Shop local -- colorfully

Bed at Quilt Revolution quilt shop in Gig Harbor.

Today I went down to the harbor (Gig Harbor) to focus on color and do some local Christmas shopping. I started at Quilt Revolution, where they always have a colorfully made up bed by the door.

There was plenty of red and green.

 In the same building, but down around the corner, is Rainy Day Yarns, my next stop.

It was loaded with color!

Comfy sitting area at Rainy Day Yarns.
My next stop was to buy wild colorful knitted socks -- not at the yarn store but at Wild Birds Unlimited.

The socks are deliberately mismatched and make great gifts. Outside, Wild Birds has a very colorful courtyard.

Then, because we finally had sunshine after days of rain, I strolled through the harbor out onto the public dock and snapped some pictures of the boats and colorful row of life jackets that you can use for free (the life jackets, not the boats).

These two boats are named "Sugar Pops" and "Kahlua" -- sounds like breakfast!

Have a colorful day

Very colorful! Glad you got a little sunshine! We have had cold, snow, with a white Christmas in the forecast this year. BTW, love the yarns in your post... yummy!

I'm so far behind on blog reading....but wanted to say, catching up with yours never's always so interesting and of course colorful. Hope you aren't in danger of floating away with all the rain you folks are having.
