A sweet remembrance

Have you ever thought about buying something Christmasy when you are on vacation, even in the middle of the summer?  I have heard of people doing this and I think it's a great idea.  Lots of small souvenirs would make interesting ornaments -- or you could visit a Christmas shop or the Christmas corner of a gift shop and find something suitable.  It need not be an ornament; it could be a candle, coasters, a tea towel, or something else.

Several years ago we visited our daughter and family in the fall.  We visited a lovely country shop called The Two Olde Crows in Elko, Nevada.  They happened to be having a Christmas sale -- I believe they called it a Christmas Gathering -- and served hot cider and treats.  So much fun!

I purchased a couple of tea towels -- one for harvest and one for Christmas -- and enjoy using them in seasonal decorating.  I'm sharing the Christmas one with you at the top of the post.  Isn't it sweet?  A lovely remembrance of one of our visits with loved ones out west.


  1. I think it's a great idea to purchase things for Christmas throughout the year, then all your decorations would each hold a special memory. Enjoyed the read! Have a great weekend!

  2. Thanks, Tori! Yes, I love to buy seasonal items in our travels, whether in Christmas shops, gift shops, clearance corners or thrift stores. It's so much fun to use them and have a special memory come to mind.

    Thanks for visit, and you have a great weekend too!


Thanks so much for stopping by to visit my kitchen table! I love company here in my kitchen, so be sure to leave a comment so I'll know you've visited! I'll answer your questions and comments here on the blog unless you request otherwise.
