Just a little charming barn ornament....

Lorelei's mom saw this ornament and got it for me because she knows how much I love barns...

I have been so preoccupied with other stuff....I have not looked at blogs, not sure if I will get a chance to before Christmas. I am hoping I have time tomorrow night. But in case I don't, I hope all of you have a Merry Christmas.
I also wanted to show a picture of the Christmas tree that I took without the flash...you can still see the Christmas tree skirt. That is how Bubbie keeps it. I straighten it and he manages to almost wad it up into a wad. I straighten it out, and he messes with it again. I have decided to let him have his way. I almost put out presents, but have been so glad I didn't.

I do not know what is going on with the cats...Bubbie wanted out Saturday sometime around dark. He was gone for around 24 hours....he is never gone. For sure not like that. He will go next door, and every now and then he crosses the street...but he is never gone for long. Not like his brother who was responsible for a lot of gray hairs. I really thought something has happened to him. He had a 'garage' smell when he came in...oh, not strong...I had to get down with my face in his fur to smell it....but feel sure he was locked in a neighbor's garage. Just don't know which one.

Before that he was picking on the other cats, almost tore the tree down. He was even playing with one of the cat toys by himself, and usually the only time he plays with one is when we have it tied on the end of a fishing line and swing it around for him.

Then the Puss Puss has just been into every single thing...and she cries...I honestly think she wants to be a mommy. I don't know if it is possible for her to have that longing since is spayed, but she will get stuff and carry it around and cry part of the time. And she has done that lately, but she has also just gotten into everything. No matter what I am doing, she is there sticking her head in to see if she is missing anything. I sure know where the saying 'curiosity killed the cat' came from.
*************
All this time away from blogging and I have not been doing much. I have spent hours and hours yesterday evening and this evening/night looking for a pattern. I feel like i am always looking for something.

And I was looking through a lot of my fabric....and I found a baby quilt top that I totally forgot about making. And it has not been that long ago at all that I made it. If I had not run across it I would never have remembered it. I will have to take a picture of it next week if I can remember.

Roger has made another knife...I will be showing it sometime in the near future. It is one of the best looking so far.

I need to get to bed...oldest daughter and I plan to make cookies tomorrow...just what I need. Something I can't resist. I think we are just making three or four kinds. Anyway, I need to get to bed till I can get some sleep...
***************
Lorelei is wanting everything pink for Christmas. We do not know where she came up with that....she wants a pink princess outfit, a pink Barbie, a pink car, and I don't remember what all else she wants. And they were out shopping the other day and Sarah found some pink wrapping paper with princess and she got it and Lorelei was so excited....Oh, mom, you are the greatest...I love you!

I really like your barn decoration it is very cute. That is one to keep I think.
I think at this time of the year it is very easy to get bogged down with everything we have to do. I can't believe Christmas day is only 5 days away. This year certainly flew by!!
Anyway have a lovely Christmas - I'm sure you will. Oh and have a cookie for me - once you have made them :))

Sandra said...

cute barn, and it sounds to me like there is a cat in heat somewhere making your cat crazy. it is strange they are both acting different than normal. hope you got some sleep last night and are busy baking right now

Neat barn ornament!

Funny how so many little girls go through a pink stage!
It sounds like you are very, very busy, Rose. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas!!

You have a beautiful tree and I love the barn ornament. This is really going to be a busy week! I need to get busy myself, but have to stop and peak at blogs occasionally!
Have a wonderful Christmas!

I enjoyed reading your account of Bubbie and Puss Puss. Your tree looks good the way Bubbie wants it to look! :-)

Hi Rose, I love the barn ornament... Have never seen one.. That is awesome. Hope you showed it to the Barn Charm folks.

I know you are thrilled to have your older daughter home. How long can she stay???? Are you all going to Lorelei's for Christmas --or are they coming to you???

Lorelei is such a girly girl, isn't she???? Love that idea that she wants everything PINK...

Hugs,
Betsy

Love the barn ornament. This year I decided to get Memorial Ornaments for my tree, Starting with my 19 year old Nephew, Cole, who was killed in September. then I ordered one for my Mom, Our baby granddaughter that passed away in 2008, and for my grandparents. I still have more to go.

I really like the barn ornament. It's perfect for you. I wish I could be there to help eat the Christmas cookies you're going to make.

A very charming barn decoration Rose!
Lucy is a little young yet to really say what she wants but Lily's all into red.
I wonder if the princess wrap is the same I found. Lily's birthday is the 28th so I'm using it for that. She wanted a princess party. :)

I love your barn ornament, I have one that is very similar to yours.

Love the ornament. What types of cookies did you make? That's a whole post, maybe. I haven't made any yet because Bryan's had surgeries this month and I'm too tired. But folks from church have supplied. Homemade cookies are a real weakness for me. I'm eating a co-worker's malted milk ball cookies right now!

Mary said...

Love the ornament! Hope you have a beautiful Christmas and a Happy New Year! (full of barns and fabric and Lorelei :-)

Lowell said...

Nice looking tree, Rose...and the barn ornament is cute - very different. I've not seen one like it. But these days, I think just about anything is made into an ornament! Fun times.

Bubbie sounds like a little rascal. Sorta like some of the cats we've had down through the years.

Lorelei must be looking forward to Christmas...she sure is growing up.

Best of everything to you and yours! Hope you have a really great celebration!

Susan said...

You ought to link to Barn Charm with that Christmas ornament. It's awesome! I wonder if it's the Christmas season that gets the cats (if you'll pardon the expression) hair up. Mine have been crazy too! I finally took my tree down early because my kitten would not leave it alone, and I was tired of being angry! Hope you have a great Christmas, your tree is beautiful!

Merry Christmas to you and your family,

Cats are such wonderful creatures, but they can also be "difficult." Yet, we love them, no matter what! I used to have three cats many years ago and our daughter has had quite a few over the years (she has two now). The male has taken to peeing on her couch and he's been spayed for years and never did it before about 10 months ago. She's tried everything to make him stop. Things like that can be such a battle! Hope you get back to regular blogging again now with the new year. Loved the barn ornament!
