I like auctions, I like bidding. I should have been a picker…no not a nose picker a person that picks stuff out for antique shops.
Recently I was on a quest. Shiny Brites made a pine cone ornament way back when…probably before WWII. I didn’t have one.
I bid on a group of six pine cones online …then I bid again and yet again. and maybe a few more times…I kinda lost track…then I left the house so I wouldn’t bid anymore. Came back a few hours later and low and behold I was the winning bid.
The blue ones and the red ones are Shiny Brites. The other two multi colored cones were made in West Germany. They arrived in the mail this week…I was so excited…Merry Christmas to me! I am not certain how many color pinecones Shiny Brite made… red, blue and gold for sure.
wanted hoard boxes. Of course for the new ornaments…and the boxes only come in groups of three…and they jumped right off the shelf into my cart at Wallyworld.
Kinda makes you smile doesn’t it? It is all glittery and everything…and the hat matches up no matter which way you put the lid on…idiot proof!
The Cousin’s Christmas Party was Tuesday night, I took pumpkin bread out of the freezer and bought some cookies for the potluck. It was a nice turn out. Aunt Grace is in the hospital so she couldn’t attend, everyone else was there my Dad, Aunt Anna, Aunt Lila and Aunt Sharon are the surviving remnant. Far Guy didn’t attend…too many perfumed women.
I am no further with decorating, but I did get the living room cleaned really good so I might be able to put a few things up sometime soon. I still have time.
