Jingle Bells...In The Frosty Air

 

Jingle bells....



Sleigh bells ring...










These old sleigh bells came from my grandparents farm. 
They hung from the ceiling out in the stand
 where they sold their fruits and vegetables.
As a child, I was lifted up so I could reach out and jingle the bells.
Happy memories.



My vintage Christmas spider...


Merry Christmas friends!

Our family is gathering and we will all be together soon.

Hope your celebrations will be filled with love.

Merry Christmas Laura!

I look forward to your posts so we can drool over your decorating. We miss the Connecticut antique flea markets, antique shoppes and quaint little shoppes so much! Now we live through the wonderful posts you do on those things. Thank you so much for helping us get through what we miss dearly.

Have a healthy and Happy New Year!
