NaBloPoMo and Travel Theme: Colourful Comforts

NaBloPoMo and Travel Theme: Colourful Comforts

It was wet and horrible outdoors today but I made a quick stop into our local gift shop, Apples & Pears, and was confronted by all the wonderful colours and scents of Christmas! I found one or two ideas for presents but mostly I just enjoyed browsing in such a comforting atmosphere.

Twelve Day’s ‘Til Christmas: On The Eleventh Day

Twelve Day's 'Til Christmas: On The Eleventh Day
On the eleventh day of Christmas, whatever did I see?
Eleven gifts need wrapping!
Ten cats-a-waiting,
Nine lady dancers,
Eight cows for milking,
Seven ducks-a-swimming,
Six troopers trooping,
FIVE GOLD COINS!
Four friends at Wisley,
Three kids and Chitty,
Two pipers playing
AND
A Santa with a rabbit on his knee!

These wrapping decorations were in my local gift shop, Apples & Pears. Just a few more gifts to wrap and I’m all set! Are you all ready for Christmas? Reduce your stress levels with a happy song 😉

Weekly Photo Challenge: Community

On the first day of Christmas whatever did I see? A Santa with a rabbit on his knee!

This rather marvellous Father Christmas, in the traditional green garb, is part of the window display in my local village gift shop, Apples & Pears.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Let There Be Light!

I’ve been in my local gift shop, Apples & Pears, today looking for Christmas inspiration. There’s plenty of it in there too!

I couldn’t resist photographing the lovely lights and shadows reflecting from this stylish, star decoration to share with you all today 🙂

After such lovely feedback from yesterday’s post I thought I’d treat you all to a golden bokeh to say thanks 🙂

My local gift shop has been re-branded as Apples & Pears and is an absolute treasure trove of shiny, pretty things! They are kind enough to let me photograph some of their gifts from time to time.

I really enjoy finding little, abstract gems in the details of ornaments. Hope you like them too!
