A Nostalgic Look at Christmas' Past

December 15, 2011
As you get to know me better from following my blog, you will find out that I not only enjoy decorating, but I love flower gardening, antiquing, family history and nostalgia.  Here is a look at some of MY past Christmas' trees, decorating, etc...
Sometimes the holiday decorating money was scarce.
Here I am in 1960 in front of my Grandma's tree crocheting. Lots of tinsel on the tree and tv trays in the corner.  For sure the 1960's.

Also the 1960's with my parent's aluminum Christmas tree and small netting tree on the round wrought iron plant stand.  It may have been a pink netting tree!

Early 1980's, early marriage, second hand and hand me down decorations on my Grandma's old artificial tree.

The "cutsey" country years. My cute daughter and my mostly craft sale and homemade ornaments.

Didn't we all do it?  The gingerbread men, the birdhouses?

The snowmen.
Hey Mom, I ran out of Christmas decorating money and wrapped the pictures on the walls!

What Steve, you bought a trunk full of Bing and Grondahl Christmas plates at an auction?  It's fun to look back!

Thanks for reading my blog, Carlene
