My World #52: The Last Shopping Weekend B4 Christmas

21 Dec

The past weekend was the last shopping weekend before Christmas.  While majority of the population are busy shopping for last minute gifts or grocery shopping for what’s going to be on the table, we were taking it easy.  With 99% of our grocery shopping done and our gift shopping completely done two weeks before, husband and I were able to watch a movie.  We went to see 2012, which I thought shouldn’t have been shown around this season.  It’s not Christmassy enough.  Anyway, after the movies we went window shopping in Ikea and drove to Jack London Square to see the giant Christmas tree. Unfortunately, we didn’t get the memo that there wasn’t any tree this year. I wonder why.  Anyway, I’m sharing with you what I have taken on this drizzly day.

The Christmas Tree at Bay Street in Emeryville where we watched the movie.

I am so loving this new light fixture.

Just looking at the display makes me happy and gives me a lot of ideas about how to fix my own home.

I love this couch.

Happy Happy Holidays to one and all.

    I enjoyed window shopping with you. Great shots and I feel like I was walking around with you except my feet didn’t get tired. Cheers, Carver

    Oh, what fun and colorful shots! I love them! Like Carver, I felt as though I had gone shopping with you, too! But, no, my feet didn’t get tired either!

    Wishing you a wonderful and beautiful holiday season!

    I’m sorry they didn’t have the big tree you were expecting to find, but the tree in your first picture is very beautiful. That is some light fixure you showed in your second picture.
