Hustle Bustle

I spent some time waiting for my husband and mother-in-law yesterday on the corner of Broadway and Spring Street (it was really cold, thanks guys)...


It's quite a busy intersection in SoHo so I grabbed the opportunity to capture some of the hustle and bustle...


Some people looked so determined...


I'm sure many of them were running around looking for last minute gifts--and perhaps some fun stocking stuffers (I always do those last)...




We have a tradition in my home of filling each other's stockings with tons of silly gifts and dollar store items.  My husband is the best at picking out the goofy gifts for my stocking!  The stockings are already all stuffed and laying on the floor because they are too heavy to hang now.  There is also a spill-over area for stocking gifts that won't fit inside!


We are musing about stockings over at Mortal Muses today.  Hop on over and share your stocking images and stories and link up for a chance to win today's giveaway.

I always do stocking stuffers last. Which reminds me, I better go get some!

The guy in photo #3 looks super-intense!

I love filling stockings with silly, fun stuff! The first year of our marriage we were on a really tight budget so before Christmas we decided we each had $20 to fill the other's stocking -- amazing what a little ingenuity will get you! (We still do this, though we've upped the limit.)

Very fun, we are missing our stocking this year. Interesting to see that the shiny puffy coats with fur-trimmed hoods are not just an Italy thing!
