Look at Daughter's new custom skates!!! She wears red ones for coaching and when she went to have a fitting for a new pair noticed that Riedell can now put cut out designs in the leather. Nothing but a kitty would do for my cat crazy daughter. All she needs is a blade fitting and these cool kitties will be ready to go.
I also need to say thank you to Mere who sent me this adorable itty bitty monster that a friend of hers knit. I just love knitted stuffies. She looks very sweet nestled among the baubles and lights.
Speaking of the tree, The Mister declared it drab this year so we set out to Ikea yesterday with hopes to pick up a few new things to jazz it up. What I discovered was that Christmas is officially over at Ikea. I had to dig through the leftovers to find a few of these crocheted stars. I think the problem is that I usually tinsel the tree but this year I couldn't find any tinsel so it's not shimmering like it should. Oh, well....I'll be taking it down soon enough and the upside is that I won't be vacuuming up silver stuff all winter.
Love your new ornaments, especially the monster! I have a confession. I’ve used the same tinsel for AT LEAST 35 years!!! Probably longer. Since I can’t find it in the stores anymore I’m really glad I recycle it. My family always makes fun of me for taking it off every year. It’s even been stored in the same brown paper bag all of these years! I’m not cheap, I’m frugal. :-). And...I love your daughters new skate boots. Perfect for a kitty lover.ReplyDelete
The boots are really cool! We don't use tinsel but I don't think I saw any in the stores this year, either. And the happy little monster is really very adorable!ReplyDelete
Those skates are awesome! I haven't put up the tree yet - Maybe I'll do that while Dave is at work today.ReplyDelete
