Treasures from the Attic

A Victrola. That's what my grandparents called a record player. Love the RCA dog. Under the dog it says, "His Master's Voice."

An old Zenith clock radio.

My dad was an avid photographer, but I'm not sure why he's shooting a stripper ...

... while my mom is changing my diaper! I wish these had a date on them. All I know is that they were drawn at a restaurant called Henry Stampler's Filet Mignon on Central Park West in Manhattan.

Here I am running around Cypress Gardens with my camera in 1981.

My old varsity jacket from high school. Go Lynbrook Owls!

My mom's wedding gown was preserved & sealed in a box.

Old retro box

One of my favorite books. It's a little crazy that Dennis has 2 guns on the cover, even if they are toys!

A carpet sweeper ... those things were useless!

YIKES! A creepy book that luckily I don't remember.

Neon green shag carpet remnant ... straight out of an Austin Powers movie.

 Another book ...

 Here's the dumpster, half full of non-treasures.

Dow Jones Ticker Tape Machine

I found this Dow Jones 300 ticker tape machine in the garage. CraigsList or Ebay???

I love this detail.

The BIG Clean-up NY - Day 5

Luckily there was a hazardous waste disposal set up at Bay Park for the day. Perfect timing!

We got to have a little break when Amy & Stella's brother Bailey came to visit.

The club looks awesome after the Hurricane Sandy rebuild.

Shelter Island Wedding Weekend

I'm not sure why I got these great colors shooting this droplet detail in the shower Friday morning.

When we got to Greenport, we boarded the ferry to Shelter Island.

Wicker chair detail

Veal Milanese for dinner Friday night. YUM!

There were homemade donuts for breakfast dessert on Saturday morning.

After breakfast I went hiking at Mashomack Preserve with a bunch of my relatives.

Alex & Sandra relax by the pool at The Pridwin Beach Hotel & Cottages.

Wendy, Michael & Bonnie pose with the newlyweds Marcy & Amy.

Me with my mom & Hank.

There was a studio set up where you could grab a prop & pose for a silly picture.

Yummy menu

When someone put their wine glass down on a table, I grabbed a quick shot. They thought I was crazy until they saw my pic.

Amy & Marcy finally get to have cake.

Love cupcakes
