Christmas in the Village of Zionsville

Perennial Shop

Hum Bug- The Attic Antiques

Carter's Toy Museum



Historic brick streets
For the kids
The Friendly tavern. A good place for lunch and they are very friendly.

We went to Zionsville on Saturday. It is a small historic town in Indiana just northwest of Indianapolis. Lots of antiques, little shops, and restaurants. You can wander along the brick streets and listen to Christmas carols during their Christmas in the village. It was a good time. Bought a few more Santas and an ornament for an exchange. It was quite cold but that added to the Christmas spirit.

Good Morning Nan,
Oh what a beautiful trip. Thanks for taking us along. I so enjoyed it. Everything is just beautiful there. I have heard of Zionsville. I have been with hubby out on the road and have been thru Indianapolis before and I may have seen a sign that goes to there. I love the brick road look. There is one in Memphis as well. I don't go to Memphis like I used to because of so much meaness and killings. They are pretty to walk down tho. I bet this one in Zionsville makes you feel like you are in a village with the Christmas music playing. Yes, the cold does make it feel more Christmasy. It is cold here this morning. It is down to 30 degrees now. Well, take care my friend and have a great Monday. Stay warm. May God Bless You and Yours.

Hugs,
Karen H.

Nan,
That certainly looks like a fun place to while away an afternoon. I can almost smell the woodsmoke wafting from the chimneys. I stole your Quiz from yesterday, mostly to see if I "could". This is such a learning adventure, isn't it?

That looks like a beautiful place! I love seeing little towns like that!

Regarding your comment on my blog...I only have one Christopher Radko ornament. The others look like his but are much less expensive. I do love his ornaments, I wish I could afford them!

Have a blessed day!
