30-day writing challenge ~ Day 25 (Worst Christmas Ever)

Worst Christmas Ever.  Day 25 of the worst writing challenge EVER (JK!)  Nicky of WWFC blames Dufus Claus for today's topic.

Why this theme on my birthday?  Yes, yes, I know - six months from Christmas, works well for receiving gifts, evenly spaced and all.

There have been many worst Christmases for me, it is my least favorite holiday, but I still get wrapped up in all of the festivities.  In 2011, I did a blog post a day for the month of December, JEEZ was that hard work.  I took lots and lots of photographs and ended up liking the final postings.  This December I will produce Kitschmas postings, lots of kitsch, perhaps a little glitz, certainly all around merriment.

Here is my birthday present to myself - a lead crystal lamp purchased at Goodwill on 16th Street in Sacramento for $20.  I thought it would be worth it even if the lamp didn't work, but it does!

Here it is, in all of its gloriousness ~

I've been on vacay for the past few days.  It is a damn shame I have to come to Starbucks each morning for the free wifi, just a damn shame ... *grins*

I can't even begin to imagine posting EVERY day in December! Not only the crazy Xmas prep, but we also celebrate my oldest son's birthday, my boyfriend's birthday and my sister-in-law's birthday! You really are a brave, brave soul...

Happy birthday to you! :-)

Happy Birthday to you!!!

I love your lamp! It's beautiful!

Christmas used to exhaust me. Now it's much lower keyed and I can live with that! My birthday is more important than Christmas! (To me anyway!)

I just love a good thrift shop find. I do mostly clothes, but once hubby got a new radio for his car for $7 - it worked too. Happy B-day!!
