MACY’S wants you to BELIEVE!  It says so all over the store!  BELIEVE in what?   Your charge card of course!

I took a few photos of the windows.  Usually there are thousands of people pushing up against the windows…..this year….almost no one. The displays were so boring!!!

The Salvation Armybell Ringer” was more fun to look at as she danced the “boogie boogie” and shook her bell.

CAFE EDISON…….evicted by the landlord!

We signed petitions…………along with thousands of New Yorkers………..trying to cafe the sacred CAFE EDISON in the theatre district.  To no avail.

I feel like boycotting the HOTEL EDISON for being such a greedy landlord.

 

NYC in Miniature………at Hut Studios

 

Harold and Richard at HUT STUDIOS on Broom Street in SOHO are selling a fantastic collection of handmade architectural ARTWORK.  Desh Accessories, boxes, pencil holders………many one of a kind pieces.  All unique.  All very fairly prices.

Just add your wish to SANTA’S LIST

There are lots of quirky New York icons for your tree……Pan Am building.Empire State building….the Flatiron is there too.  Oh, the Dakota apartments is my fave!  I have the pencil box right here on my desk!

CHRISTMAS GIFTS…………caught up in the madness

MY art studio is in such disarray!  Looks like Santa dumped his entire sleigh into my studio and now I have to wrap it……pack it…….and call FedEx.

Actually…………I am having fun and only 85 boxes left to ship.  FedEx loves ME!
