Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas to all of you!
Although in 2016 it seems more of my blogging friends have stopped posting and are on Facebook or Instagram. Many of you I miss hearing about what your up to and how your family is.

1960
Roots Department Store Terre Haute Indiana, my brother and I and one of my all time favorite pictures.

Here are some pictures around the house

My Grandma's spoon rack, filled with family spoons and holiday spoons.
I added some French postcards I got in Paris years ago.
Many years ago, getting a silver spoon for Christmas was common.

This one setting on my new found vintage tablecloth, is my GGGrandmothers.
It says Margaret 1908 Xmas.

blessed to have these family pieces

These beautiful little Christmas books belonged to my Grandparents

my Grandmothers little Carolers

Can you see the Carolers on the Mantle in 1960. And our picture with Santa too,



the elf on the left is Grandma's and I found the other at a estate sale.

Jasper is loving laying under the tree

had a little luncheon for my neighbors



cookies all done

oh no how did Greta get icing on her?

hope your Christmas is as exciting for you as mine was in 1960!
MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

Ann, I love seeing your pictures from your childhood. I also truly enjoy seeing your family home. It takes us older ones back in time...to see the things you have saved and collected. I think there must have always been a lot of love in that house. Blessings to you and yours for a Merry Christmas. xoxo, Susie

So cute Ann! I love seeing all your Christmas photos! Amazing you found that matching elf. Your china peeking in the china cabinet is so pretty, as is your Christmas china. Pretty decor everywhere, but loving your childhood photos the best!

Happy New Year. I am here, Ann, just slow to get around to visit everyone. I have noticed my visits have dropped, too. It was a busy couple of weeks. Now we can get back to normal. I always enjoy your old photos, great memories.
