Bye Bye January

Hello, Dear Ones and can you believe January is coming to her end? Man, what a month for me.
Anyway, I thought I would show you what's been on my January mantel since it's all going away probably today...
 A little background so you won't think I'm totally bonkers! Lots of folks around here keep their Christmas lights up outside, yep, they're still there. Now our lights are all gone and put away mind you, but lots of the neighbors seem to have forgotten Christmas is over. I'm thinking it's maybe because of all of the lovely snow that stays and stays. Anyway...I felt I could have a Christmasy, sort of, display on my mantel for January.
 Now if you know me, you know I love little Glitter houses and after Christmas was over I just couldn't seem to put them all away. So what was I to do?
 Poke the ones screaming, "I don't look so much like Christmas, do I?" up here on the mantel to enjoy their precious glitterness a little while longer.
 Of course my confectionary trees had to take center stage.
 The glitterness continued all across my mantel. I have loved looking up here and seeing the wintry look but it's time to change it all up.
 I took three snaps and combined them just so you could see the entire mantel, sort of, all together.
 But darlings, it's cold outside so we lit a fire. You're probably wondering why my little stacking doll is sitting on the hearth. Well, wonder no more...
We've been babysitting our little Campie. Can't you tell how happy Mr. Precious is? We love this little man so much! He has the sweetest personality and just loves blueberries! :) He goes to the fridge points and says."ooo! ooo!" :) So the undecorating may have to wait a bit longer I guess. Thanks for popping in to see me.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

January

January, sick and tired
You've been hanging on me
You make me sad with your eyes
You're telling me lies
Don't go, don't go

January, don't be cold
Don't be angry to me
You make me sad
Come and see, oh January
Don't go, don't go

Life gets me higher
I can show, I can go
I can wake up the world
Little world
Gotta know you, gotta show you

Sun, like a fire
Carry on, don't be gone
Bring me out of my home
Sweet home
Gotta know me, gotta show me

You've been facing the world
You've been chasing the world

January, sick and tired
You've been hanging on me
You make me sad with your eyes
You're telling me lies
Don't go, don't go

January, don't be cold
Don't be angry to me
You make me sad
Come and see, oh January
Don't go, don't go

Time, it's a flier
Sunny days fly away
English summers are gone
So long
Gotta go up, gotta grow up

Sun, like a fire
Carry on, don't be gone
Bring me out of my home
Sweet home
Gotta know me, gotta show me

You've been facing the world
You've been chasing the world

January, sick and tired
You've been hanging on me
You make me sad with your eyes
You're telling me lies
Don't go, don't go

January, don't be cold
Don't be angry to me
You make me sad
Come and see, oh January
Don't go, don't go
