So Much to See

I know someone who has spent the last few days in NYC. It must be quite the sight this time of year with the store windows decorated and people bustling about town doing holiday tasks. I might have to add seeing NYC during December to my ‘someday’ list.

For now, there is a lot to see right here where I live. Here are three photos. The first is my favorite. I saw this porch today and thought it was a lovely, warm and welcoming sight. I just might have to borrow this idea. I love these lanterns. And I do have a porch. Hm-m-m-m.

This is our State Christmas tree on the grounds of the State Capitol.


If you were standing where I was and turned 180°, this is what you would see:

the newly reopened main street downtown Raleigh. With the lights in the trees and the wreaths and bows on the lampposts, it is really beautiful this time of year.


  1. Love those lanterns. To me they just speak southern charm. Raleigh looks beautiful.

  2. Beautiful photos, I think the lanterns are a lovely idea.

  5. Hi Ginger! I live in a small town now... the decorations are minimal at best.... when I lived in chicago we would go and look at all the lights in the big city, it was amazing! All the stores were lit up and had christmas themed scenes and tons of people and the hustle and bustle with a chill in the air...I loved it!!! I miss those days!!! oh well, I'll have to make due with what our town does have to offer....ugh!

  6. Beautiful!! I love this time of year! We are having too much rain to really be able to get out and see the lights!! Thank you for sharing yours!

    I am glad there are some kindred spirits out there. And you like the lanterns too. That's all the endorsement I need! Add it to the list of things to be on the lookout for. Looking at lights is one of our holiday adventures. Thank you for taking a peek at these photos!
