Grabs your attention, right...

I mean, what's the connection?  right?

Well, today my new tree topper arrived

which made for a glorious day at the Desk Of Drama

and as soon as I arrived home

up she went to take her place of honor.

Isn't she darling??

This beautiful 'Marie' ornament

is from THIS shop on Etsy

and since my little white tree is, well, a mere 4' tall

she became the tree topper.
Tiny pink birds nesting in the tree

are delighted with her arrival

I just love her!!, as for the elf...

 Well, that is MY little bird

sporting her fab striped socks

VERY elf-like

EXCEPT instead of making toys

SHE makes dinner......

like this wonderful delight tonight of

roasted brussel sprouts

and then she cleans up dishes!!

It's been so long since anyone has done that for me

that I feel like I am coming home to a little bit of heaven.

I love my little elf.

Rella, your tree topper is gorgeous! I've been thinking tonight that I sure wish I had made a little Marie tree.
And how wonderful that you daughter cooked for you, that's always a sweet treat! The brussel sprouts look yummy!

Oh I love your tree topper! Is that a Dawn original? I love your white tree with white lights too. I bought one last week, only to find out at home it has pastel colored lights. Very nice, but not what I had in mind...ended up perfect for my daughter though!
How lucky for you that you have a Cooking and cleaning elf! Those are rare I hear ; )

Dawn said...

She certainly looks at home! Love the pink birds, your tree looks gorgeous. I'm so pleased she made it to you in time to take her place for Christmas XXX

Good day, Rella...
Your tree is so Christmasy (snowy white, and I like the colors of the birds), and the tree topper looks quite at home.

I like brussel sprouts, too, and yours look wonderfully appetizing. When's dinner? Have a fantastic day!

Perhaps Santa will bring you all an elf for Christmas......sadly, mine will be leaving me that very day...but I can't pout, I will have had her with me for a month and a half.
