Take Three Thursday - It's Beginning

In an effort to notice more of the ordinary in my life, I have decided to share what I have noticed this week in Take Three Thursday.   The idea is to take photos that are linked some how; by theme, by colour, by date, by moment,  by points of view. There is no formal link in but please feel free to join in. What have you noticed this week? 

Have a peek at what others have found this week:

Christmas outdoor arrangements appearing in all the stores either in the pieces you need to make yourself or already put together.  These were at a local grocery store ...

  1. Happy Thanksgiving :) Those Christmas hangings are delightful! All I've seen at our grocery so far are wreaths. We'll probably get one of those the next time we're there and put it on our front door. But I'll keep my eye out for something like the pieces in your photos. I have just the place for it.

    1. Thanks for the visit. There are SO many clubs & organizations all creating planters, urns, wreaths & pots we are certainly spoiled for choice. I usually make up a small one for the front of the house, so I should get busy before the pots freeze solid & I cannot get any thing stuck in! Hope your Thanksgiving is wonderful.

  2. So lovely!

    I pulled out some fake greenery this week & am hoping to make a little something new for the front door over the weekend.

    1. I'm sure once Thanksgiving is over, there will be lots of choice for your wreath creation. I have been seeing a lot of tear drop wreaths, which I quite like, mine is circular & fake greens, it will survive the dry winds although real evergreens have such a wonderful fragrance.

  3. Christmas greens are everywhere here, too! Now that Thanksgiving is here, I'm ready to think about them. Not going anywhere near a mall this weekend, but I do expect to go to the garden store. We'll be decorating this weekend, even though Advent starts a week later this year.

    1. I agree, the malls & shopping centres are crazy this weekend, while we had our Thanksgiving in October, the American Black Friday sales are insane even here. The school boards now time their PD days to work in having Black Friday off. Crazy.

  4. Outdoor Christmas decorations have been visible in London for a good few weeks, and I've noticed that the Christmas tree sellers near TBC's school are in the process of setting up ...

    1. I've seen a few places with pre-cut trees on display. Very expensive for the real trees this year because of the drought in 2008, many Christmas tree farmers did not plant, so there's fewer trees this year. I really enjoy walking through the tree lots just for the fragrance.

  5. Lovely decs, and quite unusual. I'm in Ruth's boat ... Christmas has been all over the place here since about mid-October. Gets right on my wick! Some towns and villages are having their lights officially turned on this weekend - but others have already been on for ages. The worst is when they start piping carols days in advance of even Dec 1st - they tunes get stuck in my head and I don't want them there yet! I could rant on but what would be the point! Shut up Ella.

    1. Oh I hear your pain. Today I could have screamed with all this gluttony of Black Friday!! It's so much a rush to the next big thing, in a few weeks, Christmas will be past its prime & the push for New Year's ... no wonder no one seems to enjoy the season or the time. I think there is a song about everything to its time, to its season. I'm off the soap box now.
