Holiday Colors

The day after Thanksgiving marks the beginning of the holiday shopping season for many folks. We put up our holiday decorations, and the folks who came in to the shop today had holiday gifting on their minds. We saw a few locals, and many out-of-towners who were happy we were open.

I just love the smell of Christmas greens... I bought some kissing balls for the shop, and was drinking in the smell as I prettied them up this morning, before hanging them outside. Why spend extra on pre-decorated wreathes & garlands when you can stash dive and decorate your own?! We had some half balls of Tilli Tomas Pure & Simple, Tilli Tomas Rockstar and Artful Yarns Lustro, and put them to good use.
So now that we've got our green and red... all we need is white! After too many days of temperatures in the 50's, there's snow in the forecast for tonight. I even heard it was already snowing at some of the local ski resorts; though here in the valley, we're just seeing rain.
Fingers crossed!
