Vagabond Shoes -- back home again

Ah, New York, New York.



Yes, I can make it there.  For about three days.  Then the wallet dries up and blows away and the credit cards turn brown and curl at the edges.

Love this photo of one of the windows at Bergdorf Goodman reflecting the Plaza hotel across the street. In my opinion, the Bergdorf windows blow the socks off of any other windows in town.


Another Bergdorf  Window -- all about paper.  I wish I had better photos, but the gorgeous, sunny weather created quite a glare.





However, the little glowing windows of the buildings at the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory at the New York Botanical Garden rivaled the department store windows.  The Christmas Train Show at the conservatory was about the most beautiful thing I have ever seen.


An eight-foot-tall Empire State Building (made out of natural materials)



Brooklyn Bridge made out of sticks and bark!!!


A finger puppet show in beautiful Bryant Park (the Devil and Sweet Brown Bunny).


A recent purchase (ha).


If I can't go back soon, I'll just die.


If I get all stressed out about the upcoming holidays, and the travel, gift buying, card writing, cookie baking, etc., I'll just go, in my mind, to my happy place -- the sea lion pond in the Central Park zoo.
