Socks. I never give much thought to them. I have been wearing black, short Smart Wool socks for years. There was a time (back in the day) when I use to wear knee socks and thigh high socks. Because I'm outdoors more now I was looking for some thigh high socks and came across Sock Dreams. They have the most amazing selection of socks, all kinds of socks.

Hmmm, I wonder if there is a pear or lime museum?
I had never heard of the Keisuke Serizawa Calendars before. These were popular with U.S. officers' wives in Japan at the end of WWII.
Oh good grief, someone invented a snowman kit.
I think this is a bit ridiculous, but if they are going to have a man, then they need to have a woman kit. What's wrong with using some items from your home, get creative. When I was a kid we would use and old hat of my dads (he never had a top hat) and an old scarf, etc. Oprah even has a kit listed as one of her favorite things. Now come on O.
This will probably be my last post before the holidays. Everyone have a wonderful holiday. May your hearts be light.
