Merry Christmas to You

Have your self a Merry Little Christmas, now....
The tiny Nativity is about 3 inches across and 2 inches high.
My year-round sparkly star.
Santa Baby- He's a bell.
There's a teeny tiny little ceramic ball inside,
and when it hits the side, there's a tiny little
tinny tinkle bell.
Love it.
This is from our vintage Christmas tree from 1960's,
when I was little.

Absolutely Nothin'..... and A Chukar...Chukka, chukka,,, chuk!

Absolutely nothin' got done today, or rather
I did absolutely nothin' but rest.
So thought I'd do a little "wild kingdom" program.
There was a family in Arizona that recently spent two nights in the desert
in low temps, evidently in an area where people hunt for chukars.
I don't know how many people know what  chukar is.
Then I remembered a chukar that came to visit one day, and of course,
grabbed the camera.
This bird seemed very docile and tame, but it is not a pet.  It is wild.  It seemed to be
a little lost, in a way,  as it kept calling,
"Chukka, chukka, chuk....!"
It let me get quite close, while taking photos.
It's a very pretty bird, and is in the partridge family. 
I haven't seen one since that day.

and has gone to live with a very special person.
 
 I love these pictures. 
 

It has a new home and I'm very happy.

Happy Halloween


"Face Jugs"- Halloween-2013
*~~*
I actually do love Halloween, I do.
It's been a time for lots of fun,
some scary times too.
But I'll focus on the fun,
Keep the bad spirits on the run,
and burn a candle in my face jug for me and you!
