New York City Holiday Store Windows

I hope that everyone enjoyed both the Solstice weekend and the holidays so far.

As usual, my Christmas night includes looking at the store windows with my family.

This year, We started at Barney’s on 60th Street and Madison Ave, but there were Disney characters in original  story/films in each of the windows.  It was not appealing to us so we moved along without pictures of the films.

The next stop was the Stuben Glass crystal star suspended in the intersection of  5th Avenue and 57th Street, the wonderful windows of Bergdorf Goodman and the small miniature holiday scenes in the windows of  Tiffany’s.

We drove down 5th Avenue and did not park the car to closely examine the tree nor the windows at Saks Fifth Avenue.  It was suddenly a very cold night and the windows were not as inviting as they have been in past years.

Finally we arrived at our favorite traditional windows at Lord and Taylor. These windows always charm us with their faithfully reproduced New York City and other holiday sights. Last year I showed you their wonderful New York City holiday kitchens and homes.

This year we are rewarded with a scene of the entrance to the Central Park Zoo, The Japanese Garden at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, a swanky penthouse apartment to name a few.

I hope that you enjoy this little slide show . Happy New Year Everyone!

Congratulations to Kim Meijer

I just finished writing this week’s post and poof.. all the text was gone. Try as hard as I could, I could neither retrieve what I had written, nor could I add text to my Season’s Greetings card.

So I was forced to start from scratch.

I am delighted to announce that Group Member Kim Meijer was approved for Certification by the RPA Certification Board. Heartfelt congratulations are sent to you Kim.

I want to thank each and every reader of the Newletter for your time, support and attention. I am very grateful to you for your interest in the Newletter.

In the next few weeks I will be presenting the Newsletter’s annual New York Gets Dressed For The Holidays edition which will include extensive ( I hope) photos of the holiday windows and dressed up houses taken with my new iphone.

Also, I went on my dream vacation to Italy in the beginning of October. The experience was so rich for me and felt so private that this is the first time I am even mentioning it publicly. I do hope to finally write about my experiences and impressions very soon.

Finally,( for this week) , for those of you who have wondered whatever happened to my garden, I have finally brought all of the plants inside that I couldn’t bear to leave outside .

Here is (hopefully again- this is where I lost the text last time around) where I send you a slideshow featuring the flowering plants in theri indoor winter home.

I hope that you enjoy this.
