Hi everyone. It’s Millie & Walter here. We participated in the Blogville Christmas Gift Exchange again this year and were paired with a couple of the collies at All Things Collie. This is a new blog to us and these collies are all very beautiful and talented. Many are show champions and therapy dogs.

Look at all these pressies!
Mom said not to touch them yet Millie.

Is this better?
If we pose nice then we get to open them.

After some posing mom let us start opening them…er…we really mean that Walter started opening them.

This one looks like a toy.

I love ripping the paper off these pressies.

Walter had lots of fun ripping the paper off all our pressies. Millie has never been very interested in that sort of thing. We got lots of great pressies from the Collies.

Look at all this great stuff!

Let’s take a closer look at those toys.

These toys are made for tough chewers like Walter

Mom said we couldn’t try the treats yet since there were so many of them. Here is a video of some of the action of us opening our pressies.

If you can’t see the video you can go here to view it.

This Squeaky Skull is lots of fun.

Let me see if I can get the squeaker out of this skull.

Oh well, mom wouldn’t let me just chew on the skull toy. She said something about it lasting longer that way.

We want to thank the Collies for all these great pressies. We’ve tried a few of the treats already and they are great. Mom just didn’t get any photographic evidence of it. It’s always fun to participate in the Blogville Gift Exchange and we want to thank Oreo and his mom for organizing it.

Hi everyone! It’s Millie & Walter here. We sure have a lot of great friends that sent us some wonderful cards for the holidays.

Thanks for sending Walter & I so many beautiful cards.

We love all our cards whether they came by snail mail or email.

We love all our cards whether they came by snail mail or email.

As usual our pawrents came a distant second on the card count compared to us but we have to say that most of their cards came from doctors and companies they do business with.

It’s just a little pathetic what lengths our pawrents will go to up their card count. Well here is the final result.

As you can see we totally kicked butt on our pawrents. Here is a look at all our cards (including our pawrents).

Hi everyone it’s Cindy here. Today I want to tell you about another Christmas project I did.

Crochet Christmas Candy Boxes

Crochet Christmas Candy Boxes

I’m the membership secretary for the Genesee Valley Quilt Club and as an officer I meet once a month just after our monthly meeting with my fellow officers. During the November meeting one of the veteran members told us newbys that it was customary during our December officer meeting to exchange Christmas gifts.

Solid Red with Red/White/Green Twist

The news of this sent my head spinning. What to get or make for these four ladies? I wanted something that could be practical and fun. I thought about the small box I crocheted for myself a while back and decided that might make a nice gift.

Solid Red with Solid White

After scouring my stash of crafting supplies I decided to use up some of the Christmas colored cotton yarn I had purchased last year. I hadn’t used any of it yet so I knew I would have enough to make these small boxes. Each box is made using two strands of cotton yarn held together and is all single crochet. I used solid red, solid white, variegated red/green/white, and red/green/white twist in different combinations to achieve the effects you see.

Solid Red with Variegated Red/White/Green

There are five separate pieces that I used single crochet to sew together. I like how the single crochet seam helps to hold them up too since I didn’t want to use any stiffener on them.  I made them what I thought would be a good size to use for candy or anything you might like.

Red/White/Green Twist with Red/White/Green Twist Variegated

As you can see I filled them with Lindt chocolates too. The ladies all seemed to like them, but I’m not sure if they thought the boxes were nice or they just liked what was inside the boxes 😉

Happy New Year everyone! I’ve been wanting to show you one of the other Christmas decorations we have, our ornament wreath. It’s in our front hall were the lighting couldn’t be worse for photographing it so I kept forgetting to get some pictures. Today I noticed it was as well lit as it was ever going to be so I snapped a few pictures for you.

Our Christmas Wreath

Our Christmas Wreath

Long before Millie & Walter came along we started using a couple of artificial wreaths to display our ornaments for Christmas. The wreath is fairly large and is a great way to keep things out of reach of curious puppies.

Many of the ornaments on the wreath are of birds and other wildlife we see around our house.

Some of the ornaments are gardening tools and some Santa’s with wildlife or gardening themes.
