WREATHES
FOR THE HOLIDAYS

One of my favorite traditions
at Christmas time.

A symbol of celebration,
and welcome.

Wreathes represent continuity,
and were worn as crowns
in ancient times.

So many creative ways
to salute the season.

DID YOU KNOW?

There are shops that sell
Christmas decorations,
ornaments, lights, candies,
collectibles, antiques,
and nothing else?

All year round.
In almost every city
and tourist destination
around the world?

Villages, stores, 
shops, emporiums.

Happy Holidays.
(Bring your wallet.)

JOY STINGER
LOVES CHRISTMAS

A visit to Joy Stinger's
(famous local bee keeper)
is a celebration of an
old fashioned Christmas!

I love stopping by

and her "over the top"
holiday decorations!
