Good morning. Here we are,. only a couple of days from Christmas. How did that happen so fast!!!?????
Are you all ready? I'm not. I have been so busy making earwarmers to fill holiday orders. I have one more to do and then I can wrap the gifts I have purchased for the little ones, and put them under the tree. We have squeezed in some fun things this past week. We went to a birthday/holiday party for a good friend of ours one night. And Thursday night, we went down to Newport Beach to my brother's boat for the Christmas Boat Parade. It was so pretty! It had rained all day, but the night was clear and beautiful. My only photos were taken on my iphone, and posted to Insta Gram.
The other day I popped into one of my favorite haunts, and found something that I knew would be perfect on my wall in the new family room.
When I was walking out, I spotted this "red" purse. I love red, and I gravitate towards it automatically. It reminded me of one that I had in the early 70's. The printed leather, that everyone seemed to have back then. I reached out to touch this purse, and oh my goodness, the leather was so soft. I removed it from the rack where it was held, to further inspect it, and fell in love. It had a Bohemian side sling style, with a long fringe. I opened the purse to see who made it. I know it was real leather though, by touch.
Before leaving, one more little thing caught me eye, that I could not pass up. It reminded me of Big Bear, or course.
Our front porch is also seeing red. These pretty holiday flowers greet our visitors as they come to the door.
Hoping that later tonight, I will find some time to sit down with my laptop, and pay a visit to all of you. I am way behind.
