HAMMOND’S FLYCATCHER seen in Central Park

THIS DARLING LITTLE BIRD……..lost his way and ended up in the Ramble.  It was the third sighting EVER in NY.  He was on his way to MEXICO……and most likely got caught up in high altitude winds and ended up here..  We were afraid it might not survive the snow………..but it was spotted again.

He is named after Wm. Alexander Hamilton…….a former surgeon general of the US Army.

NYC a Winter Wonderland • Our First December Snow

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

A wet show..,…………….perfect for making a wet “snow person”.

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.
