The entertaining and friendly type. They are especially attuned to pleasure and beauty and like to fill their surroundings with soft fabrics, bright colors and sweet smells. They live in the present moment and don´t like to plan ahead - they are always in risk of exhausting themselves. The enjoy work that makes them able to help other people in a concrete and visible way. They tend to avoid conflicts and rarely initiate confrontation - qualities that can make it hard for them in management positions.

Renna, I thought you might enjoy this 550 piece jigsaw puzzle , but that may just be because I know I would like it. As a matter of fact, I'm actually getting this for Christmas! : )
I know you are doing your own felting, but I still wanted to give you this finished product.
For Marilyn, I got these picnic-basket-shaped collapsible baskets and covers; so useful and so fun.
And I can't explain it, but this vintage cast iron soap dish with Savon de Marseille soap just kept ending up with you.
but your feathered friends should appreciate this Solar Sipper bird bath that keeps water ice-free without electricity.
And Susan, we barely know each other, but these things appealed to me for you:
This Kim Lawrence sculpted one piece nativity scene with an inlaid crystal accent in the cross .
and this ruffled laundry bag that looks like a party dress.
(This gift I probably chose more because of Caroline, honestly...)
That's all, folks. Next year, I'll know everyone better, and start my shopping earlier. This year, remember: it's the thought that counts!!!
The details are exquisite:
"For unto us a child is born. Unto us a Son is given, and his name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace."
Please join Things in my House Thursday! You likely have all new things for show and tell! : )

So, some things never change (all...enjoyed the proceedings...), and some things just disappear - - - 'decency's sake' ...

Yes, of course we still think she's adorable..... but first haircuts often signal the end of babyhood, not a phase I like to see ending:

This is so simple and easy to display; it's more vibrantly colored and nicer in reality vs. pictures.
Don't quite know how I ended up with these or who they came from, but I love these very old, tiny matchbox Santas.
Another, even tinier, nativity scene.
Little Mary's reindeer handprint.
Lion and the Lamb, by Limoge.
I love this house with lights in the windows and snow on the roof.
I hope you enjoyed these simple decorations so far, and now, my very very very favorite decoration:
I hang this up in the kitchen before anything else, and at first it serves a good purpose..... but as the continued turkey/ham/cookie/cake/fudge aromas permeate the house, I can waddle right past it without a sideways glance.
Please join me for TIMHT ; show and tell something from your house - Christmas-related or not. Post, link, visit, comment. It's fun!
