I love parades, no doubt about it. This year the Sisters Christmas parade was on my birthday, so off we went to this adorable little town for it's short and sweet parade. I wouldn't have it any other way.
This girl seems to be always plugged in these days!
There are lots and lots of animals in this one and nary a marching band. I do love to see all the variety of beasts though. Llamas, dogs,
Ryan and Scrabble,
the occasional beautiful vintage truck.
and the big man himself! Santa came into town in style.
After the parade, this is my favorite place to step in for a coffee. They really do it up for Christmas!
I had a marvelous time doing my part for Small Business Saturday. I found some interesting rustic fabric at the Stitchin' Post that I can't wait to try and some beautiful vintage buttons at the antique shops. Later, we had a delicious dinner, presents and gingerbread cake at my parents' house. My mom also really knows how to decorate for the holidays, so those photos will show up here soon. The owl portrait is a gift from my sister!
It was a very good day. Thanks for all the nice birthday wishes. Happy Sunday to you!
PS: Don't forget to comment on the previous post to enter the contest for one of my handmade ornaments.
PPS: All the photos here were made with my iPhone! I had no idea this little gem would be so much fun to take photos with. I got a phone, computer and pocket camera all in one. Thanks Mark!
