Christmas in Bloggyland/AKA New York


 Bloggyland Christmas Tour today courtesy of the hardworking Muse Swings. 
A VerySeasonalHat seen on 22nd Street on Saturday morning....
 Cool seasonal earring too.

A complicated window display in the Meat Packing District. The child is turning off the alarm. 
The bandit deer is cracking the glass.
The snowmen have turned to the dark side.
The ladies in smart dresses inhabit another world entirely.  They are trying to ignore the infra dig antics of the others.

Setting out for a pub crawl through Chelsea on Saturday morning, these Santas were also collecting for a food bank.

Couldn't resist these two pictures of yesterday's dawn. Addiction to bare branch pictures proving hard to break.

  3. I don't see an addiction to bare branches as a bad thing necessarily. But if you still do, not to worry, it will heal itself come spring.

    Thanks for the Christmas in Bloggyland tour!

    Merry Christmas!

  4. Very cool shots! I love how you have all the Santas nicely posing and smiling for you. Love the lady's hat. Maybe I should look for one and wear when I walk my dogs. ;-)

    I think I used the 2nd one down. It was utterly easy - or else I would not have managed it.
    Hope to see lots of snow on your blogs too
    I think it is the fashion........

  21. I agree with other commenters here - you can't have too many bare-branched tree shots, especially with dawn or dusk skies behind them. These are so lovely.

  32. Ha, ha I like the the meat packing plant window, As a former window dresser myself I used to put some strange things in the display hoping my boss wouldn't notice. Addiction to bare branches is a sign f health at this time of the year, indulge fully!!!!!
