Christmas in Miami- The Store

Maybe because it's an unseasonably 74 degrees Up North in The South, or maybe because this will be my first Christmas without any of my trio or family, but I'm thinking about Christmas in Miami.  And when I think of that, I think of and remember,

Christmas in Miami

And to those of you rembered this pic from my Bayside post , oh you're good!
 Y  a los que pensaron en  pork,black beans and rice-
JU SO FONII!!!  and probably Cuban too.

Of course Babushka was intrigued by the name and had to see what this store had inside.  
As my grandmother La Tata would say, it had maravillas!  

Por supuesto it had the obligatory flamingos and other tropical and seaside ornaments.

and the sports teams

But then it had-

Did you notice the one in the middle?  If BB had been able to, he would have "left the building". 

Now you KNOW the coffee ornaments were soooo BB.

Quickly I averted my eyes to stop any further temptations 


and discovered snow in Miami!!

It's the coolest thing!  Y si, the pun was intentional.

A white flaky substance (reminded me of instant mashed potatoes) that when added to water becomes cold to the touch and very well could pass for snow. 

 Maravillas I tell you, maravillas.

Now for you traditionalists out there, you have not been forgotten.

And speaking of tradition, I plan to start my own when I go back to Miami.  This store will personalize the ornaments you buy- maravilla!

Every major event will be commemorated with an ornament, starting with,

Bride & Grooms, Couples

If you've been following Babushka for awhile now you know she believes in serendipity and signs.
  Bueno, considering my trio of angels will now all be in Miami, I am coffee crazed and I'm also of Chinese descent. I had to smile when I saw this.

Oh Si.  I will be back to celebrate Christmas in Miami.

Babushka Besos a todos.  Cuidensen.

P.S.  Part of the charm of the shop were the attendants   Unfortunately BB lost the names of the two lovely ladies and hope they contact me to give them publicly the appreciation they deserve.

Groovy Spanglish speaking Grandma of 6 who loves life and all its adventures. Motivational while still keeping it real, Babushka shows how all things looked at with gratitude are good, and how to say to la vida- JU SO FONII!!!
