Celebrating the season with some of my family is always sweet. The ones far away are so much closer by phone and photos than was the case years ago.
Poppy has unders and is waiting for a dress.
Jack's treasured collections of stoneware and redware and pewter are on display as he placed them about this house. I have parted with only one of these, a piece of redware to a friend Jack would want to have it. Jackie has been gone six years now. In the comforting way of old age, I feel he was here with me just a short while ago.
White robed Santa from Bethany Lowe with a few Steiff friends added.
The little tree is from wmart , with just a few cotton orns I make like the star, and some pinecones and a few old balls with a string of old glass beads. Not much effort to put it up and not much to take it down and pack I am thinking.
A sweet Christmas day. e
