Just for Christmas

Sit back and relax, and let the colors of Christmas give you a warm hug.

IMG_3150I am just back from some holiday shopping at my favorite nursery in our neighborhood – Sheridan Nurseries.  And look what I got for you. Tons of pictures which their Manager, Kevin let me take at my own slow pace.

IMG_3109 Do you think you can cut some logs, find some branches and make your own reindeer for the front porch?

While I was surrendering to the cheer around me, someone very friendly and very lovable popped his head to say a Hi!

IMG_3115 And I saw Mrs S too, baking gingerbreads in her big gingerbread house.

While Mr Claus had his red boots on, Mrs Claus looked dainty in her white skating boots.

Their home looked stunning with ornaments and fruits and flowers and lights.

IMG_3124 IMG_3137 IMG_3176IMG_3128 The trees were lined with soft, fairy lights and the reindeers roamed on the marshmallow-soft snow.

The table was beautifully decorated, the food was warm and the drinks were flowing like nectar.

Hope you enjoyed this little trip to the North. For more pictures of Christmas cheer, click here. (That sounds like poetry!)
