm proud of to say we were there when it all began. We left when our family began to grow and needed a yard and more space {but we are still walking distance to downtown}. We often wish we had stayed! We go to dinner at The Local often with the girls and share stories about our first special home where they were just babies. Stopping on Beeckman and walking up and down the street that is now littered with artist galleries, neighborhood pubs, great restaurants and very cool shops makes me very proud! It's our own SoHo {should we call it WeBro?}. A walk on Beeckman Street and you get the feeling that you have stumbled on something very special. Enjoy it this weekend for First Saturday {galleries are open until 9. The neighborhood galleries and restaurants have music and specials all evening} or on Shopping Night, Thursday July 30th. Mimosa Gallery is a participating store and is a shop you won't want to miss. Everything item {art, jewelry, pottery, vases} is unique and many are designed by local artist and designers. Michelle and Michael LaLonde {owners} themselves are artist in their own right. They are designers of handbags which are, like so much on the West Side, one-of-a-kind works of art and should not be missed!
Today's Giveaway winner is....
