New York Public Library

 Frances invited me to join her at the New York Public Library Open House on Sunday afternoon and it was such fun.

The splendid building was all decked out for a winter holiday reception with carolers, a klezmer band

a jazz band

wine and punch

and balloon animals too

Best of all were the children dressed in their party best

entranced by the moving statue - all white and immobile one moment -and alive the next.

and the juggler was magical.

The winners of the Jane in Winter giveaway are Ridgely and Debra. Please send me an email with your mailing address and the name you would like it inscribed to. (elizabethwix@hotmail.com)
I'll mail them out tomorrow.


  1. It all looks amazing, the tree is spectacular and such a stunning building.

  2. That looks like so much fun. Wonderful holiday adventure.

  3. Looks such a fun occasion Elizabeth. I especially love those children enjoying it all and looking so pretty in their party dresses.

  4. Wasn't it a grand afternoon, Elizabeth. This was no time for silence in the library...too many folks of all ages celebrating the season.

    Your photographs are terrific...really do capture what we saw. xo

  5. What a beautiful afternoon.
    The children are the best.

    cheers, parsnip
