Christmas Colors for Colorful Friday

Here goes on what I found for Christmas Colours. My favorite quilts. Miss December, a Quilting With Roxanne Sampler & a little quilt with Hoffman fabrics with fun thread for the quilting.

A very special gift from Great Grandma. A real fur hat & hand warmer. A favorite from Mom. Whipped paraffin wax Christmas tree. My snowman collection.
I learned to smock around in the early 80's from Ester Oliver. She was from Wales & a real gem! Sewing themed ornaments. My favorite holiday family picture circa 1961. I think my Grandma Vivian made us the matching outfits. That's me on the left in case you couldn't tell.Not color, but another favorite picture of Christmas. 1957. How on earth did they get my dress to look so perfect? I almost forgot to tell my favorite Christmas song, Santa Claus Is Coming To Town by Bruce Sprintstein. I love "The Boss". I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season with your families. I'm headed to my "happiest place on earth", Nanaland! I'll be sure & file a report while I'm there.

P.S. Robyn over at this blog is the person behind all of the "colourful" players. My friend Pam plays too.
