If you happen to be a person who does the Tree Thing at the Holidays, it’s time to get that shit in order. I was in the Urban Outfitters on Fifth Avenue near 44th Street the other day and they had all kinds of fun ornaments to make a festive tree, such as this Pink Cupcake ornament, which you can see is quite sparkly. I like it.

Here are a bunch of them all hanging out together. “Ornament des Fêtes” translates to “Holiday Ornament”!

These Pink Cupcake Ornaments sell for $8.00 each! I am sure that most Urban Outfitters have them in stock!

How adorable is this tiny, painted wooden tree Ornament in the likeness of our favorite living artist, Yayoi Kusama? Answer: so darn cute!

Here she is posing next to a book about Kusama, which I bet is really cool.

You know what else you could do is thread her on a chord and wear her around your neck like a pendant. How fashionable! I may do that.

Yayoi (pronounced “Ya-Yo-E”) Kusama Ornament can be found in the MoMA Design Store and also perhaps Online.

Here’s another sweet shot from my trip to Palm Springs last Christmas. There’s a Saks Fifth Avenue at a swanky outdoor mall located in the adjacent town of Palm Desert, and I snagged a serious cache of blog fodder from their many eye catching in-store displays. This very fetching pink-haired mannequin is pimping “Little Somethings for the Ladies”. . . whatever they may be.

Video Clip of The Week (Christmas Edition): Kissing Party, “Warren City Christmas”



Merry Christmas, and welcome to our Holiday-themed The Video Clip of The Week! Denver-based quintet, Kissing Party‘s brand new video for “Warren City Christmas” is here to get you in the spirit. Imagine Charles Dickens venturing into the Brit Pop genre to create a full album – think melancholia you can dance to. With origins and inspirations from the gray bleakness of Pennsylvania and Ohio in the winter months, Kissing Party serves up boozy ballads about memories in Midwestern basements, jingling and rebellious carols for drunken gutter punks, mini pop symphonies contemplating the overwhelming grayness of the season, and heartbreaks and hangovers. The band’s new album Winter in the Pub (out now via Northern Transmissions) is an ode to December as the month of alt-cheer!

When you’re ready to move past the typical, uninspired cover collections this holiday season, when the awkward nostalgia of being in your hometown starts to sink in, Kissing Party’s Winter in the Pub has got your back. Kissing Party is: Gregg Dolan, Deirdre Sage, Shane Reid, Joe Hansen and Lee Evans. RIYL: The Wedding Present, The Smiths and The Sundays. Enjoy, and Merry Christmas!

I had just gotten off the C Train at Spring Street when I passed right by a lovely Christmas Tree Lot, where someone had created these adorable little Reindeer from  leftover twigs and bits of trees.

What a clever idea! I don’t know if they were for sale, or if they were just for adding spirit to the lot, but I enjoyed looking at them.
