Holiday Window Shopping: The ABCs and More!

After taking in all the seasonal spectacles Uptown yesterday, I headed downtown to ABC Home to take in its always-unique take on mixing modern with vintage and to investigate around the neighborhood for other surprises.

This year's glorious displays could have been taken from the fantasy-laced portfolio of the inimitable Tony Duquette, known for creating atmospheres from unexpected objects.


The symmetry of this tree shaped structure if formed from curved chair backs, pendant fixtures and long-legged stools.

And who wouldn't want to take a seat at this wintry white table all aglow with mystery and intrigue.
I turned the corner and found this surprising idea of turning socks into festive finery at the discounter Daffy's!

And just in time for Christmas Eve, Anthropologie set up a Christmas tree farm filled with crafted paper creations all covered with snow.

What do you think Santa will leave under your tree this year? Happy holidays to all my dear digital friends!

Always Frugal, Always Fabulous,

The Elegant Thrifter
