Good Morning, Juanita! Just wanted to clarify about my tree & ornaments. Not all of them are handmade, but all of them are prim! LOL! I did make a lot of them, like the sheep, stuffed stars, wooden flags, etc. But the wooden and wire snowflakes were bought, and all the rusty bells were bought. Then there are some wooden stars and some resin stars.
I even made some ornaments out of small jello molds. hehehe! I had planned on having a big kitchen tree, and I might one of these days, but for now I have the small one with cookie cutters on it. So the jello mold ornies will move to the kitchen one of these years!
I will try to do the Christmas Questions for tomorrow's post.
Have a great day!

Hi Juanita,
I loved your answer to my Christmas wish post...Being it was the same as mine! I woke up with a wrenched neck from steam cleaning my floors-(company is a coming!)
Where is a housekeeper when you need one? :)

Juanita - the easy bake oven was my favorite gift too!!

Kindra said...

That questionare was fun to read! I had a generic garage sale version of easy bake oven...but it was still fun. Is it bad to get one for my son for Christmas, so mom can play with it? LOL

Kath said...

Hi Juanita!
LOL @ the vacuum cleaner!!
I once received a THIGH MASTER from my wonderfully 'thoughtful' hubby ...he gave me that ever so thoughtful gift me on VALENTINE'S DAY...of all days. LOL!

Loved reading all your answers!

You deserve that award!!
Your "kindheartedness" shines brightly, girl! :)
