Merry Christmas To All!

And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow
Stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so?
It came without ribbons. It came without tags.
It came without packages, boxes, or bags.
And he puzzled and puzzled 'til his puzzler was sore.
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before.
What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store?
What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more?

Did you miss your favorite Christmas Classic?

Then check out this website:

I'm seeing lots of regular TV show episodes listed like Bewitches, All In The Family & Happy Days. Come on, grab a cup of cocoa and sit a spell...(and yes, the Beverly Hillbillies are there too!)

Merry Christmas to all!

Ok, you know I didn't make these up. I got them from my daily email called Mark's Musings. Click here if you want to subscribe. [selected from the Washington Post Style Invitational]

Wine Bottle Cozy - a work in progress

I'm not quite done with this yet...still need to add some grape leaves and some trailing vines. And it looks to me like someone grabbed that sweetest grape at the botton and ate it! Just might have to add 1 more grape!

Birdhouses Galore!

Wow...I've just finished listing a ton of birdhouses in my Etsy & 1000 Markets stores.
I still have 7 more to list! But no more tonight.
These are fun to make. I do a step at a time. Knit bases. Knit roofs. Full (felt). Shape. Air dry. Needle felt. Pick twigs for perch. Stuff. Add ribbon. Take pics.
19 times over. No, really. Do each step 19 times before going on to the next!
Please, if you know a bird lover or a felt lover or a Christmas ornament nut, send 'em over!
