Christmas shopping on the square

Let's start with a great cup of coffee. Bet we can find some gifts in here too.
If this lamp doesn't make you smile . . .
I spy some mighty good stuff
Treasure alley!
This certainly looks like a good place for a treasure hunt.
How are we supposed to choose? Can't we have them all?
Surely someone can find a place for this
This display looked much better before I bought the center teapot!
Bet we can find something new for the decoration collection.
We could tour Grace Episcopal Church. When the congregation grew too large for the original building, it was moved to the downtown area.
How about dinner at Romeo's Italian - they've restored the old Masonic Building to it's former glory, and the food is great too!
Let's end our fun day with a play at the restored Palace Theatre. The Gift of The Magi - how perfect!


How about some last minute shopping on the square? We can make a day of it starting with coffee at my favorite coffee house. After poking around in some fun little stores, we can tour an historic church, eat dinner at a wonderful restaurant and end the day with a wonderful play at our restored theatre. Hope you enjoy another visit to my little town. Come back as often as you'd like, we love visitors.

Kathy your town is sooo charming! I see more than a thing or two that I want!! I used to have a server like the one you've shown. I sold it back when I had my antique store and of course...nutty collector that I am I wish I'd never sold it! And the colors on the old shutters are so prefect! Will you share where you put your new teapot? I'd love to see it in its new home! Vanna

Good morning Kathy, We just got our lights back on after the ice we had last night. It is a virtual winter wonderland out there. I so agree with you about animals. We are so fortunate our Murphy dog showed up. He was drawn to me right away and is my constant companion. I told dh this morning we are so fortunate to have the 2 dogs we have. I hope all is well with you this beautiful fine day..
hugs ~lynne~
