Advent Calendar 2016 -Day 8

A smart idea. Turn wine glasses into Reindeer and Rudolph candle holders for the holidays. Granted the fatter one looks more like Chip 'n' Dale from Disney.

Advent Calendar 2016 - Day 7

Today's TRUE Advent Calendar post.

  There is something familiar about this tree stand yet I can not remember where I have seen it before. I do not know if I had one like this when I was real small or if my grandmother had one but I know I've seen one before in person and it is now bugging me.

A cinnamon Winter Solstice star to help make your home smell more nice and festive.

Advent Calendar 2016 - Day 5

  I want this post to a very nice one because of my long absence from my blog and Advent calendar. I may have a few days where I will be able to write a post every day and then try to schedule future ones for later.

 I think this is special. The Italian artist  Giovanni Battista Salvi Madonna and Child. I can not find the year in which this was painted but it is a sweet and gentle depiction of the Holy Mother and Child.

Tea for Tuesday #22

A perfect quote by C.S. Lewis about tea and books. This coming year I think I may buy The Chronicles of Narnia or at the very least The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.

The Ace of Spades
was the last card
Lemmy played.

A good-bye
to Hawkeye
from Trapper John.

This Will Be an Everlasting Love
from Unforgettable too.

Spiders returned to Mars
Ziggy truly became Stardust in the sky
and the world cried.

The Dogma of Gruber and Snape
left A Promise of A Little Chaos
but they left us with a Sense and Sensibility
as we had A Song of Lunch
with Love Actually.

Then an Eagle took flight
into another Tequila Sunrise

As The American Breed
decided to Bend Me, Shape Me
Then told me to
Step Out of Your Mind.

While a Mott
decide to go with
All the Young Dudes.

A Tower of Power
had Squib Cakes
with a Soul Vaccination
that was Sparkling in the Sand.

Dallas said he would be
A Long Time Gone
on Wooden Ships
Helplessly Hoping
to see
Suite: Judy Blue Eyes.
