Remember the good old days of blogging, before Pinterest, when we would feature our blogging friends and what was going on in their world? Somehow I have gotten away from that, but today I will feature three four bloggers because you do not have enough to do these days. < insert wry, very wry, grin >
(Because I have learned, reading Pinterest features, that one never should provide links until the end, I'm trying that today.)
First up, on Baking Day, a package arrived containing such treasures. I tell you, it was like Christmas morning.
Lovely vintage fabrics, vintage postcards, ornaments, a coaster, Before Amen by Max Lucado, and other items that must remain secret.
I'll take any opportunity to share the wee tree. My chickadee is wearing a knitted cap formerly used as an ornament. It fits him so well. All three of the new ornaments are on the tree, but they are well disguised. One is too well disguised.
Love these crocheted hearts with their buttons and long ties. I might be tempted to wear one as a necklace some day!
I've not made many gifts this year. Have you?
Since December arrived, we have not had much in the way of weather except rain, rain, and more rain. Sometimes it's freezing rain. However, back in November on Thanksgiving Eve we had a doozy of a snowstorm and have I ever got a story for you written by a dear blogger. Here I live in Maine and have for most of my life, but this blogging buddy comes to Maine for Thanksgiving and has a great adventure. I'm thinking a Christmas movie adventure!
I may have been watching a few Christmas movies because the next story definitely qualifies as Christmas movie material, from the Yukon no less. It warmed my heart and, dare I confess, made me cry. I love stories like this! I know that you will, too.
Now in case you're wondering what the last photo has to do with anything...
Back in the olden days of blogging, we used to get our decorating inspiration from blogs. Yesterday, I visited a home tour and found this decorating inspiration, only her poinsettia was in a crock and mine's in a tin. Either way, the black plastic pot is camouflaged. (I like the beautiful foil that they come in, but understand that it is not good for the plant.)
