I like Thursdays: December 20, 2018

I was driving home from the doctor when I spied these geese in and along a small pond.  It stimulted an old music memory and I had to rack my brain to remember the song; it's called "Something told the Wild Geese."  It's a wonderful haunting song that encapsulates the feeling of the eve of winter.  You can listen to it here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-j9Vh6b_p00  

It's Thursday and that means the web is full of positive thoughts.  You can find more at LeeAnna's Blog at Not Afraid of Color!

I love the Christmas commercials that people share.  Deb over at WonkyGirls Journal shared this earlier this week and it's become a big favorite of our family!!!  Thanks Deb!!!


I like Christmas hankies!  I was hoping to do a little display of mine this year but my back prohibited me hanging them.  Still, I thought I would share some of them:

This one was so loved, it was even mended :)


 Love the imprinted images on these two!  The reindeer!

Gotta love me a Christmas poodle!

Hope you are having a wonderful Christmas season!

Hi Michele! What a nice collection of hankies. Geez, I remember my mom had a lot of them. Her name was Violet, so she had a lot with either the flower on it or in that hue. I wish I had saved some of them, but alas I didn't. I hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas, with time to enjoy and relax. Happy Thursday to you. ~smile~ Roseanne

Thank you so much for sharing Something Told the Wild Geese...I loved it and had to look up the Rachel Field poem. This is how we learn from each other and there is always something new to learn.
And this Christmas commercial is so touching, like Diann, I had a tear.
I also found your Christmas hankie collection very sentimental for me as I remember well both grandmothers having these hankies.
What a special post!

cool hankies! Funny how one can look like the 50's like the poinsettia or the santa in the corner.

That pond froze so cleanly - shiny ice. And such a variety of hankies!

A display of handkerchiefs, I love that. I just might do that with the collection I have of my mom's and mom-in-law. Merry Christmas! :-)
