Before I tell my story, I want you to know that the above raindeer was made by my daughter in kindergarden, many years ago. I would take a tree with handmade ornies from my children over any store bought ornies any day of the year. They are priceless and made with so much love.
This little paper tree with birdseed glued to it is over 25 years old. My son made this when he was in kindergarden. Sadly, the paper is falling apart. I think I may need to laminate this between plastic sheets to keep it. It, along with the raindeer, is my most precious ornie yet.
I remember waking one Christmas morning to find a pink wooden doll cradle under the tree. Inside was a baby doll the size of a real baby. The doll and cradle were store bought, but the pink satin pillow, cover, sheet and mattress where handmade and hand quilted by my grandmother. It was probably the best gift I ever received from Santa. Sadly, years later while I was in high school we had a house fire and I lost everything. But....I still have my memory and will never forget the love and care that went into a very special gift that year.
This is a beautiful stocking that I made and listed on my website someplace in thyme. It has romance and and an image of a sweet child with a basket of pink roses.
I hope all of you enjoy your day and I look forward to visiting you and sharing your special memories of Christmas past. Happy Pink Saturday!!
