Yesterday we had doctor's appointments. We both have the same doctor and since he is in a rural area, about a twenty minute drive from here, we almost always go together. This saves gas and allows me to keep up on hubby's health. Did you know a doctor can't divulge anything in a medical record without permission, not even to a spouse?
Anyway, we were both fine, except for my ear infection. Our blood pressure and all that tricky stuff was all under control. So, after making an appointment for six weeks, we left and headed home. On the way is this little store that always has the most wonderful things all year 'round. Hubby pulled into the driveway and we headed inside to look around. Their Christmas decorations and ornaments are always beautiful and reasonably priced. I buy many gifts at this store.
Well, lo and behold there are Santas galore, (Anni, you would have loved it) snowmen, snowladies, Christmas bears, reindeer and every other Christmas decoration you would ever imagine. They had yule logs with cardinals that were tealight holders. Near the back of the store we found a shelf of Christmas angels and fairies. These are some of my favorite things and hubby knows it.
Here is what he got me. She is divine. Another to add to my collection of very special angels.
Isn't she both beautiful and unique? I must put the year on the bottom so I can remember exactly when hubby gave her to me. She is polyresin, but looks just like wood, even when you are up close. The bottom of her skirt, her neckline and cuffs look exactly like tree bark. She is holding a birdhouse in one hand and a cardinal in the other. Hubby also knows I love cardinals and birdhouses. So he made a very good choice. I'm delighted with her and gave him a big kiss.
He also bought me a snowman. In fact, he bought four of these. One for my daughter and my mother and two for me. They are beautiful also.Can you see the sparkles on the hat and the ends of the scarf? They will look lovely on my Christmas tree next year. Since we didn't put one up this year, I hung Frosty from the doorway. He looks pretty good there.
Mom loved hers. We gave it to her early as we won't be at her house this year when she has Christmas dinner. She always has her big dinner near New Years so all of the kids and grandkids can go to their relatives on the opposite side of the family for Christmas Day. She is a special lady.
I wish all of my friends and readers a safe and Merry Christmas. May the Light of Christmas shine in your hearts and in your homes. ~Blessings, Mary~
