I'm in need of a little Christmas cheer about now as I'm not feeling so merry. Our internet went down at 8 p.m. last night in the middle of a critical work deadline and we've been told it might be 24+ hours before we're back up and running. If you live in a small town like we do and have CenturyLink service, internet just isn't very reliable. I can't recommend CenturyLink for that reason. This is the fourth time in a year that our internet has been down for more than 15 hours and that's bad news for someone like me who relies on internet for business purposes. Luckily, we were able to set up my Mac elsewhere bright and early this morning so I could make my noon work deadline! And as I wait for the designer to get some layouts back to me for review, I thought I'd share a few festive holiday images from a wonderful local shop named Hinge, which was has been decked out in holiday finery since Thanksgiving. The owner has a knack for dazzling displays like these santas on a miniature spiral staircase.

I've got a weakness for lanterns, and this one looks so magical in silver. It seemed to have a Turkish flair. 

Doesn't this little glittered house cozy? I was tempted to get it but decided on a pink Santa instead. I am a pink kind of girl, after all. 

I hope your day is off to a better start than mine! If I'm unable to get back online before the holidays, I hope you and your family have a wonderful one!
