It's Munch Time

Look who dropped by.  It's one of the wild javelina families that often drop by for a visit.


Can't you imagine what this mom is telling her baby?  "Hurry up and get moving".


"What are you looking at?"


Time for you guys to get out of here.
Bye Bye!

Day Twenty Four

In the Advent Calendar today
is a vintage Santa cookie cutter. That reminds me of something...  I better leave out a plate of cookies and milk for Santa.


Lots to do today and lots to be grateful for.
Our family will gather and have dinner, then we are off to church to celebrate mass and give praise and thanks to God who so richly blesses our family everyday. After church we always open our gifts on Christmas eve.

 Whatever traditions and faith that you celebrate, I want to wish you a blessed holiday and wishes for
love, peace, happiness and joy for you and your family.

Goody Goody Gumdrops

While decorating my little
gumdrop tree, along came this
 little flocked dear deer.


I guess she likes gumdrops too.


I hope you are enjoying
whatever you are doing today.
This weekend is going to be a busy one. Finishing up the shopping and I will be baking some yummy sugar cookies too.
Welcome new friends.  I will be
visiting you soon.

Today in the Advent Calendar
is a little cottage perfume bottle
for day sixteen.

More Vintage Christmas

I thought I would share some more
of my vintage Christmas collection.


I have an old toy red wagon
that I fill with old Santas and toys.
I found this Santa doll and the light up star this year while thrifting.




Doesn't he have a sweet face?


I found these ornaments
in their original box this year.


This vintage Santa was found for a mere $1.99.


I have so much fun getting out all the decorations and finding new ones to add to my growing collection.  It's almost a shame that there is such a short time to enjoy them before they are put away until next Christmas.

Day Fifteen

Day 15 in the Advent Calendar


Four gingerbread men sat on a tray.
The first one said, "Let's run away!"
The second one said, "Where will we run?"
The third one said, "We'll have some fun!"
The fourth one said, "We'll be eaten if we stay."
So the gingerbread men all ran away!

So I wonder. . .
Is that why he looks so sad?

Don't you worry little gingerbread man,
I couldn't eat you if I tried.
But as for your little friends. . .

They better start running.

Bed Head

Look at this sweet little angel.


I think she just rolled
out of bed this morning
looking this way.


Doesn't she even own a comb?
Nope I don't think so.
This angel may have
"bed head" but she is still
as sweet as ever.

Day Seven

Day Seven on the Advent Calendar.
Baby it's cold outside.
Brrrrr....
Hope you are warm
where ever you are.


Once There Was A Snowman
Author Unknown

Once there was a snowman
Who stood outside the door,
He wished that he could come inside,
And run about the floor.
He wished that he could warm himself,
Beside the fire, so red,
He wished that he could climb
Upon the big white bed.
So he called to the North Wind,
"Come and help me, pray.
For I'm completely frozen,
Standing here all day."
So the North Wind came along,
And blew him in the door,
And now there is nothing left,
But a puddle on the floor!

I've got a hot cup of coffee in hand,
a fire burning in the fireplace,

Enough said.
