In 2007 when I was at Walt Disney World for the second time, I went into the “Disney’s Days of Christmas” store in Downtown Disney. There was a small room with all other seasons in that store. When I saw Minnie and Figaro on that carved pumpkin, I had to have it. In 2011, I came back and picked up Tinkerbell. Unfortunately they had only “Frozen” costumes and knickknacks in that room, on my forth visit in 2015. Aren’t these figurines adorable? I have to ask Kevin, if he can order me some more spooky Mickey & Friends items of Jim Shore/Disney.

In 2011 we were at Walt Disney World (this was my 3rd trip to WDW). Two of the many characters we met were Thumper an his girlfriend. On the first day, we saw only Thumper. And we’ve got a photo with him and Katelynn together. A few days later, we went back to Animal Kingdom. And this time, Thumper was accompanied by his lady friend.

Planting Bulb Flowers

It is perfect weather for doing some garden work and plant some bulbs, before the temperatures will drop tomorrow, again.Β  In the greenhouse I added half a dozen of tulips and half a dozen of narcissus. The narcissus won’t take long, before they will open and show their pretty flower faces. The tulips need a little bit longer. In the garden, I planted some bulbs of Canna Lilies, Crocosmia, Dahlias, and Tiger Lilies for Late Spring to Autumn.

A Candle Jar For Every Celebration II: Valentine’s Day πŸ’—

This morning I sprayed the jar with Frost Spray paint and let it dry in the sun. In the meantime I printed out the Mickey & Minnie silhouettes, I found on Pinterest. Once the jar was dry, I cut out the silhouettes and glued them carefully on the glass. Those little mouse tails always need a little extra attention. I usually put a little bit of glue on my finger, before I put it on the fine tails. It helps to prevent a mess. And I always can wash my hand afterwards. While the glue tried, I added someΒ πŸ’—-stickers and tinsel stems (pipe cleaners), which I purchased from the Dollar Store. Adding a tea candle to it gives it a romantic atmosphere. Now, all I need is some chocolate to celebrate the work I’ve done. πŸ˜‰

Mickey & Minnie Garden Decoration

Since about five years I’m looking for cute Mickey & Minnie garden statues. The ones I found online were either made out of poor material or out of my price range. Yesterday, I went to a local store. And there they were sitting in the shelf: Mickey & Minnie about 10 inches tall, hard plastic material, and for only $10/each. I had to “adopt” these two sweet mice, where they can make adorable decorations between the flowers in my greenhouse from here on forward. I might do something extra with them for Valentine’s Day.Β πŸ’žπŸ’–πŸ’—
