January 9

Today I went to Walmart to pick up a few things.
I bought some new blue pillow cases to go with the quilt
I bought at auction.
Also bought some salt and pepper shakers to go with my
glasses from the Pioneer Woman Collection.
I read a message on facebook today that made me sad.
Ree Drummond lost her ranch dog Charlie to lymphoma.
She wrote a children's picture book about him.

Rest in Peace Chalie!
Many, many children have checked this book out
at the library where I work.

I love Charlie because he reminds me
of my beagle, Diamond.

Snow Much Fun Collector's Bills

One of my favorite things about using Swagbucks is that I can get rewards for searching the web through their search engine. Every now and then they have "Collector's Bills" worth bonus SB points that you can collect by simply searching the web. Collect them all, and you get an SB Bonus! Once you've collected enough SB, you can redeem them for gift cards to stores like Walmart, Target, and many more!
Here's all the information for this week's Snow Much Fun Collector's Bills:
Search the web through the Swagbucks search starting Monday, January 2nd through Sunday, January 8th, and when you get a search win, you may get a special Collector’s Bill valued at either:
  • 5 SB
  • 7 SB
  • 9 SB
  • 11 SB
  • 16 SB
  • 22 SB
When you get a Collector’s Bill you’ll receive the value of the bill and the bill will be added to your “Collector’s Bills” ledger. Collect all 6 Collector’s Bills and you’ll instantly earn a 20 SB Bonus!
Keep searching til you find them all!

Snow Buddy Tree and Winter Wonder Land

This is my blue and silver little snow buddy tree.
I have collected quite a few pieces after the last through years
we have put it up. We found the cute little snow buddy christmas
skirt at an estate sale. It's really too big for the buffet we have in the
dining room but it works o.k. as far as I am concerned.

This weekend went to take Stephanie and Lily through Tilles Park
which is renamed Winter Wonderland around Christmas.
I only took a few pictures but it gets better every time we go through it.
We took Stephanie through it as a little one and now Lily,
Every night they sponsor a different charity which is awesome.

There were several different themes though out the park and I 
really like all the decorated cottages.

Joining Backyard Neighbor for Blue Monday

Have a Very Merry Christmas!

Christmas Village 2016

This is our Precious Moments Christmas Village made by the
Bradford Exchange. We have been collecting pieces the last few
years. We really need a better way to display it though.
Still working on ideas.
Also I really need a new camera. I have been using my cell phone.
Maybe for my birthday...hehehe
