Little Fellas....

I love these little guys!!
A little history:  They are Roy Des of Fla  (c) 1970 banks.  These were given out as premiums at banks, as an incentive to open a new account.  These two belonged to my younger brother, and spent a long, long time in my Mom's attic.  I was up there quite a few years ago and found them.  I got the OK to bring them to my home and have had them for about 10 years now.  I keep them out all year long because I like them so much.  They just make me smile!

They are residing in my DR corner cabinet for the holidays and they feel right at home there...

Really, they do!  I asked them!   haha

Jar of lightbulbs.....

Here's what I did with the lightbulbs from a string of lights that I was about to throw away.
I didn't want to keep the set any longer, but decided to keep the bulbs.
I think they look cute in my big jar.  What do you think?

Mini Present....

I've been making miniature presents.....
And trying to perfect the tiny little bows that go on top.
I finally have a procedure in place to make them.
They take a good 6 hours for the glue to dry. 
I can make 1 or 2 a day!
Patience is a virtue!

Our Christmas Tree.....

When we took our old tree out of the box and started to put it together, most of the lights didn't work!  So, a new tree was needed.  We had the old one for about 15 years, so it didn't owe us a thing!
So we found this beauty at Lowe's.  It is a 6 1/2 ft. Colorado Blue Spruce.  It has a bluish tone and has a white spray at the ends of the branches.  It has lights that twinkle and pinecones on the branches.  We decorated it with glass balls only.  I love the whole thing.  Here's to another 15 years!  haha

And now all we need are the presents!

Miniature, that is...

 The first piece is a buffet...

Baking some gingerbread cookies...

These pieces are for a project
that I've been working on.
It is finished and I can relax

Light up the night!!!..........

I absolutely love the new LED string lights for outdoors.....

Now I don't need to rewire the house to have lots of Christmas lights out there...

These lights use very little electricity and the bulbs last forever!

As you can see, I've used quite a few  around my yard.

I found it difficult to get some really good pictures, but I think you can get the idea.
This is my favorite tree--a Dwarf Alberta Spruce.

This Teddy Bear is 6 Ft. tall...Love him!!

The front of the house~~
all ready for Santa!

P.S.  I am asking for more lights and extension cords for Christmas!!  lol
