A Christmas Open House


I know it is just November 9th, but I am so in the mood for Christmas! My friend Cheri and me went to an Christmas Open House at a store in Scottsdale called “The Décor Store”.  They always do an incredible job for the holidays.  Not much that I would use in my vintage Christmas decorating but it sure was fun to share a day with my buddy!

Warning….Photo heavy post!

Oh, I am in the mood to visit our town's big Christmas market this weekend after seeing your post, but wouldn't you know it, my husband and I are both down with what doctor says is a sinus infection but feels much worse than that. Loved seeing the pretty pictures on yours.

I get all excited by glitter and candy-shaped ornaments! There cannot be enough peppermint and gingerbread in the world for me! Thanks for the great pics! =D

My Aunt used to take us to a holiday store in Houston growing up and I have never forgotten the magic I walked away feeling...perhaps that is why I love Christmas so much...smiles..Renee

I just love going to Christmas Wonderlands! Thanks for sharing your pix of the beautiful shop near you. Fun for ideas, too!!

Oh Sandy! Your blog banners are wonderful. They truly remind me of your Au Claire visits. This is the most incredible store. I have never seen so many decorations in just one store! Wow! The holidays are coming so quickly now! EEK! Thanksgiving right around the corner. Have fun at Meri's. Her home looks absolutely beautiful! Elizabeth

EEEEEKKKKK! I must apologize to you. I mistakenly put Laura's name for your wreath! I have since changed it so the photo of your wreath is linked to your name and blog.
I really enjoyed myself today and I'm glad that I finally met you. I'm so used to reading your blog that I'm happy to meet you under such happy circumstances. Looking forward to seeing you again for other crafting activities.
