Seeing dots and pink spots

I was browsing Pinterest this morning and came across a lot of really sweet smalls for Christmas.  This one made me smile through the lingering but mild headache.
I purchased the dot linen a while back, also the checkered, and haven't come up with a chart for them.  I do love this guy!  Wonder who designed him.
Made my Nona's onion pizza.  Simple pizza dough topped with sliced onions (not sweet) tossed in a good olive oil, sprinkled with oregano, salt and pepper.
Packing up the decorations today while Mr. Bud snores the morning away.  He has had only two accidents inside in the years we've had him, but to prevent future I am insisting he go outside for a bit late afternoon.  If it's cold or rainy (which is the only time they come inside), he can use the box in the garage.  It's much larger than the one in the house and I plan to sprinkle catnip in it.  He loves that stuff.
 As for the house I referred to, I don't have a phone to photograph it, nor would I.  Their massive home with red lights in every window, red lamp lights, red house light, red garage lights, 5 red spotlights, and blue and purple lighted treetops with green trunks, is their choice.  Red is nice, but the theme is lost in the excess.  Could be what they love, could be what a special needs person inside loves.  Maybe they have small children who get to choose.  They display it proudly and any jet flying over appreciates the guidance.  Personally, I saw pink for an hour after.
Have a happy and healthy 2019 everyone!

I can help with the snowman as I stitched it ! It's "Cromwell" by the designer "the Trilogy". A very sweet one ! Happy new year to you, hope it will be a calm and smooth one !

That snowman on the spotted fabric is so dear. I've had "Cromwell" on my "to-be-stitched" list for years... Somehow he keeps melting away year after year :)

Wishing you all the best in 2019, Marly... can hardly believe another year is ending in less than 9 hours! ♥

That snowman on the polka dot linen is adorable! I never knew of Flosstube..but love YouTube for Trevor Noah, complaining comedians, foul mouthed comedians and a guy who scraps, flea markets and resellers...exciting, eh

I have Samsung and Verizon works best for me...was a necessity with my parents their last few years, now no land line..

As long as I keep the litter box very clean there are no problems besides cat yak...Melrose is quite fastidious!

Wishing you and your family a happy and healthier 2019 with much less "need" for chocolate

Happy New Year, my friend. I hope this one will be much better for all of us.
I hope the head ache will go away soon. Sorry it's still affecting you.
Bud looks so comfy.....our Sheldon snores too.
Take care and have a wonderful week.

Love your thinking about why some houses are decked out in what makes us cringe. I need to do that more often!
Some day I might like to have a cat but no way right now. My Schnauzers would have it for breakfast.
It took me a while to figure out why I wasn't getting notifications too. I follow a lot of flosstube but I only hit that bell on my favorites, otherwise my bell would be clanging all day long!

Cromwell is very cute! Happy New Year Marly!

Love the ornament, and now I'm hungry for pizza! But wait, I'm always hungry for pizza : )

Happy New Year! Love that ornament! I have some polka dot linen too, never thought to use it for an ornament, how cute. If you ever find out who did the design, let us know!! It's a cozy cold day inside for us today, enjoying the heck out of the first new day of the year. :)

Awww...poor Bud! He does look nice and comfy though!
That pizza looks delicious! Who'd a thunk just onions and no sauce? Mmmmmmm!
Always looking forward to seeing pics of your home and stitches... may 2019 be a peaceful one... enjoy those chocolates! :-)

Bud looks so comfy.
The snowman ornament is adorable, I see lots of fun items on Pinterest cross stitch, so many it hurts to sometimes look, I could sit for hours looking.

Happy New Year
