Holiday decor: lasting memories

This week on Romance Writers Weekly, we ask, “How do you decorate for the holidays? Do you have a theme?” I also ask them to show a picture of their favorite decoration and share the history.

Growing up, my Dad’s Lionell train was always around the base of the tree.

Although I don’t have my father’s train, I revere the vintage Shiny Bright ornaments handed down from my mother. They seem to transcend time.

My only theme is on the fireplace mantle. The ceramic Santas my mother-in-law painted are the main attraction in our den. Each holiday season, I am transported to yesteryear and reminder of a simpler life. Hopefully my son will feel the same nostalgia when these decorations are handed down to him. Holiday Blessing to all and Merry Christmas!

Now on to Brenda Margriet. She has a new release you should check out, Crossroads Corner! If you missed Jenna Da Sie on the hop, please stop back by.

My Christmas GIF Style

This week on Romance Writers Weekly, CL Marcolini wants us to share a holiday meme or GIF that illustrates our frame of mind this time of year.  Hope you have already visited with A.S. Fenichel.
I had fun with this and wanted to share my stages of Christmas attitudes…
I begin with me shopping.

Me wrapping gifts…

Me and the turkey…

And lastly, how I feel by Christmas Day!

Honestly, it’s not all that bad but I have had these moments over the years.  Hope you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Now let’s get a visual of how Brenda Margriet feels this time of year!
