Glorious snow!

Washington is covered in a winterish white and I'm loving every minute of it! I thought I would share some pictures of holiday decorations as 'tis the season!
These are in New York of course. My friend Evelyn was kind enough to send some images to me she had taken on a recent trip. At the top are the snowflake decorations on Saks 5th Ave(appropriate for the snowy day!) and directly above is the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree in all its glory.
At Bergdorf Goodman, these purses were turned 'spine out' to resemble books on a bookcase - so clever!!
Check out more glorious images of New York window decorations at

We do get snow in my country but I have yet to see it. I must experience snow before I die! LOL

Stefan, we have about 8 inches here today, still tapping at the windows! I love it. Home has a fantastic DC picture out! GT

The first snow is so beautiful, here in Kansas City it was a wet one that melted quickly..... in the meantime the trees were like a winter wonderland!

We have none, just a freeze-ass day, gray and dull. Weather forecast sorta said we might get a flurry or two tonight. I hope the snow stays around till we're in New York for Christmas. Mind you, having spent a week in Montreal in March experiencing a 24-hour horizontal blizzard and seen drifts in the streets seemingly yards high, I said I never wanted to see snow again. How fickle we are or, at least, am I.

Bergdorf Goodman, Everytime I get to NYC I head for Bergdorf and Henri's As for Purses.
I checked them out and ended up with three in China Town.
You know what I mean?? $$$$$
The images make me want to hop a plane. Not so easy with a sick dog and being OLD doesn't help.
warm seasons greetings.
it's almost here.
Break out the egg nog.

Getting snowed in and love it, as long there is not much driving involved....

XOXO
Hope you are snug, egg nog and all!

I direct all of my cabs during the Christmas Season down 5th Avenue! So stunning!

I hope everything you need for happiness is at your fingertips.Usually the midwest gets hit with a blizzard like this, and not the east. But I do remember big snows in Montpellier, Vermont where snow and silence came together in a great moment of wonder! Hope you get to where you want to be for the holidays.

This just in: bored architect needs new medium. Turn to Cookbook of the Day for architectural plans for gingerbread houses! At least you can eat your mistakes!
