I absolutely loathe running into Christmas in September or even August – there, I’ve said it out loud!
Because we are a retail store of sorts I shouldn’t feel that way, but we deal in vintage and we like Christmas to be special and not planned for a year in advance. I suppose we are more spontaneous and certainly can’t anticipate what we will find in the coming year to share with our customers.
My point is that we are beginning to decorate the store and will do it in layers.
(According to what we unpack is what layer we will be on – LOL!)
Today’s layer included this little vintage fellow in his Santa hat complete with candy cane.
Our kitchen tree and how did all those strings of lights die since last year? Next layer – lights – to arrive shortly from one of those other stores-provided they are still in stock! Wait, we only need a power strip to complete this one – thank goodness!!
I do love Christmas and the reason we celebrate, but for Pete’s sake it isn’t Thanksgiving yet. ~S~
