christmas treasures and volunteering..

thought id share some of my past finds...these pictures are from a bit ago. i usually keep have these in their boxes in a basket and such just to look at, the boxes are so pretty too. maybe if i start earlier next year i will find the perfect place for them.

i had stopped over at mom/dads and dad said mom was down at the library, volunteering through the hospital for the angel tree. she was getting ready to leave when i popped in for a photo!
auntie Norma moms sister) came to check in on her too. auntie Norma has been volunteering at the hospital gift shop every friday for years..

just about done decorating!! just some tweaking altho i probably will do that til Christmas...
enjoy your day my blogging friends!!


  1. Those Noel children are adorable and I love the place card holders too. You have some of the cutest Christmas decorations.

  2. Your Christmas collections are cute. You do take great care with your little Christmas collection.

    I think that volunteering keeps your mom and auntie young. They look so happy.

    We have our first major snow storm of the season and it's supposed to turn to freezing rain this afternoon. Schools were cancelled today.
    Have a great week.
