Samuel. Samuel is a local carpenter who often does odd jobs for the owners of the Bethlehem Inn. Tonight he has been called to perform a repair to the stable roof. He knows he will need a safety rope and a board to patch the hole, so he brings these along. As he approaches the stable he sees many people gathering, and a strange glow coming from within. The sight almost makes him drop the rope.
The first Christmas disaster! Wind did this, not Teddy.
A new wreath I made for my daughter to hang at work.
A package arrived.
If anyone is interested in handmade old fashioned candy canes you can order them from: www.zoeschocolate.com The flavors are wonderful. I am going to be listing a giveaway tomorrow and one of these will be included in it.
On the way to Skaneateles we finally found some snow.
There is Christmas cheer everywhere in this town.
This is a perfect Christmas village.
The shops are all glittering.
You can take horse drawn carriage rides through the town.
And the library is passing out hot chocolate. Check out that cute puppy butt!
There are carolers on the corners.
And these Dickens cutouts are scattered about .
All of the windows are decorated.
This building was a theater in the 1800's.
The Sherwood Inns porch is open for dinner.
A fire is welcoming in the lobby.
They have Christmas dioramas decorating the lobby, all with different scenes.
A huge Christmas tree is decorated with large gingerbread cookies.
Every year at the end of the pier, out across the wooden planks holding steady above the swirling shoals, the village sets a tree, wraps it 'round with lights for young and old, family and friends, visitors strolling hand in hand.
The gazebo is decorated.
A red kettle Santa.
*Stop back tomorrow to see the Dickens people in all their splendor.
