more Christmas in NYC

Ready for more Christmas photos?  These are the last ones – promise!   First up, is the ice skating in Bryant Park that I mentioned, but forgot to post. 


Next up is St. Patrick’s Cathedral as the sun set.  Pretty, isn’t it?



Next up the stores and store windows …. first is Saks Fifth Avenue.

These light up snowflakes are so pretty at night, but we’d left the area before dark.


Last up is a display of animated bears we saw on 53rd Street on our way out of the city.   These were adorable!

When I saw that last one, I thought of my friend Deb at Paper Turtle.   I figured once she saw these, she’d be making cut out trees and reindeer for next year!  Gotta love that crafty girl!

Last shot for today.  Anyone have any idea how I did this?  Because I don’t! 


Hope you enjoyed the NYC trip with me.  I am thinking this is the last post I will get in for 2011.   I hope to see you all back here in 2012.   Wishing each of you a very Happy and Healthy New Year and all the best for 2012! 

Best, always,

  7. Enjoyed these posts so much Stephanie.

    I am trying to get back into blogging groove. Changed the template and will decide if I want to keep it after living with it awhile.

    Wishing you all the best in 2012!

  8. The weather has been so wonderful, perfect for seeing the decorations in the city.

  9. Nothing says "Christmas Season in NYC" to me like buying a bag of warm, roasted chestnuts!

    Love the last shot too.

    Happy New Year Stephanie!
