It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas

I am not surprised that half our mall is already decorated for the holidays. I laughed this year around August in a store with a sales girl and said “I’m amazed Christmas decorations aren’t up yet.” And someone who overheard me said they were in their local dollar store. Wow! I thought let me get through back to school and Halloween and then…..

But the chill is in the air and it has that “cold snowy” smell outside, it doesn’t help that it is damp and rainy today but in any event. It is November 11th so Christmas is just around the corner. I love the holidays and all of the festivities that go around them. Time to decorate the house and cook, cook, cook! There is nothing like the holiday spirit!

I have made some wonderful Christmas ornaments this year and I am just about ready to put a few of the pictures up in my new shop. Which one do you like? Personally I love them all, that is how I got started in this biz! LOL. But I am happy to create your own personal ornament for you if one of these gems doesn’t hit your fancy. Just pop me an email: theuntraditionatopiary@gmail.com The sky is the limit! So come on don’t be shy I love meeting new friends, and I’m happy to share a piece of your Christmas with you!
