On the Twelfth Day of Christmas…

My true love gave to me…

12 drummers drumming!

And to round up the troops, the remaining drummers are all German wooden nutcrackers.


And that ends the hypothetical 12 days of Christmas gifts here!  I had fun dreaming up “gifts” – obviously all extravagant and somewhat ridiculous, but then again, isn’t the song ridiculous?? HA! Are you sick of the song yet?? Me too.

Wishing you all a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

I’ll be back on the blog after the New Year – taking a short break for the holidays!
