Penguin-palooza!

Penguins, penguins, everywhere.... at Christmas time especially so. Here's the wreath on my front door. These little guys were crocheted by my mother many years ago. The other 7 are hanging on the tree.

My front steps leading up to Mr Animated Light Up Penguin on the porch. Check out those lawn stake lights. Awwwwe-some dude!

At night in all his glory!

The window ledge in the kitchen.

Cookie jar.

That guy on top the microwave sings and dances when you push a button!


The Hallmark figure. When you push a button the tree lights up and the snowman and penguins sing and move. The penguins even shake their booty! It's hilarious!

I got the new snowbabies figurine in the middle this year as a reminder of all the time I waited for Mia. It's called "Worth Waiting For" and there's a calendar hanging behind the snowbaby and the penguin.

Another cheap and easy way to decorate... candy canes in a pretty vase.

I painted those lamp shades myself. Not bad, huh? There's my favorite pic of the penguin pj's. More Christmas balls and beads in pretty vases. Gotta love cheap and easy...


I even sleep with penguins! Oh get your mind out of the gutter! Hardy har-har! Yes I have issues. But they're my issues and I like them! So thank you very much.

okay, the bedding is the best part!!!
I bought my daughter a penguin christmas stocking this year at Big Lots of $2.99, and I swear it is the cutest thing. I'll have to check and see if they have anymore left.

Okay, that is alot of penguins!! I would ask you where you find so many penguins except I seem to see them everywhere these days!

I think the bedding is my favorite!! You can definitely tell we're related, not about the penguins, but the Christmas decorating!! There's not an inch of any table top, book shelf, etc. that isn't decorated for Christmas! And a lot of things are sitting around strategically on the floor.
I loved the snowbaby and penguin with the calendar. How appropriate! You DO find the darndest things!! Love ya!

Hey...where's that cute little candy dish you bought with the penguins laying on their backs? It was adorable. I think of you ALL THE TIME as there are penguins EVERYWHERE! It's always a treat to think of you my friend!
