Happy Sunday Everyone!
It is 2 weeks to Christmas, some of you might be all done with your Christmas shopping or perhaps you are like me and are still deciding what to get as gifts.
December Is the month of celebrating and joy. I alway spend my Sunday afternoons at my favorite local stores Looking all the whimsical Christmas decorations in the shop displays.
My two favorite stores that I have been drawn to at this time a year to enjoy their fantasy decorations are The Marguerite Gardens and The Foursided in the Andersonville neighborhood of Chicago.
The Marguerite Gardens ( ANDERSONVILLE ,5059 North Clark Street, Phone: (773) 506-6295 )
is a European-Style flower shop with a unique floral design with locations in both the Andersonville on the West side neighborhoods. They golden and glittery decorations remind me of the magical element of Christmas. While I was walking in the shop, I felt a little like I was in an "Alice in Wonderland," Christmas special.
The Foursided (5061 N. Clark St., Chicago, IL 60640 Phone 773-506-8300 )has framing, cards, and vintage gifts. Every year they gather all the vintage Christmas decorations and display tin the store in a way that can be described as whimsical. Every kind of ornament that you would think of are hanging on the decorated Christmas tree.
The fun vintage decorations are so beautiful and beg to be taken home.
My favorite part of the store is the Chicago art wall which features great items that you will cherish forever.
Remember to Support local stores and to shop small.

"You love someone, you open yourself up to suffering, that's the sad truth. Maybe they'll break your heart, maybe you'll break their heart and never be able to look at yourself in the same way. Those are the risks. That's the burden.Like wings, they have weight, we feel that weight on our backs, but they are a burden that lifts us. Burdens which allow us" Bones
