Here IAM almost ready for THE FESTIVITIES just a few MORE stocking stuffers for THE ITALIAN!
I told him we would GO to the local CVS and spilt up and shop for each other!
He had GREAT SUCCESS evidently and I found NOTHING!
SO back OUT I GO TODAY!
HAD great success at THE GARDEN CLUB POP UP SHOP CHRISTMAS TEA!
SOLD MOST OF THE STUFF I brought and was HAPPY THIS WATERING CAN CAME HOME WITH ME!
We were set up in a patio on a rainy COLD DAY so I was dressed in LAYERS!

THE ITALIAN picked his TIE out of the boxes he has stashed under our bed!
I purchased this on the PONTE VECCHIO maybe 28 years ago!
It was a HIT!
