Calling Cupid

I see Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen, Comet and ________, and Donner and Blitzen.

What happened to Cupid? He was the one that got away. The reindeer ornament I never found at CVS. I had Rudolph, too, but he fell victim to a curious kitten and shattered into a bazillion pieces on our living room floor many years ago. No matter how many CVS locations I visited; though, I never found a Cupid.

As I type this, Studly Doright is searching eBay for the little guy. If he’s successful I might have him look for Rudolph, too. In the meantime I’m going to secure the remaining reindeer against a cat attack. The one responsible for Rudolph’s demise still resides at Doright Manor.

Peace, people!

    1. Thank you! Studly found my CVS Cupid on eBay! These were very inexpensive, but delightful little ornaments that the drugstore chain sold ten or so years ago. We couldn’t find Rudolph, this time around, though.

  1. I buy a painted glass one every year from Pier One. The kind that is painted on the inside of the bulb and they come in a little velvet box. I try to get one with the year on it, so far I have 21 of them. When my mom got sick a few years ago I let a few Christmases go buy without buying one and later I was able to find the 2 years I missed on eBay! I hate a partial collection!

    1. At one time I had multiple trees. It was absolutely beautiful. They had themes (like the reindeer tree). Nowadays I pick out my favorites from every past tree and stick them on one big tree. No theme. No color coordination. But with Christmas trees I think anything goes. It took me a long time to work that out.

      1. They are the ultimate “do what makes you happy” thing. Each of my kids has their own small tree they get to decorate with the ornaments they’ve been given over the years. With theirs and the two that Hubby and I have (we each had our own when we got together), we have a few. This was the first year that I really understood why some people opt to cut back on the amount of decorating they do. Once the kids aren’t here to help out with the big trees, I’m not certain how long I’ll do them both.
