BUSY....BUSY....BUSY

WHEW.....

not only is it the 
MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR....

it's also gotta be

THE BUSIEST TIME....


 ...the perfect gifts to buy


 ...cute little STOCKING STUFFERS

(these are little bottles of HAND SANITIZERS in pretty colored little plastic holders)



 ...candles and scarves and candy....O MY !!


Such a fun time.....








I've found some of the cutest bags and Christmas papers this year....

THIS cute bag came from a store at the mall....and I'm going to use it, tied with a bright red bow...
Around SWEET NOTHINGS,
it wouldn't be CHRISTMAS
without 
PEPPERMINT BARK...

we all love it except MR. SWEET...and he doesn't like MINT of any kind.


Today is the day for.....

WRAPPING....
SACKING....
BOW TYING....
CHRISTMAS STICKERING....
STOCKING FILLING.... 
*****************************************
 
I just turned on CHRISTMAS music...



made my busy self a
CHRISTMASTIME  TRAY...

 FYI:

 This is a sweet music box...

"Joy to the World"

I bought this about 25 years ago when my mama was in the hospital for a little 
"cheer" gift for her.

She had heart surgery and died 5 days later.








Another favorite 
CHRISTMAS mug....

A favorite store-bought CHRISTMAS cookie.....

White chocolate with sprinkles....O HoNeY....
 


All the decorating is finished.....

  12. bj ... you are one AMAZING woman ... I see some things I could get for the Grandsons ... but they want hundred dollar bills in their stocking. Surprise ... they may get nail clippers, hand sanitizer and chap stick. WOW ... what a surprise. As long as they get sugar cookies, they are happy. Thanks for the suggestions. They might not appreciate the little bottles of HAND SANITIZERS in the pink plastic holder. hehe
    Hugs,

    ... bytheway ... I love your Merry Christmas sign hanging in the window.

  13. That's a great reminder! I'd take your survey, but there is not a response strong enough for what I'd like to say. Let's just say that I'll be hopping mad and very tired of the PC crowd having freedom of speech and the rest of us not. Phew! I feel better already...thanks!

  14. Great stocking stuffers! Your vintage music box is beautiful! And those cookies....... oh gosh they are pretty. May I ask who makes them? Are they Pepridge Farms?
