The January Tree

Mom couldn't bear to put all of her Christmas trees away and lose the festive lights that make her happy when it's cold and dreary and this season, far too rainy, so she took off the red flowers and replaced them with blue hydrangeas☺
Guess what!
Mackie and Jett sent me January pressies!   I have my very own shopping bag!
Let's hit those store for the January sales, mom!
 And they sent me yummy treats!
Thank you, thank you!       You boys are excellent shoppers and I love my January gifts!

Can we do a make-over on the tree in February too and will there be gifts, mom?!

Love ya lots♥


  1. How cool to have your own shopping bag! My mom takes down all the Christmas stuff a few days after Christmas around here. She says after the day is over, she is moving on. Glad your mom can still enjoy it as she likes.

  2. wow we had no clue that newmans has dog food too!!! is it as tasty as their bbq sauces?

  3. We once visited a home where the tree stood all year long! Hearts on it in February ... bunnies & eggs at Easter time ... sunbrellas and beach towels in the summer and on, and on and on.
    Don't know if it got pressies underneath each month ...

  4. Love you both lots! Sorry to have been MIA, truly enjoyed the pomander story and may try one myself, in about a week and a half.

  5. Molly your MOM had a great giant idea on the January tree. The blues are beautiful. OMDs Jett and Mackie are too sweet
    Mom could do a heart tree in Feb and a Shamrock Tree in March.

  6. We think there should be trees and lights in the house all year long.

  7. That was a good idea with the blue flowers. What color are they going to be next month?

  8. I loves your January tree. That's a pawesome idea!

  9. We think you should leave the tree up year round and decorate it differently for each month. Those sure were nice pressies the boys sent you.

  10. That's a great idea. there should be good reasons to have that tree up all year! And Mackie and Jett do really know what a girl wants.

  11. That is a great idea for the tree. We bigified it so we could see the pretty flowers.

    Nice pressies. Paul Newman makes great treats, and Mom loves his Keurig k-cups for her coffer:)

  12. What a good idea by your Mom to enjoy the tree for longer. I always hate taking ours down too, and I usually leave out our different snowmen and some scented candles.
    Yes, fill that shopping bag back up with more treats - isn't that pretty!

  13. We think that's a great idea Molly, A tree for every occasion...and pressies to go under it too!

  14. A wonderful idea to do a seasonal tree!! Keeps things always festive

  15. What a brilliant idea for the tree. Jackie and Jett are great shoppers. Lady says with Valentine,s day you should get lots of treats in February.

  16. I LOVE your idea!!! You could leave them up at least til the weather gets warm and change them every month, hell, you could leave them up ALL YEAR!

  17. We love the idea having lights up all year.
    It is nice to turn off the lamps and
    let the tree light glow.

  18. That's a good idea to redecorate the tree. I still have my Village up. Love your shopping bag.

  19. I love your shopping bag! It's nice to keep a little Christmas cheer around.

  20. I loves your tree! Who's to say you can't keep a tree up all year??? Next month, just puts some red hearts on it, and it will be your Valentines tree! Then put green shamrocks for March, and spring flowers for April...wells, you get the gist!
    LOVES the bag! I am so jealous!

  21. I think you are quite right in leaving your tree and lights up. We have two sets of warm white lights which we leave up all year especially when it is cold and dreary!

    Your new bag looks wonderful and yummy biscuits what great presents and after Christmas too. We got the gifts you and your Mom sent us and they were absolutely wonderful, we were so so happy when the box arrived and we saw what you sent, thank you again so much.

    Have a wondeful Thursday.

    Hugs, Susie & Treaclexx

    oooohhhhh I love your mum's tree idea... pawhaps this could be extended to white for February, yellow for March, pink for April..... (looking for an excuse to not have to pack that tree away! hugs and wags YAM-aunty xxx

  23. Hi hi hi! Ojo here! That is a lovely shopping bag! And a lovely tree! (Our people like the lights still too!) And also those are very lovely treats!!

  24. Charlee: "Ooh, I wish I had my own shopping bag! Just imagine the things I could buy!"
    Chaplin: "I'm imagining you coming home with a bag full of 500 little foam balls."
    Charlee: "Well, of course."

  25. I'd love to have a year round tree. A friend of mine did and changed the ornaments with the seasons. In the summer she hung little glass hummingbirds on it. They were beautiful and reflected the lights. Perhaps when we have fewer dogs running around I'll have a tree.
