It seems impossible to believe that in less than one week......Thanksgiving will have come and gone!! It kinda scares me as to all I have to accomplish in just a few short days to be ready for the feast !
However, while I love Thanksgiving. . .I have to admit that I REALLY love Christmas!! I'm so glad I have a few friends who do, too, because it's so much fun heading to the area antique malls and small shops for their wonderful Christmas Open Houses!
Among the special shops we enjoy visiting during this time of the year are the ones located in Greenwood, MO. It's an annual tradition to head there on the first day of their open houses and enjoy a little lunch together in the tea room located in the Greenwood Antique Mall.
Last weekend a friend and I had planned on visiting Des Moines, IA, for a "junk show" called JUNK JUBILEE JINGLES. However, the threat of bad weather kept us from making the trip. So, in order to get our "junk fix", we spent Thursday and Friday hitting wonderful antique shops in Olathe, KS and Parkville, MO!
We also shared a couple of meals, including a delicious pizza and salad at Spin Pizza in Olathe!
I didn't buy a lot of treasures, but did love the few items I brought home. A couple of great old baskets, a couple of vintage Christmas lights, a vintage tree skirt, a silver chafing dish and a beautiful silver garland were my "finds"!
THE STONE RABBIT loves Christmas, too. He was especially pleased with this new Santa. I think Santa seems very happy with his new found bunny friend as well!
