Pause and Remember – 12/9/2016

On Friday, I pause and remember a single moment from the past week.

We celebrate St. Nicholas on December 6 with small gifts and treats.  The gift from my younger daughter was a real treat – hand-knit bunny PJs just like Ralphie’s in the movie, Christmas Story, right down to the “sappily staring” slippers.

I have an American Girl size doll that my daughter keeps dressed in imaginative costumes.

She looks perfect displayed along with my village-sized Ralphie’s house …

…and Higbee’s Department Store.  You can see Ralphie peering into the window, dreaming about his air rifle.

Happy decorating, everyone.

Pause and Remember – 6/15/2012

On Friday, I pause and remember a single moment from the past week – inspired by The Warden’s Log.

My daughters visited the Roycroft Museum and gift shop in East Aurora, NY, on vacation and this is what they brought back to me.  They definitely know what I like.

On Friday, I pause and remember a single, wordless moment from the past week – inspired by The Warden’s Log.

An old friend is back on the mantel

Last January when I was taking down Christmas decorations and putting up my old treasures, I dropped a Roseville Brownberry vase and shattered it beyond repair.  I was especially upset because my daughter had given it to me as a birthday gift 25 years ago.   I’ve been looking for a replacement since then and finally found one on eBay.  The original was in perfect condition, but this one has a small chip which made it affordable.  I love to look up at the mantel and see my old friend again.
