12 Days of Christmas

In lieu of stockings this year, I thought I would do something different for my grandchildren.  I've created a 12 days of Christmas to begin today the 14th.

I have all kinds of goodies for them and I think they will enjoying getting a small gift each day.

I used toilet paper rolls, covered them with wrapping paper  and glued one end with craft glue.  Attached them with a clothes pin, the only problem is some of the gifts are too big for two or three gifts so some of them will be a little note directing them to the location of the gift.

Today is the first day so I'm looking forward to when they get home from school.

I'm linking with for Rednesday.

Ann....Can you believe that I have managed to get back over here after all of these months of not posting to my Buttons for Baga blog. I am now totally at my “climbingthedigitalmountain” one, and this week I posted a vintage red Remington typewriter. Hooked in with Ruby Tuesday and then I remembered Rednesday and you here I am. I LOVE your 12 day of Christmas banner. I will have to remember that for next year just to enjoy here with Buddy. It is a precious idea. This year I made 12 fabric tied wreaths for gifts and my fingers are bruised from cutting hundreds of fabric strop with the pinking shears (50 year old ones.) Your idea would NOT kill my finders like the shears did. Hope you Mr. Lion are well this Christmas and Santa dos come to see him. Am still looking for you the nutcrackers, but as yet have not found them. Hugs, genie

Totally clever and cute!


Something cherry, something blue,
Something scarlet just for you;
Something blazing as the sun,
Something red when day is done.
