{p,h,f,r} Christmas Decorations

{pretty, happy, funny, real}

~Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life~

Every Thursday with Like Mother, Like Daughter

This week, I'd like to share some of my favorite Christmas decorations with you.  


My talented daughter drew this in chalk pastels a few years ago.  


The ceramic tree and nativity make me think of happy days gone by as they were made by my husband's and my grandmothers.  They are a reminder of their love for all things Christmas and of us.  They both are gone now to their Creator and we miss them mightily this time of the year.  These pieces are treasures.  


I find this little mouse sitting next to Dorothy to be quite funny.  Also, take a close look at the nativity, there seems to be a Lego guy added.  Probably an attempt at being funny.  The others look concerned, don't they?  


The reality is, I have so many decorations that have sentimental meaning that I cannot share just a few! 

Thank you for stopping by.  Happy week before Christmas!! 


  1. Wow, that pastel drawing is beautiful!
    And I love the lego! A nice reminder that children live there! ;)

  2. Stopping by from LMLD. The porcelain nativity is truly an heirloom!

  3. I'd say the camels look positively affronted! And your mouse is so fun! Lovely decorations everywhere.

  4. Happy Week Before Christmas to you, too! We're all ready here, and the children can't wait!

  5. Oh the ceramic tree! My mom has one that my Nana made her! Beautiful post!
