BABY IT'S COLD OUTSIDE

It sure is cold.  There were flurries yesterday but no accumulation.  There are only 30 days til Christmas, just in case you didn't know.  I want to be able to enjoy my decorations for Christmas more than just 3 weeks, so I started today.  I also found out that my Mom will have to have another back surgery the Monday after Thanksgiving.  That is always the busiest week of the holidays for me, for some reason.  So the decorations are going up. 
Hubby brought my sweet bear tree upstairs for me.  I went to Canal Winchester yesterday and found the neatest lights.  They falsh, blink or just stay lit.  When they blink slowly they look like little stars.  So the tree is lit but more decorations to come.  DO YOU KNOW WHAT THIS IS......This is a teeny tiny glass mason jar.  It has a little rubber stopper on the top that you can insert a light from your Christmas tree strand.  You could do a whole strand of these if you wished.  I was going to do that, and I really wanted to but the jars were $3.50 a piece.  How cute is this.  I have never seen them before.  I also went to Polly's darling cozy shop, Georgie Emerson, and bought this garland.
Isn't this sweet.  There are rusty jingle bells on a burlap ribbon.  I asked Polly if she sewed each one on.....she rolled her eyes at me, hah.  I may or may not add lights to it. 
 
 
When I got home yesterday this huge box was outside.  I knew it was coming.  I won this beautiful bust like Santos.  She was hard to photograph.   She wouldn't smile or open her eyes.  She's really big.  I love her.  I have wanted something Santos lie for a long time.  I even signed up to take a course to make one.  There was also a magazine and homemade Christmas tags in the box.  What a nice win .   Thank you so much Sharon.

What a wonderful win - that Santos is beautiful! Debby, whenever I try to answer one of your comments directly, the email gets bumped back to me because apparently the email is no longer valid? Just wanted to let you know that. It's happened a few times.

Thanks.

That is a wonderful win, Debby! WOW One of the best prizes I've seen! Good for you for starting your Christmas decorating. I am waiting until after Thanksgiving because I will have a houseful then.

I think you have to go into your settings to change that address to your new one, Debie. Up at the little 3 bar box on the upper right hand corner. xo Diana

I'm working on my two trees because I'm going to Florida for the first week in December. Other decorations will go up when I get home. Praying for your mother and her surgery. I am in love with the little mason jar. I'm going to have to google them. Love the bust you won!
Happy Thanksgiving.....

Perhaps they will be in the post today? My email is peinhell@hotmail.com l havn't got it availiable on my blog as l am lousy atchecking it. Pam xx

It's Thanksgiving Day, and our family eats an early dinner instead of lunch. Just now there is a lull between the hectic preparations and all the guests arriving for the meal. I wanted to take some of that time to visit my blogging friends. I needed to say thank you. Thank you for the inspiration you provide here in your place and for the comments you leave behind when you visit mine. Happy Thanksgiving, friend.

Love your Santos Debby. I bet you were excited to unwrap that. Have a lovely and peaceful Christmas, Friend.

Donna W said...
