Holiday Windows

Just because the winter holidays are over doesn't mean we can't still enjoy the season.

As we usually do, my husband and I visited New York City on 1 January and walked down Fifth Avenue looking at the holiday decorations, especially the windows. Here are a few that caught my eye. Enjoy!
Sheep in bow ties!

Needlepoint Squirrel

Bright Puffins

Very '60's

Needlelace-like fabric


Very Victorian!

Lace cuffs

Sequins and embroidery-but bugs and snakes?!

Butterflies-yes; snake and ants-no!
