Bergdorf Goodmans goes to the Birds!

Of yesterday's post jeanette mistress of longears commented...

A wonderful flight of fancy today.

Funny that birds should be so associated with the holidays...

It seems more appropriate for this Bergdorf Goodman Xmas window... Absolutely chock-a-block with birds... And titled "SPRING"!!?? What would you retitle it? Shall I make this one of those blog contests? OK! The BEST retitling of this window gets this "BIRD" watercolor!!! Rules of the contest...
Please live in the USA!
You have until MIDNIGHT today, Tuesday to leave your title here in the comments!!!

Emailed titles don't count.



This dog baying at the moon was not part of the bird-themed window...
But this baby with beans was...
This cock-eyed reading cockatoo went in upside down and refused to co-operate! :(
Are there literary references here?

There certainly are plenty of bookish birds present for sure!
Here's a full view of the bird-themed window, so put your thinking caps on and get cracking!

BONNE CONTEST!

    Pardon my fractured French:

    La maison de Jadis

    This is exactly how I would imagine Jadis, the White Witch in the Chronicles of Narnia, at home!

    Kind of creepy, actually....

  29. Hello,
    I have two suggestions. For now anyway. One is A Dove's Dream. the other (in my lousy French) reverie en ivoire or reverie in ivory.

  30. How about Folie sur l'aile blanche?

  31. When looking at the window photo I thought..
    Winter's elegance. Then I thought
    Winter white, soft as feathers.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love the literary birds. I think this proves that "bird brains" is a total fallacy.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I'd call it "A Mid-Winter Nest"

  34. Feather Fest Folly

  35. All of the titles suggested so far are so great I don't know how you will pick just one. Perhaps you will have to draw straws? Living in FL I can't relate to all the white, it looks so cold. I guess I'll throw my suggestion in as "Lost Snowbirds" (they can't find their way to FL. ;-)

  42. All I can think of when I look at it is "Feathered Femmes & Friends".

    It's quite the display, isn't it? I'd love to see your watercolor interpretation of it...

  44. AMAZING window... soooooooooo beautiful! I have got to make a trip to NYC for Christmas!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Had I been "allowed" to share in the game, I would have said : "One bird in the window is worth two in the bush"!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Bergdorf window, hmmm? Very interesting. Beautiful photo too Carol. I have no idea what I would rename this...but I agree with you, "Spring" certainly doesn't work for me...

    Les Oiseaux d'Hiver?

    Hi Carol,
    I call this " mystical night"
    Best,

  51. My suggestion would be "An Aviary Apparition"

    It's gorgeous. Too bad the art of window dressing is limited to the big cities,it seems.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I didn't want to muddy the contest waters with an irreverent post but my very first thought was "Pillow Fight!"

    ReplyDelete
  53. Ooh, I have another one. Sorry, but I can't get this contest off of my mind: "The Tiki Chici Room." My favorite place at Dineyland is the Tiki Room, "Where the birds all sing and the flowers bloom, in the tiki tiki room."

    One more and then I promise I'll quite:"Birds of a feather winter together."

  54. Beautiful. Flocks of fun. ;-)
