Red Bank looks like a fun place to shop, Susan. It's always so pleasing to see stores decorated beautifully for the holidays. I love the gingerbread house and all the Christmas trees :)


What a lovely day, the store looks like a great place to find some treats. I lov ethe snake charmer basket too. The Christmas tree is gorgeous, wonderful photos.

Looks like such wonderful places to shop. I prefer the smaller shops! The trees are so pretty!


The Dublin House is beautiful with all the twinkling lights on the tree! It would be hard not to have the Christmas spirit, looks like a lovely place to shop!

The stores look like lovely places to shop. Thanks for letting us peek in the windows and on shelves with you.


So many pretty and festive sights. The Christmas season is upon us! :)


Oh what pretty trees! I love those beautiful Tuscan dishes, too! Hope your Thanksgiving was happy, Sue! xoxo


Susan, thanks for sharing these lovely shops on your walk.

That is so cool! I choose to put up a tree branch this year since that is the Christmas tree that our family back in the Philippines used to have. Kind of reminiscing the happy days when both my parents are still alive and when me and my siblings are excited to open the stockings ^_^

How I would love to visit your little town! Your photos are beautiful. I smile when I see a white or silver tree -- flash back to the 50s and early 60s! They were absent for a long time but it's nice to see the variety of having them back!


Thanks for sharing the blues you found.

Happy Blue Monday, Susan!


Your town looks like mine. Historic district all down town. New retail shops right next to vintage shops and all the preps for the Christmas season. Hot cider and cookies. Loved your post Susan.


I loce shopping around Christmas just to see so mant different trees and all the bling that goes with them.

How magical! So much to put us in the holiday mood! Isn't that little red owl adorable! ♥♥♥

I'll definitely have to explore some of the smaller towns near me. Your town must be a lovely place in which to live.

Wow Susan, How I would love to wander around your quaint little town. Love all of the trees. And oh, that gingerbread house is so cute! I can see that the basket charmed you. Hope it's still there when you return. We have some fun shops, but I love the uniqueness of this little village. Happy Holidays!

Very nice blog. Enjoyed the pics!
I think we have some sort of Karmic connection.
I am the person who made the gingerbread house for Tiffany in 2009. I saw it on your blog from that year.
Then, I was reading this one, and was surprised to see my house for this year!
What a coincidence!
Have a Merry Christmas!
P.S.- My backyard is FULL of Black-Eyed Susans!!

Hi Joe, I was tickled pink to know that you saw those posts! Did you also make the gingerbread house at the frame shop on the other side of town? I would like so much to write a post about you if you are up for it. Did you go to school for art or culinary? So many questions.

Best Regards, Susan

Hi Susan~
I did go to culinary school and am working as a pastry chef. I guess I consider myself somewhat of an artist. I always have loved the arts in all its forms. My gardens are my favorite creations. I did not make the other house you are asking about. The house in this blog was made in such a hurry this year, but I really was pleased as to how it came out. I wanted a bit more detail, but I am so busy this time of the year- I was under a strict deadline!
Again, great blog. Loved the photos of your home!
Would love to share some garden pics with you.
How can we correspond?
