alamode seatbelt pillows at New York restaurant, The Collective - OM [one moment] meet up #18

pillows can be seen around 1:02 on video

Last Saturday night, while in NYC, my friend and I decided to check out a restaurant, The Collective, in the meatpacking district. My seatbelt pillows were purchased by the architect and developer for the restaurant [blogged earlier here]. I had no idea what to expect but was surprised when we stepped out of the cab.

The restaurant sits on the corner of a cobblestone street. Surrounded by an outdoor patio, the walls were open to expose the eclectic interior.  This hip restaurant was hopping and getting busier by the minute. As we walked in,it wasn't difficult to see my pillows throughout.  What an exciting moment for me. 
Sorry the photos are dark and grainy.  They were taken with my iPhone and the lighting was, well, dark.  You can see better interior shots in my previous post here. BTW, the food was great.  I'd recommend trying the waffles and chicken.  Yum!

What was your 'one moment' this week? What took you out of your present moment and made you excited, happy, proud?

  1. That must have been such a great moment Linny...

  2. I'll bet that was so exciting! And mmm chicken and waffles - something I've only seen on the Food Network! ;-)

  3. How completely rad to see your ideas in action!! They fit perfectly!!

  4. This is fantastic! Grainy or not, I love that proud picture of you and your creation.

  5. Congratulations on the Pillow placement! They look more than amazing :) I'm sorry I turned my comment last week into a bitch fest but thanks for letting me blow off steam in a safe place.
    This week I realized how much we truly love our furry babies. After leaving the vet for the 5th time in 11 weeks with a bill for $414.00, Livia threw up all over the backseat of my car. That's when you become truly aware that we are as dependent on their love as they are on us for food and shelter. I felt so bad for her and my bank account is toast and the car is trashed. I brought her home, cuddled her in, and made sure she was safe. Only then did I attack the disaster my backseat had become and start to figure out how to pay the bill and save up for whatever health issue arises. She's worth every cent :) I hope you've all been lucky enough to love a pet this much.

  6. Congratulations! The restaurant looks great and your pillows fit perfectly in.

  7. What a thrill! I'm with Cyn, I love the photo of you with the pillow. Embrace the grain, it adds to your story. Awesome!

  8. found you via Candied Fabrics! i love this idea of OM!

  9. That's so very cool! Congrats Linda! I'd be over the moon with excitement!

    I'm not sure I had a specific "One Moment" last week but sitting in a boat on Mara Lake with my feet up was pure bliss! : )

  10. How cool is that! and good food too!
