little scene

Merry Christmas to All!

This is a fridge magnet cut out from a teacup. Does anybody know which china this is from?

Thank you all for commenting on my blog, lo these many years, and especially for saying that my son's emails/phone calls/letters are funny :-) . His little college friends have been running around playing football games down by the pool and such, but Timmy forges on at Parris Island. If anybody knows what they usually schedule for the recruits on Christmas Day, do fill me in so I can visualize what he is doing.

Maybe they will give them their other winter glove? Or would that be an out-of-control excess of Christmas spirit?

Do the military have a Christmas spirit? Sounds like Weakness to me!
Thanks for all the fun and inspiration over the year, and may the next decade be a great one for you and Timmy.

Happy happy holidays to you, Timmy and Rembrandt!

I still have my magnet from you up on the refrigerator!

I'm sure he'll have a good Christmas dinner. So, picture him in the mess hall happily eating.

Merry Christmas Eve!

I'm all but certain those DI's allowed each and every recruit the chance to hang his stocking by his rack with care right before lights out last night.
Merry Christmas to you - hope it is festive and fun *s*

Oh, Karen - he is sitting down after a wonderful large, good meal (but he will note that it is not as good as his dear mom makes) and writing his dear mom a long, long letter. After that he will have free time and will spend it thinking of his dear mom. He will go to bed early and dream of sugar plums and cookies and, of course, his dear mom!

He is safe and sound and probably a little lonely!

Oh wouldn't that be darling china! We found Martha Stewart Christmas dishes at TJ Maxx for cheap! Bought it for the kids. It is fun to have at Christmas. Let us know what you hear from Timmy.

I too would love to know what china pattern that is. So cute!
I hope you have heard from your son by now. Oh, I wanted to let you know my new blog address:

It looks very much like my china. Try researching Villeroy & Boch, Naif Christmas pattern. I brought this china while in Luxembourg, but you can find it in the states, too.

Did you anticipate all the hilarity at Timmy's expense in this comment section?!??

The magnet is quirky, very attractive.
