Greetings ~~

Greeting from the Cabin ~~
Making Christmas in shorts and a
tee shirt.lol It was very warm today,
so it was out with fall,
and on to the Christmas Season.
My front porch is done, and I have
sprinkled it here & there in the shop.
I spent a few days last week in PA visiting
my good friend Susan at her beautiful home.
We spent two days out & about visiting all
my favorite shops.
I happily soaked up all the
Christmas Spirit and Cheer
that one can only get by visiting Friends
.


If you get the chance please, stop by
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
aunt daisy's ~~ Emmaus, PA

The Cinnamon Stick ~~ Hereford, PA

Diane Windle's ~~ Log Cabin Antiques ~~ Coatesville, PA

Pheasant Run Antiques ~~ Gap, PA

Sharon Renningers ~~ Country Meadows ~~ Kutztown, PA
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Each and every shop does it there own Wonderful way,
seasonal music playing, goodies to munch on,

the special smells of Christmas waifing from
the potpourri & candles they burn.
They all have very distinct wares, antiques and hand-did's
for sale...plus you will be greeted with a warm smile, and
leave a little happier than when you walked in.

I promise ~~

As I always do I came home with loads
of ideas, inspiration,and great memories.
I have a Grateful Heart that besides
being Blessed with a most

Wonderful Family, God has
granted me Wonderful Friends ~~

(Gratitude Attitude)


As my Friend Marilyn
from (Thistlebrooms) signs off ~~
Enjoy The Day He Has Brought You ~~
Sending Warm Happy Hugs from the Cabin ~~ Connie xox

Hi Connie!....it's been very warm here as well, and you know me, it's not what I like!

Your jaunt to PA sounds like a dream, I would love to visit those shops!

Hi Connie,
I'm loving the white pumpkin displays. Now, I know how to keep mine around a bit longer after Halloween!

Beautiful displays Connie. I don't know if I am ready just yet for Christmas. I love the idea of pumpkins and greenery though. A lil bit of both holidays :)
Beautifully done my friend.

Hi Connie!! Just love those Italian names (above) ~ God bless our veterans.

Your porch looks fantastic. EVERYONE needs to get Judy Condon's book "Country Decorating for All Seasons" to see more of your beautiful home!!! Just drooling over those.

I am so motivated to decorate for Christmas but have turkey things out now. You know what I'll be doing the morning after Thanksgiving though! Have a wonderful day! Hugs and blessings ~ Jenn
