Don and I were like a couple of kids in a candy store when we found a French Bakery in the Mall. Glass case after glass case filled with the most wonderful pastries. We chose a ham, bell pepper and cheese on a pastry, a hotdog with sweet mustard in a pastry shell and a yummy little strawberry/kiwi tart.
The top right picture was view from the bakery.
What took us inside was the "MERRY CHRISTMAS" sign in the window. I'm a Merry CHRISTmas kind of person and was happy to see a business using this instead of Happy Holidays.
The French decorations were so cute including this old style bicycle on the counter. Once we were outside, my dearest found a friend. His birthday is next week and he wanted this real bad, but they wouldn't gift wrap and deliver, so I'll look for something else.
This is going to be a NO STRESS Christmas. My package to Jill and family in Oregon is packed and on it's way to Oregon. So now I can enjoy the next couple of weeks, baking and making mom's English Toffee.
A fun shopping trip is planned with my daughters and granddaughters and that should be a lot of fun, and hopefully finish off any gifts that are needed.
I hope you will take time to have some FUN! It's such a joyful season that is turned into a stressful season because we tend to forget that CHRISTmas is a gift to enjoy.
Villa Tea Party tomorrow. I'll take pictures.
