Today my mom and I shared a girl’s day together. Amid our errands for Christmas preparations, we decided to make a trip to historic Zionsville. It had been a while since we’d been there and we wanted to see the town decked out for Christmas. Apparently so did a third of the Indianapolis population because it was very crowded. Fortunately, we had called ahead for reservations at Serenity Tea House, our favorite place to eat. It was good we had because they were reservation only today they were so busy! We had a nice lunch and we browsed around looking at the shops. One of my favorite stores has opened a new location in Zionsville. It’s bigger than their current place in the mall and they had lovely Christmas decorations. It was nice to visit there. Of course, the highlight of a trip to Zionsville is the Village Yarn Shoppe. They had a really cute window display of a wooden fence in the snow with shawls, scarfs, hats, and cowls draped on it. The reflection on the window prevented a good picture, but it was fun to look at. Inspired by the frigid temperatures we find ourselves enduring (before winter has even officially arrived, I might add), I bought a couple skeins of yarn which will be converted to cowls while on my Christmas trip to Texas. Then when I return home, I will be armed with soft, warm alpaca snuggled against the neck. Oh winter you’ve met your match… I won’t even feel your stinging fingers or icy breath. But I digress, plenty of time to plot against winter in the coming weeks. Today we are focusing on the lovely decorations that graced Zionsville. Here are some pictures that I hope you enjoy. So beautiful, with a fresh blanket of snow to make everything sparkle.
Blessings to you,
