Christmas is Coming! Heh, heh, heh.....

So, we are past the middle of October, slowly closing in on November when all the sales start.  We are approaching the snow season for some areas of the country, and there are those of us who want to get our shopping done prior to being snowed in.

There are others of us who want to get our shopping done and have someone else mail it out for us! Personally, I think that is why God made the internet. ;o)

I have purchased a few little goodies for my family so far to include in the packages I mail out.  I also am going to make one small item for each package (and in some cases that is ALL that will be in the package).  So I wanted to share with you a couple of the items that I have ready.  These come from Mitchell-Larsen Studio in St. Croix.  I may have shared the clock that she sent to me in another post, or the doggie plate.

The top one is like one of the White House ornaments that I believe will be hanging on the White House Christmas tree.  They are really really cute!  There are two more that I'll photograph later.

This second one is a cat eating a fish....I love cats and have several 'cat friends' who collect such things.  There are also several dogs, as well as all sorts of birds or butterflies or whatever! 

These can be hung on a tree or in the window dangling from a clear acrylic wire (like fishing line) attached at the top of a window casing.

More to come.....happy shopping!
