Oh How I love Christmas!

I love it all....the lights, the tree, the ornies, the music, and the true meaning of Christmas - Jesus' birthday!

But I will also admit, I love presents.  Oh, I love to find the perfect present for people....I am a giver, BUT....

I love getting presents also!

My girlfriend Candy always seems to find just the perfect thing for me.  This year she gave me an antique fan.  I have wanted one for years!

Fabulous!

and she also gave me a Tea Brick.  An interesting story that goes with the way that Tea was sold as a Brick.....and then scraped to get the leaves.  I will not be using this....but I told her it was definately BLOG WORTHY!




Yep, I love me some Christmas presents!!
