Merry Christmas to everyone! This beautiful postcard is from Germany, and it translates to “Blessed Christmas”! That is what I wish each and every one of you, as well as a happy, healthy and prosperous 2015!
I thought I would share a couple of pictures from my past; I am thinking this is probably 1956, at my maternal grandmother’s house; I think I was about two years old. She was a remarkable woman, very crafty and a talented homemaker, although she was pretty strict. I am sad that I didn’t get to know the crafty side of her until I was in my late teens and she passed away when I was 21. I am sure we would have had lots of crafting fun! Anyway, the first picture is not so great of ME (I have my eyes closed!), but I wanted you to look at the tree; my grandmother had my grandfather cut down an entire cherry tree and put it up in the “parlor” where she wrapped each & every branch with cotton, decorated it with ornaments, then set up a whole winter scene beneath it. I still have all those figurines, too! This was in addition to the regular tree in the living room! AND she made dozens and dozens of Christmas cookies and all sorts of other goodies!
Thanks for indulging me a wee bit! Merry Christmas!
