  1. The red curtains! I want to see them in person :)!

  2. Meredith,
    they look even grander, standing right in front of those windows!
    Happy New Year!

  3. i love the twinkle and sparkles and garlands that the holiday season brings to the city. so lovely and inviting.
    as always beautiful captures.

  4. i think my favorite is the red planters but, wow! those red curtains are pretty awesome too! what a treasure!

    thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. hope your day is grand!


  5. Dearest Merisi,

    I love the gorgeous with the snow...but those red planters? Wish I could drag them home with me...I've told you before, and I say it again...your photos are exquisite...and these will be favorites with me as they feature my most favorite color!!!! You're an amazing artist, my friend!!! Love you! Janine XO

  6. Oooh! Another one! How nice :-)

  7. Thank you all,
    I am glad you enjoy my long good-bye to Christmas season! I have more scheduled to be published. After all, there's still Christmas celebrated somewhere: The Russian Orthodox Church will celebrate its Christmas tomorrow, on January 7th! I also could rename my blog, "Merisi's Christmas Throughout The Year" - wouldn't you join me? *giggles* Really kidding, enough is enough, my Amaryllis are growing taller by the day and they are there to remind that it's time to let go. Alright, will let go. Soon.After tomorrow. Maybe. ;-)

  8. ...Absolutely stunning...the places...the combination of the pastels; the touches of red...the white of winter...MAGNIFICO!!!!!!

    I wish you a wonderful.. tomorrow!

    ciao ciao elvira

  9. Vienne is so pristine...
    if you were in New Orleans you would be drunk as a skunk on 12th night or so Janice says..

  10. Just beautiful. I know everyone gushes over the red but my personal favourites are the touches of turquoise.. just gorgeous. You have such a knack, my friend. :)

  11. Nice to keep the Christmas tree as long as possible when it looks so pretty. Nice collection of red things.

  12. I am really enjoying your recent photos and your color themes....this one seems to be red and turquoise...a lovely combination!

  13. I love the stark look of the red planters and the red lampshade. What a great composition Merisi.
    Keep posting the Christmas things. They are beautiful.

  14. Aren't those red planters stylish?
    (loved your comment over at ff-how could I forget Azzurro??).
    Your posts make me wish I could do Christmas over again - I'll only have to wait 12 months!

  15. Those little touches of red remind me of winter berries.

  16. Thank you all! :-)

    I agree!
    Nature still is our best teacher, even when we don't realize where an inspiration comes from, others may just detect it again for us, like you just did. That's why we need artists like you! :-)

  17. Sara,
    it always tickles my fancy when someone notices that I tried to keep to more than one color scheme! ;-)
    Turquoise and its darker cousin, petrol blue and verdigris patina are colors often seen in Vienna, accented by gold and brass.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
