I made this appliqued and embroidered felt door decoration back in the early 80's. My little "Welcome Bear" had been boxed up for too long and I decided it was time for him to make an appearance.
Old ornament above is very simple but I loved how it looked when placed in front of a Christmas tree light bulb. No, your eyes are not playing tricks on you, the photo below is a little out of focus. :(
The Holiday Season and Blogger HeadachesI thought I had this season figured out, blogwise anyway. I would do a few posts at a time and have them scheduled for publication on certain dates and then if comments came in, I could quickly check my personal email address to moderate and visit their blogs in return. Simple yes ? Well for some unknown reason, after several years of receiving email notifications of comments needing moderation, Blogspot has stopped sending me these notifications. Bummer ... now I must stop whatever I'm doing and check on my Blogspot dashboard frequently to see if there are any wonderful comments to acknowledge.
Today as I prepared this particular posting I notice that I'm having problems with the uploading of my photos. I click on the ones I want to post and then when I return to the photo pop-up window all of my choices have been erased. This is supposed to the Christmas-Hanukkah-Kwanzaa season not April Fools ! :(
If anyone has suggestions on how to get my email notifications back please feel free to give them to me. I've tried clearing out my cache, unchecking the "remember me" option box and then logging out, shutting my PC off and re-booting, I checked over my settings but couldn't find that anything had changed. I also checked the blogger "help" section (but that was a couple of days ago so I might try"help" again to see if anything new has been discussed).
Photo above ... another dated Christmas decoration, this one is from Hallmark. The Bear's beary happy Christmas, with Mama Bear holding a cookie sheet of fresh baked cookies, Papa Bear hanging up the Christmas stocking on the fireplace mantel, little Missy Bear reading her book while little Junior Bear plays on the floor with his little toy boat.
Hope you are all enjoying a marvelous and happy Holiday ... and remember to leave some cookies for Santa. :)
