HOLIDAYS: We wish you a retro Christmas ♫✫*¨★.¸¸.✶★¨`♫

What could be more old-time Christmas-y than Bing Crosby crooning on the record player,
and sputnik ornaments hanging from the tree?

... not to mention, all over the living room ...

                                                                                                   ... or in department store windows?
                                          (These giant glass baubles are by Dale Chihuly, at Barneys in NYC.)

 It's time to pull out all the stops, light-fixture-wise.
If you're a collector, now's the time to put them all on display.

 Dinnerware, usable once a year.

I love this silver aluminum tree with turquoise baubles.
A warning, though: NEVER hang electric bulbs from
an aluminum tree. They're a serious fire hazard.

                                                    Merry Pinkmas! (In Pantone's 2016 Colors of the Year, sort of.)

 ... And to all, a good night.
