More Christmas decorations, and something I never thought I'd say to my husband

This lovely Christmas tree candle holder thingy I got from Target last year...I almost put it back on the shelf a couple different times during my shopping trip because especially during Christmas I have a really hard time spending money on myself. But I just loved it and if I remember correctly, Vince was with me and made me buy it! Serious, it's true. Just ask him if you don't believe me.

This angel is very, very special to me. My grandma bought two of these at a craft fair, one for me and the other for my sister when we were kids, and every year we put them on her tree. It is made of foam balls, toothpicks, stick pins, and angel hair and is falling apart. It is probably worth about 25 cents....but to me it is priceless.

And this is Mr. Snowman! I found him at a craft show, and fell head over heals in love with him!! Isn't he just the cutest thing ever?!~

And now for the thing that I never thought I'd say to my husband...
"Honey, your Avon order came today."


  1. I DON'T think you wanna open the 'spouse' box... V

  2. I love that Santa figurine it reminds me of the Santa from Rudoplh the Red Nosed Reindeer. Oh when my hubby is with me shopping he would make me buy all sorts of things - he loves to buy me things, I'm the one saying no.

  3. My dear ,
    May this Christmas be filled

    With happiness in all that you do

    And may this joy continue
    The whole year through

    Wishing you a Blessed Christmas
    And a Happy New Year!

    God's Christmas Present

    Let me tell you the story
    Of the sweet Jesus Christ,
    Who brought heaven to earth,
    One cold winter night.

    As planned by His Father,
    A long time ago,
    In the form of a babe,
    He came down below

    His divine mission
    Unknown at the time,
    Was later revealed,
    When God felt inclined.

    The day the sweet Lord
    Was nailed to that cross,
    Was the day that God showed,
    Mankind was not lost.

    By the Son's grief and pain,
    Man could be forgiven,
    And God gave to man,
    A vision of heaven.
    But thick in his thinking,
    And blind in his heart,
    Man missed the Lord's meaning,
    And remained in the dark.

    Thus, each year at Christmas,
    The tale is retold,
    And man is reminded,
    Of Jesus Christ's role.

    Access to heaven,
    God's gift to man,
    God's Christmas Present,
    The Start of His Plan!

    blessings ,

  4. I LOVE the Rudolph movie....have to watch that with the kids this week! In between showings of Elf, that is :)

    It's so hard having husbands who WANT us to spend money, isn't it?

    Oh, and hon.....the spouse box is wide open :)

  5. Thank you, Violeta, bless you and yours this Christmas!!
