What's Wrong...

with this picture?
Something is.
It's not like a
"normal" year!

Really?
You don't see it?

OK, I'll tell you.
It's the first Christmas season
I can remember in a long time
that my table isn't completely
covered in catalogs!

ROTFL!

Jill you are too funny. I have never seen a post like this one. I rarely receive a catalog, I guess they get tired of sending them and me not ordering from them. Magazines I was subscribed to about 9 of them, but those I stopped paying for also.
Have fun going through them all. Some really do have some nice projects in them.

Yeah -- but it's early yet. :)

Jill from Killeny Glen said...

I was thinking that what you have is A LOT!!! Maybe companies are cutting back on mailings huh??

I DO like to look through many of them!

missing moments said...

I know! You can always tell it's the holidays...catalogs out of the kazoo! But they are less probably due to internet shoppers like me!

Hi Jill... I would be most happy to send you some of mine!... honestly, I wish they would stop sending them... I have even called many and asked them to stop, yet they just keep on a comin'... I always recycle though, after I remove my name, of course!... xoxo Julie Marie

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

they could be spread out more to cover more space... are you sure that isn't the case? that's a lot of mags... seriously, a lot! LoL! =)

Marissa @Life On Our Side Of The Mountain said...

haha! I love to get the Plow & Hearth catalogs!
:)

BettyJean @ Shabby Tea Party said...

Oh ya, I always think "Hmm, I haven't got this for awhile".... then I remember... "it's the beginning of the Christmas Catalog Onslaught" LOL I really do enjoy looking through some of them, even pick out gifts that would be appropriate for family members... Rarely to Never actually order though. Maybe I'll have to start using them to make folder paper Christmas ornaments, they'd be nice and colorful! Warm Hugs,

Furry Bottoms said...

hahah! for us, it's the ottoman. Just covered in catalogs and magazines that slides this and that way whenever the dogs jump on it. It can get pretty messy!

TexWisGirl said...

ha ha! it's because a few (hundred) got delivered to me instead!

Rose said...

We aren't getting as many either...actually only about 4-6 so far...and most of them are to my husband..

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

My table isn't covered in them, but they are stacked up--I have to admit to secretly liking the catalogs and looking at them and wishing...I guess it takes the place of the Sears Catalog from when I was growing up! :-)

Donna said...

Are the companies going out of business? It's getting harder and harder for them to make money...sigh.
But that's a Lot!
Enjoy the day!

EG Wow said...

Still looks like a lot of catalogs to me! :))

Dianna said...

I seem to have gotten a lot of catalogs this year!
Oh - and I love The Country House! I've been to their retail location several times. It's unbelievable!

Jackie said...

I love Christmas magazines, you have many more than I do...I'm jealous

Donna said...

Wow, you're right ~ we haven't been getting as many either. Some coupon flyers here and there, but none of those $10 off $10 this year! Now it's $10 off $30 or more! he he he! Personally, I love it, means I only need to run my recycle out every other week, instead of weekly!

Blessings,
Donna

Sharon said...

With my son gone, my junk mail has been cut by more than half! I don't buy, but I like to look...

Chatty Crone said...

Paula said...

Come to think of it I haven't recieved as many catalogs as usual but I'm kind of glad since I don't order much and they make the recycle bin heavy.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

I recycle mine, unless Pierce wants to make a collage. He sure loves making collages!

Lynne said...

I could build end tables with catalogs . . . I wonder if the recycler has placed some orders?
