A Christmas Walk Around Poulsbo

You all  said so many nice things about the Christmas Garden.  I appreciate it so very much!! I'm having fun with the PS Santa.  However, I'm already planning the next big one.  I have gone through my sampler charts and right now it looks like it will be Mary Gibson.  I love the houses in that sampler.  I will have to get fabric and threads together. Today was a very nice day so we decided to go into town (Poulsbo) and take some photos.  We noticed on Sun. that many of the shops were all decked out for the season.  I hope you enjoy seeing our little town!

This is the view going into Poulsbo from our home.

 You can see this from a side street in town.

What season is this??!!

 Our favorite coffee shop.

 From the main street. The name is Front Street.

 This is a restaurant where summer dining is so nice outside.

 This shop belongs to an artist who is famous for her rain designs.

Just a little house on a side street.

 This is a common winter resident, the female bufflehead diving duck.(I think!)

This gull thought it was a bit cold.  It was all puffed up.
Hope you are all having a wonderful week!
