Skip’s Florist & Gift Shop

Winter in central Florida is very mild with blue skies and usually lower humidity. It’s the best time of the year and I want to go somewhere and window shop. I drove down U.S. 19 to Holiday to Skip’s Florist.
The Christmas season is here. The last 6 months have been very stressful for me with several bouts of illness, and I must admit, I’m not as enthused about the holidays as normal. So today I am doing positive affirmations and remembering the reason for the season. Let’s look at positive steps to get the Christmas spirit.
Today I’ll share a little story about a neighbor of mine. Ron lives in a house catty-corner to me. When I moved here over 11 years ago, Ron and his wife were already in residence. I didn’t really get to know them then, but we waved at each other. We were friendly acquaintances but not really friends. My good friend Vickie next door knew them as well as most people on the block. She’s very outgoing while I’m quieter.
This last weekend I was working on my home rearranging art and adding Christmas decorations. My favorite way to decorate for Christmas is with vignettes added to a room. Let’s start with the dining room. Last week I decorated the dining table with a poinsettia topper and my decorated Advent candleholder. Today I’m sharing the updated picture ledge behind the table.
