Random Thoughts on a Cold Afternoon ...

“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.” .... Roald Dahl

The snowfall on Wooster Square in the early morning hours, while I'm walking Dusty. Isn't it lovely? So peaceful and still.
I think this grumpy little girl needs to take some Roald Dahl advice, don't you? She doesn't seem at all able to see the great secrets hidden! And her eyes are anything but sparkling right now. But she is still absolutely adorable. I found her at Sue Barton's blog Barton Originals.

Where is that darn cat now?!

My friend, Anne at el Milagro Studio just got out of the hospital after having surgery for the second time. I thought this was the wheelchair she should be using for the holidays - it's festive, but not too garish or over-the-top. I know that Anne is only interested in things that are the epitome of refind taste.
The fabulous New York store Buckhouse has the most gorgeous windows. Do I even have to tell you how much I lust for that fabulous early twentieth century English Follie?! So perfect!
...here's a better shot of the follie alone ... can you blame me for being moonstruck by it?!
Speaking of moonstruck - how about this holiday vignette?! Nothing short of enchanting!
... as is this globe ornament with French lord and lady of the court and a bottle brush tree! Yes, this would definitely find a place of honor on my tree!I recently had to get my hair stripped of the color put in it for the play last October...I really don't look like me with black hair. I look more like a convict with a parole violation. But, I got it returned to it's blonde glory a couple of days ago. Then I realized, not everybody prefers blondes!
Two new Wizard of Oz ornaments I found yesterday ... PLEASE - I need an intervention NOW. The yellow brick road outside the house lights up, and the ornament plays "Over the Rainbow." The witch's crystal ball with the quartet will disappear when you move your head, it also lights up and plays someething when plugged into a light string - I forget what LOL.

I do hope one of you is getting me this little entertainment for Christmas! I think having a singer-soothsayer on tap in a bottle would be an extremely convenient item for many occasions.
I hope everybody has been on their toes, getting their Christmas errands and shopping and baking and wrapping accomplished in a timely manner ...
...so that now you can go make something beautiful!
