On the Avenue, Fifth Avenue

On my way to Rockefeller Center yesterday I passed Cartier's and was mesmerized by the windows. Please join me in a little elegant window shopping.  I made my way through the crowds and snapped two of the beautiful windows to share with you.

I'm partial to the necklace on the bottom. Which one is your favorite?

 I always get the same thought when I look at very (!) expensive jewelry. I think "I couldn't wear that on the subway." But I don't think the women wearing these necklaces worry very much about riding public transportation.

I had hoped that this would be a slow week at work. I had dreams of organizing my files and catching up on loose ends, but that doesn't seem to be on the schedule. Today flew by and there's lots to do in the next few days. I am managing to check a few things off the list and feel a little more organized.

Wishes to all for quiet moments and peaceful times!

Thanks for the big city window shopping! You wouldn't find that in my small town!

I'd like one of each please. In reality I'd never go anyplace appropriate to wear such finery. But it is fun to look for sure. Week to week our work is a little slower in the cold months because the company I work for does alot of outside work. We are keeping busy with inside work though and so things have remained about the same in my office. In January I'll begin to purge the old and store it all in the archives here. I hope your Tuesday is a great one.

I hope work slows down for you and you get all caught up!!!! I forget what you do for a job!!!!Sorry!!!!
Get that family together and get a --our Gang picture!!!!!You can buy tops for women at Ann Taylor Loft all the same color in many different styles,that way they are the same color--and makes you feel different too!!!We went with same top this year but 4 different colors!!! We did have to add a jacket or sweater over them though!!! BOys wore long sleeve shirts of different colors, we tried to all match the stripes in Miss Camdyn's top!!!!
