PREDS... Tell your DH that those are beautiful wood carvings!  Great job.  I agree, he should sell them and at the Q!  Hey, you could be the vendor and we'd tune in to watch you....yay!

 

As far as xmas purchasing today - nope, not me.  I have too much from years of buying and for the past two years, I stocked up on items from Lisa Robertson's xmas decor.  I am glad I did, since she is no longer here.  Lisa's items are so elegant and stunning.  I miss Lisa and it's just not the same without her presenting xmas. so, good news - I am saving money!  Have a great day everyone!

My uncle carved wood made so many unique things. I have some of his work. Takes time and patience . He also did it for a hobby for over 50 years.

I maybe, MAYBE can get behind Christmas in July on July 25.  However, I think this is ridiculous to have an all day x-mas event on July 1 and another 2 day x-mas in July event the 18th and 19th of this month.

 

And of course we all know, this is the beginning of the x-mas push for QVC.  From now until the actual day, it is full steam ahead for QVC and x-mas shows.  There will be at least 1 day every month from now through December of nothing but x-mas programming.

I don't mind it.  It is better than a day of Apple, Dyson, Clarisonic or WEN.  We all know these days are intended to clear out old merchandise for the most part.  I vowed that, this year, I wouldn't buy anything, but Valerie is tempting me with mercury glass products.

I really dislike these shows. I understand that it is an online shopping service and it might take a while to get to people, but seriously - 6 MONTHS before Christmas?

 

talk about s-ucking the life out it.

Re: Merry Christmas!! NOT!!!

When my Dad was alive, he and my stepmother used to LOVE this ....... apparently the easy pays allow seniors on a budget to get a head start on Christmas shopping with easy pay so regular holiday shopping was less "painful".
