Decorating for Christmas at Leola's

The leaves are falling like crazy here & I wanted to show one of the trees in our front yard. The trees are absolutely gorgeous but poor Mike is going to have quite a job cleaning the leaves up this weekend. Sorry, I can't help -- I have to work at Leola's.

We've worked so hard this week but it's really shaping up. We received a big order of candles today in the yummiest fragrances & Jean got in a big order of popcorn. We've totally redone the store & we have one new vendor -- Brenda Beck. She is incredibly talented & loves the lodge look. It's really amazing how everyone in the shop adds a little different dimension to Leola's. This is Kelli's corner cabinet that's loaded with vintage red Christmas.
This is a vintage tall bottlebrush tree in my area.

Sandy's tree is completely covered with "stuff". Most of it isn't what you would normally think of putting on a Christmas tree but is sooooo cute.

Pam brought in all new shirts & jackets. She does such an excellent job in displaying her things.

These are the dress forms that Kelli made wings for. They'll go all across the front of the shop. Jeff hung old wooden slat awnings across the front of the shop & it completely changed the look of the shop.

Debra was still decorating her space so I'll take more of hers tomorrow.

This is Judy's area & her dress form. She always comes up with some amazing things.

Hey Jan, great photos! Can't wait to see the store Thursday night. The "girls" look fabulous with their wings!!! Great job Kelli.
See ya in 12 hours.

I think "the girls" are going to "wow" them. It's going to be a great weekend. Thanks, Debra, for the encouragement. Jan
