Christmas photos

I found these photos Monday, and since I'm struggling to find something to share on my blog, I thought I would share these I took right after Christmas.

I was at my friend and neighbor Sally's when I took these photos.  I was waiting for her to get dressed, and did a quick dusting of her kaleidescope with my hand.  I'm more careful at my place.

I was actually inspired by Johanna at Mixed Media Fun, who took photos of a homemade kaleidescope with her camera.

Mine, unfortunately,

didn't fare as well.

Then I was off to WalMart, where I took a photo of these Lindor chocolates.  I think Chris at Pear Shaped Crafting was the one who talked about them, but I can't remember now why I took the photo, other than to respond to someone (CHRIS?) who talked about them at Christmas.

Next, I left Sally behind and went into this high end nursery.  Wish I had taken more shots, but all I was interested in were the trees.

Although I don't show the ones I purchased in any of the photos,

be assured I purchased three new ones on deep discount at this incredible place.  You will have to wait till next Christmas to view them, because they have been put away since shortly after Christmas.

Thanks for joining me for the look back in time, as I share photos I found from Christmas.  And of course, thanks for joining me today.  Your visits mean the world to me.

Great idea to show some photos to entertain us!
You are a bad girl to let me wait nearly a year to see what you have purchased in that nice shop .Shame on you!
Happy Wednesday!

Well, the first photo caught my eye on the daily digest of Bloglovin' and I just had to visit when I saw it was your blog. What a gorgeous piece it is, I want to stroke it.
Love the high end shop photos - no wonder you had to buy something from there, bet the prices are a bit high when on normal sale but hope you bagged a real bargain.
Love to my four legged friend (and you and the other fur baby)
Hugs too, Neet xx

Always happy with a sale! Those Lindor chocolates- it might be the liquid centers that someone mentioned to you. They are decadent, in a good way.

What a beautiful shop! So many pretty lovelies. And you got some on sale to boot. Good for you. And now I'm craving chocolate.

Nurseries have such beautiful displays.
I didn't realize Sally lived nearby. Perfect!
You have a warm, colorful day.

Lindor chocolates sounds good :) I like the trees, especially when you can get them on clearance. I look forward to seeing photos of the ones you bought when next Christmas comes around.
