Hello friends! We are just back from Amelia Island and, between unpacking and loading the washing machine, I thought I'd share a bit of Christmas.
You might recognize Allegiance in the pic above. Allegiance is one of my dolls that I decided to keep and she has now become my "alter ego". She recently found a new friend...Fiona Fox...an early, well loved Steiff fox. Allegiance took a liking to Fiona immediately.
Allegiance is wearing a very early red calico dress. She thinks red is her color. I agree.
A couple of my red and green samplers.
Can you see the shoes? They are a wonderful green color and sport milk glass buttons.
I found this sweet, white Santa this past summer.
He has such a kind expression.
A collection of Norma Schneeman's ornaments nestled in baskets in a very large wooden bowl
...a sweet man in the moon
An antique Santa ornament sits atop early holly gift boxes.
Lots of red and green popping up at Mugwump Woolies!
I hope to be back with more bits of Christmas later this week.
Hope you are all are staying well and enjoying the spirit of the season.
While in Amelia Island last week, we got into the spirit during our first Christmas party of the year...a festive and fun occasion with our Florida Bar Board of Governors family. Annie spent some time with all of her favorite people at the party.
The week before we left we made personalized mugs for her many friends. We bought white mugs, Annie decorated them with smiley faces and dots in gold, then we baked the mugs so that the oil based paint stays on after washing.
Annie bought a Santa hat for her special friend Mr. Gene...the gentleman who gave Annie the President's Award this past summer. The hat reads, "I 'VE BEEN GOOD THIS YEAR". The perfect sentiment for this special friend. He's the best in Annie's book!
You can see Annie's mug in this pic...Mom forgot to take pics of the nine mugs all together.
Annie also spent some time with Mr. Gene's lovely wife, Sheila. They had tea in the lobby at the Ritz and read Annie's favorite Christmas books together. Mom enjoyed a couple hours of down time. (Thank you, my dear friend!)
It is so nice to have friends that enjoy spending time with our girl, and go out of their way to show her how much she is loved.
Have a wonderful week!
Enjoy the day,
