Showin' Tellin' and Jingle Bellin'

That song from the 50's just won't let me alone today. It's called "At the Hop" . Danny and the Juniors sang it. Do you recall?

Let's go to the hop
Let's go to the hop (oh baby)
Let's go to the hop (oh baby)
Let's go to the hop

"To the MMP Christmas in July Hop"

It all started Saturday. Miss Sweetpea Pittypat came on over from her Emporium with a load of goodies for Christmas in July at Make Mine Pink. Now, we all agree Miss Sweetpea is the sweetest bunny ever to live in Harrington Woods. And she has outdone herself. So sit back and enjoy the pictures of some of her dreamy creations. By the way, I think Chunky Bunny and Miss Sweetpea would make a great match. Alas, she is not willing to leave Harrington Woods even for a day, even to meet Hunky Chunky.....Oops, back to subject, and here we go to the pre-Hop Hop.

And last but not least, there is that old Andy Williams Christmas Classic;

The Holiday Season
It's the holiday season
With whoop-de-doo and Dickory dock,
And don't forget to hang up your sock,
Cause at just exactly 12 o'clock,
He'll be coming down the chimney down,
He'll be coming down the chimney down,
Coming down the chimney down.

Hey my girlfriend,
Too bad Miss Sweetpea cannot venture out to visit with Chunky Bunny. Of course Princess Chloe might get a tad jealous if Sweetpea were to try and snag her honeybun. :)

Great CinJ goodies. Love them.

Very very what you do!
