There’s no snow, no chill in the air. But it’s still a lovely sight in our small Florida downtown. I strolled around yesterday and fully enjoyed the beauty and good cheer of the season.
I dropped in on “my” thrift shop, Molly Mutt (aka The Cat Thrift). I could’ve had this darling tree, fully decorated, for only $2.50 (50% off Christmas stuff today):
A charming set of dishes for holiday dinner, only $30 for all:
Or a glam angel to watch over it all:
|Yes, it was warm enough for midriff tops! (not on me).|
Then a stroll down Main Street, and what! I ended up at my local, Meg O’Malleys.
|Palm trees are bedecked with tinsel.|
At Meg’s the mood was festive, warm and inclusive. My bartender bought me a Merlot and we toasted a fine friendship. There was a bear in a tree:
|Not an actual bear. Or an actual tree.|
I’m neither religious nor very traditional. But I do revel in the spirit of peace and kindness that infuses this season. I hope your holiday is full of joy! Much love and cheer to you all, xox.
Such a strange site for me to see: Christmas in the sunshine. But, like you, I like this season and the festivities. Neither religious nor very traditional either. Still loving it.
So nice to know there are other flip flop Christmases. But the bear and the tree…I haven't seen that before!
I wish you a merry christmas. Have a good time and enjoy your life.
I'm a little BA-humbugy .. mostly due to crowds . .. . but I do enjoy the decorations / festivities and wish everyone happy holidays.
Merry Christmas Patti ! That's cool that you have warm weather, I would like it actually 😉
Best wishes from Italy !

Okay, it's confirmed, I truly have a warped mind when I ask, what's the bear doing to the tree?
The streets are beautifully bedecked for the holidays there and it's hard not to be infected when a waft of optimism and goodwill rushes by. That's the part I enjoy the most. My only concession to the holiday is a gorgefest breakfast I treat myself to during my inspiration walk. The after effects stay with me all year long, mostly in the buttoxil area.
Wanting to wish all those I admire yet not step on any toes, I hope my wish is 'neutral' enough .. could not let the dawn and disappear without wishing you …
The Blessings of Peace
The Beauty of Hope
The Spirit of Love
The Comfort of Faith
May these be your gifts this Christmas Season.
Blessings to you and your hubby (Not too religious me thinks?)
