The Christmas Season Has Offically Started.

Hello everyone,

Last Tuesday a girlfriend and I headed to The Quad Cities -Festival of Trees. The tree and room displays were wonderful. I thought I'd share just a few of those trees with you today.


Thanksgiving is just a fond memory for this year and today Black Friday, is the unofficial, Official start of the Christmas season, for Christmas 2010.


Did you start shopping at midnight?


Not me.


This year, after many years of standing in cold lines in the wee hours of the morning,


I decided that I was not going to join in the frenzy and insanity of Black Friday Shopping.


Late in the morning,


I did head over to my local fabric store and picked up some real bargains on fabric -


for items I want to make for Christmas.


That was the extent of my shopping, The rest of the time was spent with Sir Knight -planning projects and sitting in our library watching a movie together.

My kind of day. (stress free)

Hugs,
Penny

Lovely Tree display!

I especially like the "Icicle" Tree. And the one, which is a lady's costume skirt. :-)
