Martha Attends Professional Bull Riders Opener (And Rocks a Killer Outfit)

Image

Martha attended the Professional Bull Riders season opener at Madison Square Garden in NYC last weekend, in a stunning and (of course) event-appropriate outfit. Martha, long a farm owner/operator in Bedford, NY, told People Magazine, “I love this sport. I can’t believe they can stay on there for eight seconds.” FOMs: If there’s any 70-something woman who could successfully take on bull riding, our money’s on the ageless SuperMartha!

From People Magazine (as is the above photo):

Amid a sea of cowboy hats at the Professional Bull Riders season opener in New York City this weekend was a surprising celebrity fan.

“I love this sport,” Martha Stewart told the crowd at Madison Square Garden on Sunday. “I can’t believe they can stay on there for eight seconds.”

Stewart wasn’t the only famous supporter in attendance, either.

Martha is Interviewed at 92nd Street YMCA

Image

In this video, a relaxed Martha is interviewed by Bravo TV’s Andy Cohen. (Yes, Martha dutifully answers the “Shag, Marry, Kill” question!)  I’m alway amazed at how even-keeled and relaxed Martha is during interviews, given all the is going on at MSLO these days. After so many years in business, she seems well-equipped and able to weather ANYTHING that comes her way. Go get ’em, Martha!

Fun stuff, right? Read Martha’s thoughts on the interview, and see photos, on The Martha Stewart Blog.

Martha Hosts American Made Workshop at Grand Central Station

Martha Stewart at American Made event in Grand Central Station

Martha was in Grand Central Station yesterday to celebrate American crafting and creative entrepreneurship. Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia created the American Made Award to honor people who’ve started businesses based on their passion for creating. This year’s 11 honorees are featured in October’s Martha Stewart Living magazine, and you can learn more about them here. On Wednesday and Thursday of this week, MSLO hosted an American Made workshop in Vanderbilt Hall in Grand Central Station in NYC. You can see lots of photos from the event and its set-up here. Of course, Martha was on hand to celebrate the honorees, invite others to learn and participate, and to provide some tips of her own.

From marthastewart.com:

Thursday morning, Martha Stewart gave a presentation of “Five Things Everyone Needs to Know,” her favorite tips and tricks for everything from pumpkin carving to house painting. Here are her five key tips:

1. Use an ice ball maker for perfectly spherical ice for liquor. It’s a neat trick that will keep drinks cool.

2. Cut open the bottom of a pumpkin when carving to preserve the look of the pumpkin and coat the cut parts with petroleum jelly to keep them from rotting. See this tip. 

3. Put a whole head of garlic between two metal bowls and shake to remove all the paper for perfectly clean garlic cloves. Wash your hands on the stainless steel metal bowl to get rid of the smell. See this tip.

4. To remove thorns from a rose easily, grab a thick washcloth and run it firmly down the sides to rip off the leaves and thorns.

5. When painting in your house, attach a rubber band across the mouth of a paint bucket to wipe the brush on. The drips will fall back into the can. See this tip.

GrandMartha Takes Grandkids Out For a Stroll in NYC

Image

There is absolutely no doubt that Martha loves being a grandmother to Alexis’ two adorable children, Jude and Truman. Whenever she is out with the youngsters, she is beaming ear to ear, as in the photograph above. Yesterday, along with a nanny, she took the grandkids out for a stroll in NYC. Hopefully, Alexis was enjoying some R&R during!

(NOTE: There were other photos published along with this one, but I will no longer post photos of Alexis’ children, after hearing Martha does not like paparazzi snapping photos of her grandkids. Fair enough, right?)
