In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Christmas open houses and a couple of recipes!

 Happy Thanksgiving! 
Here is a great recipe for a salad that my sister makes that I love!
 And this cheese spread was pretty good if you need an appy recipe.
 What's everyone doing for Thanksgiving?
We go to my Sister and her husband's house, so all I have to do is cook a couple of things to take.

 A couple of weeks ago Mom and I went to some Christmas open houses.
The first one was Horton's in Tipton.
They are having another one on December 1 and they will have vendors there at that time.  So if you missed this one, you might want to try to get to the one on December 1st.
Here are a few of the decorations.
I love hanging lights and lanterns.

 After Hortons, we went to a little mall next door to Horton's, and visited a few boutique shops.
 One store had antiques and this album was there.
It was a little pricey so I didn't get it, but I did manage to get this picture!

 After we went to the mall, we ate (fast food) then stopped by Bowden's Flowers. 
They were having an open house.
This was in an alcove up by the ceiling.

Who has their Christmas decorations up?  (nope)
Who is in the Christmas spirit? (yep)
Who is ready for Thanksgiving? (yep)



  1. I love seeing all the bright decorations in the shops at this time of year, I have not desire to get anything new this year, our tree is full of family history, so yes I am in the festive spirit, nope no tree up until 1st December, and we don't do Thanksgiven, but enjoy yours.

    1. I love trees full of history. I have some history on ours too and I don't need anything new either. As a matter of fact I might be getting rid of some stuff.

  2. I love seeing all the decorations at Christmas time. I don't do much as there is just DH and I. We cut a tree off our own property so it doesn't go up until a few days before Christmas. We have a very quiet Christmas season. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
