Things continue to get more and more Christmassy around here!

1) Artificial trees for sale at Wal-Mart.


2) Parking lot banner at a different, outdoor shopping center.


3) and 4) Pottery Barn at the mall has appealing decorations in their front window and inside the store. They always have something nice each year.




5) Belks takes advantage of large mirrors lining the escalator shaft by hanging wreaths there. There were others, and the depth provided by the mirrors reflecting each other, made for many images.

A few extra photos I took at the Valley:

1) and 2) Close-ups of the decorated tree on Santa's giant sleigh used as a backdrop for the kids when they pose for photos with the big guy.




3) Center court giant tree taken from the second floor looking down.


4) Center court tree taken in the mall in the evening. The stars above the tree are projected there and they move around.


5) Ah! A decorated parking lot street lamp. Love greenery and bows on lamps and wrought iron. So classy!

A few more I took recently:

1) Better shot of the wreath attached to the mirror over the escalator in Belks, showing the reflection effect.


2) Entrance sign for a different shopping center.


3) Appealing holiday decor in a mall shop, set up like an old hardware store with wooden walls and floors. Nice backdrop for Christmas decorations!

From our trip to Logan's Trading Post yesterday. Always such a Christmassy place to go to eat and get our poinsettia!

1) The shop and restaurant is an old train station.


2) through 4) Christmas as far as the eye can see!

5) Just a small sample of the poinsettia choices in Logan's nursery.


6) Greenery options abound outside too, where they sell Christmas trees.


7) Interior-lit ornaments for the mantle!
(Cardinals are quite popular here. It is the NC state bird.)
