There are 24 days till Christmas - Diary of a Christmas Countdown

Let it snow...........
Last winter we were planning a trip to Florida to visit friends of my husband. We started getting e-mails from them around Christmas. All the e-mail would say is "Toes". There would be a picture of the beach with the ocean waves rolling in, and two bare feet with the toes covered in sand (taken form the perspective of the person taking the picture was looking at his own feet propped up on a beach chair with the beach and ocean in the background). We have some snow on the ground now but I want a lot of snow so I can go out and sit on a beach chair in the yard and take a picture of my toes covered in snow with the snow covered trees and pond in my backyard as the background (with a fresh pedi and a toe ring on of course). The only thing I would put on my e-mail would be "Let it Snow".
On December 17th, 2013 this picture was taken and sent to the culprit mentioned above( plus several other friends and relatives.... Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!
Oh the weather outside is frightful,
But the fire is so delightful,
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.
It doesn't show signs of stopping,
And I bought some corn for popping,
Let it snow, let it snow.
How I'll hate going out in the storm,
All the way home I'll be warm.
And, my dear, we're still good-bye-ing,
But as long as you love me so,
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow
.Let it snow, Let snow, Let it snow.

The charger was made in turkey, I don't remember the maker, bought at The Home Store.
The bear is a Volunteers of America purchase (he is the baby bear from a set of three bears).
Snowman was a Marc's purchase several years ago. Cabbage pot planter was from Goodwill.
More Marc's snowmen.
Flatware is by Argent bought at a Tuesday Morning sidewalk sale. Snowflake wine glasses, tablecloth, napkins, napkin rings, ornament tree, cobalt side dishes, and clear side dishes were all thrift store purchases.
Have a wonderful evening.
Thrift on ladies, thrift on!
