Christmastime Memories

The memories that are made at Christmas 
 can last a lifetime 
I think that's why Buzz and I enjoy these old chippy glass ornaments ... Seeing them on our tree is conjuring up so many memories of the simple Christmastimes we had when we were both growing up.   These ornaments were a thrift store find a few years back - their faded colors, chippy paint and even hints of sprayed on snowflakes are what make them so beautiful to us.  

Chippy Glass Ornaments
Old Toys
and
Our Kids Handmade Ornaments
(from years ago)
 are making our home feel so Festive 


During the Christmas season,
I hope that your own times of excitement and sharing
and fellowship will leave you with a special gift -
Memories that will last a lifetime.

When I was going through my ornaments yesterday,
I found an old slinky.
I think I have to make this... ":o)

  2. I love those ornaments, too. They remind me of hanging Shiny Bright ornaments on my mother's and grandmother's trees in a much simpler time.

    What a cute birdfeeder idea!

  6. I love that old slinky idea. I just got done putting all my son's handmade ornaments on our living room tree. That's my favorite part of the holiday season.
