Christmas Past AND 12 Days of Christmas Give Away!!
Hi All!! It is day FIVE of our 12 Days of Christmas Give Away! Each day I will give away a small prize (6x6 paper pack, or embellishment pack...etc.)to someone who has left a comment. That is all you have to do...leave a comment and your name goes in the drawing for a little goodie! Each day I will feature on my blog something that is a part of my Christmas. Just want to spread some Christmas cheer! On the 5th Day of Christmas I present to you...our old fashioned Christmas Past. This hearth represents some of our old Christmas pasts that will always be our Christmas future and Christmas present. Now you know I LOVE to create and craft and you would think that I would handcraft all our Christmas stockings...but NO...my children REFUSE to let me! They are sooooo ATTACHED to these old dollar store stockings that I purchased when money was lean and time was even leaner and I didn't have the means to create them back then. Any mention of replacing these stockings and I have an immediate uprising on my hands. Soooooo the old stockings it will be and I am happy for it! Memories are such a wonderful part of Christmas. The dolls are all dolls my girls received at Christmas time. The LOVED receiving a new doll every year, but they have no room for them and I don't either...but at Christmas these sweet little ladies can come out and be a part of the Christmas magic again. I've had the bears and Santas for years and they just help create the wonderful feel of an old fashioned Christmas. Hope your day is filled with memories of magical Christmas' past! HUGS, Cheryl

“Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he’s been robbed. The fact is that most putts don’t drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to just be people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. Life is like an old time rail journey…delays…sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling burst of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride.” ― Gordon B. Hinckley
