Merry Christmas!

I wanted to take the time to wish all of you, my blogging friends, a very blessed Christmas.  Even if you do not celebrate Christmas, I hope that this season will bring you joy and happiness.

For me, one of the best things about Christmas is bringing out the ornaments and decorations that have a special meaning.  My tree is loaded with ornaments from my childhood and when I was first married ...28 years ago!  Plus I have ornaments for all my dogs, ornaments from trips and vacations and handmade and hand painted ornaments from family and friends.  I call it a "memory tree" and it's ornaments are so precious to me.

The little mug pictured above was given to me by my Grandma in 1971. 
She had a set that she split up between me and my siblings.  Our names and the year were written on the bottom and when I moved out, this was in a box of "my" ornaments and decorations that went with me. 
I've loved this mug for 40 years so you can imagine how excited I was to see that this year Pottery Barn was selling a reproduction set!  Of course I ordered them and the matching cookie jar.  Merry Christmas to me!!
So enjoy this time with friends and family
and I will be back sharing creatively with you all soon!

Merry Christmas! Travel safe, and I'll see you tomorrow.

Oh, and not ALL of your siblings got a mug...only the ones born before 1971! LOL!
