O Christmas Tree ...

with all my lovely handmade stitchers gifts on it and some old favourties too, the memories when i get some of these out make me both smile and feel sad, i think we all have Christmas decorations that have been coming out for donkeys years and no matter how much we think as we put them away 'these wont be up next year' they are LOL. Look who wants to be a xmas decoration and has decided the best place to take a nap is under the tree waiting for Santa - you've got a bit more of a wait Midge till your stocking get filled.

Advent Exch Day 8 and DD was here to help me open todays gifts. She shook, sniffed, felt and still couldn't decide what they might be ... Kathy has sent these wonderful charms and beads, i love them. Jorja's clue was 'Tuck this in your purse for a boring waiting room' I had guessed it might be a little kit. Thank you ladies for the lovely gifts i am opening each day, lots more surprises still to come

Hope you all have a good weekend and don't get crushed in the crowds if out shopping for more Christmas gifts and goodies, and remember 'the customer (you) is always right' and it doesn't cost anything for the shop assistants to be polite and have manners even when they are busy ... thats what i told DD before she left for her shift in Tesco ...

Aren't the advent exchanges great Julie, I'm really enjoying opening my gifts every day. Like you I received two lots so it's double the fun! You've had some great gifts.

Love the little charms, you are having fun with this exchange.

Have to agree with your sentiments to your DD, it costs nothing to be polite but oh what a difference it can make when you are this side of the counter and you get greeted by either a smiley happy face or a miserable one.

love the picture of Midge under the tree, he is remarkably similar to our cat..(who got very confused yesterday when I moved the furniture and put the tree up)...lol
hope my DD has her smiley face on in Superdrug today!!!

Beautiful tree Julie. We've got ornies with memories attached too: my favourite is the loo roll Santa DS made when he was a tot, a bit bedraggled looking now but I won't throw it out. :0)
Lovely gifts too.
