Getting In The Holiday Mood!

We have been in Pennsylvania again and visited my favorite little garden center with household decorative and holiday items.

I took random shots around the inside store area showing the holiday goodies they had spread out everywhere! 

Some of these trees jumped in my shopping basket! 

Ornaments to attract you like candy in a jar!

Loaded with candles, plants, baskets, dishes and more. 

This place is called Terrain.  It was a local garden center in Glenn Mills, PA.  It used to be called Styers.  If you ask any local where to find Terrain they will reply "Oh Styers".  

Little flowering plants for glass terrariums or such.

My daughter was eyeing up the little mini terrariums.  

They are selling amaryllis that are already started and the bulb is encased in wax and they don't need to be watered.  There are two in this center moss arrangement.

This room area usually has dishes, books and foodie items.

I turned around and noticed all those wreaths tucked up there along the edge of the ceiling. 

I'm itching to own one of these big marble cheese boards.  Just don't like the price!  I think I posted that same thought last time I visited here!

This place is just fun to visit and explore.  Even if you only walked out with a $3.00 ornament you'd be happy having visited.

My daughter feeling crazed with all the choices!  LOL.... 

As we were walking back out I tried to capture a picture of this area.  A frosty winter wonderland of trees, lights, and ornaments. 

Wagon carts loaded with wreaths.  It's all about the presentation- everything seems so much more engaging with how they do it!

Dan loved this wreath. Probably should've bought it. They had baskets full of winterberry in a few areas.  I wanted some but I was concerned with my cats back home getting into them so I passed.

A very old sleigh....

The smell of campfire wood burning in the center area of some Christmas trees.

Those glass cylinders have more of those special amaryllis bulbs sealed in wax.
Great gift item! 

I wanted to buy a poinsettia but with having to travel so far back home I decided to pass.  I loved the rosemary topiaries too! 

I loved these crate displays.  

We actually came all this way to witness our grandson's Christening.  Our daughter and the brother of our daughter in-law were asked to be the Godparents.  There were seven babies being baptized- an it all went so nicely. 
It was a wonderful day! 

I can't wait to get my holiday decorating started! 

I will be joining the following blog parties:
