Appetizers then Dessert!!

While shopping at my favorite place, Sickles Market,  the other day, 
I made my way over to the Greenhouse section, and boy did I get a wonderful surprise!!

 Being a customer of Sickles for over 20 years, I was certainly familiar with their Christmas Dept. and Displays. I  have been buying antique ornaments for the past several years, and have not really looked at any of the newer ornaments. I hadn't realized all the wonderful new varieties now available until I walked through those doors!! OMG!! 
A girl could go crazy broke!!

I felt like I was at a cocktail party!!
I started off with some Wine, Cheese and Bread!!









  OR MAYBE A SCOTCH on the ROCKS!!


After the Appetizers, I strolled on over to the 
DESSERT SECTION!!
HMMMM!!! 
CHAMPAGNE and TRUFFLES ANYONE!!





ESPRESSO and TIRAMISU...


SOME DECADENT CHOCOLATE CAKE



 BLUEBERRY PIE!!

Aren't they so cool! I couldn't believe it!! They look soooo real!! 
Now if that wasn't enough, I looked over and I couldn't believe it!!
Sickles is now carrying Wendy Addison Ornaments!! 
I usually have to go to Tinsel Trading in NY for these!!
This was certainly my lucky day!!! 





IF YOU LOOKING FOR A SPECIAL CHRISTMAS TYPE OF CHRISTMAS ORNAMENT THIS YEAR, YOU SHOULD STOP IN AND TAKE A LOOK AT THEIR SELECTION. THEY HAVE JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING YOU COULD THINK OF... I JUST COULD NOT STOP LOOKING AT ALL THE WONDERFUL TREE'S THEY HAD SET UP... 
EACH WITH A DIFFERENT THEME!!
  CHECK THIS WHITE TREE OUT!! 





HOW COULD YOU NOT HAVE A 
HAPPY FACE AFTER THAT!! 
Well, how about a tree with Asian inspired ornaments!!!






 There were so many others.. an UPSIDE DOWN TREE, A SEASIDE THEMED TREE, A HUGE assortment of PETS, and just about anything else you can think of..




I absolutely love Sickles Market!! As I mentioned, I have been shopping there for over 20 years, 
it is such a wonderful experience every time I go!! 


They always have such a festive display of decorative 
items for the home.


I do not know of anywhere else that has such a 
 unique selection of scents for the home!!



Their floral dept. has the freshest and most beautiful selection of  flowers. They also do some pretty spectacular centerpieces. 

Thank you Sickles for providing me a wonderful shopping experience for the past 20 years!

Hello, Cheryl
Squeal!!!
The parcel came with your sweet 'Pay it Forward' goodies. I am so delighted with the beautifully created Victorian hanging cone...such sweet embellishments and I love the vintage lace cotton ribbon (I'll call it that for now) And the felt Santa Boot is decorated so sweetly and thank you for the candy cane!
Who knows...maybe I'll surprise you at some point with some goodies too. I did enjoy playing the Pay it Forward game and had been fast friends with a gal in England, so I made her a paper clay teddy bear and glued it securely to a vintage children's wooden alphabet block. My friend's name was Denise so the block had a big 'D' on it. She was thrilled, but alas, this past August she passed away due to an allergic reaction she had grown up with. I posted photos on my blog where she and her husband were living at the time.
Please come to my blog! I just became a follower after all this time! Silly me!
Thank you so very much again. And I know of a couple of more bloggers who had the bad flooding in New Jersey too. It didn't sound like much fun at all.
I love your blog and the photos you have posted of creations you have made...especially the tiny shadow boxes of special dollies.
Cheers! And have a lovely Holiday!

Oh! One more thought about my friend Denise. She was living at her home in France when she passed away and had just sent me these photos.
I have good memories about her.
Ta, ta!

Cheryl, I love this post, so festive and full of good cheer.
I am just popping by to say...
Thank You and Thank You So Much!! Imagine my sheer delight when I opened your pay it forward package. WOW you sure know how to send a wonderful gift.
I LOVE The Tussy Mussy {I actually ran through the house showing everyone that is home LOL} and the stocking is my absolute favorite ever!!
Wishing you and yours the very best of this season.
