Christmas, Snow Pictures And Some Finds

It's hard to believe that tomorrow night is Christmas Eve.  My family has its Christmas gathering on Christmas Eve and this year my cousin and his fiancé are hosting the dinner. This past Friday we had snow falling, giving us more of a Christmas feel.

We went for a drive on Friday and I got these snow pictures down the road from our place.

This is an old schoolhouse down the road from our place which is a heritage building which we've booked for our wedding and reception.

This one Pyrex bowl is my only Christmas pattern piece in my collection.  We don't find many Christmas pattern pieces in our travels. This is called the Golden Leaf pattern.

This shelf in my Hoosier has some vintage family ornaments and some Coca - Cola ornaments from my dads collection.

I had to take one shelf of paperweights out of my cabinet.  This is a small group of them.

The fiancé likes to fish so when I saw these fish napkins I brought them home washed and ironed them and wrapped two of his gifts in them.

This picture of my mother would have been taken in the early 1950's.

I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas and the happiest New Year.
Thanks for visiting.
