~ A PIG AND A TAG ~

Hello !! I hope all of you had a great weekend...Me I been a little under the weather so to speak...But on Saturday My Grand daughter wanted to go to town and I took the time to go with her....now mind you our Biggest town is 65 miles one way so this is always a day of travel and shopping...hey what can I say I live in the mountains and when I hear a car I know I have company !!!. In fact I can run around naked and no one but God and the deers can see me...Any how I am digressing again...Candace and I hit every store we could in the time we could...that girl loves to shop lol!! Now I am not a PIG Girl..What you thought I was?? But I spotted this little Christmas Pig girl and thought it was the sweetest little thing and you know when something SCREAMS your name it just hops into your basket...Have not a clue why I bought it !!! Maybe I'll give it to Candace of course after Christmas....This I got at Ross for $6.99 I love going to Ross always so many neat things to look at...Now I had most of my Christmas shopping already done when I went shopping and I tell you I bought so much stuff at Ross...should have just given them the deed to my home WOW!! oh wait our property values are worst squawk !! That wouldn't done me abit of Good...Good thing I had my best friend called Visa with me !!!



Then we go to the Hallmark store and Lookies here !!! they had a deal where if you buy 3 Hallmarks cards you could get this Gingerbread house for only $19.99 so needless to say I got 3 cards and this came home with me...and it plays the "Nutcracker " song and all the gum drops light all up...And this really "SCREAMED" Gloria buy me and take me home...


Now I have been TAGGED and need to pass these on !!! don't you just love Butterflies ?? how ever these "Butterflies" aren't FREE I have to post the person who gave this to me and then pass it on to 10 blogs with links to them...do you know how long this will take me?? I better get started now while its only morning !!! This was given to me from Four Paws and Company if you haven't been to see Diane please do she loves animals and have a wonderful blog and always so kind to everyone I just love visiting her and she can't be all bad as she lives here in California with me !!

Love the sweet pig, and I'll take a gingerbread house too! lol I love the mountians, I live away from city as you do, so I know what you mean about cars and running around no clothes! I just had a carmel pie delivered, by a neighbor over the fields. She made from scratch. Going to hit in a few! lol

Diane said...

Hey Sweet Lady! Are you feeling better yet? We have a Ross about a mile and half from home & Tuesdays are 10% for those of us over 55. If I'm really on a roll, there's another store few miles the other direction. I'm always so tickled over my bargains! ♥ Diane

Kristen said...

Love the gingerbread house that plays the nutcracker...I need to see if my Hallmark has it.
Sounds like your day of shopping was lots of fun!

I always enjoy your blog so much. Such a happy place and such interesting "stuff". Marty

Glenda said...

So glad you ventured out Saturday and hope you are feeling much improved today.
The little gingerbread house is too cute for words. The gumdrop lights and the fact that it plays music also, sends it over the top.

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

Sorry you haven't been feeling well, Gloria.

I like your sweet little Christmas piggy.

I "need" to go to Hallmark. Haven't been in months and Christmas is always a great time to go.

Hope you have a great week.

ksarra said...

Hi Happy! Hope this finds you feeling better. I know you must have had a great time shopping with your granddaughter! I am a little jealous that you live so far out in the country! We have neighbors on all sides! And while we all get along, I think everyone would appreciate a little more space. I am sooooo with you on the "I thought I was finished Christmas shopping" idea. And now I keep finding cute little "extra" gifts for everybody. I may have to go digging through WalMart to find one more roll of that cute paper I bought. "Talk" soon friend, please come to see me!

lvroftiques said...

Gloria girl I love both that adorable piggy and the gingerbread house!! I'll have to check out the Hallmark for that one for sure! Ummmm not to be a dorkus but I have no idea how to post this award on my blog? Could ya help a sistah out? I'd love to share my very first official blog award! Vanna

Terrie's Lil' Piece of Serenity said...

Gloria, I love the little pig. WE have a lot of real pigs around the area of the country I live in. Actually, we are about 60 miles approx. from the larger towns. We sure don't live in the city. The gingerbread house is really cute, too. I am glad you got to go shopping. I don't go shopping in larger towns very much. We have some nice little boutique accessory stores close even to shop at when you're in the mood.
Have a great night!!
Hugs, Terrie

laurie said...

Shelia said...

Evening, Gloria. Glad to know you're feeling better. Wow, your shopping trip with Candance sounds fantastic! I'm not a pig girl either but that little one is darling! You're a hoot and hope you have a great evening,
Be a sweetie,
shelia ;)

Remind me to never come to see you announced! LOL! (naked, huh??? LOLOL!) Hope you are feeling better! Sounds like you had a great shopping trip! I love Ross, too!

THANK YOU so much for the award! That was so sweet of you to pass it on to me! I am humbled and honored! ...that is a new one for me too! And congrats on you being awarded it too! You certainly deserve it! ~hugs, Rhonda :)

Hi, yes the country is great, until you go shopping and every thing is so far away! I love the mountians, I live in farming country. Lucky you!

Mary Ellen (megardengal) said...

I think your piggy is sweet!! It's some of that whimsy Gollum blogged about!

I admire you that you can run around naked!! I feel funny running from the bathroom to bedroom- I always wonder what made me so body concious!!!

Melissa Miller said...

Oh my I was just shopping at Ross yesterday!!!
It seriously looked like the store was bursting at the seams they had so much new stock in. It was awesome.
Found the prettiest gold hurricane to put Christmas ornaments in. In fact I can't think of a thing to post so I may do that and my awards as well. Thanks for the ideas and the laughs this mornin' my friend.
Enjoy your day and snuggle in that robe. Stay warm. :)

Melissa Miller said...

Oops I forgot. The pig is A-dor-a-ble! :0

Theresa @ Take A Sentimental Journey said...

Oh the little piggie is so cute, no wonder you couldn't resist ! I love that Ross store too girl !

Linda said...

I love looking at all the cute decorations on your website. We are going to be traveling from Central NY to Atlanta for Christmas so my decorations this year are minimal...I miss that. So I have to depend on my friends blogs to spruce up my spirit with their decorations! Beautiful!

Gollum said...

I'm sorry to hear that you aren't feeling well. The red pig is gorgeous--he's festive and whimsical. I would have bought him, too. Take care!

Lynne said...
