Soho Reds

Are you putting a red bow on it?

Kate Spade
thinks you should

Give colorfully. Watch the fun movie!

Sunday night a lot of people were out scooping up some color to give

Accross the street (Mercer street) the girl Santas at Vivianne Tam wished the lights were on.

Seen in Vivianne Tam's window

Balthazar Bakery was buzzing.

What to get?

Converse on Broadway were full of red Converse. What else?

Next door at Dean & Deluca I was hypnotized by a table full of French caramels

They had lots of shaped cakes like this drum...

And a Mr. Snowman cake:
Dark chocolate layered w/chocolate moose & caramel, covered in vanilla butter cream wrapped in white chocolate!

New York yellow cab ginger cookies at D&D - I prefer gingerMEN for authenticity

Merry Hols!

And Happy Holidays

Antique Garage looked cosy and nice last night but I had to run home to paint cats :)



  1. Oh I wish I was in NYC at Xmas time. Looks magical with such an ambience. Love the cakes: the snowman is particularly cute with the ear-phones, or perhaps I should be antique and say ear-muffs. That's some garage but bet your cats are purretty! Happy holidays, Carol! Hugs from a bitterly cold Paris.

  2. Hope your holidaaaaaze are as colorful
    as this post, Carol.

  3. I am always so happy to see Christmas windows & Sunday night bustle-in-NYC. Thanks, Carol!

    (Julie le Chat is waiting to put on her red Christmas ribbon until the 24th:)
