Last week I visited my friend Sue at her shop, Sue's Floral Art. She has an array of Christmas decorations and some other lovely creations. Sue really is an artist and can make a beautiful arrangement in minutes. I had my grandchildren, Brooke and Wade, with me. She let each select an ornament.
I thought that maybe a visit to Sue's would inspire me to start working on decorations. I had wanted to do my tree in a Victorian theme. I just can't seem to get motivated this year. Last week our daughter, Stephanie, spent a day shopping with me and helped me select slippers and pajamas for the younger grandchildren. I always get each a game or toy also. In fact, usually I have almost all of my shopping done at this time of year. I also bake dozens and dozens of cookies. I haven't even thought about those yet (until just now). I hope that I see so many beautiful things in Colonial Williamsburg that I come home rejuvenated.
This lovely fried flower arrangement is exquisite. The light next to it enhances the colors in the arrangement.
I collect snowmen and especially liked these snowman ornaments.
These three angels are a contrast to the bright flowers. I would never have thought they'd look so nice next to each other. Notice the weathered door and primitive chair.
