What I love most about this family of Hot Pink Dogs (probably meant to represent some sort of Spaniel) are their expressions, which manage to convey a mix or stoicism and surprise simultaneously.  Arf.

Geoffrey and I went all the way down town on a mission to investigate the Museum of Feelings, which turned out to be a bust, because the line was (realistic estimate) 90 minutes to 2 hours long. And we are about waiting in lines no. So, while we were down there (because Battery Park City is a fucking haul from our respective residences), we decided to just see what kinds of cool snaps we could take. Because Geoffrey is obsessed with the Instagram, and I know that I can always score a few blog hits with a fun photo.

And what we saw as soon as we walked into the Brookfield Place mall, which is what you have to walk through to get to the Museum of Feelings, was this awesome Christmas Tree studded with Disco Ball Ornaments. Super Groovy.

As you can see, the ornaments are  mix of the classic mirror disco ball variety, and red or green mirrored mosaic designs. Festive!

Very nice!

As we walked through the mall towards the water, we entered the famous Winter Garden, (which was destroyed in the 9/11 attacks, but as since been beautifully restored) and that is where the full-on Disco Ball Christmas Trees were hiding.

If you end up in that part of town for whatever reason during the Christmas Holidays, take some time to walk around and enjoy all of the decorations, because it is really beautiful down there.

The American Museum of Natural History has its Holiday Tree on display, and what’s special about this tree is that it is decorated entirely with Origami Ornaments! The theme of this year’s tree is Wicked, Wild and Wonderful, honoring the Museum’s new exhibition The Power of Poison. The ornaments were created especially for the tree by volunteers who began folding them in July to complete hundreds of creations that are displayed on the tree and around its base. Here are some of our favorites from this years’ display!
