Last week, I began decorating my apartment for the holidays. I wanted to have a seasonal feeling for a wee gathering I was planning last night, so the mantle and windowsill were decked for the occasion. This year, I'm not getting a tree. This is massively controversial for me, but I was inspired by Housemartin and am writing a column for work about it too.
Today was a slow day, thanks to the wine imbibed last night. People are starting to get crazy in the stores. Whole Foods & Williams Sonoma were filled with those glass-eyed, on-a-mission types who won't hesitate to bodycheck you with their double bugaboos. Despite all this, I love Christmas, the decorating and entertaining! Here are some shots.
