We visited Leavenworth early this year and the small town still decorated with beautiful Christmas lights. We shopped around at a famous store named ‘Kris Kingle’ which is an year round Christmas store. The decoration inside was beautiful and we captured few shots.

Five Photos- Five Stories- Bokeh

Two weeks ago on Valentine’s day we decided to spend our day at Leavenworth. It is located about 100 miles from Seattle and the entire town is modeled on a Bavarian village. Since it was a Saturday we started early in the day. The weather was pleasant and the drive was beautiful. We roamed around the town and did some shopping too.

There is a famous store named ‘Kris Kingle’ which is an year round Christmas store. It is located in the heart of the Alpine Village of Leavenworth in the Cascade Mountain foothills of Washington. They have a huge collection of Christmas treasures, theme trees, unique ornaments, and home decor. As we stepped inside the store a huge Christmas tree was beautifully decorated. I liked these peacock feathers as a part of the tree decoration and would like to share these with you.

My thank you to Priceless Joy for nominating me to this special Five Photos Five Stories challenge. I am to post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story, either fiction or non-fiction, or a short paragraph, to the photo each day. Next I am to select one person (each day), to carry on this challenge. Accepting the challenge is entirely upto the person nominated, and is not mandatory.

Today I would like to nominate author of the blog TROCIMAL to participate in this challenge.

This is my last day of this special Five Photos Five Stories challenge. I had great fun in the past five days. Hope you had some fun too.
