My Favorite Tree in the House & Merry Christmas!

My favorite tree in the house...
For many years now, I have set up this sweet tree in honor of my Mother Gloria Mae and Mother~in~law LaVerne. It reminds me of Christmases past and the loveliness they stood for.
Both of my Grandmother's are remembered also.
The picture above is of my Grammie Alberta Maxine, a model at age 16 and the white crocheted bell & snowflake were made by my Grandma Sadie Lee!

Thank you for coming by for a visit! I have enjoyed another year of blogging with you!
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year!

Hi Maryjane,

Your Christmas tree is so lovely and I really enjoyed learning a little bit about your grandmothers :) :) So sweet!!! OH, I did see this one ornament that had a painted rose on it. Also lovely :) :)

Just a random note, I finally made that laundry powder recipe you have on your site. I had to order pink ZOTE soap from Lehman's since I can't purchase it anywhere here in town. So I did post a link to that article on your blog...on my blog :) :) I can't wait to see how this works...and you're right..that soap is HUGE!!!

I want to wish you and your family a very Happy Christmas and a Happy New Year. Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)
