Have You Finished Your Christmas Shopping?

Well, if not, you aren't alone. Santa hasn't finished either :)

I don't know why but I love this Target commercial.

Christmas Decorations and Monday Mosaics

Slowly but surely the Christmas decorations are appearing in our house.


Before the cold drizzle arrived yesterday, we made a quick trip to the Sertoma tree lot.
Christmas Tree
Once upon a time like back in the late 70's, we would search the woods at my aunt's house for a cedar tree. Much cheaper than Christmas trees purchased from tree lots. I loved the smell of cedar in the house. Although trying to decorate the tree was a pain .....literally....hands were easily scratched from cedar leaves.

Those days are long gone. Today it is a quick trip to a lot for a North Carolina fir. More costly but...

much easier on the hands.

Now to get the lights and decorations on the tree.

For Monday Mosaics at Little Red House I'm sharing decorations from past Christmases.

Oh, To Be Santa

While Christmas shopping this weekend, I came across this t-shirt:
Be Like Santa

Never really thought about it, but Santa has a great job. Sweets and one work day a year. Oh, what a life that would be.
Besides shopping we spent part of the day enjoying the sun and crisp air walking in downtown Greenville, SC.







Speaking of sweets.....Have you tasted these at Starbucks?
Cranberry Bliss

Very tasty! Just this week I saw recipes for this posted on Your Homebased Mom and Good Things Catered. So guess what I tried today?
Cranberry Bliss Bars

Oh, yes it was well worth the effort.
