It's Friday evening and I can't hardly believe how quickly the week and today have flown by. Last night I finished decorating the tree and I'm so happy to have that behind me. I love doing this, but I tell you it seems to take me longer and longer each year.
How are you doing with your Christmas shopping? I just started this morning, and oh my the mall was so crowded, but it was fun, everyone was in high spirits. Santa was there and it was cute seeing the little ones visiting him and having their pictures taken. I love pictures and I have lots of photos setting about. At Christmas time I always have these two pictures on the sofa table.......
The one on the left is Lisa's first visit with Santa, she is nine months old. Such sweet memories. The other picture is me when I was eight years old. When I was little and you went shopping you always got dressed up.....can you see my little hat that matches my coat.
I think this rose will be the last for this year. It's time to prune and I just picked the last few little blooms.
More post cards. Do you see the one edged in purple. Who would have thought way back in 1910 an artist would use purple on a card. I like it , just because it is different. The Santa cup is very old. Lisa's grandpa bought it for her when she was little. She no longer uses it, but likes it at her place for Christmas dinner.
Look at the wonderful goodies from my sweet blogging friend Priscilla@ Priscilla's Cottage. She lives in England and these are all sweets from there. I have had a little of most of them and they are so delish. Isn't the little reindeer tea towel fun and I love the red post box. Thank you Priscilla http://priscillascottage.blogspot.com/. Priscilla is a wonderful baker and cake decorator and you should see her amazing creations. Please visit her lovely blog, you will enjoy it.
Tomorrow Lisa and I are going to Christmas Tea and then Sunday is the WX Peddlers Faire. Do you have weekend plans? Whatever you do enjoy! Linda
