Getting A Handle On Christmas...




It's raining...it's pouring...well, you know know how it goes.
Somewhere in that song there needed to be a line about
cats hiding though...because that's what mine are doing
right now. So darn pathetic! And I try to be sympathetic...
but it's just too funny!




The poor things just don't have much experience with rain, especially
rain like this...torrential...since Friday...I am LOVING it...but then again
no trees have fallen on my roof and walls of muddy debris have not
swept my patio furniture down the street!





Yet...
knock wood...
fingers crossed...




So, all this rain brings out the naughty cheater in me!
Ok, so that's the everyday me...but the today me has
really bad rain hair...it's big...wow...needing its own
zip code kinda big! { ELYSE knows my pain! ;}




So, me and my big hair and my fraidy cats are cheating for this week's
Teacup Tuesday by just showing the teacup handles and a few of my
Christmasy snowflake pins...I am ALL about the snowflake at Christmas...
it's obviously an unrequited love!




I hope Terri & Martha don't mind. They are such sweet ladies with manageable
hair...they will surely take pity on me.
Possibly recommending a fabulously smoothing conditioner...or a very large
hat!




{And this is just for my sister...yes, he is VERY handsome and you are just
jealous!}


HAPPY CHRISTMAS TEACUP TUESDAY!
Be sure to pop over to TERRI &
MARTHA'S !

  7. I adore those pins but never knew what they were called. I might have one or two in the jewelry I inherited from my mother and grandmother. I think they really displayed your teacup handles well.

  8. I do not mind at all! I love your witty post and all the beautiful tea cup handles mixed with your gorgeous snowflake pins! As long as you have tea cups in your post it is fine, and you have many! The handles are lovely. I do have a thing for handles!
    Your photographs make me want to be a better photographer! Well done!
    Happy Holidays to you!

  21. The snowflake pins are really beautiful. It snowed on the day my child was buried so they are a symbol I chose to collect. One each year...
