This little artificial tree was collecting dust in the shop, so I brought it on to the back porch yesterday. It still needs something. Funny how I see all that's wrong once I post a picture on my blog. That plastic pot needs to go!
While plundering around it the shop I found another handful of special little ornaments.
another kitty cat for the tree
and the heavy little squirrel that I bought at Restoration Warehouse in Raleigh in the 1990's. That was back in my days as a secretary. There is no such thing as a secretary now, is there?
and the okra pod Santa. I think this came from a booth at the farmer's market.
This year when the tree comes down I'm going to put things away with some order...label the boxes and put my favorite ornaments together.
We went to town this morning. Poppy got a hair cut while I went to Walmart. We both went in CVS to copy a few old pictures. That CVS store always makes me think about Ziggy. Remember Ziggy? Ziggy and I are a lot alike. Two different times now I have walked up to those automatic doors in front of CVS and had to stop because the doors would not open for me. The first time this happened, I felt a little embarrassed. Looking around, I saw there were cars in the parking lot. I thought to myself, maybe the store closed suddenly because of an emergency, but then a lady walked up, walked past me to the doors, the doors opened and she walked in without even slowing down...I went on in behind her. Weeks later this same thing happened to me again. Wouldn't this have been a perfect Ziggy cartoon? The doors opened right up for Poppy and me today. It's just when I'm alone...it's embarrassing!
Not much of a post. Thank you if you're still here. Hope to be back soon.
