A Book Review!!!

I was asked by Wally White if I would review his book and I said “yes!”  Well maybe in a more subdued way.  Anyway, he sent me a copy in the mail and I was anxious to read it because a book with the title “Christmas Travelers” has got to be good, right? Well, I read it in about 3 days (woulda been quicker but because of family I was only able to read it a little at a time).  He lays out the background of the people in the book at first which I know is important but I was wanting to get to the part when everybody meets, or skip to that part but even still I stayed for the first part because you really do get to know the characters and I was intrigued at how they meet.  The whole time I am reading it I kept thinking what a wonderful Christmas movie this would make!  I could relate very well with Holly, who leaves her family in Arkansas to move to Phoenix with her husband because of work ( I moved from Washington state to Ohio when I married my husband, leaving my friends and family) .  “Christmas Travelers” is a wonderful Christmas story with a wonderful message!  I leave you with an excerpt from the story, “...And the great thing about memories is we can share them.  And in doing so, we get to relive them.”

I am having a Yard Sale!

I am having a yard sale next week.  It is such a tiring thing to do but I must.  I will have older books and vintage sheet music and BUNCHES OF VINTAGE CHRISTMAS ITEMS!!  I know I may not sell very much of it but I am giving it a shot.  I am in the Dayton, Ohio area so if any of you are in the area shoot me an E-Mail and I will give you the info.

On the way back from vacation in Washington state we stayed in Billings the first night.  I was very pleased to hear Christmas music on the radio!  I couldn't be happier!  So after getting home, I checked to see where it is on the internet and was sad to see it was temporary.  Oh well, was fun while it lasted.  They called themselves 97.1 Santa FM, Flagship of the Northpole (something like that, anyway), so I thought they would be around a while.  I love Christmas music any time of year!

Vintage Wrapping Paper

Here is a pic of vintage wrapping paper we got at an auction a few years ago.  They need to make more like this, now, I think.

306 Days Until Christmas!

Here are a few of my vintage ornaments.  I am thinking about selling a bunch of my vintage ornaments due to lack of storage space and we tend to only use about 10% (my husband tells me) of what we have.  What I have is similar to what I am sharing here.

310 Days Until Christmas!

I have not been keeping up with my blog.  I apologize for that.  Thought I would share a Santa tin I bought at the Goodwill.  It says made in England on the bottom.
