It's Beginning to Feel a Lot Like Christmas

     My good friend and I have a little tradition we've done for the last several years. We meet for coffee then head about 20 miles out of town to a wonderful shop called, Turned Antiques. It's only open from the first of May to Labor day, on the weekends, and November to Christmas, weekends.

     Besides early American antiques and contemporary home furnishings, they also have fun gift items. And during the holiday season they are decorated to the nines. It is fun to just go and look around.

This was just as you walked in the door

Pretty much everything is for sale

From the many Christmas decorations

To a variety of antiques

Everything is a feast for the eyes

So many fun things from clothing, kitchen items, lotions & soaps to jewelry & toys.

My friend and I agreed that this year's decorations were the best so far.

We usually try to go right after Thanksgiving. It really gets you in the holiday spirit and we always come away with a few treasures.

     I wish you a Christmas filled with love and laughter, and hope the New Year brings you much joy. 

A thought to ponder: "Maybe Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas...perhaps... means a little bit more."      The Grinch
