Snowmen, Bare Trees and Naked Santa's - Oh My!!

First, I have hooked almost 2 snow people fronts. And at noon today I found some fun yarn to make funky scarfs for them. While these guys looked easy on Fish Eye Rugs Blog - I'm not as skilled at hooking perfect circles. So they might look a little wonky - but time will tell. I am taking a vacation day tomorrow and plan to stop at Michael's to find some fun buttons etc to fancy them up.

Now about the bare tree. Tonight I finally got my tree and it is quite nice (if I do say so myself). But its wet so it is going have to stand bare for a day or so before I can get to the decorating. I am terribly fussy about my tree and I know I drive the guys NUTS at the tree lots. After awhile of rejecting everything they showed me I pointed to this one - "This is my tree". One tiny problem...........it was 9.5 ft and I have 8.5ft ceilings. Hmmmmm "Make it work" I said and they did!

Now - about that Naked Santa. Here he is......... OK I know that this is cheesy and tacky but this shower curtain has hung in my house every Christmas for over 25 years. And it wouldn't be Christmas without it now. I think everyone has some little Christmas thing that lives on way past its cute-date and eventually becomes like part of the family. So I guess that makes it official - Naked Santa is here to stay for a few more years.


  1. Kim, I never know what to expect from your posts but Naked Santa was intriguing!

    You always make me laugh and thanks for this as sometimes the dayjob (as yours is) makes me forget to have a sense of humour!

  2. Very funny. Glad you shared this with us

  3. Love the Santa!! I love traditions, and this is a great one!!
