Reflections on a Warm December Day

4 Dec

Temps climbed into the mid-60s here yesterday, which is VERY warm for December. I’m not complaining, mind you. I’m just saying.

When lunchtime rolled around, I decided I should go for a stroll to take advantage of the unseasonably warm weather. So, camera in hand, that’s exactly what I did.

Looking Southeast Down Main Street

I was thinking I’d take pictures of the many very pretty store windows in town. The windows that charm my big socks off as I stroll through town with the dogs every evening.

I wanted to share the very pretty merchandise displays with y’all.

I sort of did that. But then I got so caught up in the cool reflections captured in the windows that the merchandise displays don’t really stand out. So I’ll have to take another stroll one day.

For now, though, I thought you might enjoy seeing some of the images I captured.

I have to stop here to say that the storefront window of this florist enchants me year-round. They do such a great job with their displays. I actually went inside, too, which is where I captured the next few shots.

Note to Hubby… if you are reading this. I would LOVE to have that lamp.  Really. They have two, but I only “need one.” 🙂

 

Jimmie's Market and The Madison Tea Room

 

Black Bear Bistro

 

Shelf Life Home Furnishings

 

Lee's Barber Shop

The Empty Nest

 

Of all the images I captured yesterday, I thing this one of the window at The Empty Nest would make the best Christmas card.

 

Latitudes Fair Trade Store

Kelly Ann's Quilts

 

There was a van parked in front of Kelly Ann’s, which limited my angle severely. But I love the cute simplicity of the display.

 

Sherrie's Stuff

Be Boutique

One of these days I’ll get up enough nerve to go into that store for a much-needed fashion intervention.

The Empty Nest

 

Yes, that store is a repeat, but I just love the way the church and water tower are so clearly reflected. You can still see the display a bit, too.

 

Street Scene

 

The Old Mill House

 

That last shot isn’t a store. It’s “just” a house at the corner of S. Sixth and Main Street. I was very touched to see it decorated for Christmas again this year. Especially since the owner, Bob Rice, passed away a couple of months ago.

Did you enjoy your walk through town with me?

I really will try to capture the store windows another day. They’re awesome.

  1. Thanks for the tour. I loved walking down the street with you. All that work put into those windows sure paid off, they look lovely.

    I liked the reflection ones too. You can see in the window and behind you at the same time. Very cool.

  2. And here’s the part of our program where you tell me California’s turned me into a softie…because it’s only been in the low to mid-60s here…and that feels darn COLD.
