“A wise old owl lived in an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard...
Why can't we all be like that bird?”

    1. Bud has many Oriental figurines, and I wasn't going to take them down [too many to store] - so I used a little glittery. LOL Glad you liked it.

  3. Good morning dear Anni:-)

    You found the perfect items to go with the Scavenger Hunt prompts...I'm loving that jade statuette, it's stunning! The Santa with the striped hat seems to be made out of glass? It's adorable!! The acrylic snowflake is gorgeous, lots of sparkling going on there for sure:-)

    I'm just waiting for the mall to open in the hopes that WalMart won't be insane this early in the morning! lol xoxo
