Last Call...It's Twelfth Night

With hundreds of pictures, it is a little hard to squeeze them all in without going into overload mode. Today is the "official" end of Christmas...Twelfth Night and so I thought it would be fun to show you the holiday dressings in New York. Last call. Most will be gone tomorrow. Then, I am ending this post with a few fun literature and wine pairings I got from a friend.

Little (?) Drummer Man setting the beat
Ice skaters at Rockefeller Center and a tea party at Anthropologie

I guess one puts the entire Cartier building...contents and all on the list? Anyone got a pen?

Beautiful ballerinas at Henri Bendel
Always whimsical Mackenzie Childs
Foodie holiday antics at Barneys

Lovely simplicity

Believing in sugar (plums) at Macy's

My pictures from Bergdorf's did not turn out but the windows were spectacular. Maybe they are online should have a look at them. The creativity of all I saw was beyond words.

Sherry Lehman's
The last stop of that stroll leads me into the thought for today. Sherry Lehman is a wonderful wine store on Park Avenue. It served as the model for the wine stores my great uncle Jurgen opened up in Cleveland, Ohio. He came from Germany right before the war and was largely responsible for introducing Ohio to fine European wines and his wife, Burrie, for introducing gourmet cooking with a fresh European flair. Julia Child would have loved her. They had an amazing shop...gorgeous windows, incredible wines and cooking goodies to make Williams Sonoma envious.

So, one of my resolutions is to read more books and a couple of you have shared that is yours as well. Here are a couple of fun wine pairings I got from a friend to help you turn those pages. Happy Twelfth Night! Happy Thirsty Thursday!!

Read these classics with these pairings:
Wuthering Heights- a brooding Shiraz.
Scarlet Letter- Pinot Noir
A Tale of Two Cities- a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
Pride and Prejudice- Rose

Read modern tales with these pairings:
Fall of Giants- Malbec
The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest- French Sryah.
The Sentimentalists- Riesling
