and now some history of day 5 of the 12 days of christmas…first off….5 Golden Rings.  i searched out etsy for gold rings and found these delightful ones…at $20 each plus $3 for shipping…so $115.00 for 5 Golden Rings.

“Catholics in England during the period 1558 to 1829, when Parliament finally emancipated Catholics in England, were prohibited from ANY practice of their faith by law – private OR public. It was a crime to BE a Catholic.” –www.byrum.org

Thus The 12 Days of Christmas was written as a memory aid to learning the Christian Faith.  The 5 Golden Rings represent the first Five Books of the Old Testament, the “Pentateuch”, which gives the history of man’s fall from grace.

So that’s all for day 5.

**remember today only with purchase of the from our Etsy shoppe you will receive the pattern FREE!  be sure to let me know in the “Note to Seller” if you want me to hold all your orders until the end of the 12 days.  your order will then ship on or around Jan. 9th.  Shipping will be figured and any extra charges will be refunded.

Join us tomorrow for the Day 6…

also…looking through our pictures i thought i’d post a couple pictures of our 4 dogs that make life OH SO MUCH better!  these are a couple years old…Kandii is a little more round and the boys are a little less puppy-like.  But Kandii is still awesome…Max is still snuggly and Brutus is still gangly.  and Lola-Bear is still silly.
