Andrea's Christmas Bouquet

A holiday floral arrangement by me, flowers from Trader Joe's and red berries from the Oak Park Animal Care League resale shop. Recycled glass container.
A hearty mix for 10-degree holiday temperatures!

Happy Walking By Louboutin

At Barneys New York on Madison Avenue after a nice brunch, but having trouble contemplating how to walk on these.
At $3,895, I started calculating sales tax, and realized no one buying this number would ever bother doing the math. Vive Parisienne design.

Sufjan Steven's Christmas Unicorn

Composer and hipster musician Sufjan Stevens will be performing Christmas shows across our great land, and I must say the clever little ironic holiday song "Christmas Unicorn" is very addictive.

I'm a Christian holiday
I'm a pagan heresy
I've a penchant for sublime
I'm a mystical apostacy
I play all night with a magical kite
I'm a construct of your mind.
I'm hysterically American
I'm a frantic shopper and a brave pill popper
I know you're just like me
I'm the Christmas Unicorn
You're the Christmas Unicorn
It's all right. I love you.

Tickets for Stevens' Bowery show in New York, New York are only available two days before the 12/19 show. If that proves tough, listen to the song, "Redford (For Yia-Yia and Papou" and other songs available via

A Merry Christmas Chant

May blessings shower on you and yours today and always!
Have patience with this lovely video because at the end of it, you realize that daily war news from the Middle East overshadows so much good there - of all faiths.
Imagine the life of Christians in Syria, Iraq, Egypt & nearby places.

Eye Candy Kane

Not sure how to  feel about newspapers and a typewriter covered in snow in this fantastic Forest Park, Illinois holiday shop window, but better than covered in dust.
The theme is Citizen Kane, the movie, but candied - for Christmas.
