Christmas Playing



Hello, Dear Ones! Well, I thought I would show you my little Christmas breakfast room a little bit more up close and personal...
 I change out this little hutch almost as many times as I change my tiny shoes! :) Well, maybe not that often but you understand! :) This is one of my favorite play toys.


 I shared this snap in my Christmas home tour. You can see on the top my lit garland, the little couple - that's Mr. Precious and me! I'm the one with wings! :) Then I poked up a couple of these black spindly thingys - gotta love 'em.


 Here you can see where my little hutch's wall is in relation to the rest of my house. To the left you can see the door leading into my den and my little Duncan Phyfe table with my Christmas balls under cloches, then you can see the wainscoting of my entry and then the opening into the living room.


 Now we're getting to that up close and personal stuff! I placed a little white bowl atop of some red plates and poked the little bowl full of Santie ornaments! You have to be careful when you poke a little white bowl full of Santies because they are constantly comparing their lists and checking them twice! I tell you, this will keep you up at night with all that talking! :)


 Well, this Santie seems to have escaped the little white bowl, made it to another shelf and hopped into a cranberry glass bowl. Look at his face! He looks a bit confused! Comparing those lists will do it every time, I'm just sure of it!


Here's a little snow globe I've had for years with a Santie on his way. Now he doesn't look confused at all. In the fuzz behind him is another little snow globe with a little tiny snowman in it.



This is a wooden Santie who is hanging down from the lit garland. Now he looks very content. He knew better than to get mixed up in that bowl with the other competitive Santies! :) Just sayin'...


Here we have a little Mr. and Mrs. Claus votive holder. I just think they are as cute as pie, don't you?


 No fun is funner than placing my little faux Chloe Dawn in my happy Christmas hutch! Now don't y'all think I'm confused and in need of medication. I know this is probably a little Scottie, but this little doggy looks so much like Chloe Dawn! I just love it! She's so excited and waiting to hear if she's been naughty of nice from the Santies' lists.


 Now you all know my little tiny granddaughter, Carter, lives far away and won't get to be with us for Christmas. So...I've placed a substitute in her little high chair...Miss Bunny Foo Foo, all dressed up in her Christmas finery. She's cute, she's soft, but she can't say Gwa ( that means Gran in Cartertalk).


Bunny Foo Foo is all ready for me to read her a book. She's picked The 12 Days of Christmas. This book belonged to my daughter when she was a little girl. So I'll gran Bunny Foo Foo and bit and then I'll get on Skype and visit with little Carter! :)

Now this is off the subject, but I've been stubborn and have not wanted to switch over to the New Editor in blogger. I've just been content all of this time with the old version. Well, I've noticed in the past week when I click on your profile pages - things have changed a bit. Didn't think anything of it. 
Well, I went to set up a new post today and my old editor version had changed! I just couldn't work with it. Where did all my little buttons go? I was frustrated and was getting angry! I hate that! Then I went and looked at the New Editor and clicked on it and saved it. I was scared! I was so afraid. Then I realized I could upload a bunch of snaps at one time and then I could just click on the size I wanted and wouldn't have to go into the html and adjust the size myself. The New Editor seems so much easier to work with as a while back when I tried it, I had so much trouble with the spacing. I think they've worked it all out.
You're all probably laughing at me and thinking, this gal is so behind! Well, I guess I am. But I want you to know I've jumped on the New Editor band wagon now. Just sayin...


Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Santa Baby

Santa baby, slip a sable under the tree, for me
I've been an awful good girl
Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight
Santa baby, an out-of-space convertible too, light blue
I'll wait up for you dear
Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight
Think of all the fun I've missed
Think of all the fellas that I haven't kissed
Next year I could be oh so good
If you'd check off my Christmas list
Boo doo bee doo
Santa honey, I wanna yacht and really that's
Not a lot
I've been an angel all year
Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight
Santa cutie, there's one thing I really do need, the deed
To a platinum mine
Santa cutie, and hurry down the chimney tonight
Santa baby, I'm filling my stocking with a duplex, and checks
Sign your 'X' on the line
Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight
Come and trim my Christmas tree
With some decorations bought at Tiffany's
I really do believe in you
Let's see if you believe in me
Boo doo bee doo
Santa baby, forgot to mention one little thing, a ring
I don't mean a phone
Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight
Hurry down the chimney tonight
Hurry down the chimney tonight.
