The entire front section of the store was Christmas. Velvet poinsettias. Ornaments. Decorations. Trees. My eyes lit up and I think I must have said, "Oh...!" Joe told me to just stay there and enjoy myself while he went to get what he needed and he would meet me back there. That's all I needed to hear. Oh yes! I LOVE Christmas!
So I slyly took out my camera and clicked away so I could share it with you, my loyal readers.
I told you we didn't leave with just one thing. I saw the amaryllis and just had to have one. There were all red ones and this pretty red and white one. That's the one I wanted. It reminds me of peppermint. Just right for Christmas. There were paperwhites too, but after my last foray with them, I won't get them again. You can read about the time I grew them in 2010 right HERE.
I loved looking at the ornaments and blow ups and trees. And all the little trinkets. Oh so lovely. I know a lot of people would rather wait until later in the year to look at Christmas things, but I could look at them all year long. I would love working in a Christmas store.
One of my favorite things there was this toy phone. When you picked it up, Santa started talking to you. "Hello, this is Santa at the North Pole. Have you been good this year?" "Hello, this is Santa at the North Pole. I'll be seeing you soon." It was so cute.
So now it's time for me to get off of here and start dinner. Stuffed peppers tonight. Yum.
