Wanted, More Christmas Ornaments like this. Just look at this reindeer . Look at those legs, and the dinner jacket and little black shoes and bow tie. Is he adorable?
If you ever see this Reindeer let me know. where, so I can buy him..
When I saw this ornament how could I walk away?
For attention, My Dog Thor use to cross his legs. So, when I saw the high heels, I had to buy this one. I Miss him every day and night.
This tree is shedding like crazy Don't buy your tree early, big mistake. I am old and want to get things done ahead of time, have to work at my pace. More presents to wrap. Next year Maybe SILK???? The tree fell down what a mess almost more needles on the carpet than tree.
I just had lunch at a neighbors house, she does sculptor and pretty famous, She invited a lady around the corner named Kathy. I had never met her and we had a lovely lunch. After lunch I noticed Marlyn had a new painting on her wall. I asked Kathy, did Marlyn paint that? She replied no that's a "Katherine Cartwright" painting. I continued to talk. After she had left, I asked Marlyn, This painting is it new? Tell me about it. She said, Kathy painted it. I just didn't put it together. DUH!! I felt so stupid. Anyway I am invited to her studio. I am really excited. You never know who you are talking to around here. **********
Last Night I went to a party at the most beautiful home, an Artist friend Hanna The house was like a fairy tale. Had brought my camera and I couldn't find where they had put my purse and coat, so no photo's. I'd forget my head if it weren't on my neck. Happy Holidays to each and everyone.
