Warning: This jolly fellow is contagious!

Yesterday this jolly little fellow showed up in my mailbox! I should warn you that I do believe he's contagious! Here's why: When I first laid eyes on him, my eyes sparkled just like he does in this pic - & my mouth turned up like his too(!) & instantly I felt a bit flush & feverish ... as if I were warming up from the inside out.

I suspect that only snowmen made here, w/ melted glass(!), by my dear friend - could be so heartwarming. Incidentally she's the one who sent me this last year... &, in so doing, inspired me to celebrate Advent by practicing random acts of kindness (see my sidebar) - which has been so fun & meaningFULL :) - & from there it developed into a New Year's resolution.

I'm tellin' ya this thing spreads like wildfire! If you feel your heart warming, chances are you've got it too. If you want to know for sure .... see how you affect others. If it's in such a way that brings a sparkle to their eyes that wasn't there before - or causes the corners of their mouth to turn up - that's a sure sign that you've got it. ---If their cheeks flush ... well - at that point, you are highly contagious! :)

I love her candy cane tea lights! Does she take online orders? I didn't see any prices. These would be great gifts!

Such talented folks, it's wonderful that they found something so beautiful that they love to do.

I think it's wonderful that you're continuing the RAOK. I've snuck in a few acts, but it hasn't been foremost on my mind. Might be a good thing to add to my New Year's resolutions?

Best wishes!

Hi Lupine. I think she does take orders on line. There is a "contact us" on their website so you could probably connect w her there. She gave me some tealights when she was here recently & they are very pretty.
