After Thanksgiving!

26 Nov


Every year it seems as if we’ve reached new heights in the level of what we are capable of consuming as a nation whether it’s eating until we can’t move or shopping from 5 in the morning for those holiday bargains in any given town. I don’t like shopping malls so rarely do I find myself among those people willing to claw each other’s eyes out all in order to get the latest gadget or whatnot at a bargain price. I’m too old for that anyway.


This year since my daughter was doing an art show in the historic district of my hometown, I wandered about meeting quite a few new crafters that I’ll proudly support any time. It’s crucial to lend our encouragement to those artists that make unique pieces WalMart will never be able to replace. A few of these chains have been caught stealing ideas and ended up in court but that’s for another topic.


Today has been necessary to chill out since I’ve done way too much these past few days. The photos are ones that I took of some Christmas tree ornaments along the way. Much more to post but it will have to wait.

    Cute! I really love ornaments. Smaltzy as it is, the whole magic of Christmas really does ir for me visually! I like to make most of my gifts though and avoid the consumer debt part.

    It’s nice to have you back, Natural High.

    I love the visuals of Christmas too but the malls always cause me to break out in a cold sweat. I use to have my kids make all their gifts which they thought was so uncool at the time.
