Ornament Stories

December 21, 2010

I have been busy in the kitchen making Christmas cookies, fudge and a hanging display album that will be available in January at The Scrappy Gourmet called "The Stories They Would Tell". This album is a place to tell those stories of your beloved Christmas Ornaments and Decorations made by those precious hands or handed down from other generations. So this year, if you haven't already, take pictures of those special ornaments and write those stories down so you'll be ready to create this keepsake album filled with warm memories when January rolls around.

Wishing you a beautiful day, dear friends.

That looks so pretty Sheila... I would love one to keep track of all my vintage ornaments and decorations in... Merry Christmas to you!... xoxo Julie Marie

I love reading your blog Sheila. You always have such wonderful things to share. Happy Holidays to you and yours.

LOVE that idea! Especially since I just sent my college boy's ornaments to him- collected since he was a baby. I'm going through withdrawals AGAIN now that they AND his embroidered stocking are out of my hands.

Merry Mommy Christmas,

:)

Sheila,
That is a beautiful idea. Our tree is full of ornaments from the beginning of out wedding on. Actually there is one funny skier that I gave to Jud when we were dating. I love pulling them our every year and remembering their stories!
Have a blessed Christmas!

Oh! I made an ornament album a couple of years ago, and now add the year's special ornaments each year. It's nice to know I'm not the only one who gets so sentimental about those special ornaments!

What a wonderful idea!! So many of my ornaments have meaning, and I might be the only one in the family that knows the stories.

Have a wonderful holiday, Sheila!!
