All Clean

No.  My eating isn’t exactly all clean.  I am all clean, my clothes are all clean, and my dishes are all clean.  It is a very good feeling.  My ‘forced captivity’ allowed me to decorate for Christmas, and I will be sharing pics with you between now and Christmas.  I have loved Christmas ornaments since I was a little girl, especially the sparkly ones, and so I started collecting them as an adult, so about 30 years worth of ornaments–yikes!  And unlike my friend Lori, most of mine are glass.  I still have one from my childhood, so a 50 year old glass ornament!  I probably have a couple more that are that old because for a while my mom collected antique ornaments, and then she gave them to us kids.  I really like birds, so a lot of them are birds.

Can you see the ‘Kliban cat’ stalking the bird?

The great blue heron next to the giant fish cracked me up.

I love this Canadian goose.  I got it up in Tahoe, and I always like to feed the geese when I am up there.  I love the detail on these two cats.

Snow’s almost gone

And some of us are enjoying the ‘new’ old chair a bit too much

I’m off!  Out of the house for the first time since Sunday!  Gonna get in a workout with Vicky–YAY, and maybe sing at our church Christmas dinner tonight–haven’t been able to practice–aaargh!  I’ll let you know tomorrow.

  1. Love the Christmas look!!!

    I have a challenge for you: I want you to do a video where you SING!! Please please pretty please?! For me? 🙂

    Love your ornaments – I think glass ornaments invoke a kind of notalgia. So pretty!

    • Jillie, that is a BIG challenge for me! I think I’d almost rather do one of those ‘exposed’ blogs! Its weird that I can sing in front of a big crowd, but I am embarrassed to sing in front of a few people…but I’ll think about it.

    • Hey Pubsgal! Glad you got the ‘Kliban cat’ reference. That is one of my oldest ornaments too–probably got it when I was 30, so 25 years old! I was a big Kliban fan. Even though I had pet mice, for some reason I LOVED the guitar playing cat singing ‘Love to eat them mousies, mousies what I love to eat. Bite they tiny heads off, nibble on they tiny feet.’ Can you believe I still have that memorized after all these years??

  2. I love our Christmas layout – it makes me feel so good to come here!

    Your ornaments are beautiful and I love that you make little scenarios with the heron and fish, etc. Love your sense of humor!

    Glad you and everything around you are clean – there’s nothing like hot running water to make everything better.

    And the dogs – cuddling! LOVE IT!!!

  3. I love that your dogs cuddle together! One time a dog I was fostering very quietly got into Cecilia’s bed with her. They cuddled for about a 2 minutes before Cecilia was done. I always thought that if I found a dog she would cuddle with, I’d have to adopt that dog! But she perfers being an only child.
