It’s a Wonderful Tree
Many hands made light work…of the Mitten Tree at my bank. Mentioned prior in Mitzvah Patrol.
God love the knitters. And the Solid Gold Dancers that make us woodchucks miss big city life with good reason in any season.
God Bless the Crazy Nutters, Every One
My Favorite Things
Frantic for last-minute gifts? Here’s some for not a lot of quid:
The Ziploc Vacuum Starter Kit. With no battery or plug, your giftee will be pumping his or her way clear to obsession~and I’m not talking off-label use. Then you got your Avon Moisture Therapy hand creme. Sure, I dig l’Occitane at 4 times the price, but not so the metal packaging you can’t get product out of after a certain point. For readers and jokers, one of my all-time faves is The Joys of Yiddish; if you’re a real schnorrer, which may or may not mean “cheapskate” in Yiddish, you can get it used for 23 cents plus shipping here. There is a new version out but I can’t vouch for it [enter Yiddish punchline]. For the gift of beauty, might I suggest Laura Mercier’s face polish; a pricey scrub at 30 bucks but worth it. Lastly, for hair, I have yet to top Terax Crema conditioner (buy American!) but that could be because I can’t find a good shampoo. Which, you know, might make a nice gift, as would … Bose headphones. No pressure.
