A Few of My Favorite Things Pink Saturday

It's once again time for Pink Saturday, a very fun weekly linkup. There's lots of pink this week, but also a number of posts celebrating the season. I went with the latter and I'm happy to share a few of my favorite things this time of year.


"My Favorite Things" celebrates "girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes," but I would amend it to include little girls in their party finery, whatever color. The beautiful dresses in this store window on Madison Avenue caught my eye.




Next on my list are the flowers of winter. I don't have any bulbs to force yet, but I think that's the first project for December. I loved the array at this florist.


This may be my favorite sight of the season, the scaffolding for the Christmas trees on the next block. I was so excited to see it on Wednesday. The trees have arrived -- there will be pictures -- and the block is transformed to a moment in a forest. The aroma is wonderful!

I promise lots of pictures of Christmas in New York in the next month. I will be making my annual visits to Rockefeller Center and Macy's and scouting out other great decorations. I am also pleased -- actually thrilled -- to announce that I have ordered my New York City Christmas photo cards. I think this sets a record for the last several decades for the most timely card order. My next holiday project is ordering candles from our dear Becky at Good Neighbors Candle Co. This has become a regular and fun part of the season for me.

Thanks as ever for visiting and take good care of yourself. Keep cozy!

Cool.
Now that the trees are lined up on both sides of the sidewalk, I need to shorten BJ's leash so he doesn't pee on them.

Those 3 children's dresses are darling, I kinda like the gold one. Now where would I wear it, if they make it for growed up girls, that is.
Great photo of the florist display.
