Advent - days 1-6 - quotes

Well December has sprung up on us and no-one is doing the calendar - shame! I havent got time to do daily pictures and maybe no-one else has either, so I thought I would try to do a quote a day but doubt there will always be a picture. Below - Here's mine and my grand-daughter's dolls getting in the party spirit already.

Here's days 1 to 6 - and I will do a single one each day til Christmas if I can.

The smells of Christmas are the smells of childhood
― Richard Paul Evans, The Christmas Box

Christmas is doing a little something extra for someone.
― Charles M. Schulz

My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?
― Bob Hope

Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before! What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas...perhaps...means a little bit more!
― Dr. Seuss, How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

I stopped believing in Santa Claus when I was six. Mother took me to see him in a department store and he asked for my autograph.
– Shirley Temple

Santa Claus has the right idea. Visit people once a year.
- Victor Borge

Love the quotes love the Shirley Temple one.Very Happy but thank you so much Fennie for posting some quotes each day wonderful idea. How lucky little Beanie is to have so many dolls I expect they all have names too, does Beanie get one each year?

Fennie's Avatar Beanie anyway is more into stuffed, cats and bears and camels and rats and any stuffed members of a menagerie at all. I think she has a rag doll but it has to take its place with the animals. Theo is into live birds and robots.

Fairy Nuff's Avatar LaughingI love the Shirley Temple quote.

AWOL yesterday thanks to O2 not putting any money in the meter.

I had very few dolls and more bears and other soft toys - as well as my fort and soldiers.
