I’m calling it and saying Christmas decorating has officially started here, despite the tree, lights and decorations still all being in the roof waiting for Ben to get up there and bring them down. I’m so excited that the first Christmas decoration in place around home is my fabulous find yesterday.

For years I have been longing for a fabulous Christmas nutcracker but have never been willing to pay the extravagant prices I see on line from England and United States. But yesterday my longing and patience paid off when I stopped at just one more garage sale when I nearly wasn’t going to.

He is certainly going to be a special Christmas keepsake which I will be looking forward to bringing out each year. Thank goodness for the little birdy that sat on my shoulder and told me to stop at just one more garage sale.
