Holiday Cheer


Christmas balloons at Saint Anthony of Padua Church on Sullivan Street in Soho.

I've been taking some pictures around and about. I'm very fond of this handpainted reindeer and the pastel colors on his festive wreath from Mexico which I got at ABC Carpets. He had big antlers which broke off but I still love him.

At Christmas I like green and white and pale colors. On the front hall table – evergreens, sea shell ornaments and a cyclamen, day...

and night, with Bell.

I love rusty metal ornaments – and hang them around the house.


These ornaments topped with silk flowers on the mantel are from Bergdorf Goodman.

On the dining table are ornaments which Bell has knocked off the tree.


Over the weekend it snowed a lot and Washington Square Park was covered.

The houses of Waverly Place that face the park are very Henry James, no?

The Washington Square Arch at the base of Fifth Avenue now frames a festive Christmas tree.

I'm hoping that your holidays are jolly and warm in every way.
