'Pringles'? Is this 'Pringles'? Oh wow, how great this is! ^^ And I agree with christmasjingles, I haven't also expected 'Pringles' would look something like this ever.

3) See a snowglobe you like?
(They are all musical, with different Christmas songs available.)




4) Triple trees greet visitors at the north entrance.

They would look wonderful on any Christmas table. I just wish that my camera would have taken a brighter picture!

I made a wonderful discovery today. Hartman's (Independent Grocer), which is a block away from my apartment has done away with their Halloween decorations and are preparing for Christmas. Being so close, I was in the yesterday afternoon and looked at their "seasonal" section, which appeared to have been moved around a little. Items were missing. I thought "could they be preparing for Christmas?!" ...and they are!! Here are two photos from Hartman's today. I will take more soon. And then another from the Royal Oak, which is a local bar franchise throughout Ottawa.







I think I need to clean the lens on my blackberry. That may help brighten some photos. Christmas is blossoming in Ottawa. I can't wait to return to the Rideau Centre on Saturday!

HEY!

Christmas decorations are going up at Crabtree!!


1) Forest of small trees ready for harvesting and replanting!




2) Workers preparing some of the larger trees for installation in Santa's village.




3) Oooo!
Wonder what's in those boxes?

Continuing at Crabtree:


4) Some of the small trees already transplanted!
(Note the 40th anniversary signs. Crabtree was opened in 1972. I watched it being built!)




5) Garland grove, also ready for harvest!




6) Another view:
