While in the attic looking for something I lifted up a container lid and saw a bunch of Christmas items. What the heck?? So emailed friend Lauren (Rugs and Pugs) about my surprise. She suggested I at least look closer to see what is inside. So I grabbed am arm full and brought them downstairs to photograph.
It isn't the quantity she has and I didn't bring down everything. Here are a few I grabbed. Wrapped in my hooked rugs is a vintage Santa with a turn key in the back to play a tune which still works but not well enough to determine the song it is playing.
I live in a development off the main highway and off a country road just outside the city line. Yesterday afternoon on my walk around the meadow I could hear fire trucks blasting away. The sound seemed to get closer....and closer. Then the trucks were entering the development ~ I turned around to see if any of my neighbors houses were on fire; nope.
Then I realized it was the local volunteer fire department and SANTA wishing us a Merry Christmas since the parade had been cancelled. Sure made our Sunday a very merry day indeed. I happened to see a neighbor capturing a video of the event. She had a longer video but couldn't get that one to send.
