Trimmings and Tidings

The streets of Salem at Christmas time, 2011:  a walk around the decorated city.  I was attracted to simplicity and creativity, two things that I’m going to strive for in the New Year.

Skates and a sweater on black doors, on and around Federal Street.

River Street always goes all out, for every season.

These two houses on Federal Street always look great.

It doesn’t really “pop” in my picture, but the juxtaposition of the tiny vintage Christmas figurines in the window of this Broad Street house with the rusty old piece of machinery was really neat.

Minimal decoration, but I love these carriage houses.  The top one belongs to the Pickering House on Broad Street; the bottom one, just off the Common, has been recently restored.

Adorable window at the Mighty Aphrodite, a maternity consignment shop on Essex Street.  Green and red maternity dresses and a snowy, sparkly baby.

Glad Tidings to everyone this holiday season.
