I think Christmas smells like Gingerbread cookies, and dolls. I wonder if the doll manufactures put a special scent in the plastic that make them irresistible.
My grand daughter got a "twirrly skirt" and so the dolly had to have one too!
The twirrly skirt had to have a blouse.
And the dolly had to have some jeans and shirt....

1. It was cold and dark.
2. We had the little children in the stroller and it was cold.
3. There were a lot of people in the city and it was cold.
4. I only had a few seconds to get my gloves off, keep the children in check, keep tabs on where my husband was walking, and it was cold.....get the picture?
The theme of the windows this year was, Curiousier and Curiousier inspired by Lewis Carrolls Alice in Wonderland. This window was all glass and mirrors....so intriguing. Check out that cello, probably special dipped in stainless steal.
Okay, so enough of the windows....Here is my Christmas tree. It is small, but, "Oh so cute!"
See t his little bell garland? I got it at the dollar store...it looks vintage...for $1.00! Love that!
I made these ornaments out of an old songbook. I wish I could say they were my idea, but I saw some similar on some one's blog and did my own version. They are so cheerful!
This is my little snow angel from my good friend Lora for my birthday, and of course she is CREAM! And can you see my Christmas swap table runner, so perfect...and yes it is my only Christmas tree because my tall green tree and my other decorations are in the back of the storage room with 1000 things stacked on top...okay, maybe only 900 things, but still, I am unable to reach it. The little cream tree is on the sofa table and has the perfect place for the presents under the table. Hope all your holiday activities are fun! What are you doing?

You can get these darling cone favor boxes here. Check out all their great paper things...they are a good price, and they ship really fast! Hope your day was a good one.....
~~You ask, "Why am I on the computer today and not shopping?" Because I am not a Black Friday kind of person...nothing is worth that much savings! I may go out later today, but NEVER early in the mornings and NEVER stand in line....it is FREEZING here. Perhaps if I lived in Southern CA!

My friend was sewing on Christmas pajamas for her grand kids the other day....nothing gets me in the mood for Christmas more than the first snow and sewing Christmas pajamas. When my kids were little, I ALWAYS made Christmas pajamas. I miss that.
