Sharing a FEW Christmas Memories

Hi Friends!

I'd like to share a couple of very special Christmas goodies I
have that have deep sentimental meaning to them.

First...this darling quad of ANGELS that spell out NOEL.
These sweet lil guys were found in a drawer 10 years ago
when we were cleaning out my hubby's family home.

We lost my dear MIL in 1994 and 2 years later my hubby's
dad.  They lived a very simple life without a lot
of things.  So when I found these and was told
to keep them...I didn't ask twice!

So true story...2 years ago I was cleaning and purging,
BIG time...and last year when I went to find these
sweet angel..I COULD NOT find them anywhere.
I feared that in my haste I had put them in a box
to be donated..but I knew they meant more to me and
I just COULDNT have done that, right?

FOUND...this year when I brought out my Creche from my
momma, wrapped up in a bag these all fell out!
I SHREAKED as these were LONG lost treasures and they
were FOUND.

I quickly took them upstairs to my studio and glued them to this sweet box.
I fixed them good and now will NEVER loose them again! lol




This sweet ornament was gifted me too many
years ago that I cannot remember.  But it came from my
now 95 year old grams.

She was so very GREEN before that term was even coined!
It was an old greeting card that she re-used.  She glued toothpicks
and glitter to create a sweet and charming
treasured ornament!

But...most important...she wrote...

Lorena
From Grandpa and Grandma
This was from a card you sent us a couple of
years ago!

A treasure indeed!

Have a blessed week all!

I scrolled all the way down and read with emotion of your loving wish to have a Baby and then to see that you got your wish. What a Beautiful Story and what a Beautiful Girl~Miracles do happen, I'm so happy for you, we too had this kind of Story, my son and Daughter-in-Law, after a few losses, it was just not in the Cards and so it was not meant to be, which was heartbreaking~~ she went on to graduate from College and the day she graduated she discovered she was Pregnant~~Oh, my, she amost lost this baby many times, but she survived and she weighed a tiny barely 5 lbs~`she will have no more Babies, but this one is a Blessing and she will graduate from High School this Year~and I wanted a girl so bad, they named her after me!!

Blessings to you and your Family this Christmas and always.
