Here's a Small Christmas Stocking

Here's a small Christmas stocking I just finished crocheting. It's small enough to be another package decoration for a gift then whoever gets it will have an ornament/decoration too! The pattern is here if anyone is interested. I'm trying to use up the partial skeins of green and red Christmas yarn I have and  it's taking a while. Maybe I'll put pompoms made from it on Christmas packages too lol! Y'all have a nice night and good day tomorrow.

Opi Is in Photo Contest

Kodak is having a photo contest on Facebook. If you could, I'd appreciate it if you would vote for my Opi. Here's the page http://apps.facebook.com/holiday-pets/entries

I asked for help from my crochetville friends but it was kicked off the board. I don't know how many times I have voted for contests other members were in and I almost feel "picked on" over this. Sigh...

A Christmas Cartoon from 1933

As I was watching this cartoon, the thought occurred to me that there are more than a few differences between old cartoons and the new. Obviously, the primative animation and the black/white vs. color are the obvious differences. Did you ever notice that there is very little talking and viewers have to use their imaginations to imagine what is being said and happening? This is an oldie and it came out in 1933 when my dad was a mere babe in arms. I wonder if his older siblings saw it at the movie theater?  Enjoy everyone!
