Christmas is coming!
The card shop in town closed for a few days so that the owner could dress the shop for Christmas.
He makes a big deal about printing posters and announcing the opening of the Christmas display.
Here is part of the display. A blue and silver theme.
I have also started thinking about Christmas and have been working on the menu and table decorations for our neighborhood restaurant. I am really delighted with the design so far and hope that they turn out as well as I imagine. While Paolo, Patrizia and I have discussed the menu, I like to wait until much closer to the actual day before printing them. Sometimes they change the menu the day before. So no post about the decorations until then. But Ben and I are both excited that our friends from Canada, Allen and Dinah will be enjoying Christmas lunch with us.
