Friday Smiles No 49

Every Friday, Annie asks us to show something that has made us smile and this week I've had so much to smile about.  
Here's a little Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer made by my neighbours grand daughter. I love him, he's so cute, and I want to make lots more so I'd better get opening some wine. (Must make sure they are not screw tops!)
We got a "new to us" car and I love that too.
I saw this and thought of a lovely blogging buddy....LLJ aka Lunch Lady Jan!! 
Last but certainly not least, I'm sneaking in these little treasures that popped through the post, courtesy of our own dear Annie who certainly brings lots of smiles to so many people. They sold PDQ at my Quilters Christmas party and made lots of money for Christmas treats for the children who are going through treatments for cancer. Huge THANKS to Friday Smile hostess Super Star Annie!
If you pop over to Annie's blog you are sure to end up smiling too!

Annie said...

Fab smiles Jo. I just must copy the idea of that little reindeer :-)
I really do hope you and your gorgeous family have a wonderful Christmas and 2014 comes with good health and lots of exciting times for us all.

Love the cork reindeer, very talented crafter in the making there, I think.

The ladies that lunch made me chuckle too. Thanks for the Friday smiles.


Lunch Lady Jan said...

Lol ! Great, that's you, Julia and me from left to right!!! I'm determined to grow old disgracefully....anyway, I bet there's gin and not tea in their flask ;-)

Happy Christmas to you and your family...thank you for all the fun, love, support and general lunacy over the past year. May it continue into 2014 :-)
Hugs and smackers, LLJ xxxx

Cute reindeer. LOL with lunch ladies. Is that how LLJ got her nickname? :) Aren't they the cutest teddies! Happy Holidays.

Love the little reindeers. I think Annie must have a bear "mine" at the bottom of her garden or maybe a magic hat - she is a treasure isn't she. x Jo

Tee hee. I have two friends collecting corks for me and two other friends collecting bottle tops. I've seen the reindeer and hope to make one for each of them! How fun.

I love the old photo of the Ladies who Lunch!

That reindeer is such fun. And the photo of the 'lunch ladies'. Enjoy the car. I wish ours was red instead of silver like most of the others over here. Then I might be able to find it in a car park!
Have a lovely Christmas. Love Kate x
