Out and about.....

While out and about last week, there were some lovely displays.

A tree adorning a favorite restaurant.

Mantle decor in the same restaurant.

Additional decor.

This was my favorite, though.

Beautiful rose bouquet in honor of those 40th birthdays!  

The tree in the bay window where we were seated at the surprise destination for that 40th birthday celebration.

Though Christmas Day has come and gone, it is still a pleasure for me to view trees and other decorations, some of which are still in place.

I've always thought that it is more fun to decorate than to undecorate!


  1. What a lovely place for such a special occasion! I hate to see all the decorations coming down, but I suppose they wouldn't seem so special if we left them up all year. Have a good day, Sister! Love you!

  2. I am with you there. Putting everything away just seems like a big chore. Though I do like it when every thing is all clean afterwards. Have a lovely day Nellie.

  3. It sure is! I'm taking decorations down today. I dread going upstairs to the cold part of the house to get the boxes to put the stuff in them, and carry them back up! BLEH! I think I'll eat the last piece of cheesecake for energy!

  4. I get to skip the undecorating part, since I don't decorate. I do remember dreading getting it out and putting it away... and how much roomier it felt when it was all done.

  5. Thanks Nellie, I love seeing other decorations too. I just think it's so fun. I did take things down in the baths and bedrooms....just the living room to go. What is on the porch can stay all winter. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  6. Hi Nellie , what gorgeous decorations and they make you feel so welcome . I am lucky right now , I have four helpers to help me take down he decorations . I know things was enjoyed by the birthday girls . Thanks for sharing . :)

  7. The Christmas decorations are so pretty. I like a variety of Christmas trees. A friend of my daughter has a lot of decorated trees, each with a theme. I'm crazy about Christmas.
    Happy birthday to your daughters.


  8. It is fun to see all the different ways people decorate their Christmas trees.

  9. I want to go to that restaurant. What time shall I be ready?


    P.S. You'll pick me up, right?

  10. Definitely more fun to decorate. I'm not looking forward to putting everything away. I'll just need to get my Valentine things out early.

  11. What pretty decorations, Nellie. Sometimes I wish they ALL could just stay up all year round, lol...

    Happy, Healthy New Year to You and Yours Nellie! "See" you next year!!!
