The Santas have arrived
on the bookshelf
and on 8th Avenue outside
the florist with the cat and the red berries.
In the 60's I spy an antiques shop with treasures within
and the window of Bloomingdales.
ps What splendid silver boots!
Uptown there are tasteful decorations with giant pinecones
and a house swathed and swagged
even the buildings are complex and stunning
and the diner jam-packed.
I'd love to sit in that diner a while!ReplyDelete
A festive holiday mix. Very tasty! That picture of the cat in the florist's window is stunning.ReplyDelete
I miss colonial homes decorated for Christmas.
love the reflection of henry's smiling face on the window in the bottom photo.ReplyDelete
I am tempted to try to recreate your row of books from my own bookshelves. ;-)
Very good photos before Christmas!ReplyDelete
And the new design of the blog is really cool :)
Oh how I'd love to visit NY sometime during the holidays, but since I can't I'll let you share your view of the city. Wonderful photos!ReplyDelete
thanks for sharing this Christmas atmosphere!ReplyDelete
White long coat and silver boot, mmm what a combination! :)ReplyDelete
I've never walked around NYC to look at the houses all decorated for Christmas - gotta try that next time I'm in townReplyDelete
my earlier comment referred to the BOOKS -
I would not bet, but it is quite possible that I could find almost all of your books in the picture on my own bookshelves (I have this tick of always having to spy on other people's shelves, even in pictures). ;-)
Elizabeth, I love each and every one of these photos and the words you've added to them.ReplyDelete
Like Merisi, I had to have a long look at that book shelf, just peeking past the Santas, to see which books I have read. As you know, I mostly now let the library store the books that I want to read.
Isn't New York fun at this time of the year! xo
I want those treasures!ReplyDelete
And wow, oh wow, to the swagged house.
Like your bookshelf santas!!ReplyDelete
