We went out for a bit today. One of the nicest things about this time of year is that there are so many other folks out and about. I ran into several friends while out. It was fun.

We weren't shopping for ourselves today but we did drop into "Art on a Mission" and I got this tin. I've taken a number of pictures and can't get one that isn't blurry so this will have to do for tonight. Sorry. I just loved the little birds and the color of the trim. The lid is pretty, too.

There are a couple of shops in the mall that only come during this time of year. One is called the Crystal Cottage and my kids have bought things there for me for years. They have a lot of crystal jewelry and angels and pretty stones. I found these hair scrunchies there. I've been seeing them around and I always think they'd work great as skirts for my dolls. At 50cents a piece, I finally bought some today. I put one on the little yellow doll and I really like the results.

We didn't buy much today but the rest that we did get was for family and has been mailed away to hopefully reach the birthday girls. :)

I hope everyone had a great day. We had a good one. I took Nick downtown tonight. He's going to be the young Scrooge in Dickens of a Christmas and they're doing a run-through for the news tonight. I hope I manage to catch it if it makes it to tv. My baby's a supa-stah. hehe

I'm going to choir practice here in a bit so I'm going to go grab some food before I leave. Have a great night.

that tin is adorable - I so love the birds! Then I saw the got it for .50???? We were in a gift store last Friday and they had them, I thought immediately how perfect they would be for art dolls(they had all different colors) but guess what...they were $4.99!!!! (I didn't buy them). So you got a GREAT deal!! Sounds like you had a lovely day!

You're so clever - the scrunchies do make perfect little skirts.
A "break-a-leg" wish to your son in his Scrooge role - and I hope you get to catch it on TV!

I love the little tin Lisa! Can see why you wanted to buy it. Can't go past a bird tin:)

And the scrunchie looks adorable on the little yellow doll.

Nick will be fabulous as a young scrooge! He obviously has acting in his blood.

Big hug from me to you sweetie pie!
