WILLY NILLY FRIDAY FIVE


With Christmas coming up, the gift catelogs are rolling in.  I enjoy browsing through them but rarely buy anything I see.  Like last week, I thought I would show you a few that caught my eye.  


1. I have a collection of Santas in a box down in the basement, but haven't added to them in a long time.  Always enjoy looking in the stores and the catelogs, and I imagine a new one on my shelf just like the one here.

2.  I thought this was cute too.  I would probably think way too cute to use.

3. I still have a lot of old vinyl albums but nothing to play them on.  Maybe?  Check here to see.

4. I enjoy anything to do with Agatha Christie.  I know I would like
this collection for those cold winter nights when I feel like turning on the TV.

5. And this little guy, I can just see him standing on my shelf.  Look below to see his companion, the character also a favorite of mine.

  3. We used to get some catalogs and over time have called the companies to request they not send them. Over the year, the only one we ordered from was the L.L. Bean catalog and usually for slippers or shirts. Now, however, there is an L.L. Bean outlet store very near and no sales tax in NH so no need to order by mail or even online from them. I think the catalogs are helpful for folks living in areas where shopping areas are not nearby as when we lived in VA and the nearest major shopping area was 90 min.

  4. I browse the catalogues but never see anything I could crave over and for the first year ever Joe and I have decided not to buy presents for each other or other family members. We're doling out money instead simply because we can't get out to the shops (or rather he can't). It will feel very strange.

  5. All my vinyl is probably in a bad state now after living in attics and stuff. There are more and more, and cheaper, solutions for playing records now.

  6. Denise, I love browsing through catalogues. If I wanted to choose something from the things you have chosen here it would be the Agatha Christie one. This will bring hours of enjoyment. Of course, the classic vinyl record player would as well, so that would be my second choice. :)

  8. Denise, I hate it when the catalogs start rolling in! :D I know people have gift shopping in mind now, which is why I posted two giveaways in a row, but I hope everyone won't get too carried away and act all crazy in the stores!

  10. I really like Agatha Christie's autobiography and her memoir. Some day you might like to check them out too.

  11. I use to get a few things from catalogues but the price of postage and packaging puts me off now and I would much rather buy at small local makers that sell nearby. Xxx

  13. It took me a while to get into watching Poirot but now I am going through them on Netflix. That Santa is cute, and so is the apron.

  15. Cute bird ornaments. I haven't read Agatha Christie since I was a teen. Maybe it's time to revisit those old mysteries.
