This is Bertha…..a friendly greeter in the yard of a very sweet lady, Patty, who makes wonderful Scottie dog ceramics. I just had to share Bertha with y’all! She has attitude and curves to boot! She’d make a cute girlfriend to the scarecrow in The Wizard Of Oz!

Just wanted to say HOWDY and now I am off to finish my Christmas decorating…….....confession…….I am Mrs. Slowsky!

That Betha sure has style and yes, the Wizard of Oz Scarecrow would sure like her.

I adore Bertha! That dress is just suits her and she looks like maybe she's doing a little happy dance in those shoes of hers.

Don't worry about being slow. I haven't even started to decorate, or buy anything! I've had a quilting project that had to be finished first so I didn't allow myself to start on Christmas until it was done. I just now finished it, so now I can get my hubby to drag the stuff out of the attic and begin to decorate the house.
Bertha is very cute. I love her attitude!

Bertha is fabulous! Don't feel bad we were to put up our tree today but here it is 6:10PM and no tree yet. I suggested to my husband lets put it up first thing tomorrow morning and just RELAX tonight. Maybe watch a few Christmas movies. Becky...we had our first snow today. I would say we got about 2" of the fluffy stuff. Really is beautiful to see during the Christmas season. Have a lovely weekend Becky!!

Pokey said...

Bertha is a hoot! Thanks for sharing.

Tricia Anne said...

Oh boy! Miss Bertha is too cute! I love how she stands guard! :o)
I am taking my decorating a little bit slow this year too. :o)
I just posted a question on my blog. If you get a chance can you help me? Thanks! Trish

Miss Jean said...

Oh, goodness, I love Bertha!!! What a hoot!

You may be Mrs. Slowsky, but I'm slower than you! I have pointsettias and a few candles and that is it!

Decorating is an "on-going" thing in my house too! Just got the tree done - now another to do in the sunroom...then time to decorate the front outside porch...then I can finally say "finished!'
Happy decorating!

Pondside said...

I'm slow too, this year. No tree and no indoor decorations up yet. Bertha looks like a big-boned girl, but has a unique charm.

Maggie and Mitch said...

Miss Bertha is adorable! She surely is one snappy dresser!

Sinta Renee said...

Bertha is a beauty! Nice outfit! I am still working on my hoiday decor! One entire day wasn't enough! But it's enjouable... like a slow novel!
