Christmas Around the House

Four little houses all in row ~ are very special to me because they were made by Mr D's sister, in 1983, for our children. 

1983, long ago and far away !

We have a family of Christmas Mice that live on our bar every year.

Ho ~ Ho ~ Ho

This little nativity holds a special place in my heart.  It is the first nativity that Mr D and I purchased after we married almost 54 years ago.  I've had several nativities over the years, but this one remains my favorite.

Today I'm linking with Deb @ Breathing in Grace

Until Next Time

  1. Oh Mary, I love all you Christmas decorations and the stories that go with each of them! That is really why we decorate, isn't it! The memories and feelings of love and cheer!

  2. I love all the special little treasures that you've shared. Isn't it fun to bring out the favorite things and enjoy the memories they envoke? I love this time of year! Thank you for being a part of my Christmas celebration!

  3. They bring back lovely memories, I'm sure.

  4. PS, I have 'stolen' your lovely background and used it for my blog, hope you don't mind?

    1. Of course I don't mind!! I loved it the minute I saw it!

  5. Very nice decorations. Merry Christmas.

  6. So many are sharing some of their decorations today and telling about the precious memories that go along with them. I LOVE that! HOPEfully, I can get some pics of a few of my things this week and share for next week's FFF. I'm not sure where the time gets to these days. Seems EVERY day holds something new that HAS to be done....sigh!!! At least I can breathe now and have quit sounding like I'm coughing up a lung...okay, TMI!!! The smoke has cleared since the fires are out and that caused me a huge lack of motivation last HOPEfully this week, I can get back on track....good Lord willing! Thank you, my precious FRIEND, for being so faithful to link up with me every Friday. You mean so much to me, Ms. very much!! Love you....Deb

  7. I love looking at your page. It is always a delight to see what you have posted. Your nativity is precious!
