I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and subsequent weekend! We ventured out briefly on Friday afternoon to a few of the local stores here in town to see if there was anything worth hanging on our tree this year, but came home empty handed and a bit disappointed. We spent the remainder of the afternoon munching on leftovers and relaxing on the couch.
Autumn hangs on, while signs of the upcoming Winter holidays begin to shine.
Being one who is discontent to sit around for very long, Saturday was a different story. Sure, there was some lazing about in the morning, but later in the afternoon we pulled on our sweaters and went downtown for some dinner, walking and browsing. The weather here is strange to me, I'm used to the weekend after Thanksgiving being winter coat cold, but it was only slightly too chilly for a sweater to keep me toasty even with the sun down. Weird weather aside, we peeked and poked into quite a few shops, stopped for hot chocolate for Joe and a Chai Tea for me at the local tea bar and took photos of some of the festive lights and displays we encountered.
Main Street Greenville, SC is quite different from the glitz and glamor of 5th Avenue, NYC at this time of year, but it sated my sparkle fever quite well.
Our tree is up and we'll be decking it out this week. I realized though that aside from the ornaments for my tree, I have pathetically few Yule decorations. In total, I have a desktop tree, a small light up snowman, a few string of lights, a wee ceramic snow couple I painted a few years back, a ceramic gift box and two candy tins. I'm going to have to get crafty with my Yule decorations, but am sort of stumped on what to make. Any suggestions at all would be greatly appreciated!
