Tuesday Talk & Holiday Home Tour...


I'm putting these two linkups together cuz, well, it's two days until Christmas Eve & I gotta save time where I can.  Ha!

So, here are some pictures of my home all decorated for the Christmas/Winter season:

This sign never comes down:
#1: I love it.
#2:  It's too big & bulky to move, so I decorate around it.

One corner of the dining room.
The elves sitting on my sign used to be my grandparents',
they have to MUCH older than I.

A closeup of the table setup.

Christmas tree all lit up.

A view of the living room.
Yes, that's Jimmy Fallon & Bruce Springstreen.

Our stockings.
I just got the blue one from some friends
as they didn't want me using the ex-wife's old stocking anymore.  Ha! 

When the last fish died, we were able to get rid of the tank,
which meant more space for decorations.  :)

This is what it looks like to be liked - 
lots of Christmas cards received.

So, how is your dwelling decorated?

& with this post, it will probably be my last until after Christmas.  So, I hope that all of you have a nice Christmas & I'll catch ya on the flip side!  :)


  1. How fun to see all of you pictures for Christmas. Christmas really crept up on me this year and I don't have very many things put up. I'll have to do better next year. Have a Merry Christmas.

    1. We already have the tree down & the Christmas decorations down. My snowmen are still up but that's it. I like it at first but when it all can come down, the hubby & I don't screw around. Ha!

  2. Love your decorations, especially those snowman cups! Looks so festive!
    Merry Christmas!

    1. I got those at a yard sale. I loved them & needed them! Ha! I hope that your Christmas was a good one! :)

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over to Karli (I like the new button, by the way!) &/or Liz.

My five this week are five Christmas gifts that I got for Sunshine.
  1.  Adidas pants.  I had more thing to get her & she mentioned at her gymnastics meeting that she wanted a pair of these.  I got online & picked her up a pair ending my Christmas shopping for her.
  2.  Paper lanterns.  They were on sale one day at The Walmart & I couldn't resist getting them for her to hang in her bedroom.

  3.  A wax warmer & melts.  She has her bedroom upstairs & we don't allow candle burning up there were it cannot be watched.  Plus, with the mess a teenage girl makes, something is bound to catch on fire.  Anywho, so I got her this warmer and some melts that she can use to make things smell all nice & stuff.  :)

  4.  A Pink sweatshirt & matching socks.  I …

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that I got my Christmas cards all out last Friday & that people have already been receiving them!  Now, it's my turn to receive some cards to hang on the front door.  I love receiving them & looking at all the smiling faces & reading the fun "family letters" especially from my aunt, Nellie.  :)

I am thankful...that I got to have a nice evening with my mom & her boyfriend last night.  I had to drop off Sunshine's Christmas gift & pick up her pet carrier so I could take all three cats to the vet this morning so she fed me one of my favorite meals that I never get to have at home - tuna casserole.  & then when I got home, Jill was on her way over so I chatted with her, helped Sunshine with her outfit for tomorrow (she has to dress up as the gymnastics team has a meet this weekend) & then to bed to read & such.

I am thankful...for this coloring book that I got Trouble as part of her Christmas present.  I looked through it yes…

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over to Karli &/or April.

My five this week is ways to stay warm when it's frickin' freezin' in Central Wisconsin.

  1.  Drinking warm beverages - coffee, cocoa, tea.  Add some Rum Chata or Baileys for a lil extra warmth.  

  2.  Set yourself on fire...or sit really close to a fire &/or space heater.

  3.  Take a long hot bath maybe enjoy your warm beverage as like Olaf is doing.

  4.  Bundle up like Randy does in A Christmas Story - "I can't put my arms down!"

  5.  Just stay in your nice warm bed snuggled up with your cats & a good book or Netflix.
