Last evening I had the honor of attending an event hosted by Marcy & Irwin Feld of Irwin Feld Design and Mid Century Antiques for the New England Home Connecticut Fall Networking Event.  October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month - and pink is the color!  Marcy and Irwin had a bench made in a luscious shade of pink.  All the proceeds of the sale are going to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure fund.

Love this shade of pink!

It was fun to look around at the stunning furniture and accessories that were on display.  And the place was packed!  Lots of people from the design industry.  I met up with bloggers Jessica Ryan, Liz Orgera and Tamara Stephenson (as well as Marcy!), who all had been at The Nate Berkus Show.  I was also delighted to meet Kyle Hoepner (Editor-in Chief of NE Home Magazine), Stacy Kunstel (stylist extraordinaire and Homes Editor of NE Home Magazine) and Nancy Moon (PR whiz from Moon & Company) who I follow on twitter but met for the first time in real life.  I also got to meet Gloria Collins, Cynthia Mason and Carolyn James McDonough.  What a fabulous evening - and for such a great cause!

Next Thursday there is another event, Pink Night, sponsored by the Young Emerging Professionals at the Hotel Sierra in Shelton, CT from 5:30 - 7:30 PM.  The evening is in support of the Campaign for Breast Wellness at Griffin Hospital.  There will be food, an auction, music, networking and more - tickets are $30 per person.  {RSVP by Tuesday: 203-925-4981}

Cancer has touched the lives of so many people that we love.  I'm glad to support these terrific causes to try to put an end to cancer!

And for a final touch of pink, pinkberry is opening their first Connecticut store in Fairfield!  I'm looking forward to sampling this frozen yogurt treat - yum! From what I hear I might have to do a lot of sampling; it sounds delicious!



  1. The event at Irwin Feld last night was such fun and made even more so by meeting fellow bloggers like you and Cynthia. Who knew that CT had so many design-minded writers? Wishing you a fun-filled fall weekend!

    P.S. Can't wait to visit pinkberry as well!

  2. keep me posted on any events you will be attending in Manhattan! Love meeting fellow bloggers in person!
