The view from  my terrace……….foggy but showy……..our first snow.

My 25 Ideas for CHRISTMAS GIFTS

It was a fun day of shopping………….5th Avenue……….a flea market………a silver emporium………and a crafts show.  [I am exhauested].  But I did make 5 purchases…………gifts for family…….friends………and my stockbroker!

The TAXIDERMY DEER HEAD………..was NOT among my purchases.

However…………..this Courtly Check Moose Head at MacKenzie Childs did tempt me…………..at $15,000 [cough]………….but it was the $695 delivery charge that killed the purchase.

CHRISTMAS at MacKenzie Childs

Thousands of beautiful things to buy…………..at my favorite store in NYC.

BUT………..this little paper house is the only thing I bought!…………what was I thinking!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I did debate with myself……………to buy or not to buy………..WHITE SANTA……..but I already have four.

BERGDORF GOODMAN Christmas Windows • 2017

This year Bergdorf’s teamed up with NYC MUSEUMS…………..and themed the windows accordingly.  Can you guess which museum each window highlights!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This year I was very disappointed with the windows…….they just weren’t up to snuff with years past.
