I can't believe I haven't blogged for THREE whole days!  In fact, I have barely taken time to use my computer.  

It's Christmas Bazaar season and I'm trying to add an item or two to my lost collection of favorite things.  Last night was the Plucky Maidens vintage Christmas.  It was like going to my Grandma's house!  The old plastic Santas that light up.  Old jewelry made into Christmas wall art.  Antique sleds decorated with ice skates similar to blogger Cul de Sac Chronicles ( is making for her front entry.

In addition, since I have just a few weeks left before heading to the sunshine, I've been booking coffee or lunch or BOTH every day!  Hosting a soup supper on Sunday.  Had the handykid take TV off the wall over the fireplace (no easy trick .... eight million wires ...) and move it to the wall in my bedroom.  Now I have to do some touch up painting there.

Love this time of year!


  1. I DO miss the Christmas season in the "weather" just seems wrong to have it be eighty-five degree during this time of year. I miss mainland holidays!

    1. You know you can always land here for a bit of chill! The camo room awaits you!

      I'll see you for New Year's Eve!

  2. Sounds like you're having fun and that's great! Your vintage Christmas show sounds too tempting to resist.

    1. The Plucky Maidens are pretty amazing. They do have a Facebook page and a website, I think. They even plan junk fest trips to Paris, London, etc.!

      I do love having this kind of fun. Although I do need to SLOW down the spending. I'm almost finished here at the condo.

  3. I couldn't post with my wordpress ID for some reason. I've had the same problem on other blogger blogs, so it isn't you. It says I don't own my identity. So I'm posting with a google account.

    My ice skates are not here yet, but they are on the way.

    Mostly, I wanted to say how much I love that photo. They could not be any cuter. I would enjoy the vintage Christmas show. Sounds like fun.
