Lewis Ginter Christmas decor

Champagne and shopping tonight at Lewis Ginter.   The gift shop had several trees decorated so pretty.     I picked up several gifts for myself.  

Natural grapevine , pine cones,  Spanish moss and pretty red ribbon adorned the columns at entrance

garland draped with woodland creatures

owl made from natural materials

very pretty

I like the texture and roses on this one
Not much different than last year.

vintage shop - Christmas sale

Saturday we went to the open house at "Through the Garden Gate".    Always festive and good cheese , grapes and yummy cookies and brownies to snack on while shopping.
We always buy a snow man and I bought other things I didn't need,  thats the fun of shopping.
greeted by a gate with rudolph at the bottom
snowflakes seen from outside
fun wooden santa with old luggage behind him

blurry but still pretty
santa faces on metal
pretty dressed round boxes

I am gonna try a few of these myself

pretty setting on dresser-notice the salt and pepper shakers as angels

Very pretty gift bag someone made and for sale

pretty garlands

Old fashioned Santa

I liked this wreath right away.

Little touches like this brighten an area and add interest I think, now if I can remember to do little things like this
these are popular now it seems
Sharing with Make it pretty Monday
