Just check out her lovely blog!

Here are my answers to the questions asked:

Yes, but I sort of shop the whole year round :)

Can't think of one.

I bought one yesterday , a fairly small one ,
one I can plant in the garden after Christmas.

If you have been tagged it would be great if you would join in on the fun. This is what you need to do:
Just simply copy and paste the questions into your blog, and then answer them.Then tag 5 or more of your favorite blogs, and leave them a comment telling them they’ve been tagged.
When you post your blog, please spread some Christmas cheer, and leave a link back to this blog (
Top 10 Christmas), and the blog that you were tagged by which for me was Audrey's Country Crafts.
