Good morning, lovely bloggers. What a pretty, sunshiney, COLD day we have here today. I will welcome the cold as long as the sun shines. The past few days of cold and rain have not been good for these old bones.

Are you ready for Christmas? I have everything except a present for the Hubs. He is one of the hardest people in the world to buy for because he really doesn't want or need anything. He's one of those people who, if he needs it, he goes and gets it. We are both at a point in our lives that we honestly don't need anything. But like I told him yesterday. I love giving gifts and to be honest, I like getting them; not quite as much as I like gifting, but who doesn't like have a present to open.

I finally got all the decorations up and out that I'm going to do. Since it's only 6 days until Christmas, I think it's about time. I have presents to wrap, mostly for the grandkids. I LOVE buying gifts for them.

This is a photo frame that I received for Mother's Day this year. As you all know by now, I'm not the speediest person on the planet and I have just now gotten photos in it. The Hubs is faster hanging things than I am getting them ready.

All my grandbabies, even Jellybean. *smile*

Below are some of the decorations on my tree. As you can tell, the snowman love is very evident on the tree.

These are some ornaments I cross stitched 30 years ago. I didn't realize it had been that long. I love all things Disney also and these are so precious to me.

There are actually 12 of them including, Mickey, Bambi, Pluto, etc. These are all done on hardanger over 1. That was when I could still see to work on hardanger.

My snowmen and Santa collection.

And finally, the Christmas cards from my kids. I love them.

I hope each of you have a wonderful day. Thanks for stopping by.



  1. You do love your snowmen Sharon dont you?!!! Hope you have a wonderful christmas. I have bought the last present and have only to wrap it now. We are just about ready to go!

  2. And thank you for sharing your Christmas collections and Christmas memories.

  3. Yesterday we had a little snow near the foot of Mt. Hood [which had a bit of a blizzard]. Maybe the snow will make it to your house by Christmas so that you can make more snow people, Sharon:) I still have a few gifts to wrap and am crocheting a wonky Santa sock for a friend...and am still addressing Christmas cards, but am enjoying the process. Joy to you and yours! xx from Gracie

  4. I love that terracotta star - and if you like snowmen, come on up to Wisconsin! We're having a blizzard tomorrow. :)

    That card from your pregnant daughter is adorable.

  5. Oh, we love snowpeople too! Quite a lovely collection you have there! Merry Christmas!

  6. I'm a sucker for anything snow!

    Can you believe I still don't have my decs up! I think this is the latest I've ever been with them.

  7. Happy Christmas Eve...

    Happy Christmas...
