Hi everybody!  Polly 69 and Matt [aka Mattee] met for the first time today, and boy, did we have FUN!  We met at the Pennsylvania Christmas and Gift Show, and Matt decided to take Polly 69 around to view the many vendors. Matt managed to take a few fun pictures along the way…    

First stop:  Flameless Candles.  Pretty, and frog-safe.   

Polly 'n candles

Pretty Glass

On to Justina’s Sweets ‘n Treats.  (There was no [gulp!] Frog Soup… we checked! )   

Reindeer Soup??

Then on to German Roasted Nuts, with Polly nestled among some yummy German Roasted Hazelnuts.
“German Roasted” refers to the recipe. According to the company website, the recipe is a blend of sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla that is heated in a copper kettle. 

German Roasted Hazelnuts!

mmmm... German Roasted Hazelnuts

Cool knit hats that resemble animals.  Polly found her doppelganger right away!

Wait!  Her whaaaat?

Dop·pel·gäng·er:  [noun] is a german word that means “alter ego”

 Taking a break on one of Eagle’s Nest Outfitters way cool hammocks [Mattee’s leg in the pic…] Too bad Matt doesn’t have outdoor space to hang one!

ahhh! Hammock Time!

  What an awesome day!

By the way, the “famous landmarks” designation has to do with the location of the show:  the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex.  We’re going to do a post on that when it’s a little warmer outside!

Stay tuned for Polly and Mattee’s adventures in Fort Lauderdale, Florida!

  1. Cute post! Thanks for buying a Polly yesterday! I can’t wait to read all of your future posts.

  2. Thanks for the tour of the exhibits! I want a hammock–preferably in green.

  3. I’ve been keeping up with things as best I can. It looks like Polly sales are doing pretty well. I love seeing the sites and reading about the adventures of all of the Polly frogs. I can’t wait to read about how warm it is in Florida. That should help some of us northerners get through another winter!

  4. Nice vocabulary, Polly #69!

  5. It’s a good thing that they didn’t have frog soup! You would have passed out from shock!

  6. It was great meeting you at the show. I can’t wait to see more of your Polly adventures!
