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.

BETHESDA FOUNTAIN in Central Park

The Bethesda Angel looks her best in the summer……….  her pool  is filled with water lillies.

In 1868, Emma Stibbens was given the commission to design the largest fountain in NYC..  She was the first woman in New York City to receive such a commission.

50 people were at my Christmas Party

 

MANY OF THEM YOU WILL RECOGNIZE.  Churchill, Dr. Who, Santa, LUCY, Frosty, Ernie, Justin Timberlake, Fu Man Chou, Renoir, King Tut, Shakespeare, PEE WEE HERMAN, a Guardian Angel….and 4 of the 7 Dwarfs.

The three Wisemen were here too………oh, Queen Elizabeth is in attendance……….and they all fit into my living room.

CHRISTMAS EVE with Jorge and his sister Nicole

They were on their way to the ski resorts………..NO SNOW…………so they dropped in for bubbly instead of the slopes..  George is a decorator who worked on the Bergdorf Christmas windows…………and his sister is a model in Miami……..and both are just the sweetest!

My ad hoc menu…………leftovers………….caramel corn and cookies………but it was the company that counts.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas……….

In my apartment.  The only thing missing are the stockings……….but also missing is a fireplace.
