Warm n' Toasty Beady Links!

Well, the weather people were actually on target today. As much as I'm not a fan of snow, how coolio was it that when I woke up, there was a little bit of snow on the ground. It made me even more in the spirit ! Here's another one of my favor "Classic" Tigger ornaments-holding onto an icicle for dear life!

If you also have a chance, check out Tim's blog. He's holding a "12 Days of Christmas" tag tutorial. If you post, you have a chance to win the supplies he used for that day's project. He did a great job with the step outs and get some good info on the latest Ranger and Tim "stuff"!

On the right are some of my most favorite Hallmark Pooh Ornaments. I actually was lucky enough to get them when they first came out...in 1998! When I put all of them together before putting on the tree, I noticed I didn't have 2002! Darn! Thank goodness for the internet-I found it, MIB and not for a zillion dollars.
Well, it's going to be a busy couple of days, then off to AZ. I'm looking forward to it-I need it! I'll probably be more tired coming back with who knows what Tim's got in store for us.
