Christmas was pretty darn nice this year...A slightly smaller gathering than usual at my parents home. Some
of the family is out of state, some out of country. Maybe next year we can all
come together again. But..be that as it was. It was wonderful being
with my parents, sister, Aunts and Uncle..cousins.. The Picture above is of
three things I recieved as gifts this year and I just had to share with you.
The Book is from my parents...(really my dad) who is 79 and my original
estate sale...garage sale...antique teacher. He took me and my sister with
him saleing...lol. We both learned very fast what we liked to c ollect. This
beautiful book published in 1958 is about African Sculpture. It just
happens to be a discard from the exact same Jr. High School my sister
and I attended. He did not even realize it when he found it at a sale.
The gold filled bracelet is from my parents also. Another garage sale
find over the summer (my parents have such easy daughters...and they
spoil us rotten often with their treasure finds) I don't know what the
stones are...but when I tried it on I just gasped. My dad got the hint...smile.
The beautiful intricate mother of pearl and sterling pin is from my
husband...I had pointed it out to him earlier in the year....That man
has great follow through. Anyway...The best part of the last two days
is the extra time spent with family...
