Pimentos for Christmas

Pimentos for Christmas

Each year around Christmas, I give my husband a picture wish list of what I want from Pimentos. My friend Teresa owns the unique little gift shop, located in Athens, Alabama.

Okay, Lefty, here’s my wish list! 🙂

Sold the Farm

Barn ornament
Ever heard the expression, “He sold the farm?” I think it means someone sold something way under value. As you all probably know by now, I’m from a farm in southwest Alabama. We didn’t have a red barn like this, but I can now if I get it for Christmas! (Hint, hint!) ;-p  Pimentos has a lot of these cotton ball stems in their store.  I find it very apropos for the little Athens store since several of my Athens relatives had to pick cotton for a living back in the 30’s and 40’s.

Charms, Glorious Charms

Pimentos has charms of all shapes and sizes. I especially like their pearls, since I’m a pearl girl.

This is only a small sample of Pimentos charms. They have charms of crosses, animals, hobbies, and letters. I think I got my niece a rhinestone initial one year.

Note: I didn’t receive anything for promoting Pimentos in Athens, Alabama. I just hope you’ll stop by because Teresa is a sweet friend of mine, and I love her locally-owned store. If you had to choose, what is your favorite thing from the Pimentos pictures?

The Wild Christmas Picture Piggy Chase

I’m a little old-fashioned about that sending Christmas cards, so Lefty, Princess Buttercup, and I went out to our woods to take our Christmas photos. I wanted to get some pictures of Princess Buttercup by herself but knew she would balk until I told her that I’d let her put her guinea pigs, Dr. Pepper… Continue Reading

Oh Christmas Tree!

When I was a girl growing up in south Alabama, one of our favorite Christmas traditions was to go fetch our Christmas tree. Mom, Dave, whatever dog we had at the time, and I would bundle up in our winter coats, our “Bama” toboggans, and mittens and meet Dad around the corner of the house… Continue Reading
