Christmas-time to share

Here's my little elf that Dixie gave me the other day.
We got together and had a party with our elf-selves.
And now she sits on the shelf
all by herself.

Well not really all by herself...
On each side are pics of my
sweet baby Samuel (born 1992)
Every year I took a picture of him
in a Santa hat.
Here he is holding a little vintage snowman
from my childhood~~1950's
And a few more Christmas decorations I grew up with...
this tall felt-embellished story book
Night Before Christmas
and this standing velvet-suited Santa.
The candy book isn't vintage but
we girls (I'm a middle daughter)
got one every year full of
lifesavers.

Merry Christmas to all
and to all a
Good Night!

It will be good to have you back.
The shells are actually on the top of a ottoman. Isn't it beautiful?

okay... things look better here now! LOL!

I'm so happy that your elf sits there being kept company by "little Samuel".... a perfect match!

Hope you finished up that shopping! I've got 8 appointments in Seguin today, so won't get to go visit Beverly at all!


Talk to you soon!
Christmas Hugs! Dixie
