Crafty Secrets Creating with Retro Christmas CD to make a fun little tag for them.
We met in the town that Karen lives in, about 30 minutes from here and took in lunch and a little shopping first. Julie bought this cute "Grandma" towel for my sis. My sis is a grandma for the first time this Christmas!
I had a number of different sizes of canvases, so everyone chose what worked best for them. We were so lucky that Julies daughter Michelle was able to join us. She and her husband live in New York and are just back for the Holidays. It was so fun having her there! If you are a follower, You might remember her wedding over the Summer.
Okay, on to the next thing I wanted to share. Every Holiday I share some photos of the house decorated. I said I was going to share some, and it's crazy but I've hardly taken any. I'll share a few I have. I might have shared the one below already, but it's shows the living room the best. ( note: Lily thinks she is the Queen)
I found this little vintage Police car ( since one son is a police officer), but I needed a fire truck since the other son is a volunteer Firefighter EMS. I ordered one from ETSY and it just arrived. I tied a little Christmas tree on the top of it. I just haven't gotten a photo of it yet :)
I thought I'd show you some of my favorite vintage figurines. These two little angels carrying the tree is one of my very favorites!
Neely gave me these little vintage sweeties last year. They are name place card holders. Each one is so sweet and unique. They still come in the original box.
Here sweet little face ... oh my.
This little caroler is special because he was a keepsake from my brother in laws mother who has passed away. ( if you turn him around , he has a sling shot in is back pocket :)
This also.. either sits in a prominent place or hangs on the tree. It has for the last 29 years. 29 years ago today my Dad went to heaven. I think of him so often and still miss him so much. That's how it is with parents I guess. You just always miss them, especially during the holidays. Makes my eyes teary when I think about it. But I know mom is with him now. I always picture them dancing . They loved to dance.
How blessed I was to have such amazing parents.
I'm hoping you have a wonderful week ahead and a Christmas that is everything you want to be.
Merry Christmas to you all!
