I pray that everyone had a beautiful Thanksgiving. The weather was lovely here, family were all here, and food was plentiful. Praise God!
Kim (of Prims by Kim) commented on my last post about how trimming the Tree is the least of her worries. She says that it's keeping her cat & kiddo away from it will be the real trick. Reminds me of a story...LOL.
When we were young parents of three growing daughters we had a live tree for Christmas. We also had a cat.. a crazy, goofy, thought-he-was-a-spy-kitty, cat. He would sneak around on the prowl for some unsuspecting leg to stroll by and he would 'attack'. He didn't hurt anyone, just startled us mostly.
I was trying one morning to get everyone ready for work & day care. 'Chaos in the country' best describes the scene. Finally we are nearing departure when we hear that spy kitty come galloping across the room, hopped up on a chair and did an amazing feat of jumping smack dab into the middle of the poor Christmas Tree. He looked like a flying squirrel with his front and back legs all splayed out.
My three girls & I were literally at the door and turned to witness this. The cat, the tree, the ornaments, etc. went over, rolled off the table it was on, and flipped in the air. Everything crashed to the floor. The cat screeched and ran off.
I just shuffled my girls out the door and left the mess.
I don't recall that cat ever attempting to attack a Christmas Tree again.
For your viewing pleasure..
This is Lizzy Jo. Her listing will start tomorrow night (Mon.). She is one of my Iddie Biddie Dolls. Her Goose Gretchen is her feathered friend.
Megan is a sweetie with the cutest dress. I found some fabric that is actually quilted homespun plaids, very old looking. She's holding a Candy Cane that can easily be removed following Christmas. She would look prim and cute all year round.
Mrs. Claus is an elegant lady. Randy did such a beautiful job w/ this doll. The detail is amazing. He's a great sculptor.
Little Elmira June has a Crow tucked under her arm. They are 'buds'.
Nelda Sue will begin her stay at eBay on Tuesday evening. Another doll that you can display during the Winter Holidays, then remove the Christmas Tree & Cardinal and she's a prim darling. Her Ornie says, "Let the Church Arise".
Thanks so much for dropping by. Come back soon! We will miss you.

Have you put your Christmas tree up yet? So many people put theirs up on the Friday after Thanksgiving. Not us! Jordan (oldest granddaughter) reeeeeeeally wanted to, but we worked on dolls instead.
We're going to our youngest daughter and her sweet hubby's house tomorrow to trim their tree. We'll get ours up soon!
I love this season. I love the crisp, cold air. I love the skeletal trees and white skies. I love the Christmas lights & decorations. I love that my Daddy is with our Lord & Savior doing the ultimate Christmas celebrations! Still miss him though.
God Bless you all!

I thank you Lord God for our country. The United States of America always has been YOURS God. My prayer is that it will always remain YOURS.
Hope you all have a lovely day with Family & Friends. Hope you eat too much, laugh too much, and love enough for the whole year ahead.
Georgia Cat has a lovely message on her little Ornie, "Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God." Rom. 10:17. Her dress is a really beautiful Blue Toile, and her little friend, Crow is in her kitty arms.
Santa Cat is the Cat of the Month for December. He is absolutely hilarious and darling. He is all dressed up like Santa... I tried to talk him out of it, but he just begged for a month to 'be' Santa, so I relented.
Shay Cat is all decked out for the holidays. Her dress & pinafore are made from some really cute Christmas-y fabric & she holds a Christmas Stocking just chock full of goodies.
Sparkle Snowgirl is my favorite Snowgirl that I have made this year. She is just beautiful and she sparkles!!! Mica flakes all over her!
God Bless you all and your loved ones. Enjoy the day!

It snowed here overnight... just a dusting for us, but areas close to us received much more.
I have listed two of my little Snowgirls on Etsy.
This is Minuet. She is really elegant & beautiful in person. Photos can never do her justice.
Little Serendipity Snowgirl is just darling in her Rose colored Organdy gown. I'm so partial to this tiny princess.
I hope you'll take a peek at my Snowgirls. They love attention.

My Father In Law is currently in the hospital, so we would appreciate any prayers for him. He had a knee replacement surgery, but has had problems w/ blood pressure, etc. He's in ICU right now, and he should have been home. Bless his heart.
Angelle Cat is a sweetie. I made her little Apron from a portion of a Vintage Dresser Scarf w/ Blue Embroidered Flowers. Her Ornie says, "Love Lifted Me, Love Lifted Me. When Nothing Else Could Help, Love Lifted Me." Just love that old hymn.
Sherise Cat exclaims, "Bless the Lord, Oh My Soul". I just love her Slip, it has lace at the hem.
Raewyn Dawn is a little Raggedy with an Ornie that says, "It Is Well, It Is Well, With My Soul". I named her after one of my buyers who is such a nice lady.. I just love her name.
Finally Topaz is wearing a Brown dress and grubby Osnaburg Apron. Her Ornie says, "I Can Only Imagine"... of course it's from the Song by that title. Every time I hear it I think of my Daddy... I miss him so much.
Hope everyone is enjoying the weather today, no matter what it's like where you live. I sold a doll to a buyer in Latvia.. I had to look it up to find out where it is... in Eastern Europe, across a Sea from Sweden. From what Wikipedia showed, it looked beautiful.
God Bless you all,

Wanted to share my newest Snowgirl & Randy's newest doll.
This is Minuet Snowgirl. She is listed on eBay right now. I made her dress from a Vintage Lace Baby Dress. I think she is just so elegant and beautiful. Check out the listing by clicking on her name.
Randy made this delightful Scrooge. I think he is absolutely handsome. He has real (metal frames, plastic lenses) eyeglasses, and a leather bound Ledger. Check him out!
Randy also made this darling Maude Cat & her Mousie. The Ornie says, "Got Mouse?".
God Bless you all!
