I hope that everyone had a happy Thanksgiving. We did!
Last night the kitchen was cleaned up and the china and silver safely
stored in the hutch. And now ...
One of my favorite days of the year! No, I'm not fighting the crowds at the mall!
But I am starting to pull out the Christmas decorations. I have been itching to do
that, but I hold off until the day after Thanksgiving because I love to savor the
specialness of each holiday!
Of course, I might run over to a few of my favorite antique shops to see if there is
something special to add to this Christmas holiday decorating! Which reminds me ...
Tomorrow has been designated Small Business Saturday. Please go visit the
independent shops in your area. These small shop owners work hard to compete
with the big box stores and they often have such lovely merchandise and are
really happy to deliver great customer service. Remember Kathleen Kelly's "The
Shop Around the Corner" in the movie "You've Got Mail"? What a charming
shop that was and it was staffed with really knowledgeable people.
So there's your assignment ~ shop the small independent shops too!
So now that there are lots of leftovers in the fridge, a nip is in the air, and I
am all excited about decorating ~ I will leave you with this. I have been
dreaming of decorating my Mom's solarium all in pink and green for Christmas.
She does not know about this yet, so it will be a big surprise for her. I will be
sharing it all with you each Pink Saturday in December! In fact, I am headed
over to link this post up to Beverly's Pink Saturday and to visit the other
party goes to see their Christmas decorations!
In answer to your questions ~ yes Bentley had turkey yesterday! He's
napping right now but he will soon be helping me (watching me) bring the
Christmas decorations down from the attic.
