You’re under arrest for putting Christmas decorations out in May! hahaha!

Don’t know who this little guy is or even what he is wearing but I thought he was cute, so he came here to live. (from the old thrift store of course) And he wasn’t quite ready to be packed away until next winter!

And have you ever seen cuter Christmas balls? They looked sweet in this old dish. (They are small!)

I also wanted to show how pretty my bookcase looks with the ‘new’ reader that Judy sent me.

All of my old children’s books that I cherish.

Did you notice the clock is always set on 3:30?

That’s when school was out back in the olden days when I went to school.

Have fun today

and take time to PLAY!

Love your new things. I really think that is great to have only your little children's books in a book case. It looks perfect for the clock to be set at 3:30. xoxo,Susie

Hi! Just came across your blog and love it! I'm your newest follower.

Diane said...

Those are really cute ornaments-- love the colors! Love all the kid books too! Nice display.

Debby Ray said...

What a sweet collection of books. I love the way you have them displayed with all of the other goodies...the clock, bell, etc. The Christmas balls are lovely too!

Vee said...

He is a cute little fellow! Diane, you'll be able to have your own thrift store. Those are sweet ornaments with the ice and frost. And your schoolbook shelves always look cute!

School used to go until 2:30 here, but has extended to 3:00. I think a little longer day makes sense, especially for getting out before the end of June. Every town has its own schedule, I suppose. And I really don't like early release day, which happens to be Wednesday. For what?!

Diane,
Yes those thrift stores can put Christmas out all year long. I know our thrift has lots of Christmas things, I try and walk fast and close my eyes. You did get some cute and pretty things.
Yes School was out at 3:30, I remember it well.

hugs,

Red Rose Alley said...

Oh, this little guy is so cute. I can see why you wanted to put him out now. And the balls are pretty - they are so vintage looking. My favorite was the children's book. How special that book shelf is displaying all your children's books. What a treasured space this is.

love,
~Sheri

Shug said...

You remind me of one of my sweet friends.... (a retired school teacher) Her home is full of all kinds of cute things...School books galore and lots and lots of cute knick-naks that her kiddos have given her. some of these things dating back 40 years ago.
Sweet!!!

September Violets said...

I can't tell for sure, but your little elf looks like he has lipstick "kisses" all over him! No wonder he's surrendering ;) I have some very old children's books too. A couple were given to my mother by her teacher and they're very special to me (and the stories are so creepy!!). Our school used to let out at 3:00 and then it was a bus ride home, and then we went horseback riding till dinnertime. Good memories! Wendy x

Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

LOL anything WINTER related is on my "black" list but I have to agree -- he IS awfully cute as are the Christmas balls. What an adorable idea to set the clock to 3:30! Yes, those WERE the days -- except I believe our dismissal time was 3:15 . . . go figure.

bj said...

He is so cute...and I love the pretty Christmas balls. I sure "ain't" near ready for Christmas, tho.
Let the summer begin...:))

Cookie said...

What a colorful post! Loved seeing all the red when your blog popped up on my reading list. Great goodies and I think your bookshelf is just fabulous. No trouble imagining that you would, of course, think about such a charming detail as the time on your clock.

Weekend-Windup said...

Great to see all your things. Love the little cute red color chair!

NanaDiana said...

Your shelves look lovely, Diane. It is really a cute little piece you found there...with his hands in the air no less! The Christmas balls are so cute! xo Diana

Noelle the dreamer said...

Diane, you have a fun way to display cherished items! I laughed at your Christmas decoration: we are leaving for the mountains and were told to expect low thirties...Br...Winter weather and putting us in mind of the Holidays!
Very nice collection of children stories!

Sam I Am...... said...

I love that little guy and he looks very old...he might be a valuable antique but what do I know?
I love your bookcase with all your "readers"....how sweet to have a special place like that and I knew right away what 3:30 meant. LOL!
Your Christmas balls are darling and all your decorating.
