One more quickie post for today, because its Friendsday! It occurred to me as I was unwrapping and putting out my decorations, that some of these are like old friends that I haven't seen since last year! Like this quintet of snowmen that sit on my living room mantle. They were bought at one particular Christmas craft fair over the last few years, until one year the fair didn't have them. So five is probably all that I'll ever have. They are kinda wobbly so I have to arrange them just so, then they hold each other up. Maybe they've been in the wassail when no one was looking. I love how they look like they're wearing long-johns. Wouldn't they make kooky characters for a children's book?
These guys hang out on the piano each year. Its like some odd Santa convention, some very homemade by my kids, some folksy, some traditional. My favorites are the three tallest ones, they are made of tin, purchased at a wonderful little shop in Wimberley, Texas when my folks lived there. I love 'em! (the Santas AND my folks!)
Tomorrow... December 1st! Time to start your Advent calendars!
