Christmas is-a-coming!!


Short and to the point today!  I was visiting a large, local Garden Centre and, of course, all their Christmas displays are in full swing, along with Santa's Grotto.  Father Christmas arrived last Saturday and I shall be going along with my daughter and two young grandchildren, Eli & Ruby, to see him soon.  That's one of the joys of being a grandma, you get to do all the fun things again!

Here are some photoes of the displays that I again took with my trusty mobile phone.  I really MUST remember to carry my digital camera with me when I go out.




You might spot a certain someone hiding in the displays.  OK then, not hiding, but blatently posing!!

Oh my goodness, that's terrific! I would have never been able to get my kids out of there! I'd still be there!

Belle said...

What a great array of pictures! Looks beautiful.

That looks like a wonderful place. Like Sandra said above, I would still be in there too! I wish I could fly on over there right now...

Best wishes always,
Natasha.

PS I will link up your post from last week to this week's Sunday Song post if you would like me to. Just let me know.

Hi Natasha. That would be lovely if you could do that link up for this Sunday. I have actually had an e-mail from LindyLou (Tales from Italy)giving me the instructions, so I will have a go myself the following week!

Thanks for popping by Sandra. My daughter had told me only yesterday about your Blog,(Absolutely Narcissism) as she thought I would be interested in it, so I shall be coming right on over!

Awesome pictures and you do so well even without the camera. My grandsons would have loved to have been there. Have a great day.

So pretty. I am decorating here next week. I hope. I carry my little digital everywhere and stop and snap pics all the time. My family just sighs and thinks here she goes again! Your previous post sounds wonderful!

This...what great photos. It really is lovely the way you did the collage. Bruce and I have a passion for bears. All bears. Grizzlies, black, panda, brown, doesn't matter but when we see a polar bear we just are in awe. Seeing you standing with this model is fantastic. What a great shot. You look fabulous too missy! Love, love, love Christmas displays and pictures.

Thank you to everyone who said such lovely things about the Christmas photoes. Hope you don't mind if I don't mention you all individually this time. I think the staff in the store were getting a little concerned at me walking around taking all these photoes. They probably thought I was a spy from another store, sussing out their Christmas displays. LOL! For those of you interested in making a collage from your photoes, my daughter downloaded Picasa 3 for me. It took me a little while to get the hang of it, and I'm sure there are other programmes that possibly do the same thing. Give it a try, and let me see your collages!! x
