Spot the Difference

These Father Christmas’ caught my attention before Christmas and were a very reasonable £5 each but I knew they would be going in the sale and seen as I don’t actually have the home to display them I thought it would be a frivolous purchase and thought if I am meant to have them then I’d be able to get them reduced.

Alas my visits to various branches were fruitless, the only ones I found were covered in sticky polystyrene and I decided it wasn’t meant to be…. until now!

Popping into the store yesterday I spotted 2 of them hidden in a corner…. Grabbing them with excitement I took them to the counter where I noticed one was missing his bobble from his Santa’s hat.

I told the sales assistant I would just take the one in tact but when she offered him to me for 50p I couldn’t leave him behind! I’m sure I can fashion a pom pom for his hat from something!
Why am I showing you a photo of 3 paper wallets?

Well hopefully they are going to become something like this....

This is taken from Mary Engelbreit's Home Companion October/November 07 edition and I'm hoping to something similar for my friends who are coming to Las Vegas with me.

Today is the last day for my Giveaway so please leave your comments here. I won't be pulling names from the hat until approx 6pm tomorrow so I will include any comments left up until that point and I think I might even be able to add some extras into the winners package.

I'll leave you with an article in today's evening paper about the limited edition jar of Marmite I'm offering!
