Cape Cod at Christmas

Of course I couldn't go back home to Winston-Salem, without visiting Cape Cod.  Yesterday my friend Joyce and I had a Christmas get together and drove to the Cape.  
 
Sandwich is one of my favorite towns and Dunbar's Tea Room is a wonderful place to have tea and lunch.  Of course there was a fireplace in the corner of the room lit, and the place was decorated so lovely for the Holidays.   Here is some Christmas music, with a roaring fire in the fireplace crackling as you listen to some really pretty songs.


 Joyce and I visited the gift shop and tea bar when we were finished with lunch.
Lots of teas and teapots galore.
 Sandwich Holly Days has some lovely events for Christmas.

 A drive to Dennis, allowed us to visit an old friend Melissa, who owns and operates the most gorgeous little shop called Scout Vintage.

Melissa's shop is filled with very unusual new and Vintage finds.  Like this bundle of Vintage French threads, used to create tassels.  She found these in the South of France last October.
 She loves to go to France and find the most amazing things to fill her shop.  You can have a glimpse of window shopping at Vintage Scout on Melissa's Facebook page.
The town of Sandwich is decorated with some pretty creative lighting at Christmas. Each place has it's own unique lighting display depicting the theme of their shop or museum.  Finally, on the way back home, we stopped at Titcomb's book shop to buy a few last minute Christmas presents.
It was such a fun day, and we made some lovely Christmas memories.

Today is day 23 of the Christmas countdown.  Please take home this artwork as my gift for you for stopping by.
