Dearest Fifi:

Finally, our plan to spend time together at the holidays has come true! Oh, Fifi, walking arm in arm with you through this winter wonderland has been just divine for me. And for all who have seen us, most will remember it as the best part of their holidays! Isn't it so much fun to give people exactly what they want? It is quite unfortunate that I have to continually run from all those PETA fur haters but if one can’t wear a fabulous fur in New York City, well, really? Where does one wear a fur?

As you know, Fifi, I much prefer being inside the stores looking for a little something shiny but at Christmas time the only place to be is outside looking in! The windows are the best ever this year. Don’t you think so, too?

Saks of course is amazing…

And Bergdorf’s? Oh my! Fifi, that looks a bit like you in the window! You must be someone’s muse and not know it.

Brilliantly creative…just like you! BG window3


I must confess, when I first looked at this window I thought someone had looked inside my head and recreated it! So many staircases leading to so many places and then to no place at all…it is a bit confusing when trying to find the front door again!

And just like Alice, I do believe I might have fallen down a rabbit hole or two… ny_louis_vuitton_on_fifth_avenue_christmas_2008_2_173


I am not a huge fan of anything with initials on it other than my own, of course, but aren’t Louis Vuitton’s windows just fab? ny_louis_vuitton_on_fifth_avenue_christmas_2008_5_119


And now we head to the greatest place in the entire world!



ny_tiffany_on_fifth_avenue_christmas_2008_03_136 Oh, Fifi! We’re at Tiffany’s! I must dash in quickly and get something lovely for you! I know how you adore that little blue box…and I might need to treat myself to a little something as well! I do love knowing that no matter what, I will always have exactly what I want under the tree! It is quite rewarding to be one’s own Santa. Speaking of Santa….! Oh dear, that story will have to wait for another time but I will tell you this, Fifi. Santa does not sleep in a chair. He has a lovely sleigh bed! rockefeller_center_christmas_tree


Walking home in the cold after a delightful dinner and a sip or ten if champagne I know I am so blessed, Fifi. Rockefeller Center’s tree, lights hung on the streets, cabbies honking their horns, the Santa’s ringing their bells…and you…I feel like this might be the most perfect Christmas ever. And it should be that way for BFF’s!


Sincerely,


Petunia who once again believes in Santa and his perfect gift giving abilities!

Makes me want to go to New York even more! But, I'll have to make do with the windows in San Francisco. Merry Christmas! --Delores

Kristine said...

I have always wanted to see these windows in NYC. Thank you for sharing them with me. Maybe one day I will get to go there in person..but you have settled my appetite for now.

Merry Christmas to you...

Kristine

Nancy @ Live love laugh said...

Oh, Fifi! If I had known, I could have virtually met you in NY! It is just a short train ride away! I am going in on Friday and will look for you in those windows!

My absolute fave place to be is N.Y. at Christmas time. Petunia, your taste is oh so delightful. I so adore little blue boxes as well, any size will do.
Did you hear that my little gem of a place called Tavern on the Green is CLOSED!!! Yes Petunia it's now closed. Where oh where will Randy and I celebrate our 23rd Anniversary brunch next year : (
You must find me a new place to dine...please....
Happy OW
Love Claudie

Megan Coyle said...

what a fantastic adventure, filled with color and exquisite detail :)

Petunia said...

Dear Claudie:

Maybe you would like to own a piece of Taven on the Green? An auction will be held from January 13-14. It might be grand fun to buy everything and turn your house in to your favorite place! Oh, the stories those walls could tell although I doubt they are talking much now...most likely stunned and sobbing! I have heard a thing or two about the place being closed for several years before a grand reopening but word also has it that the new owner is something of a theif! So beware! Get what you can an run, I say!

Sincerely,
Petunia

Jacqueline said...

What a BFF Petunia is, Fifi !! You're so lucky to have her although, she does sometimes get you into some tight spots.
Do you think that she would pop over to London and take me on a shopping trip, virtually ?
I look foreward to more of your adventues with her. Oh, and those New York windows are amazing. XXXX

La Petite Gallery said...

Thanks for showing us shut in's how lovely the world really is. Bless you Darlin,

You make me happy

Martha said...

Beautiful. With the demise of downtown department stores (where we live), the wonderful windows are now history -- malls don't have the windows!

They were one of the best parts of Christmas when I was a kid!

Karena said...

Fifi, I love the holiday windows, what great creativity!

Hootin' Anni said...

N Y is just so magical...all year long, but this time of year is like a fairy tale come true.


My Wednesday issue is posted. Come see my lighted Christmas Village HERE.

Juju at Tales of Whimsy.com said...

OMG
Those windows are splendid (the three that are brimming forth)...I love them!

bj said...

Beautiful windows...
When I was a little girl in Dallas, my mother would take me downtown to "window shop" at all the fine stores...so much fun and such a great memory. Thanks for this delightful post....

Oh Fifi, those store windows are fabulous and so incredibly creative!

I would love to go to New York at Christmas one year. I'd probably freeze to death, but it would be worth it.

jeanne said...

Dear Fifi, how absolutely thrilling this is. There is no place like the fabulous store windows in the city. I loved them all. So creative which is right up your alley.

I wanted you to know I missed the post with my giveaway painting and I just went there today to comment. You already know how thrilled I am. Thank you again.

Christmas love, Jeanne

eileeninmd said...

Thanks for the tour of the city and those fabulous windows. Great post and photos.

Dustjacket Attic said...

Oh that was just fantastic, I love it. We just don't have displays like that in Aus. Think we are a bit tooo casual.

Thanks for sharing,

Lori E said...

Well they are interesting displays but I am old school when it comes to Christmas.
I like the old fashioned Father Christmas types and the little workshops and mice and stuff like that. I know, boring, boring, been done to death.
Of course I am sure there is something in Tiffany's that will suit me just fine.

Brillante Home Decor said...

Christmas time in New York, just magic! I was there with you (virtually of course).

Nook Cranny Gifts said...

Dear Fifi,
What a fab adventure, thanks for sharing.
Hope you were able to get something grand in Tiffany's??
