Yesterday, I met up with my youngest daughter, Jennie to do a little small town Christmas Shopping in Sumner, WA.
We met in the parking lot of our favorite shop.
It was a cold day and we were bundled up to do some serious walking.
This small town has many little shops and restaurants for a fun day of shopping .
First stop was the 'Garden Market'.
Everything in this darling shop is swoon worthy.
There is a large courtyard and greenhouse out back with statuary and urns and pots and the loveliest of arrangements, with all the plants to make your own.
The urns are especially wonderful.
Inside the shop are trees and decorations and table arrangements and lovely little things you can't live without.
Next door is an Italian Bistro where we had a wonderful lunch of pasta. I ordered Butternut Squash Ravioli's. Oh my - so delicious!
We sat by the window and caught up on our busy lives.
Every moment I get to spend with my children is precious!
Next we browsed the many antique and gift shops, looking for treasures.
We had so much fun laughing at the curiosities.
Notice the frightened look!
I don't think this little Santa will be coming home with us.
We did have a great time!
I spotted these vintage hanging lamps and wanted to take them all home. But we were there to shop for Christmas....sigh!
We had a wonderful day together, and it ended too soon.
But on the way to our vehicles, we had one last laugh! What the ?????
Hey, it's all in the Christmas Spirit!
I hope you are having a little fun in the Spirit of Christmas!
