More Of My Very Busy Week

As I mentioned in yesterday’s blog, last week was very busy with activities in New York City.  Each year, since 1966, the American Society of Magazine Editors, or ASME,  presents awards honoring print and digital publications that regularly demonstrate exceptional production of editorial objectives, innovative techniques, noteworthy journalistic enterprise, and imaginative art direction.  I am proud to say that Martha Stewart Living won last year in the category of General Excellence and we were nominated again this year.  A group of us from MSL enjoyed the evening.

The night before, I attended the very popular Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club 42nd Annual Decorator Show House.  Each year, celebrated interior designers transform a luxury Manhattan home into an elegant exhibition of fine furnishings, art, and technology.  Beginning in 1973, the Show House raises critical funds for after school enrichment programs for New York City children.  This year’s Show House is being held in a palatial Madison Avenue brownstone mansion, the Villard, which is now part of the Palace Hotel complex.  Tickets are available through May 29th.
