Winter morning walk

The chill of winter is here. It was a beautiful morning for a walk by the lake.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Green

These ‘green’ images were taken during our scrappy adventure in Europe, most of the photos were taken in Italy. At the time it was Spring and green landscapes were in abundance but rather than share the copious number of landscape shots I thought it might be a little more interesting to find other green things in my album.

Christmas all year round

Yesterday a friend took me to a place where it is impossible not to smile and be happy, a place where it is Christmas all year round, a warehouse filled with everything Christmas. Although I object to walking into a supermarket in September and seeing Christmas decorations for sale, the Christmas Shop reminded me of those we visited in Europe (except that here I was allowed to take photos) and I love being able to see and choose from so many different types of decorations, lights and Christmas goodies.

Do you love a good Christmas shop or hate the thought of entering a store where it looks as though Christmas threw up all over the shelves? With the year flying by and Christmas looming just around the corner, I have a feeling that I’ll be a regular visitor the Christmas Shop 🙂
