1515 Christmas

Today for Show off your Cottage Monday I am sharing pictures of my Grandparents house which is my 2nd home.

I have been blessed to be off of work for a week and made the drive to home. On Saturday night we had 24 family and friends for dinner. Last night was our PJ party we wore our pj's all day and unwrapped our gifts, ate left overs and watched Christmas movies as it snowed out. It has been wonderful to be home!

This is the 2nd year we have owned 1515. My cousin and I try to replicate the trees my Grandparents had in the 1940's, so we have a small Frazier fir, decked out with vintage ornaments, tinsel and a star on top.

Picture of the 1942 tree next to the 2010 tree, same spot 68 years later!

It's all so wonderful how you are remembering you Grandparent's traditions. I am without a computer. Another virus! A new one is in my immediate future! Hosting the tennis girl Christmas party tomorrow. Should be fun!
