Mr and Mrs Gingerbread standing watch, just in case someone wants to open presents before Christmas day.~smile~
I really wanted a homespun Old fashion Christmas this year, All ornaments on this tree are hand made, some are almost as old as I am, because they were made by our children, while I was a very young, young, mother. ~grin~ And by grandchildren. I cherish each and everyone, and as the memories flowed so did the tears of joy from time well spent with loved ones.
Hand painted by one of our sons,
This one was painted by Mr P. he does great work, doesn't he?
The fabric ornaments my sister Mary, daughter Susan and I worked on, many many years ago. I won't say how long because it will give my age away. ~lol~
Granddaughter Abigale's art work.
Granddaughter katie painted these cuties, we call her our "sunshine", thus the smiling faces.
I was so blessed many years ago to sit with our children to make ornaments for our tree, and then later to have the extra blessing of spending quality time with the grandchildren to make other ornaments. To have these ornaments combined on this special tree, is one of the best presents ever.
If you can find the time,... no please make the time, and create memories with your little ones, both your children and grandchildren, these memories will last a lifetime.
This ornament was made by daughter Susan when she lived in Michigan, she made a set of eight, oh! how I do cherish them.
I put bubbling lights on the tree,they remind me of visiting my grandmother's house at Christmas she always had them on her tree. As a child I loved sitting and watching the lights bubble, and still do. ~smile~
Another one of my most cherished ornaments, it was made by our third son, when he was very young. I thought it deserved to be placed at the top of the tree.
This is where the sweet shop bakes all those goodies.
These Carolers were made by my mother many year ago, while my Dad was stationed in Alaska, I just adore it.
Wishing you much joy and peace this Christmas!
Please, help yourself to an apron, I could always use the help!
a few french horns, with a pearl garland.
Crochet ornaments and pearls make this a favorite one of mine.
