Tis a few.....

... days before Christmas and all through our house, none of us are sleeping (much) including Abbie and her mouse!

It's been fun unpacking and finding new places for Christmas treasures.

Little Christmas quilts ...the middle one is special ----it was quilted by my Mom 30 years ago. 
Collection of Santa's and Angels that are displayed in antique desk.


The stockings are hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that "St. Nickolas" soon will be here!
Special gift from my "Santa" (Gene) in 1986 created by Norma De Camp, Ashville, North Carolina.   

Wishing you and your family "Merry Christmas". May the good times and treasures of the present become the golden memories of tomorrow. 
Hugs, Carolyn
