for people to dress up in all sorts of jolly costumes...
like this Santa-ette selling yoghurt drinks on Penn Station.....
and a young man selling cosmetics in Macy's....
where I met this rather alarming, if cheerful, elf.
Part of Macy's Christmas grotto. Gloriously, astoundingly overwhelmingly red.
This elf in Union Square was selling home made chutneys.
Such simplicity at the Union Square cafe where they get things so exactly right
like the pumpkin cheescake. Yum.
After exactly the right amount to eat
I discover, amidst the paper-whites and cyclamen, an austerely perfect Lenten Rose.
My friend Susanna Gordon's father-in-law IS Santa

The lenten rose (new to me!) is glorious! What a delicate array of shading and color there and such a perfect photo. And I love all the other entertaining attractions you've shown us today too, especially the red!ReplyDelete
so new york!ReplyDelete
I love it when holidays give us an excuse to wear something fun without getting the stare-down. Such festive goings on and such decked-out halls! Wow! Nothing like the big city to know how to make the most of December. PLUS fresh flowers! Wish there was some way to get a taste of that pumpkin cheese cake.ReplyDelete
I can see you!ReplyDelete
Lovely shots, and I do like the look of the cafe.
Macy's grotto is certainly red!ReplyDelete
Nice to see a picture of the Union Square cafe, I have a recipe for their spiced nuts which I make every Christmas, now I have a context of sorts.
Don't you love it when New Yorkers get in the spirit and are, dare I say, jolly?ReplyDelete
I have not tried pumkin cheeseecake but it does look ok:)ReplyDelete
Love New York at Christmas time, beautiful!ReplyDelete
What a fabulously beautiful Lenten Rose....ReplyDelete
Do you have a Christmas hat too? I picked up another one Sunday, sitting here on my desk, guess I better put it on.ReplyDelete
So good to be jolly in the run up to Christmas.ReplyDelete
Thank you for the cheerful shots!
Had a trip to to Canada then came back to visit more with you.ReplyDelete
