Baby, it's cold outside!

Baby, it's cold outside! Wasn't it just last week when we were enjoying 70-degree weather? It's in the low 40s this evening as I write, and temps will dip into the 20s before morning. Well, this really is more reasonable for December in NYC, n'est pas?

Today, in between unpacking boxes of new arrivals, I have been trolling iTunes for some alternatives to The Nutcracker which I love, but after a while...

I found some great Peggy Lee holiday tunes, including the hilarious "Little Jack Frost Get Lost" that she sings with Bing Crosby. Passing over the usual fare by Nat King Cole and the ubiquitous Bing, I opted for "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Mambo" and "Cha-Cha All the Way." I am addicted to old-school mambo beats. Nothing puts me in a better mood!

So here are some pictures of new arrivals, as well as a picture (at the top right) of the amaryllis we've had growing at our apartment. Jae bought it a few weeks ago with one stalk in bloom, and after that finished we noticed another stalk growing. Every day it has filled out more and more, and 2 days ago it started to open up! It's quite a mystery, watching things grow.

Our big basket of Sol Mate Socks is full again! We have every size in every colorway.

New slipcast porcelain by Mary Anne Davis in holiday-flavored colors. The new batch is a tad heavier than what we've had before. It is still extraordinary, but it feels less fragile. (We still have some pieces from previous batches in stock, too.)

Juice cups in lavender with a deep inky blue inside. Seed and pod vases in red, gold, green. Eight-inch bowls in deep reds and golds...

I LOVE this bowl! It's deep lime inside and inky blue outside. (about 8" diameter)
