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.

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.

We……. [volunteers]……….wrapped toys and SANTA passed them out to all the kids. It was wonderful to see the expression of “delight” on the kids faces.

All profits at the HWT go to victims of AIDS…………meds and rent!  $15 million was raised this year.

 

MACY’S Christmas Windows 2014

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.

P1360884The main floor inside MACY’S..………was also boring………using the same decor year after year.  Whatever happened to Red and GREEN?

I think this may be the best look for BOB.  YES??? / NO???

JURASSIC PARK at Toys “R” US

TOYS “R” US is a trip!  What kid wouldn’t get excited seeing thousands of toys……and wishing that SANTA would drop them all off at their house……or apartment!                                                                                                                                               [As if they would all fit down the chimney]!

I was shopping for the”TWINS”……very sweet three year olds…..and the choices were vast.  Don and I settled on about 20 things [charge cards in hand].  Was fun but chaotic!
