So I had to get up out of my rocking chair and work--
It is nice in a way--that something 'forces' me to get out of that chair--
cause for the last two days I have worked on more Christmas decorating--
Got the old wood cupboard about done--
How do you like the bottom shelf????
it is my 'candy' shelf--
It is hard though to really find just red and white candy--
at least around here!!!!!
then I worked on the little childs cupboard--
Here is my two favorite Angels on the top of it--
and the heart Christmas sign is one that I painted many years ago--
Here is the top half of the cupboard--
Hitty got moved up and got her palor all decorated for the holidays too--
Here is her tree all decorated and look at the gifts under that tree!!!!!!
and she even has her stockings hung at the fireplace!!!
Years and Years ago--lil sister and I made shadow boxes and we put these fireplaces in them--
I got rid of the shadow box for some reason a long time ago--
but that fireplace is a favorite of mine--we did the chenille rope and tiny poms on the fireplace back then too--
and at the top of the tree we each had back then, was this angel--
she is very small and is just a bead with some lace glued under it for her dress with some wings and a halo--she is also a favorite of mine at this time of the year!!!
Oh and did you notice the little mouse at the bottom right hand corner of the fireplace--
that was glued on too in the original making of the fireplace!!!

I did get some work done toooo--
got another 'tiny' mitten knitted and a sock knitted!!!!
got the second angel redwork piece done--
now to decide how to finish them?????

OK--we are all waiting to see who 'wins' the M & M challenge--
First though==no body guessed my favorite--
some were close with the original ones--but I think I really usually got the peanut nut ones--
but now I am hooked on the pretzel ones--I get my sweet and salty fix at the same time!!!!
I rarely eat them though as I am very much against food coloring-----
Ok==here goes---I am drawing the name now--
And the winner is:::::::Sunny---oh my--
what a funny thing that is--my post is about the sun and "Sunny" wins--way to go Sunny!!!
Oh and I have not heard of the cinnamon ones--but there is coconut ones I had forgotten about--
don't care for them--too sweet for me!!!
and Miss Gracie!!!
