Hmmm i seem to have taken an unintended break from blogging for the last 10 or so days. Like many of you i have been busy making for christmas fairs, but i promise i will catch up with everyones blog over the weekend: )
In the meantime feel free to check out my latest treasury.
Like most of you ,I'm sure, i have begun to do at least one or two little bits of Christmas shopping. This is a wee pendant that i order from Home Studio, for my little sister. When she bought her first house i searched everywhere in an attempt to find her the ugliest garden gnome i could find. And since then have always picked up an odd looking gnome if i see one.
This wee guy however, is not at all ugly, but i did think it would make her laugh!
Feel free to have a look at Home Studio on Etsy they have a great selection of pendants : )
On the 5th of November here in Britain we celebrate Guy Fawkes night, it commemorates the 5th of Nov in 1605 when a plot to blow up the houses of Parliament and the then King, James I, was foiled. One of the group, Guy Fawkes has been attributed as being the leader of the group so we build bonfires, make "Guys" (life size effigies of Guy Fawkes) through them on the bonfires and have wonderful firework displays. (The cellars beneath the houses of Parliament were found to be full of barrels of gunpowder)
The tradition of the Guy has fallen away somewhat and in general most people go to locally organised displays but it is all good fun and is usually followed by baked potatoes, soup and toffee apples : )

I don't own a cell phone or a pager. I just hang around everyone I know, all the time. If someone wants to get a hold of me, they just say 'Mitch,' and I say 'what?' and turn my head slightly. - Mitch Hedberg
Books to the ceiling,/ Books to the sky,/ My pile of books is a mile high./ How I love them! How I need them!/ I'll have a long beard by the time I read them. - Arnold Lobel

I like an escalator because an escalator can never break, it can only become stairs. There would never be an escalator temporarily out of order sign, only an escalator temporarily stairs. Sorry for the convenience. -Mitch Hedberg
Ending a sentence with a preposition is something up with which I will not put. -Winston Churchill
