Christmas Celebration in Peebles



This past Saturday, December 3rd, we went to the Peebles Christmas Celebration 2016 in Peebles, Ohio.

I took the opportunity to do a little Christmas shopping at the American Legion which was set up from 10AM to 4PM.  There were about 12 vendors selling their wares.  I bought a great little snowman made out of an old signal light cover and I picked up some information on Posh products including a small sample of some Cackle Spackle (I’ve used it a couple of times and it is a refreshing mask).  There were also crafters of jewelry and woodwork to buy from.  There were other independent consultants for Scentsy and other businesses.

I try not to spend a day in Peebles without going to my favorite coffee shop, The Greene Beanery.  I went there and bought some coffee and a mug for Christmas gifts.  I bought Timot Fair Trade Coffee.  One reason I like it (besides the dark chocolate and smooth nutty taste) is because it is chemical free. It has low acidity and a full body which most coffee lovers will enjoy.  I entered my name in their Christmas Gift Basket Raffle.  Fingers crossed that my ticket is a winner!

I also did some Christmas shopping for gifts at a store I’ve never been in before: The Gospel Connection Inc. It is a christian book store and full line music store.  It is a great place to go for christian gifts such as bibles, books, apparel, music, and wall art. In addition they have guitars, mandolins, other musical instruments and lots of accessories.  I bought some gifts for my niece, sister and mom which I’m pretty sure they are going to love.

As I was walking in town I stopped to see the nativity.

Mr. and Mrs. Claus were available for children to visit by the Christmas tree from 4pm to 6PM. At 6PM the Christmas tree was lit in the center of town.

I had a front row seat for all the action at my new Vine Street atelier where I am still getting settled.  I washed the windows, vacuumed and mopped.  I set up my computer most of the way, but unfortunately I forgot the cord for my monitor.

Looking For a Sign?

Greene Beanery Coffee House Roastery, Ohio

When you walk in the door the sign on the wall reads, “If you were waiting for a sign this is it.Tweet: If you were waiting for a sign this is it.

If you are looking for a sign you’ve died and gone to heaven that is.  I’m talking about the Greene Beanery Coffee House Roastery in Peebles, Ohio located in Adams County.  The moment I walked in the door the delicious coffee aroma made me take a deep breath and bask in it.  I thought I was in heaven.

For lunch I had the featured Red Pepper Bisque  which was delicious and an iced coffee.  The ice cubes are made with frozen coffee.  Prices were $3.75 and $3.55 respectively.  With free Wi-Fi this is a great place to stop in during the day and write a blog post or get some work done.  Or just relax by the fireplace or on the porch.

Our current little gift shop location has some issues with water leaking in so I was out looking for a new space to rent or buy today.  After my stop here in Peebles I think I found my sign and where we’ll be moving to.
