Live, from New York...500 and counting...

Had a perfectly wonderful day in New York last week. I was invited (as a former guest) to be in the studio audience to help Martha Stewart celebrate her 500th show.  I had soooo much fun seeing Martha & my buddies, and taking in the gorgeous set (from the other side of the camera, that is...)!  And what a gorgeous set it is.  Really stunning...This six foot tall ice sculpture was quite amazing!  The sculptors were smoothing and adjusting it right up to show time and the studio lights transformed it into a rainbow of color. 


Conan was hilarious throwing around glitter, the Desanto sisters were a riot cooking Easter Pie and President Bill Clinton made a surprise appearance at the end to discuss his humanitarian efforts.  Quite a group!  

We were permitted to take a few pictures after the show ...
Martha looked radiant and sooooo happy to be celebrating her 500th show, not a small accomplishment!  After the show,  she answered some questions from the audience.
At the very end, Martha invited the whole TV gang up for a nice group picture. 

They always make me feel like royalty...I had all of the fun and NONE of the nerves this time!

Hi glittery friend,

What a glorious day! I am so glad you were part of the celebration, but then, what kind of celebration would it have been without the Glitter Fairy?

hugs, Lidy
