This week I started to see Holiday window displays go up~up~up. Umm, hello where did Thanksgiving go? I feel a little unbalanced when stores skip holidays and head straight for X-mas. I want to enjoy my warm apple cider, fall foliage, and pumpkin pie--STILL--before mentally preparing for the winter holidays and snow. Hanukkah begins on December 21st this year, so I am very excited for the extra time to create & find perfect holiday presents.
Fred Flare opened a new store just in time for the holidays. The New York Times had a great article and images of their store design.
Print & Pattern is keeping me up to date on my favorite paper store across the pond, Paperchase. You can also find their stuff in a Borders near you.
Some handlettering to Santa at Macy's. The windows go along with the mailbox to send a letter to Santa inside the store.

Bryant Park Skating Pavilion & Rink
The design of the Bryant Park Rink this year is so clean, sleek and modern. Great ads & clever copywriting.
