this and that

aren't these Santa ornaments adorable?
they're handmade
by 
Tammy Morehouse
a friend/neighbor of
Hilary
at
Crazy As A Loom

Tammy is in the process of setting up an Etsy shop
but 
I contacted her through Hilary
you can too




Moving along with this and that
here are the fabulous 
purple 
cashmere
gloves
I know, in this light they look sort of
Mulberry
Violet
a weird hot pink
but 
they're
purple
or as my dad would say
Burple!



and
 here's a photo of my boo boo 

its actually
 over a week old
 that photo

 the redness
 has
 lessened considerably

that adorable pixie
 with me
 is my 'niece' Laura
 someday
 you'll see her on Broadway
 in a show
 but
 this past weekend
 she was on Broadway with me and her Moms
 as we walked off a wonderful lunch

while 
walking
 we saw this woman
 sitting on a
 'boulder' 
painting
its actually
 a traffic 'thing'
 I don't know the proper terminology 
what it does 
is keep the cars a away
 from the traffic island
 see there's one on the other side 



that's it
 sorry
not
 to have
more better stuff
 this Monday

 it was a long long weekend
I did a lot
I ate a lot
I walked a lot
 but
 now 
its back to work
 Monday 
so I gotta get going!

  How was your weekend?
  Did you shop like mad on Black Friday?
  Are you planning on shopping online today?
  Come on tell me all about it!

  2. the gloves are gorgeous!
    even your boo boo is fashionable, it matches the gloves
    you are trending all over the place

    Laura is beautiful, I love her sweet smile
    hopefully she will let Hope be her understudy one day
    that girl is also destined for Broadway
    on Saturday we washed dishes together and I taught her some songs from Hair and Mame
    she sang "ABC took the IRT down to my street USA"
    close enough

  4. I love those ornaments! And the gloves are gorgeous. No shopping, but I got to rock a baby and I have my Christmas decoration boxes piled in the middle of the livingroom. One year they stayed there longer than they were up and out. I fear this might be one of those years again!

    Bob can't keep a secret .. he already bought
    an Ipad 4 ( yes..they have a 4 now ) and the
    new Nikon d3200 with wireless adaptor ALL FOR MOI...

  7. Daryl, hope you had a good Monday. If there is such a thing! Being retired, we tend to not really care what day it is. We generally stay home on the weekends, cause it's so busy.
    We went out on Friday. I got a new iPad!! WooHoo!! It was a mad house out there. Canada usually doesn't usually have Black Friday, but seems like we're picking up the habit!

  8. I love those ornaments, Daryl!
    Your boo boo is looking much better. Sure looked like it was hurting last week.

    Nope, no Black Friday shopping. Almost all is done from the comfort of home.
    Guess I'd better check out the Cyber Monday stuff, before it's history!
    Thanks for the reminder!

  10. Love the Santa Clauses.

    No shopping for me except on Saturday to get a dress for CB Daughter and shirt/tie for Son for the upcoming Holly Ball at the high school. Son has a date who lives an hour away, so he's driving to pick her up and driving her home. Serenity now.

  11. I did not shop until I dropped.
    No long lines for me.
    Instead I went online a bit, and had a cup of tea.

    Hey, I'm a poet ~
