We moved to the Philadelphia area last June. When exploring the area we found the Philadelphia Premium Outlet Mall just 20 minutes away. Well we had a little time and decided to stop by. Quite a surprise, a nice outlet mall. Best of all, right after getting there and looking at the store directory I spotted this Big Ornament. Had to get this photo.
I’m glad I got this photo, down on Mass Ave., in Indianapolis since shortly afterward some grinch stole this decoration.
Julia, Deb and I saw this Santa along the 101 on our way for a day trip to Santa Barbara. After some relaxing time, wine sampling and a great lunch we stopped on the way back to LA. It was puzzling why this Big Santa was located there in Nyeland Acres on Ventura Blvd. alongside the 101. I still don’t have answers to that but it is the starting point for the “Santa to the Sea” half marathon. I looked at their website and was pretty impressed, they use the entry fees to but toys for kids and give scholarships to deserving high schoolers.
At the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis there is a two story entry to the museum. Hanging from the ceiling were all these Big Snowflakes. Very pretty but also hard to photograph to get the right perspective. I think the Chief Photographer did a pretty good job here.
Years ago, we traveled from Philadelphia to Champaign, Illinois to drop Andy off to start his freshmen year at the University of Illinois. We spent the night in Indianapolis and found a Big Trowel at Habig’s nursery in Westfield. Well, after we moved to Indianapolis in 2002 I found that Habig had multiple locations. The original location is on College Ave just south of Broad Ripple. Recently we stopped to get this image on a cold morning after a good snowfall. Here is the original trowel, dressed up with a Santa hat.
Ben and I were on our way to the Apple Store on Rte 73 in Marlton, NJ. When we pulled into the shopping center we spotted these Nutcrackers guarding the entrance. Had to stop and grab this image.
