A little bit of Christmas in July& More

Hello Blogging Friends,
I usually do a Christmas in July post so when I found these very cute Christmas items at the Good Will I knew what I was gonna blog  But I also have some others pics from last week to share.
But, first I have this sweet Homoco Christmas Elf with his yellow clad doll and Hammer. I think he has been working very joyfully in Santa's workshop.

I also found these very whimsical hand crafted candlestick holders, they remind me of something the Whos might decorate with from "How the Grinch stole Christmas".

I love to take sky pics . 

 The same again in Black & White . I like it this way.

Beautiful clouds & a hint of the yellow sunset peeking through.

This was taken on the Dairy Queen parking lot at the twilight hour or gloaming . I liked the contrast of the red brake lights & the very blue sky .

 Some of my garden pics.  Impatiens after a rainshower.

Heirloom Tomatoes

 Rabbit Topiary

I am behind on my months of the year mini  TP Album . Here is the June page with a Garden Theme & the Tag with Mad Tea Party theme. I have joined in with Sue at Sue Loves Cherries for this monthly challenge.

I found this beautiful graphic on  Google search.

Graphic for tag from Fleece Fun .Note the cute  little teapot charm I purchased on Etsy.

 I made some Drink Me Bottle necklaces for my granddaughters as part of my Mad Tea Party Celebration .
The date of this Celebration of Vanessa's at "A Fanciful Twist' is on my side bar.Anybody is welcome to join in ,check out her blog for details. ( Tag on bottle from B. Nute Productions )

I will leave  with this wonderful invitation from Jesus:
" If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink.If you believe in me you will have streams of living water flowing within."  John 7:37&38

I also love the Drink Me bottle and pinned it on pinterest. My favorite though, is your tag at the end of the post. Blessings to you!

  21. A great presentation for any occasion.

  22. I like the polka dotted candle sticks holder, so cute:)

    Visiting for MYM- hope you can stop by..

  23. Hi Myrna I love your black and white photo it looks very mysterious. I like Christmas in July I like to do Christmas crafts then but i can't because it is a month of many birthdays and I like to make things for the girls, so I am busy with that right now. Your garden photos are wonderful, I love the tomatoes. I wonder why they call them heirloom. I have heirlooms and they are dishes and such. LOL! Hugs

  24. Cute Xmas accessories, Myrna. Your veggies look so good...Christine

  25. Merry Christmas, Myrna!
    Thanks for sharing your dynamic post!
    I hope you are having a Happy Rednesday!
