We made it home, safe and sound! Let me tell you how nice it is to be be at home!

There was a stack of mail to be sorted thru, but I couldn't wait to open the two packages that had come for me. I had purchased a couple of things on Ebay while we were gone.

What great Christmas presents from me to me!

This little putz house caught my eye.

I was thrilled when I won the Ebay auction. Even more excited when I opened the box and pulled it out!

The "pipeliner" couldn't imagine why I would want these old worn out lites when I bid on them.

They all work perfectly! Now I just need to find the right spot to display their twinkling beauty!

One of the best surprises when we arrived home was finding my Christmas cactus in full bloom!

This plant is very dear to my heart. It once belonged to my grandmother. I can't remember a time when she didn't have this displayed in full bloom for Christmas.

My grandmother passed 20 years ago.

I am so glad I have been able to keep the cactus happy and thriving for this many years.

Christmas is over for another year.

Time to put the reindeer antlers to rest.

I think the beagle will be happy about that!


  1. I noticed that you started following my blog, and I'm now following yours. I'm fascinated by your "pipelining" life and enjoyed reading your posts. Looks like we like a lot of the same vintage things, and your Beagle is a cutie!

  2. So glad you made it home. I love the little house. My house is full of little houses and churches, but none like that. Your puppy is adorable in his antlers.

  3. What a cute little house I love how gifts to ourselves can make us happy. Your Christmas catus looks wonderful.
    All the best in the New Year.
