One more post before we start England (which will indeed be interrupted more than once for holiday cheer!). It is now December but we hit the Northville Greens Market in November and it is my official start to the holiday season! My friend Jan and I always head down to this charming town to get our Christmas wreaths. They are always plain and we jazz them up later!

Loads of pretty, loads of fun. Let's hear it for Frosty!
