She has wonderful things in her shop! One of my favorite Christmas Memories was when my Nana handed me a scrabpook that had been put together by my Great Grandmother with photos of me when I was very young! It was so special! I love those photos!

Growing up we would go to my Great Grandparents farm in North East Texas for Christmas. One year when I was 12 and in the "I am too cool for my family" mode there was a terrible ice storm. About 15 of us got trapped at the farm together. We sang songs, cooked, played cards, and even the pond froze over so everyone went out to slide on the ice. It was a chance to take a break from everything and just be together as a family. My all time favorite Christmas memory!

My favourite Christmas memory is of when I spent Chrismas morning with my boyfriend. It was just the two of us, our first Christmas. He handed me my last present and inside was a box of Ritz crackers! I love Ritz crackers! I set it aside, and he asked, "Aren't you hungry?" I wasn't, so he said, "Well, I'm kind of hungry..." I wasn't about to share my crackers with him *that's how much I love Ritz!*, but he insisted. I opened the box and there inside the lining was an engagement ring! He'd slit open the box, slit open the lining, dumped the crackers, put the ring in and glued it all back together to make it look like new. 7 years later, we're happily married, with 3 kids and I love him more than Ritz crackers!

huumm my favorite christmas memory is one from my last christmas living at home before I got married... My sisters and I all piled in the living room and under and near the grand Piano(it replaced our tree this year)was our multitude of gifts.... What a wonderful last christmas with my sisters (by ourselves before we all got married and moved away)

let me preface this story with, i was a beast when i was little. when we were little, my parents let us open up a present on christmas eve. this year in particular i was obsessed with a silky nightgown/robe set, like in "the nutcracker". that is what i wanted to open. instead, i opened a desktop fish tank. equally fabulous, just not what 'the beast' wanted. i threw a major fit, and probably ruined the day for everyone.
needless to say, santa delivered the next morning with my mint green and pink satin lovely. ahhhh, can you say magical? let this be a lesson to all in gratefulness.

oh...i love this jewelry...my favorite memory as a kid was the cocoa house...somehow, my mom saved enough hot cocoa boxes to get the biggest swiss miss house in the world!!! it had "red brick" and provided hours...even years of fun....can you still get those?

~Mama Skates~ said...

the one that stands out in my mind was when i was in middle school - i wanted a boombox sooooo bad! and my parents had me totally believing that i wasn't getting one....surprise! i must have laid on the floor of my room for 3 months straight, listening to the new cassettes they got me to go along with it (janet's rhythm nation & paula abdul's straight up album! ~giggle~)!

Ok, mine is a mixed emotion Christmas memory... In 2005, on the 22nd of December, I gave birth to my daughter Faith at 23 1/2 weeks. She passed the next day. On Christmas morning, my *then boyfriend* proposed to me. It was so romantic! For 2 months, he had everything planned, all of our friends and family were invited, he had the hall set with the date and time for New Years Eve ... all I had to do was say yes and get a dress! We talked it over due to us loosing our angel and decided that it would be the best way for us to cope with the incredible loss we just endured.... Then, the next year our 3rd daughter Kylie was born on the 2nd of December, 6 weeks early, but perfectly healthy and fine!! =] Ok, but if I lost you due to my ramblings, lol, my best Christmas memory was my husband proposing to me! =]

Jessica said...

My favorite Christmas memory is Oyster Stew Christmas morning. We all hated it growing up and never ate it. But it's not Christmas with out it now and I make it how I like it and it's good. ( =

Thanks for the giveaway!

We always traveled to my grandparents' house on Christmas day, which is a great memory in and of itself. But one year, as we were preparing to leave the day after Christmas, it was discovered that our car wouldn't start. That meant-- ANOTHER day a our grandparents'! Woo-hoo! I'm sure my parents weren't real pleased with the situation, but my brother and I LOVED it!

Casey said...

I always thought that it was neat the lengths that your parents would go to just to make sure you would still believe in santa. My parents would put gifts that were too big to fit down the chimney on top of the roof and just leave a note for us inside that we would have to ask dad for help because santa couldn't get it inside for us. Haha I hope someday I do that too for my little guy just to make sure he still believes.

Hmmm...that is tough! But I remember when I was young,my grandparetns owned an antique store, adn we used to go to auctions with them. There was this amazing antique porcelain doll that I thought was beautiful. I never even imagined that it could be mine, I just admired it. (I grew up with very little, so having something like that never entered my mind). On Christmas morning, you guessed it, my grandfather had gone and bought it and snuck it home. I opened it and BAWLED. I guess i should say that I am NOT a cryer. At all. My entire family cries at Hallmark commercials while I laugh at them. This was the first present I'd ever gotten that was just that special. :)

Trish said...

One memory is that no matter how hard we tried we could not go to sleep {me and the sis} so my dad said to run around the house, which is quite big. Plus, being only about 4 foot tall the snow was quite deep. :)
So we did it and we thought it was fun and we giggled and giggled till our tummies hurt. After all that we were more wired than when we started! Nice try dad :)

My favorite childhood Christmas memory is opening presents on Christmas Eve. All my friends were totally jealous! I think my parents were smart - no kids jumping on the bed at 4 am to open presents.

Santa came during our Christmas Eve church service...

Ashley said...

Being in the kitchen with grandma, helping her bake anything and everything. Wish I could do that now!

I loved attending the candlelight Christmas eve service at church. My favorite part was at the end of the service when they'd pass out candles to everyone and turn off the lights and we'd sing "Silent Night". It was a precious moment of peace to sing while the candles flickered and meditate on the things that really mattered.

It's so hard to pick just one memory. One that tops the list is when, every year, my family and I would go to a Christmas tree farm and pick out our tree. We would walk around looking for the very best one. I loved the smell of all those pine trees. And being young, the farm seemed so huge and it felt like we were in a maze that went on forever. After my dad chopped the tree down himself we would go back to the car for hot chocolate and snacks. I miss that.

Josy said...

She's such a creative spirit.... love her jewels and gems! One of my favorite Christmas memories is when I was growing up. My dad is (now retired) Presbyterian minister so we would always go to the Christmas eve service and I would always line up on the side of the church where my dad was so that I could take communion from him! The smell of candles, the sounds of everyone singing Silent Night - the quiet of the church at the end of the service... and the joy of all the "Merry Christmas" greetings as people left the church -- is and will always be a very special memory!

My daughter, Emma, was born on Dec. 22nd. I came home on the 24th, On Christmas night I sat near the Christmas tree with her with the lights shining off her pacifier. I just stared at her for hours while she slept. I will never forget that moment as I tried so hard to remember and ingrain everything in my mind. The sounds, the way she smelled, her little noises and faces. Precious time.

Diane said...

Just realized it had to be my childhood memory...that would be the year my cousins told me there was no Santa. I was so disappointed. My father called me into the kitchen and when I returned to the family room there were a couple presents for me that hadn't been there. I ran to the kitchen and did a head count, and everyone was still there. I had no idea who had left that there and not made a sound, so I believed in Santa again for the next couple years.

Beautiful items! What a wonderful Christmas gift to myself or someone I know :-)

Hmm...a favorite Christmas memory. Mayeb last year, sitting under the tree with my 11 day old son. We weren't sure we'd be home from the hospital in time for Christmas day, and we came home on the 22nd. What a blessing!

LuLu said...

Oh my favorite Christmas memory is when my 4 year old daughter asked for a chocolate robot for Christmas. SHe had just seen Veggie Tales Christmas DVD. In her mind she mixed too stories the Chocolate bunny from Rack Shack and Benny and toy robot from the Toy that Saved CHristmas. In her mind it equalled the "Chocolate RObot". Search HIGH and LOW for Candy companies who would make one. Only thing on her CHristmas List. We tricked her with a Chocolate Nutcracker instead. It work. It is my favorite memory reaching candy stores and calling all over the US.

That is why we still do it...even if it was in the rain this year. & paying the hefty price too. thanks...hope I win =) lovely little lovelies!!
