As you might imagine we have been madly tying knots to keep up with the holiday sales. Jill and Matt are extra busy tying and managing the 'project schedule' to keep our artisans on track. So many knots so little time!

I was asked to stroll through downtown Mystic and try to capture some holiday energy with my camera. It was so much fun I came back later to shoot some night shots. Near the end of my night time walk the bridge went up, no crossing and it was cold too. Luckily I was at the Mystic Drawbridge Ice Cream shop! The coast was pretty clear and soon I was back outside with a hot chocolate. Oh what a night!

It's not too late to send a letter to Santa just drop it in Mystical Toy's special Santa mailbox. Then travel over the bridge and check out the schooner Argia and her pretty wreath.
