Christmas Gifts On A Nice Place In The Sun

Dick Van Elf
Miss Stocking

Mr. Present

Last night, three gifts, Mr.Present, Miss Stocking, and Dick Van Elf, arrived on A Nice Place In The Sun. I wish more gifts were this thoughtful, because I would rarely have to shop again. However, they've asked me to give them as Christmas Awards or holiday gifts to the best blogs in the blogosphere.

Mr. Present wants to feel free to unwrap, Miss Stocking just wants places to hang, and Dick Van Elf wants to sweep chimneys, in addition to laugh, dance, and sing.

I said I knew plenty of really cool bloggers that I knew would accommodate their wishes, however, Dick Van Elf wasn't happy when he heard that blogs don't have chimneys.

Anyhow, I promised to give them as gifts to my regular readers, who have the option of giving them to other happy, magical blogs this season. Great gifts keep on giving, so there are plenty Mr Presents, Miss Stockings, and Dick Van Elfs to spread around and adopt this season.

Incidentally, they come with easy instructions, not like many other Christmas presents that are hard to assemble, so if you receive one of these gifts, read the following instructions: "If it's your turn to choose one, two, or all three of these gifts to adopt, and decide to pass them on, please pass them to the most magical and imaginative blogs on the internet. Blogs that encourage, year round, the same energetic and imaginative sense of wonder that is apparent throughout the Christmas season."

It doesn't matter if these gifts are belated, you can give them anytime during the holidays, before and after Christmas, all the way to New Years Day.

Merry Christmas everybody, and happy gift giving this year~

I think the following blogs are energetic, fun, magical, and imaginative, the perfect places to leave a Christmas gift.

Please let me know if you're a regular reader and you're not listed here. I want to acknowledge everyone and am worried of leaving out someone special.

Ann, it is so nice to find these presents under the tree.

Guess what? I already unpacked "Mr Present" a few minutes ago (so tempting, I just had to unwrap it before even properly saying "Thank You" - some people never grow up, do they?).

It turns out that Mr Present contains many, many nice little gift-wrapped items, some of which I will be happy to keep for myself, and some I will happily pass on to others - just like the instructions are :). Thank you!

Santa or one of his helpers made the usual and unavoidable little mistake and left something at my place that turns out to be for you..! Come pick it up, it's an original!

May your Christmas be
warm with sharing,
bright with caring,
and filled with love


Ann said...

Aussie Cynic, I saw that you posted them, and I'm so happy Aussie, thanks~ And thank you for the ornament. I love it, do you see it posted? Merry Christmas!

Christy, Thank you! I can't wait for another phone attack! I love ya~

Kim, I saw that you posted them too, and I love how they look on your page! Thank you, pal~

Whimsy Gal, Merry Christmas and I'm glad I could help~ :))

Bud, All the best to you and your family too~ And you have a Merry Christmas too!

Bud, Same thing again..LOL

Winston, yes of course you can have all three. I noticed, that I said have your pick then listed which ones you could have...LOL I need to remove the titles, don't I? Merry Christmas! Silly you~ :))

Thank you, Ev, and Merry Christmas to you and yours as well~ :)

Speedy, I don't believe I've met Mardy. I 'm going to have to stop by your place and see. I wish you a very blessed and happy season as well...hug that grand baby for me...

Jos, I'm so glad you saw them...you unwrapped Mr.Present? LOL I can't wait to see what you have...I just got online, and started returning comments. I thought no one noticed my gifts and I was delightfully surprised to see so many responses when I returned. Thank you Jos, and I'm on my way over to see what you have up your sleeve... Merry Christmas!

Thank you to all of you, like I told Jos, I'm overwhelmed with the responses.

Merry Christmas to all of you!

Adrian said...

Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light

She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free

For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well

Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination

Favorite quotes-

In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since.

Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,” he told me, “just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.”'

F. Scott Fitzgerald. (Lines from The Great Gatsby)
"A Southerner Talks Music"

Mark Twain

"A book must be the ax for the frozen sea inside us."

Franz Kafka

An author values a compliment even when it comes from a source of doubtful competency.

- Mark Twain in Eruption

"I like a good story well told. That is the reason I am sometimes forced to tell them myself"
