Christmas Countdown.....

Each year we travel to the Central Coast so that my Mother can visit my brother and his family for a few days at Christmas time.
We get to stay at the Apple Farm....and even though we visit often, there is never a better time than at the Christmas season.

The Inn is decorated to perfection....and they always treat us like family.

This year they surprised Jim an I by upgrading us to the "Honeymoon Suite"....which caused quite a giggle!!!!
The room is not only large and comfy, but it also has a cupola in the ceiling so you can see the stars from your bed. Very romantic!!!!

The nights were cold and crisp....perfect for putting us into the Christmas mood.

There is even a trolly to take you to town for some fun shopping......

...but you don't have to leave the Inn to find some wonderful holiday inspiration. Don't you just love this Christmas bouquet????

There are rooms FULL of gifts to buy and vignettes to inspire.

Inspired I was by this simple quilt with frayed exposed edges between each row. I have mentally put it on my list to use up some of my scraps!!!!

The few days at the Apple Farm certainly put me into a "Holly Jolly" Christmas mood. But that was only the START of our vacation....more to share tomorrow!!!!

I think I would like to stay at the Apple Farm too! The decorations would put anyone into the Holiday mood. Looking forward to more pictures!

Apple Farm looks wonderful!! One of these years!!! I crane my neck to see from the 101 FWY every time I travel up north to see Frank and Kara!
