North Hills series.

Stepping away from Crabtree, we visit another mall in Raleigh. This one, "North Hills", used to be enclosed like Crabtree but they demolished it and rebuilt as an outdoor shopping "village".

1) Nice Christmas greenery on wall lamps at the Renaissance Hotel at North Hills


2) Close-up of one of the lamps


3) The front of the hotel with railing garlands

4 and 5) Beautiful railings with Christmas garlands along an outside walkway.




6) North Hills' main tree lacks Crabtree's nice decorations but it's quite impressive at night lit up, all 40 feet of it!

7 and 8) J.C. Penney's store at North Hills sports these decorations.




9) One more outdoor lamp.
(I'm a sucker for streetlamps and railings decorated with green garlands and red bows!)

I'm nearing the end of my stock of 2010 photos, friends!
Anyone else have some to share before Christmas?

Leftovers:
Two more photos of Belk's nice mirror display.
(Nothing quite like mirrors to multiply the effectiveness of your decorations!)

Serottas in the local strip mall where I grocery shop always has a nice seasonal display!
(The reindeer's head moves up and down.)



One more photo to go, which I will post for Christmas Eve tomorrow!

Closing with my traditional photo of Crabtree's outdoor tree lit up at night.

May you have a restful Christmas Eve and a Wonderful Christmas day tomorrow!
