What are Old World ornaments? Is this the name of the brand?
Yes, Old World Christmas is the brand. I get a lot of mine from Callisters Christmas online. (I think they are in Wisconsin). There are at least 2 shops here in Ohio that sell them but they didn’t get any of the “covid” themed ornaments. I just gave my cousin a bunny one for her birthday for her Easter tree but she is keeping it out all year. I like them better then hallmark but that’s just me.

Got a few things yesterday. There was a new brand of drink out that offers a soda and lime so got a 4 pack of those for Mum. They sound very refreshing for Summer.

DD just had me order ornaments for her. Dogs, a cat two golf one, a clog (she said it reminded her of me since I use to always wear clogs) and the covid vaccine Santa.

Had a quick look at the ornaments. Some of them are lovely.

My weekly trip to the supermarket yielded some items for the gift closet, mainly for stocking fillers.
Got DFSIL 3 packages of stock cubes for in his cooking basket. Found DD some underpants that will go with the socks I got a few months back. Got DS disinfectant to go in his cleaning bag. Little things but they all add up.

Waiting for a parcel to arrived. Bought a few lavender items to make a gift for Mum, ordered new sweat pants for DH and I got 4 DVD's for DS and DB. they will go into the gift closet for either birthdays in June or July or for stocking fillers for Christmas.

Am keen to go to the mall at some stage and just wander the shops and have a look.

Ornaments and movies arrived and are tucked away. Have a list of movies to order from Turner Classic Movies in May for my husband and our friend. Got a few things ( body wash etc) at the grocery store too. Have a few gifts I’m making that are “in process”.

We picked up a set of "Rugrats" PJ's for DH's cousin for Christmas. She was born during his senior year in HS and he always called her rugrat. I want to find a rugrat coffee mug too and see what other Rugrat themed items I can find.

Today we visited a little KMart called K HUB, never seen one before. I picked up a beautiful cream coloured mixing bowl for Mum. It has a pouring spout on it so quite useful. I will fill it with some choc chips and a few other baking supplies and make a gift out of it. Mum bought me a cute dress that will be great for Summer, stripes in a rust colour and white. We went to a bargain store and got a few things from there.
So Mum is looking OK for gifts at this stage. Need to ask DD and DFSIL what they might like and start looking
