Scavenger Hunt Sunday - The December 23,2012 Edition

Wow, down to the last 2 Sundays of 2012.  Time really does march by so swiftly, I know I say this almost every week, but instead of slowing down, time continues it's rapid pace.  I do believe there is a gene that as you age, time moves've heard that, right?  Anywhooo, with all that said today is Scavenger Hunt Sunday with the lovely Ashley and this week's challenges are:

  • Joy
  • Tangled
  • Silver
  • Guilty Pleasure
  • Angel
Last night I wrapped and wrapped and wrapped and guess what, still not finished.  Wrapping those gifts I am always filled with joy in the giving and hoping there will be joy in the receiving.  I love to add ornaments to gifts to be seen later hanging on their Christmas tree.

Hmm...these two look like sequined boobs from this angle.....

Toby decided this original ball of twine was a ball to play look at this tangled mess.

Don't have much silver in my home...mostly gold.  But I do have these cute little ornaments that have added make-believe snow (since we can't seem to get the real stuff this year)

Oh my, guilty pleasure.  Definitely toffee, homemade, Trader Joe's, or Land's End any and all are delicious and I cannot resist them.  You noticed I mentioned homemade...ate and gone, Trader Joe's ....ate and gone, Land's End, working on that one too.  Can you see all the empty wrappers.

And last, but certainly not least is angel.  I don't know about you but there are many many angels in my life from the caretakers at my sweetie's memory care facility, to my friends that have stuck with me thru the really ugly times in my life, to my dear family and to you my sweet blogging friends, somedays you truly are the angels in my life....angels are all around us.....oh I just saw one, must be my guardian angel.  I keep her active all the time.

That's it for the next to the last Sunday of the year and the last of the Scavenger Hunt Sundays for 2012. It has been great fun and I look forward to more hunts in 2013.  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone!!  Come visit Ashley's blog and see many other delights.

Until next time.....

  5. i love that sweet angel!!! adorable! laughed at the sequined vegas boobs, too. :)

  6. yea, the sequined ornaments do resemble boobs - tehehe! (guess it is our inner adolescent boy coming out). Your packages are beautiful, and while I am so in love with all your decorations I must confess that I would be hard pressed to avoid the temptation to snag a couple of the disco bulbs and wear them out like earrings (lady who worked with my mom did this one year at the little restaurant they frequented daily - on a dare I suspect.... love that my mom had that ornery streak in her).

    Deanna - wishing you the warmest of holiday wishes!
