What better way to sign off for the holidays than with photos of some truly beautiful Christmas trees, both of which were decorated by designer Richard Nelson. The photo at top, taken in 1966, shows the ceiling scraping tree that graced the music room in Richard's former New York apartment. This tree stood watch over Richard's much lauded Christmas party of which I wrote a few weeks back. And the one below that is this year's tree in Richard's Newport home.
I want to wish all of you best wishes for a truly happy holiday and a healthy and joyous New Year. I'll be spending the holidays in Atlanta with a New Year's trip to Ireland. I'll see you in 2011!
