My darling daughter gave me this mug with my favorite cocoa inside. The mug was in a gift bag with a treebus on it. Let's tear into the bag art.

Will trade brief for llama for what? Llamas don't wear underwear.

Standard.

Got tired of people hitting my bumper so I added the deluxe protection.

In it's original state a couple years after I bought it from Arthur Treacher's Fish & Chips: https://www.thesamba.com/vw/gallery/pix/1397067.jpg
They painted over the logos before they let me take it. I need to finish painting or else rub it back off.

Sheesh, didn't anybody get bus-esque presents?

Double cab, 1:24 scale.

And this ~ 10 inch square, thin gauge sheet metal jet cut out of a bus. Not sure how to display it or if I will paint it. I might go for an out door mount and let it rust. That could be a cool look.

Got these for Christmas from my wife:

The front side:

This is a fused glass ornament individually created by artist Kimberly Straub and sold on artisan site artfulhome.com Obvious flaws: it's lowered, wrong hubcaps, only three louver air intakes, reverse slash end bumper blades and I could go on and on! I love the tree on the roof (yep, wrong direction too!) Very cool anyway, so it will be hung up on our Christmas tree with many others!

The back side:

Also my wife bought these from another artist who hand makes these tiny (bumper to bumper 1 1/2" long) Beetles out of aluminum cans that she found out in New Mexico at an artist show...

And finally after giving her a few used ones to look at, I asked if my metal smith jewelry-making wife could try her hand and make me a few brass crimps for the curtain bungee cords for a SO-42 Campmobile. This is what she did:

Perhaps the best though was a Christmas letter and photos that arrived today from the Wisconsin camper/fisherman/backwoodsman John Lago! He and his infamous "Bondo Condo" are alive and running well in the way-northern backwoods of Wisconsin!

Merry Christmas everyone!

Just don’t put it in the microwave. I got the same one for Xmas and it cracked the first time I reheated my coffee, now a workbench pencil holder.

Orange juice doesn't pop out of the mold very well but fun to eat.

Wife's sister gave this pillow cover. Don't know the artist or if there's a cat version. Actually I waited to post all these pictures till the Westminster Dog Show was over yesterday (right? winkey).
ED
13
is printed on the pillow so it might be the maker or the artist. The bus looks to be a '63 23 Window but has push buttons so...mebbie phake.

Fwiw I saw this while waiting at the doctor office and figured it might set the rules straight. I think it was Sunset or Westways magazine.

Saw these at a local department store. I hope no one ever gets me one. To me it is actualized barf.

It is solar charged if that's any consolation.
