Old And Familiar

There's nothing fancy about
at our house, 

but it's always familiar. 

The same ornaments 
we've used 
for years,
bring joy in the
of ways.

They're time worn and loved, 
just like we are. 


  1. Well said!
    I was thinking of you a couple of nights ago when I decorated our Christmas tree and came to those beautiful ornaments you gave me last year in the ornament exchange.
    They really are so beautiful.
    Have a blessed week-end.
    Joy! Debbie

  2. I agree! I haven't bought a new ornament in... well, I can't remember. Your decorations are lovely...
    I bet you smile just looking at them and thinking about your days with your hubby, kids and loved ones :)

  3. Just the way I love my Christmas treasures..a bit tarnished and holding many memories!

  4. Our tree is very unthemed and looking a little Charlie Brown. Do you enjoy decorating more in your mobile home? I can only imagine how cozy it is and there is the key word - cozy. Please post some pictures of your Christmas coziness. Wishing you a wonderful, blessed time leading up to Christmas.

  5. Most of what I am using this year is from past Christmas's also. I love taking them all out each year and reliving the memories.

  6. I still have things from when I was a girl or things that belonged to my grandmother...I love sentimental

  7. I feel the same. I place most of my decorations in the same place year after year. When you find something that works, why fix it?! Your photos are lovely, Geneva. I hope you're enjoying the season!

  8. I've been collecting ornaments for years and most of them have special memories. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a joyous new year.

  9. Geneva, your ornaments look like the old vintage balls, they're wonderful. I hope you had a nice Christmas, and I wish you peace and lots of love in the new year. Haven't seen you in awhile. I was so delighted when I saw that you posted.

    love, ~Sheri

  10. Geneva-
