Little things

Christmas is getting closer, and I have to say, I’m really getting into the spirit this year. I’m not sure why, but I’m rolling with it.

It started with this little guy…

A couple of weeks ago, he popped up in my facebook feed, the creation of the crafty lady who made my adorable couch sloth. After I bought the sloth, I started following her on FB because her creations are just so darn adorable.  And as soon as I saw this little Grinch, I just had to have him. Luckily, she had a craft show not far from Mom’s, so he now lives with me!

Then this week, I met up with the lovely Aneesha for dinner

And afterwards we did a little shopping. Since I have all my Christmas gifts taken care of, it was mostly shopping for me!

And that means plants!

It’s just another Christmas cactus, but have you ever seen a colour like it? All pinky-peachy-yellow? It reminds me of my Chicago Peace rose.

And last… before we left the mall, we stopped in at the Lego store, just to marvel at all the amazing creations. But right in the middle of the store, they have bins filled with body parts (sounds terrible, I know), so you can make your own lego men. I just HAD to make me and Dave.

Yes… I have a sword… they didn’t have any cats…

I was going to wrap them up and give them to him for Christmas… but I just couldn’t wait!

What little things are making you smile?

  1. I had that color of Christmas cactus back when we were in Florida. A friend gave me a cutting off her grandfather’s plant that he had since HE was first married. We figure the thing was almost 100 years old. She called it “salmon”.

    I love Dave’s Lego doppleganger.
