HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY from Bergdorfs

BERGDORF’S WINDOWS…………scream out “Happy Valentines Day“.  And the isicles are so appropriate.  New York City is covered with ice today.  Rained all night……..then more snow………and today it is freezing.  So cuddle up…….stay warm [yes, some of you will get HOT]. Why not……….it is the day for LOVE.

The windows were charming.  Brownstones, limestones row houses and their water towers……all painted WHITE.  I love miniatures so the windows were especially interesting tome.  The JEWELS were secondary………..[valued around ONE MILLION].  I wonder if they remove them from the windows at night.
