This is my "Vintage" Christmas card for 2008!

Sunday, December 21, 2008

Every morning, lunchtime and evening I see all these great stores and windows all decorated. Fifth Avenue in NYC is "amazing". I am trying to post a few pictures of some of the "different" decorations, things that you don't see in an ad for New York at Christmas. I hope you enjoy them. It will be really sad after the New Year to see it all go away.

FAO Shwartz Christmas

When I was little I had this piano in Black where was this cute pink one? FAO Schwartz is in a "Green" Christmas mode their campaign this year is "When Santa Turned Green". There is so many cute little nooks and cranies filled with different toys from all over the world and some old time favorites like Barbie also. Just a few pictures to see what is going on right now.

Pink Vintage Swap

I received my Vintage Pink Christmas swap from Heidi. Everything was so beautifully wrapped in cello bags beige twine and black ribbons and bells and she stamped the cutest tags for each one. It was so wonderful chatting back and forth with Heidi and look forward to getting to know her better. I sent Heidi her Pink Christmas Swap items also.
From me to HeidiI pink polka dotted a white box and stamped with a Christmas stamp

I wrapped everything in pink tissue paper and pink tulle bows and a pink "H" ornament..
