Hats, Hair and Ornaments
Been trying to make it a point to
wear Santa hats when I go out.
I was going out last night and I had
to decide on which one to wear.
I like the bling shine of this one.
I think Lily liked it too.
But I like the red one the best. The point of
the hat hangs down the side more.
I was going to hear hand bells last night.
I think this makes the 4th yr I have done it.
They come to a church in the next town,
15 minutes away. They play free and you just
drop off a donation. They are amazing.
When I was a baby I had straight black
hair. As I grew and it grew it became
curly and lighter. As a toddler I had curls
all over my head.
But, when I grew more, it got straighter.
Now, I have a natural wave after having
straight as a board hair. I am trying to
learn to embrace that look.
I hate taking selfies....haha
Not sure how all you feel about this..
But I for one think there is a place
and time for a phone and in the
john doing business is not the place!
While I have sat around for the last
couple of days I have been looking
at the tree and really enjoying it.
Being retired as allowed me that choice
where before I was always moving and
grooving and really never enjoyed it
as much as I have the last couple of yrs.
Here are some that bring back memories
and there are a lot cause most of mine
One Christmas working at the TBI all employees
were given this for a Christmas gift. I love it.
We sold these the yr I worked at the
Got this next one from the Governors office
when I attended a Gov. Christmas party.
This one also. It is of the Governors home.
My boss in Photo Services gave me this
I have mentioned it before that the three
stars are for the three section of the state...
West, East and Middle TN.
That is our state flag.
Loving my star. I made this last yr.
5 yard sticks from Lowes Hardware.
Electric staple gun to put it together since
the yard sticks are thin. Then I spray painted
it red, applied a 100 lights to it with
same staple gun, taking care to not staple
through the wires.
I put it up the weekend after Thanksgiving
and as of yet, I have not turned them off.
I ran by Lowes a week ago and grabbed
five more yard sticks and threw one together
for my daughter. They hung it on their front
deck as soon as I took it to them the other
day. Easy, simple and makes a statement.
Here is hoping you are all enjoying the
holiday season. Not pigging out of too
much sweets! I am doing my best to
avoid them as well as stratches but it is
hard and I find myself cheating...
Cheers to you all.
Happy Day to you,

It's wonderful that you have such meaningful ornaments on the tree.
I have the 'goods' to make some sweets, but like you I know I'll cheat. :)

I do remember that star from last year.
Have a fabulous day. Scritches to Dakota and Lily. ♥
Decorations on our trees can hold such special memories.
All the best Jan
