Animal Crackers in my Soup.... in my sack!

Tags and little Shirley buttons for the gift bags.....
land of peppermint sticks.... they're in the bag, too!
and of course, Animal Crackers......
in my soup! (Only 60 cents a can!)Captain January covers for Memorabilia Booklets....
Gift bags of Shirley goodies.... There will be 12 of these!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Moving right along.... Only three days to go until the big day. Tomorrow is testing all day in my room plus mid-term reports... Then tomorrow night I hope to finish cleaning my quadrant of the house and my bathroom... fix up the display of Mom's Shirley things. Foo foo the dining room table (Where is Sandra Lee when you need her?) and finish these little sacks. They are so cute. We went with little favors that come from the "Animal Crackers in my Soup" song... Animal crackers, soup, lollipops (which I forgot to snap a picture of those) and peppermint sticks. I made a book for everyone of Shirley Trivia, cool photos, filmography, interviews, listings of doll items, etc. It's in the colorful Captain January covers. My mother has been a Merry Maid all week. She can clean me right up into a tree stand, that she can... and this week she did. That little lady did major cleaning on five rooms, ON A WALKER..... and she isn't really all that tired. I am impressed as heck... and sure hope that isn't contagious! haha..
I am putting the staples in the club booklets tomorrow... and our taxes are all done and filed.... What else this week? It is kind of fun... tomorrow night is a deep freeze here, so I finally knuckled under and bought a couple of pretty silks to put in the planters by the front door... I don't think reals will survive.... Have a fun week.... I hope the tablescape photos will be tomorrow.... and the mantel display... We'll see.
