Hi my name is Brogen or TCFH (the cat from hell). Just because I like to jump and grab onto your pant leg at random times. As you can see I am stunned that we have no baby yet. Mom had to be induced because of some health concerns but I am assured that everything is going as planned and no problems. I am told these things take time. I wonder if she is having kittens? I would love kittens to play with. What its a baby! Yikes! Ok I am off to play with gramie she said she loves your comments gives her something to read while waiting.

Snow Snow Snow
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. We just made it home before it started to snow last night and we woke up to this and it is still snowing. Time to do some cleaning and maybe pull out my hooking.
this is the tree that I hung the gingerbread men on you can see that there are no men left. It was so cute to see the red squirrel grab a man and run like crazy so the other squirrels didn't see him.And still no baby news. My daughter was not happy I took this picture but how wonderful and cozy do they look? I have a wonderful son-in-law and he gave my daughter some thoughtful wonderful gifts.
Hope you're all warm and cozy.

What do you do with gingerbread men that you have baked just a little to long?? You hang them by their necks on a tree outside for the birds and squirrelsI have all of the odds and ends all bought. When the family gets together each family buys 20.00 worth of scratch tickets we separate them and put them all together in a basket and draw one out for each adult each round, scratch and then see if anyone won that round and we continue until all tickets are drawn. We have been doing this for about 10 years and the largest amount won 50.00 on one ticket and I think there is at least 100.00 worth of tickets each year. So to say that scratch tickets are a losing proposition is an understatement.
Her due date is the 27th but they told her any day now two weeks ago. I wish they hadn't said that! Now she is a bit upset that she could spend Christmas in the hospital. My poor baby. We are all anxious but I am sure that our grand daughter will come when she is ready and not before.
To all my wonderful Blogging friends You are all just the most amazing people. I count you among my many blessing. Have a Wonderful Christmas.

Weekend Wind Up
Big weekend and lots of pictures so get a cup of tea and join me. First on Friday I went to the dump before work and found 2 of these chairs they are iron. I do not believe they have ever been used. Do you see the white seats???? not a speck on them. I think I may sell them. and the little snowman angel has never been used just put a tea light in and he looks so sweet. I have a friend that would love him.After work I had to make a drop at the thrift store and you know I can't drop and go. So I found this sweet red sweater, and a table cloth I think it is a reproduction material but the blue is so my kitchen. The little stars are not German, but I love the color and sparkle and for .25 for all it's a sale.
Stawbery banke has a lot of houses that they have been restored to the original period they were build. You get to see how Christmas came to America and how it was celebrated. Me, I was all about the dishes.
Can you believe how beautiful these are and the built in alone is beautiful Yes it is curved.
Thank you for all of your wonderful comments I really enjoy them so much. Talk to you soon!

First I want to thank everyone for their kind comments on my last post. It really meant a lot to me.
I want to share my mantle. I just got this joy I think it is German glass or silver glitter as it has tarnished at bit. I walked into the thrift store and the girl running it said I bet Cathy wants this. She was right for .25 oh yeah.These snow shoes are my step-father's which he doesn't use any more so up they go on the wall.
with a real wreath but fake roping.

Two years ago today I lost my mother. It was not unexpected but never easy. My mom had lived with us for 13 years in a little apartment in our house. So to say I miss her is an understatement. My daughter is expecting her first great grandchild she would have been so excited.So for this morning Sadie and I will watch the birds, my mother's favorite past time.

My Christmas Tree
I am linking up with nesting place and once again linking up to house in the roses to show off my Christmas tree. I love my tree yes it is artificial first because my daughter was allergic and then even after she grew up and left I loved that I could keep it up as long as my heart desired.I have a mix of warm memories and glorious vintage. This is a picture of my daughter on her first Christmas. She is now 27 and waiting for her first baby any day now.

Last weekend we went on a Christmas house tour put on by the local garden club. There were 5 houses decorated for the holiday in all different neighborhoods. We were not to take pictures. This was the first house and it was up for sale so all bets off. This is the only picture I got. While the inside was lovely it had all the original woodwork and it had a wonderful feel. I was a bit disappointed in the decorations. In fact all the houses were nice but decorations were very disappointing. The last house was amazing and I would gladly move in any day. It was large on 200 acres of orchards, high bush blueberries, horses and the most amazing view of Gunstock mountain. the house and the barn were built of brick. Even thought it was large it was homey and comfortable, just right. and the best decorated.On the way home My husband said well you out do them in decorations. I think I go over the top a bit but I love it, so here is a little peek. This is a couple of branches from a tree in the yard stuck in the ice bucket I got at the thrift store not long ago. This holds all of my little gnomes.
