Pink Saturday on Sunday

Posting a little late because of sickness (so sorry for anyone who stopped by yesterday). This old ornament was bought by my grandmother and brings back so many memories of Christmas' pasts. My mom has about 6 left and they're really fragile. I found a tree for her to hang them on along with some other old ornaments she still has. She doesn't remember where her mother bought them but it had to be so long ago. (My grandmother passed away in 1963). 

I love these so much! To me, the memories from our past hold us all so dear to each other. Christmas was always so special in our house. With ten kids we really didn't buy much. My mom helped us make decorations, we held our Christmas plays (see post down), we pulled names and we had each other. Now we still gather at my mom's house, and our family has grown to over 50. We still sing Christmas carols, pull names and eat too much. The love and laughter are there as always. I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas and a great pink saturday!! Please visit Beverly and share some of the pink-my new blog to visit is Laura at 52 Flea. She has some wonderful Christmas photos and I love the vintage items and flea market finds!

Hi there, nice to meet you..Is our name Sue? Just brain is foggy so trying to figure that out!
Thank you for stopping by my blog on Saturday, and Pink Saturday on Sunday is just fine! Pink is Pink on any day..lots of ill folks, knock wood just shoulder surgery for my hubby on the 17th, no flue or any of that stuff, at least not yet.
I am curious as to your sewing..I sewed a bit as a kid, my mom was a pretty good seamstress. I guess I am trying to say what a blessing that skill is.
Well I hope you feel better and all sickness runs away from your home quickly..take care!

Loved all your Christmas posts...aren't we lucky to have old black and white photos?...they just have a crispness that old color pictures don't have. Thanks for visiting on Pink Saturday.
