It's About That Time



Thanksgiving is looming before me and yet another holiday tradition is right behind it.  

That's right....dragging out the holiday decor from the depths of the spooky closet, located underneath the staircase.  I think this storefront has the right idea.  Minimal, yet classic, all the while allowing the gas pump to take center stage. 

Gas pumps really rule my world here lately.

  1. That looks like a pickers paradise!!

    Our decorations are going to be minimal this year. Our newest cat, Vinny, gets into everything. I actually fear for the tree this year and won't be putting out my collectible Nativity pieces or my Santa collection. At least it will be easier to take down and put away after New Year's Day.
