Finally... I had to bring my car in this morning. After it was all ready, I took a quick drive to Home Depot. I needed to purchase a AVS pipe, but I made sure to visit their Christmas section prior...

These signs were nice. I wish I had somewhere to put them:


Santa is always welcome at my house!:


Artificial Trees looked real nice! ...I prefer the real thing, but I still enjoy marvelling at these, too:

I really enjoyed the outdoor figures they had on display. Despite it not being entirely Christmas-oriented, the miniature Eiffel Tower really caught my eye:


Reindeer and Santa's sleigh (it's on the right):


More figures, only less reliant on lights:

And, finally... I really think this lamppost and banner would look great in front of every house. In fact, you could probably even hang a beautiful wreath on it, too!:


That is all i have for now. Hopefully I will get out to photograph more this weekend. After all, it will be the final weekend before the beginning of the Christmas Season!

Belks is now completely decorated!

The following 9 photos are all from there.



1) These overhead decorations have been used for several years now, but they are good ones!




2) Close-up.




3) These manikins have lost their heads over Christmas!

Mirror series.


4) Belks takes advantage of the mirrors along the escalator shaft to enhance their decorations.




5) View from opposite side.




6) Took this one while riding up the escalator.

Borders.


7) Topping draws holiday attention to this Ralph Lauren sign.




8) Combination of greenery, wreath and a red background impart a nice Christmas feel!




9) Bows on the corners are a nice final touch to this holiday border.
