Jeannie In A Bottle, Baby

P1010094


I may not have a Jeannie in a bottle, but I did find this

super cool rusty cast metal Jeannie looking urn a few

months back.  No luck having three wishes to be

granted, but it does make for a cute display piece to

set my little pinecone pixies.




Just added some large exselsior tucked in a few trees

(yup, those trees again) and some little cute faced

gents.  Their expressions melt my heart.



Little guy on the right is saying to the chap on the

left, “Man, you sure can

play that sax beautifully! 

Please play me another song!  How about

‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’

…all jazzy and blues soundin’.”

Now I have Christina Aguilera’s “Jeannie In a Bottle”

song in my head.  And speaking of her, anyone

watching The Voice this season?  I’m hooked and

hoping for Cassadee to win, but am fond of Terry,

too.  Love his Scottish accent…Just saying….

Love your "little people"...so cute. I didn't get into The Voice this year like I have in the past. They find some awesome talent though. xo Diana

This is adorable! Oh no, now I have that song stuck in my mind too. I haven't been watching it, but always hear the buzz.

I just love this vignette! I was sold when I saw the rusty urn. Those two little guys are just adorable and you can never go wrong with bottle brush trees.

Your Pixies look right at home in that rusty urn. Who knows what magic they'll stir up now that they're out and about!

Your little elves sure are cute. Maybe if you rub the lamp you will get your wish. I love the show the voice too. I was partial to Melanie who went home last week.

Hey Becky I know that sax player, I think I saw him in New Orleans about 45yr. ago. Oh I know it was him because it was the night my hubby purposed. Yup, he's still playing...looking real good for his age. Love your rusty iron urn. Of course I am into The Voice and I want Cassadee to win too. Fantastic talent on there.

Simply Shelley said...

Cute ..hope you are having a wonderful Christmas season....blessings to you and yours.

JG said...

I'm hooked on "The Voice", also! The top 4 are all so talented, it's difficult to choose only one. Will be watching the 3 next week. Your little elves are cute.

Becky, I think that's the prefect "Jeannie" urn, and I think your little friends agree! How cute they are!

When I was little, we had the neatest little collection of elves dressed in red. It seems that there was an elf band, and my aunt had one, too. I love the fact that the bodies are out of pine cones. So cute and sweet and vintage.

Was thinking of you today and wanted to drop by to wish you a very Merry Christmas!

XO,

Sheila

I'm sure you're busy with the holidays. I haven't been in blogland much over the past several months, but wanted to let you know about the video I just posted of Jordan and his wife. I think you'll love it. Have a wonderful Christmas!!

Hey girl! The card and the little Scottie was so very very sweet and he hangs on my tree as we speak! I must send you picture of the fire place. We have about finished the room but the wood burning stove is in and it looks wonderful on the tile. We moved into the new room three days before Christmas so I was frazzled over the holidays but as usual being with my son and brother were all I needed to enjoy the day... Praying that you had a day filled with laughter and love.. You are special in my heart... I will send pictures soon...

I love the urn with the little people. I have not watch The Voice, I got hooked on the X-factor. My favorite did not win the competition however. I wanted Carly to win.
