My Favorite Things

Dear Friends,

Christmas is the season I love! Lights twinkling on houses, children playing in the snow, caroling with friends, a cup of hot chocolate and then there’s the smell of gingerbread.

Christmas is the Christchild in the manger, the angel on top of the tree and time to think about what it all means. Time for stories, the Christmas Carol and Ebenezer Scrooge. The joy of giving and creating Christmas magic.

It’s also a time for family and friends, old and new--and time for children, oh how I love the children! May the spirit of the holidays inspire us to reach out and help those around us, to make sure there is something sweet under every tree.

Magdalene Prinsloo-- A great-great-grandmother famous for her Christmas vinegar pudding. Known for her handiwork, she crocheted these lovely pieces which have been hidden away for at least fifty years. From now on she will have a place in the home and hearts of her family. Merry Christmas, Maggie!

Wishing you and yours a Memorable Season,

With memories in mind, Ruth and Rose
