Cracker Barrel Christmas

Alright, I know you don't want to think about Christmas yet but it seems it is unavoidable, especially if you like Cracker Barrel. We stopped in Foley, Alabama to have breakfast on Saturday before beginning our long journey to NoAla.   I had to stop and take some pictures to share with all you Cracker Barrel Fans.

It appears BIRDS are big this Christmas.

I just loved this little tea pot with its own cup.

More Birds...


Really?

Cute spoon holders for the stove.

And there were a few more nature themed Christmas displays..

Merry Christmas Deer!

I need one of these for Grimmwood as there are some Bears in the area.

And finally a cute barn...

I bet Red Two would enjoy that Christmas decoration. Cousin Scott was at the farm over the weekend and snapped this picture of one of Bruce's herd.

Finally...something that I want to use to display with my needlework.

I think  the little houses would look nice with some of my stitched houses. I am thinking this one over...ok, I will admit it, I am heading to my local Cracker Barrel to pick up one of these. Now to decide which one!!

Hope you enjoyed browsing Cracker Barrel!! It is one of my favorite places to eat as well as shop!

I love to browse around in Cracker Barrel, they always have pretty things to enjoy. I love the teapot with the red birds, it might be joining my collection!!

Mary, I think those houses will be cute displayed with my monthly cottages that Sandy gifted to me. Karen, I am sad you do not have a Cracker Barrel close by. It is one of my favorite places to shop. Diane...I cannot help myself in Cracker Barrel. Mary H, My friend Deborah purchased the tea pot and she loves it.

We ate at a Cracker Barrel on Saturday and I just fell in love with the Woodland Stoneware dishes with the cardinals and that teapot! It's probably a good thing we don't live too close to Cracker Barrel-I'd be shopping there all the time!

Terri D said...

Cracker Barrel does have such cute things in their gift shop! I think you need a grouping of three houses to go with the cross-stitch creations! Just helping you make that decision! (winking)

I always love EVERYthing at CB. Love these little prim houses and look forward to seeing your choice!

This was fun to see even if it is early. I always suggested stopping at Cracker Barrel for at least one meal when we were on vacation. My sons said that I just wanted to shop in the store. They were right, of course! They do have some of the best things. My in-laws are big Cracker Barrel fans and my mother-in-law has given me several gifts from there over the years. Their things are so charming and unique.

Ladies, I am a big kid when it comes to Christmas. In fact, all the fall and winter holidays are fun to decorate for and celebrate.

Arlene Grimm said...

Phoebe, thanks for stopping to visit in Nanaland.

Dianna said...

Oh, those houses are adorable, Arlene! I will be looking forward to seeing which one you choose when you go to your local Cracker Barrel.

We don't have a Cracker Barrel nearby, but I always love stopping at one when we travel. Absolutely love the cardinal teapot :)

I could look at Christmas items all year 'round. The Cardinals remind me of my dad's mother. She just loved the color red and Cardinals were her favorite bird. Bluebirds were a close second. My mother's mother would have loved the teapot. We loved having tea together. :)

I love cardinals. They have a very special meaning to me. So I definitely will get myself over to a Cracker Barrel for breakfast in the very near future. Love those adorable houses too. They will be perfect with stitches. RJ@stitchingfriendsforever

Oh ... thanks for sharing, Arlene! Our nearest Cracker Barrel is about an hour and 20 min. away, so I don't get there often. But that cardinal teapot is almost irresistible! I loved the light up paper barn as well and think I need one of those to add to my village!

What darling items you saw at Cracker Barrel! We don't have a store here but I really enjoyed your pictures. I love the cardinal tea-for-one! Found you through Mrs. T's Christmas blog. Thanks for sharing and enjoy your weekend.
