Christmas in Black and White

Hope you all enjoyed a wonderful and relaxing Thanksgiving!!!
During that time the elves have been busy and Mr and Mrs Klaus have been putting the last touches on the decorations in the anticipation of your arrival.

Christmas in Black and White.....nothing quite captures the nostalgic mood in the same way.

Please go visit Anne Marie at NaDa Farm Life for more Black and White inspirations.
Sorry such a short post.
Mr Claus is tired and needs to go home!!!!

Thank you for showing us your wonderful display ~ would be so lovely to be there.
Mr and Mrs Klaus did a magnificent job of decorating for Christmas. No wonder Mr Klaus was tired with all that work.
Thanks for sharing and I hope that you have time to relax now, for the rest of the weekend

Well, Carole, I think that your shop could rival Harrods in London and even better it. It looks amazing. You've done such a great job. You must have worked so hard to get it looking so wonderful.I wish that I could see it in real life. I hope that you sell lots of things. I'm sure that you will with it loking so good.Did George help you with it or is it just you ?
Please can we have more photographs of it ? XXXX

Carole your pictures are so awesome as always. I LOVE your shop and what I wouldn't give to be able to see it in person! It is wonderful how charming it all looks in black and white. You really must be pooped after all this setting up the shop...but so worth it, as it is amazing girl!!!
