Today's the Day

Well it is time to get it done. Time to brave the boisterous, demanding crowds and shop, shop, shop....actually I am hoping that by going out on a Tuesday morning, I can avoid much of said crowd.

I have armed myself with 3 cups of coffee, so the energy is flowing and the purpose is focused! I'm on a mission people!

Don't get me wrong, I love, love, love to shop~as my dear husband can testify:) But I am a wander aimlessly, drifter type shopper, I like to browse and discover little wonders and treasures....which is why I enjoy thrifting so much. Having a list of things I have to locate and purchase makes me CRAZY!!! Throw in bright blinking lights, loud music, throngs of people and jolly ole elves at every corner ringing bells and asking for donations and I transform into a Raving Lunatic!!!

Hummm....the Grinch theme song just started to play in my head...."Your a mean one, Mr. Grinch...." Seriously, I adore Christmas, but Christmas shopping is a whole other animal.

OK, enough of that, on to a completely different subject.....

I have just recently met Wyanne Thompson, a very talented artist. She and her family live on Amelia Island, a beautiful place where my family and I go every June.

She is celebrating the Grand Opening of her gallery with a "Reserve Art Event" on December 7th. You can stop by and congratulate and encourage her by clicking here.
Please pop in and have a look around. Tell her you came by way of the FarmHouse.

Enjoy your day!

I'm a big fan of "list" shopping online! Though I did get caught this year out on Black Friday. Blesings.. Polly

Hey Rhonda: Hope you were successful today while shopping. I've cut my list quite a bit and have done some shopping online. I, too, LOVE Christmas but I hate shopping when I have no idea what I'm shopping for.

Hi Rhonda, love your new holiday header.
Have fun shopping, I haven't started my shopping yet...I think I better get busy.
Your tree is beautiful and what special ornaments all with sweet memories. My tree is nearly finished, everything just seems to going slower for me this year. Linda
