Finally got my tree down.  Thought I would leave some greenery up for awhile.  Just been enjoying my time off from work.  I should be doing some constructive things but hasn’t happened yet!

Cute Gift!

Need a last minute Christmas gift?  I just think this snowman is adorable!  He was a Christmas surprise from my supervisor.  His hat is a pair of gloves.   One glove is inside the other. The white paper is wrapped around a bag of microwave popcorn.  The only problem is he’s so darn cute I don’t want to take him apart.  I will though to wear those snuggie gloves but I’m going to enjoy him a little while longer first.  On the back she wrote, “Just popping in to wish you a Merry Christmas!”   Just wanted to share with you all, cause I thought it was so clever!

I have to share a funny story with you all.  My mom and I were out shopping the other day and went into this little shop.  A very nice older gentleman was tending the store for his wife.  As we were looking around,  he informed us, “My wife called and said to mark down all the Primitive dolls half price.  To me, primitive means ugly, so I just went around and marked down all the ugly things.”

I had to smile to myself because as you know, some people just don’t get “primitive” and they either like it or they don’t.

When checking out, he was making out my ticket trying to write down what I had bought and with a puzzled but serious look on his face he said to me,  “I don’t know what you’d call that thing… maybe you do?”   Every time I think about it, I just burst out laughing.

Although he wasn’t impressed with my purchases, I sure am.  I love my grubby little gingerbread man tied on to a tea stained red ticking candy cane and…

the little snowman head on an old forgotten door knob, how unique is that?!

Yes, I suppose what appeals to me, to some, may most certainly appear strange to them.  But given the choice over the newest sparkling glassware or an old door knob topped with a snowman head, you can bet your fanciest overalls, I’m gonna go with the door knob!

I caught him yawning in this one but I prefer to tell everyone he’s telling me to “knock if off already!”

My brother and I have had this Santa ever since we were just little tiny folks!  So he’s around 50 years old,  not that we are mind you!  He has a little wind up thingy ma jig on his back but he doesn’t play music anymore.  I reckon he is too tired but I love him just the same!

Here comes Santa Claus - here comes Santa Claus- right down Santa Claus lane…

More Christmas Decorating

Here are a few more pictures of my Christmas decorating.  I tried to put a few ornaments on my tree but Jasper kept batting at them and I was afraid he would knock over the tree so I just took them off.  I guess I could put something on the very top, that might be safe!

I usually put a tree up in the kitchen but I don’t know if I will get around to that this year or not.  Time will tell I guess.  Just got home from work and now I think I will go enjoy a cup of coffee!  Stay warm!
