Socks and delightful tree ornaments

It is freezing again today but the sun helps to brighten the day. We have had a trip along to the next town for some shopping. We called in the charity shop to donate 2 Wedgwood plates for them to sell
While there I had to have a look at what was in of course:)
We came away with 2 teddies, one a jaunty looking character in pants
Just look at that face:)
second one still had his tags on
Total for both bears £1, yes just 50p each. I don't know why I had to have them, not something I normally collect, I think that Laal Bear person might have had something to do with it.
anyway enough of the sentimentality, I've finished a pair of socks. I deliberately made them different as I love to wear unconventional things and I know the recipient is a little that way inclined as well.

As I mentioned the other day we went for lunch with the Bears, I picked out a couple of yule tree gifts for my grandsons and Mr Mog and I thought we better have one also.
Mr Mog chose the snowman who he thinks is female from the face:). I chose a tree.. Aren't they sweet? If you are in this country they can be purchased from the Laal Bear, she has a few different styles.
