Christmas Decor!

In the last post I talked about my rubber Santa and thought I had it in those pictures. As you can see I am not good at this picture taking and posting them. So here is my sweet santa..isnt he so cute. I can still see the little house and room that I was in when I got him. Maybe I was 8 yrs old..? I keep thinking maybe I should rub him with oil or something to perserve him..I dont know if you noticed the santa candle in the pictures from the other post. I grew up with him. He was my mothers and he is probably at least 50yrs old. Also the green plastic tree with xmas balls on it was my mothers also...I love it. So if you have a questions about the items that I have showed please ask..I love to get comments..Happy New Year!!!sally

My Christmas Decor!!

Finally I have taken pictures of my xmas decor.I wanted to do this all month and just didnt find the time.If I was more experienced at working the electronic stuff I would probably have posted these pictures before xmas. I loaded them all at once. I was wanting to say something about each I will tell you a little of what I remember of what I took pictures of. As you can see I LOVE bottle brush trees.I once at a yard sale bought a whole box of bottle brushes...and Ive added more through the years. How do you like the xmas balls on the candle holders..well you've seen this before but it was a first for me. One of them is my xmas ball that I painted a rose on. If you notice on the china closet the stocking I made. It is out of a small feed sack.. Now the plastic santa with the sleigh was a estate sale find last month.I hate to tell you that I bought it for 50 cents..I know it was a steal.I love it. The mantle pic didnt turn out to well. The candles look crooked which they dont look that way in person. Now the Old rubber Santa was mine as a child. I cant believe he is still not cracked and disintegrated..but he is caving in on his back side. So now its almost time to take it all down. My tradition like my mothers is not taking down the xmas tree till after New Years. The old tradition which my mother always grew up with the tree didnt come down till I think January 7th. I have a traditional xmas tree..My hubby and I both want it to look somewhat like our trees we grew up know those big colored lights and all the different ornament that we've collected through the years..and oh I have to have tinsel..come back to see what other pictures I have of my xmas decor.Oh I do so love to get comments..hint hint!!Hope you all had a good xmas...sally

So here we are in 1971 or 72 ? Can't remember exactly but what do you think? Young is the word...wished I knew what was in those presents..the Raggedy Andy doll my sister made for my son...and now Hattie is playing with it. Check out the my shag hairdo..and my hubbys facial So we have been married along time and he has been a very good husband and father. He was in Viet Nam and when I married him I had no idea anything what it was like to be in a War...I was so naive and ignorant of alot of things. He is my best friend and I dont know what I would do without him. Well enough said...hope you all have a wonderful Christmas..sally
Where has the time gone? Sorry I havent posted for awhile. Our computor got a huge virus so it was down for awhile and plus as you know I dont have all the time in the world to post. So here is Hattie with Santa. This is her first time to meet him..hasnt she grown? She looks like a little grown up girl in this picture but she is only 19 months. She is so much fun.
I got a laptop computor and so this post I am trying out to see how easy it was to pick up pictures...and it is sooooo easy and cant tell you why it was hard with our old computor that got a virus..but I think now I will maybe post you all my xmas decor...So until next time...sally
