Getting in the Spirit

Our Thanksgiving weekend was a terrific one and I'm eager to fill you in -- except that we're still having it! So, before I do, a little more from Gardenviews and town of Northville to put you in the holiday mood! (Cue the music)


This window made me want to buy a pink tree! (I refrained!)


The shop had fun, creative windows....


 .... and pretty decorations...


.... so I did a selfie! 

This was a more traditional window.  


And so was this!

 

 And I loved the Santa and sheep in this display.

But I tend to be on the more woodland/rustic side of things.

This guy almost made it home with me!

My tree is too small for the huge wicker bells, but I liked them!

This was an elegant tree for those wanting a softer pink look.

Here's a closer look.

But I'm all for the whimsy...


...and the magic!

 

 And I can't resist a good angel. I might have to try my hand at doing one like this!

 In the mood yet? Or overloaded too soon? 


 Because it's almost time to deck the halls!

Although I like the look of the pink trees especially that subtle pink one I am more about sticking with tradition. I like the unique ornaments that my husband and I have collected throughout the years. You certainly got some wonderful Christmasy shots.

Beautiful!

They are all pretty in their own way, but I'm with you on the whimsical tree decor. The other white tree with the pink flowers and bulbs takes my breath away though.

Salty Pumpkin Studio said...

All pretty and festive!
Glass ornaments melt my heart.

Bill said...

Some beautiful decorations there. Enjoy getting ready for the season, Jeanie.

This post was a drooler Jeanie. What is it about Christmas trees and holiday decor that makes me (also) want to keep buying them I'm with you about the pink tree. We have a Victorian home in the center of my town, not a huge house, but still it had 5 long windows in the front, 3 upstairs and 2 downstairs. The people who live in it put up a different tree in each window. I would love to do that. Thanks for sharing this fun post. Glad you're having a great holiday weekend also. Hugs-Erika

Pom Pom said...

Hi Jeanie! Oh, I want one (or ten!) of those fuzzy sheep! I love the pink, too, but I am resisting buying another tree. Happy Advent!

Such a lovely post.
I enjoyed all of your photographs, it's certainly looking nice and Christmassy :)

All the best Jan

DUTA said...

I like Santa's figure. I enjoy the various ways he's portrayed , and of course, his carrying a bag with gifts for children.

Rita said...

I did play the music! I am really ready for it this year for some reason. Maybe just need the spirit and joy. :) :)
The colored trees remind me of the late 50s and early 60s when colored flocked trees were so popular--LOL!

I so love Christmas and loved perusing those wonderful displays! TFs Janice

William Kendall said...

I like that little fox.

ashok said...

Lovely colorful post

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I decorate every room in my house with trees, so this really spoke to me. Although I really enjoyed the angel and Santas, I was most impressed with the various trees you showed. How awesome. And I'm impressed you resisted buying some of those ornaments.



Iris Flavia said...

You´re so strong! The pink tree sure screams "buy me!!!!"
The Aussies have upside-down (under) trees and sadly(?) I was as strong as you. Now I would love to have such a tree here...

Linda P said...

We haven't had a chance to window gaze so thank you for taking me along to look at the decorated shop windows in your town. Lovely Christmas themes are on display. I trust that you had a happy Thanksgiving weekend.

Valerie-Jael said...

Wonderful pictures, glad you enjoyed Thanksgiving! Have a great week, hugs,Valerie

The everyday joys of life will suffice for me, Jeanie, and I will give more than a passing thought to the people of Ukraine literally freezing in the dark.

Pamela said...

So many types of decorations. I tend toward the simple handmade ornaments in my home but I do like looking at all kinds.

Rita C at Panoply said...

I'm definitely in the mood! I loved window shopping with you, Jeanie! The traditional vignettes tou pointed out are my favorites!

Veronica Lee said...

Loved your fun and festive post, Jeanie.

And I enjoyed all your delightful photos. 🧑🧑🧑

Hugs and blessings πŸ’

Mr fox will be thrilled to live chez vous!

shoreacres said...

Honestly? All of that is just too, too much. I know you enjoy it, so I'm glad the season of decorated shops has rolled around for you, but a simple tree decorated with meaningful ornaments does just fine for me. A pink Christmas tree? Ghastly!

crackercrumblife said...

These are all so pretty!!! I love all of it, the whimsy and the pink tree and the traditional scenes too.

And I have a little fox like that! So cute!

Nancy said...

I'm in the Christmas Mood! I love it all! I'm a traditional Christmas Gal. I love the reds, the greens and all the twinkling lights!

I enjoyed seeing all the Christmas you just shared. How fun!

Enjoy your decorating!

Hena Tayeb said...

As fun as the pink tree is I agree with sticking with the traditional and then let the beauty of the ornaments shine.

Joanne Huffman said...

I've just started decorating - love seeing windows and photos of how people decorate.

Lisa from Lisa's Yarns said...

Thanks for sharing! I love love love seeing holiday decorations! They make me so happy. Our house is quite simply decorated but I love seeing more elaborate decor at stores and others' homes!

Can't wait to hear about your weekend!

Anvilcloud said...

Looks great. I am reminded of the Christmas store in Frankenmuth and how magical it was a to visit one summer. And now I am also reminded of the chicken (Zenders?). It may have been 30-35 years since I was there, and I wonder if Frankenmuth is still the same.

Red Rose Alley said...

Oh, this town looks so charming, Jeanie. I was drawn to the traditional window, as much of my Christmas decor is traditional from years past. I also loved the whimsical decorations shown here, as I have lots of whimsical stuff around the house too. Such a cute photo of the boys putting the ornaments on the tree. Yes, it's a magical season for sure. I'm looking forward to seeing YOUR holiday decor around the house. You have some wonderful creative ideas as well.

Sandi Magle said...

Great Share, lots of lovely color and the traditional windows were superb!

Marilyn Miller said...

What wonderful ideas.
I hope you are having some festive times with family and decorating.
What fun.
Now I must go finish my tree right this very moment.

Klaudia Zuberska said...

Beautiful, very atmospheric photos :) I love Christmas, these decorations make me feel happy :) I haven't seen a pink Christmas tree yet ^^ Beautiful!
Greetings from Poland!

Carola Bartz said...

I could easily resist buying any of these things (except for the little fox perhaps, s/he's darn cute). Pink trees? Who came up with that?

Divers and Sundry said...

I love all those trees. I can speak well of a pink tree, as I bought a little 2' pink tree at an antique mall and love it. It has silver balls and tinsel and makes me smile whenever I see it.

Deck the Halls season is here :)

The Joy of Home with Martha Ellen said...

How fun, Jeanie. So many different styles to view! The last photo of the boys is darling! Have a great week.

Thelma said...

Nice trees, especially the pink ones. Great window decorations. Have a good week.

Elizabeth Varadan, Author said...

Christmas is my favorite holiday, and the days leading up to it are my favorite time of the year. These were great shots. I've seen pink and purple Xmas trees in the windows here in Braga, too. But, like you, refrain . . . I think they look better in shop windows than they would in the livingroom.

R's Rue said...

So beautiful.

Pam Richardson said...

Jeanie, I love seeing the windows adorned for Christmas. Butch and I have made several trips to New York City in early December, and one my my favorite things were the amazing window displays. Macy’s and Lord and Taylor were always my favorites. Thank you for sharing the magic!

DVArtist said...

I don't celebrate Christmas, but I do enjy seeing how people decorate and get so exceitd about. There are some very pretty displays. Have a great day.

Polly said...

Beautiful photos Jeanie. Years ago my daughter had a white tree with some large fluffy pink baubles on it, it looked lovely. I plan to get the Christmas decorations down from the loft this weekend. I think I will get a real tree this year.

It's me said...

Good luck….no Christmas tree for me…I never done that in my home….but I make a little Christmas in my hone always…I do not like much decorations…..enjoy December love from me and Leaf πŸ€πŸΎπŸŽ„πŸ€πŸ’—

Beautiful Christmas trees and decorations. Cute selfie. Wonderful photos.
Take care, enjoy your day!

Carol @Comfort Spring Station said...

Northville is really a fun town. I went there often for seasonal fun. Great photos Jeanie - I'm glad you enjoyed Thanksgiving and the Christmas decor.

DeniseinVA said...

It all looks fantastic and I enjoyed each photo very much! Thank you Jeanie :)

Carol @ The Red Painted Cottage said...

Such beautiful eye-candy! That’s exactly why I prefer small town shopping and shopping at the smaller stores vs the malls and big box stores. That angel is lovely.

Linda @ Life and Linda said...

Lover this Jeanie. I adore Christmas decor. So many pretty decor items to admire. I am featuring your post at Love Your Creativity. Happy Holidays.
