holiday windows : anthropologie+



Hi Everyone -

Well, we're at the end of our holiday tour with Anthropologie, Rockefeller Center. I especially liked these windows as this is a favorite store. The displays were cozy and pretty in their unique vintage-style. There were two women pressed up against the windows with their cameras who were so cute. One took out her Holga camera at the window with all of the boxed Christmas balls and you know she captured something special.

When we got to Anthropologie Scott was a little bit tired (we walked about 2 miles at that point) and said he would go inside and look around! He did get me a surprise, which is probably some kind of soap. He loves soap and is always smelling it. Go figure!

There are a few extra treats at the end. Thanks for joining us!

xo, Cindy












Saks Fifth Avenue
The theme for this group of windows was "A Flake Like Mike' from the book by Mike Reiss and they were full of Swarovski crystals.




Not yet ... keep going.

Rockefeller Center
It has become really difficult to get a photos of the tree. There are so many people and they have cordoned off the best spots. But, there's always a way. We'll try to capture the tree and angels at night, which is when they look the most beautiful.





Grand Central
Light show! We started at 9:30 am, and as the clock indicates in the photo below, we finished at 2:30 pm! We had breakfast at a new place called Danku, followed by a quick diversion into Lacoste - sale yay!, lunch at Sarabeth's, and then on our way home for dinner and a nap. We love New York City and feel lucky to live here. Some people never leave their own neighborhood and explore other parts of the city. That sounds crazy to us as it's not always an easy place to live. We're happy to share our experiences with all of you. But, for now, that's all folks! See you tomorrow with some really happy music.

cindy, i'm just so delighted that you shared all of this with us. these widow displays are such a far, far cry from what we see here in southern ohio. i loved the anthropologie photos and the barney's photos with all the peace signs hit home with me as well.

Thanks for all these wonderful pictures of all the windows! San Francisco really did NOT step up to the plate this year in the window department!! New York is always amazing in that department.
