Our very good friend Joey Stains left an interesting comment on yesterday's post about the sandwich/sand wedge issue. He said, "If you want to be TOTALLY confused, the local pub right by our house is called 'The British Open Pub' and on their menu they call the sandwiches, 'sand wedges'." Wow! That is confusing! We'll have to drive out there, putter around a bit, and find those sand wedges! Hee hee hee! (Marvin might like that one.)
We already showed you our outside Christmas tree and our Patriotic Christmas tree. Storm said I should show you our two smallest Christmas trees! They're both in the living room, with the Patriotic tree. Here is the very smallest one - it's on the fireplace mantle, above Mom's Folk Art Nativity quilt:
It just has some cute red berries (they have to be out of Zim's reach, as he loves fake red berries!) and raffia garland. Mom paired it up with a tiny pottery crèche and some pottery angels. Here's a close up of those:
We have another small Christmas tree on top of the TV cabinet. It's filled with tiny wooden ornaments - angels mostly from Germany and a few carved olive wood Nativity scenes from Bethlehem. A couple other angels are at the base of the tree, along with a little music box from Germany and a little thing that spins around if the candles are lit. As Zim explained last year, Mom rarely lights the candles; her larger spinny thing caught on fire one year. We'll show you that one later!
Here's a close-up of the music box.
It plays "Silent Night". Or perhaps "Stille Nacht", since Mom bought it in Germany. Hee hee hee!
On that note, I wish you love,
