Hello...and Ho-Ho-Ho...How could this be? The calendar turned to the last page....this could only mean one thing....Yes, it means that December is upon us...and once again, I am running around like a frenzied elf who has lost his candy canes. I have not decorated my house as yet...don't tell anyone, but I still have not packed away my Halloween...yes it is in a pile in the spare room.
Today as I wondered what to blog about...I visited a cabinet that houses some of my Santas. My thought was that I would get in the mood...Bingo! Above is a Santa that I made in 1999.
Here is merry band of music makers. If you look closely...you might notice that the little fellow with the squeezebox seems to have hit a sour note as the cymbals player next to him is casting him a dirty look of disappointment. These little guys are performing daily here in FunTown and twice on Saturdays. They do a great jazzy version of "Oh Tannenbaum."
Santa is happy to discover that it is December, as you can tell by his expression that he is dreaming of cookies and hot cocoa. Take a gander at "Snitzer" the reindeer...he is not too thrilled, as he is driving solo. I read in the "Hip-Hip Hooray Gazette"...our little hometown newspaper in Funtown...that Snitzer lost a bet and now he has to go it alone. Poor Snitzer...these holidays are exhausting for many of us.
Little Snowflakes is enjoying his treasured trophy that he won at the Funtown Snowball Toss-Off. He is acting a bit show-offy...not only is he a champion...but he has finished his Christmas shopping. Lucky him...
Miss Jingle Belle is getting last minute alterations on her ball gown...She is a contestant in the "Little Miss Sugar Plum Beauty Pageant." She has been practicing her baton twirling routine for the talent competition. She isn't very good at the catching portion of her routine...so she is hoping to gain extra points with her fancy dress. She has been baking sugary cookies for the judges to butter them up. This is not the way to win the "Miss Congeniality" contest.
This our front door. My husband Tim decorated our front door yesterday. My poor Apple Fan is in desperate need of some "sprucing up"...literally...
Off I go...back to my sewing room. I hope that all of you are "decking your halls."
Have silly "merry and bright" fun, Jody
