I am finally here again! It seems as if it has been forever.
Christmas has come and gone, and I still haven't shared photos of some special Yuletide items in our home. I'll share the items today, if you don't mind. At a later time I will share photos from the actual holiday celebrations.
Here's a very special Christmas ornament my dear friend Jenny gave me when our daughter was born back in 1983.
This ornament means "Merry Christmas" in Norwegian, and it was stitched by my friend Janet:
This was also stitched by Janet:
Another gorgeous one stitched by her:
Kathryn stitched these two ornaments. I love how they're simply finished in an embroidery hoop:

I bought this one at one of those 'at home' parties. I have no idea what the company's name was.
My brother and his wife brought us this one back from Russia:
This ornament was drawn with pencils by my friend Janet:
Some photos of the tree:
The beautiful nut ring my mom made us a few years ago:
Stockings hung on our antique armoire. We don't have a fireplace, so this works out fine:
Christmas with roses still in bloom:
Thanks for stopping by on this winter's evening.
