In spite of this awful cold, I stood up like a good little soldier and marched off to the Mall this morning..and shopped. 
I didn't have much shopping to do..but the little Great Grands needed to be shopped for...and it was good to see people being polite to one another.  I even saw someone allow another person to take a parking spot...which made me smile as I drove away.  :)

A few snow men I have collected over the years on my sofa table.   Unfortunately the tiny ones are hidden behind the berries...ah well...You've seen snowmen before anyway..right?  Right!

This is before the final touches but you see them a bit better...I mean if you are interested (yawn...)

See that bit of greenery on the stool?  Well, I was going to hang it over the doorway ..but 12 days later and it's still sitting there...soon...yep..soon I will finish up.  Yeeeep...

I LOVE little wagons.  NO idea why, I just do...and there is more around somewhere.....hmmmm..maybe I hung them on the tree...I can't remember..

Darned place looks like a toy store, but the babes will love it.  Can you see the  little teddy bear angel (handmade) on top of the tree.  Sophisticated...that's what I like.  :)
  I bought it many years ago.  A woman in Palm Springs made it...and last year she didn't get her place on top of the tree...but this year...what the heck!!!  (the bear, NOT the woman!)

Ok...this post is quite long enough and it's been a long day and I am off to bed. 
Yesterdays post..or rather last nights...your comments were so kind. 

Hugs..lots of them..

Would you mind...if I just wrote a short story tomorrow?  I promise it won't be too long...
