Day 343 - Gimme a little kiss, will ya, huh?

A modernized version of a kissing ball, I haven't found where to hang this little one yet. Back in the day they used to include mistletoe, but I haven't seen real mistletoe in years and years. I think it's toxic so I suppose it isn't politically correct to have around anymore. *sigh*

Wow Marianne, shows how little I know! I never knew mistletoe was a real plant! Mom always did holly and berries and hung it in the archway, so I always thought that's what it was! I learned something today, though it shows a little naivety on my part!! Love the red, it is pretty..

Ooh, that's pretty! I love red anyway, every day, but especially at Christmas. It really pops against the black, great job!

I've only seen real mistletoe since I've been married. It grows in a lot of the trees at my in-laws farm, and several years (when we were FIRST married!), my husband would shoot it down out of the trees for me. He hasn't done that in a while, but there's still some there. I saw some this past weekend. I think it is toxic though, you're right about that.
