Merry RUBY Mosaic of Christmas Critters

Make Time for Small Reflections

Happy Holidays
from Molly, Ms Kitty and
me ... they will return

hopefully next week
but today have consented
to take a back seat

to these neighborhood
holiday critters ... don't they
all look quite festive ;-)

Mosaic Monday

and Ruby Tuesday too
If you've already seen THIS Ruby Tuesday post
I've shared another at Happily Retired Gal ... just because ;-)
This week I've also shared Blue Monday Mosaics at
Happily Retired Gal and Sacred Ruminations

Belated addendum

Reading comments I've
noticed many visitors
are 'confused' by the

'tumbleweed' critter
representing a 'snowman'
(pictured on the left)

... on the ledge at right
is Humpty Dumpty sitting
high up on a ledge

Christmas at the beach
here in California
isn't ever 'white'

so we improvise ...
I forget sometimes that folks
need explanations ;-)

Small Reflections ... Smile Back

Thought for Today
"And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more." Dr. Seuss

I really like the critters you found in your neighborhood. The critter on the ledge is really something, but at least he has his Santa hat on.

Melissa B. said...

The critters in my neighborhood are frolicking in 2 feet of snow! It's pretty funny when we let the cats out...

Well, without snow you can't make a snowman. But your SoCal improvisation of a snowbale (what to call it?) works just fine here. And it won't melt!
