Another Bright Smile Just For You....


I'm letting a rosy-cheeked friend of mine show you his cute smile today. It's super cold outside, (hovering near zero this morning!) thus the red, red cheeks. He seems to be saying, "CHEER UP! Winter doesn't really last forever, it just seems like it!"
I've had this little "relish" container for at least twenty years, and of course, was vintage at the time I got him.
He's always held spare buttons that come on my new blouses. Then I always know where to find them.
Although he's meant for relish, and is always licking his lips in anticipation, I've never used him for the table. Strangely, he seems to consistently smile anyway even though he's not allowed to be doing his proper job.
He reminds me of a Howdy Doody doll, that's why I picked him up. And my oldest son, who is very much creeped out by clowns has never said this little guy bothers him at all, in spite of the fact that he rather resembles a clown.
So Mr. Relish face says HAVE A GREAT DAY!

I love him and think holding buttons is a really important job!

He also always held the eyeglass kit -- weird buttons that went to nothing and pins and hmm... weird metal pieces that went to nothing.... : ) ha ha ha

I was watching the news last night and it occurred to me that this little fella resembles Rod Blagojevich....!!
