Last Saturday Outing-The Christmas Store

Sat was an enjoyable day. Niece D and I played tourist in Smithfield , Va, one of our locals towns.
Silly me did not take as many pics as I planned to though.
I think I must go brain dead once I put the camera in my bag!!
Did get some pics in the Christmas Store of some of the more colorful trees!!
This is where I bought the 2 ornies I shared on Tuesday's Teacup Post.
This was at one time a department store. Wooden floors and tin ceilings.

Sorry blurred ..the fishing tree!

We do live in farming country so here is the John Deere tree!
My first look at a yellow tree! Ha!!

Pretty in Pink.. ha!

Maybe feathers are your ones!!

How about a sea shore tree.
Blue and loads of pretty shells!!
We checked out the Farmer’s Market and several of the shops on Main Street.
Items we liked in the antique shop were a bit too high for my wallet.. ha!!
I did purchase a small flag at the flag store.
Will go back later in year for a couple large ones for Fall and Winter plus some for holiday gifts.
Will share more of our day in another post!!!
Some great finds!!!!
Off today with BFF Deb( no blog) to a LQS that is new to us.
Looking for some fab to go with the purple, cream and paisley fabs of the UFO blocks.


  1. Thanks for showing us the fun pictures of all those different-themed Christmas trees. (I'm still a traditional gal and like my Christmas trees to be GREEN!!!) I'm planning a trip to the LQS today, too.

  2. I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one who forgets to take pictures! Have fun fabric shopping today!

  3. That John Deere tree was pretty gross! I realize the Deere is the BEST, but let's leave it in the barn!!! LOL.

  4. Those are some great trees! LOL!
    Have a great day at the LQS!

  5. Oh, I love Christmas - but not the cold weather that comes with it! I love Christmas stores, too, any time of year. Thanks for sharing these photos (and the pics of your cute little ornaments, too!)

  6. Oh how pretty! The John Deere one is cute for a guys tree, Just not in my living room!
